Spring/Summer 2014 collection – Veda Raheja

‘Tri – Faceted’ is a collection of evening dresses and separates inspired by the geometric lines & architecture of the famed self taught Japanese Architect Tadao Ando. It is commonly said about erstwhile truck driver and boxer “Ando’s architectural style is said to create a haiku effect, emphasizing nothingness and empty space to represent the beauty of simplicity.” Veda takes on the challenging task of translating some of those ideas into designing accouterments.

Veda has used geometry to generate minimalist lines, bold forms and subtle textures. She has teamed the basic contours with colour blocking in rich, bold and vibrant shades contrasted with greys and blacks.
