Rinku Sobti chose to have the embroideries inspired by fruits on her outfits which portray a sweet essence of the craftsmanship of the weavers. Her collection has the rich colours of Varanasi along with modern designs that include chic style dresses, flowy skirts and understated jackets.
Designer Rinku Sobti says, “Despite their tribulation, the destitute artists never fail to amaze me with the exotic creations of their nimble fingers. It is the very unnatural duality – the birth of elegance in impoverished hands – that ignites my ambition to revive the handloom. No matter what the external circumstances are for our weavers, they are the ones who have the talent, learning and passion for art. This collection is dedicated to them. They are the ones who should eventually reap the fruit of labour.”
Rinku Sobti’s new line will be available at her standalone store in Delhi and for purchase online too!
