Indian designer Vaishali Shadangule makes his Paris Haute Couture Week 2021 debut with the “Breath” couture collection
Founder of the eponymous label Vaishali S, designer Vaishali Shadangule made her debut at Paris Haute Couture Week 2021 with her “Shwas” collection, which means “Breath”. She was the first female designer and one of two international designers invited by the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion to present their brand’s couture collection at the event.
The event took place live at the Lycée Victor Duruy, a prestigious high school and an emblematic Parisian monument on the left bank in Paris.
Speaking about showcasing her collection at PHCW, Vaishali said in a statement, “I am delighted to have been selected by such a prestigious platform to showcase my passion for textiles and my commitment to sustainability.
Vaishali’s Couture Collection featured 20 garments, showcasing craftsmanship from all over India, including merino wool woven in Maheshwar, Khun in Karnataka, and other indigenous weaves in West Bengal. The collection is inspired by nature and its flow of energy. The patterns are inspired by the lines and curves of corals, tree bark and other natural textures.
“As an Indian woman showing herself at the pinnacle of global tailoring, this is a milestone. India has a strong design language in terms of craftsmanship combined with social impact, the richness of technique beyond embroidery or simple workmanship. The idea was to place Indian weaving on the highest platform, in its purest form, ”added the designer.
Widely known as “wearable art,” the collection consists largely of darker shades suitable for the fall-winter season. It blends traditional weaves and techniques with dramatic silhouettes and includes some of the designer’s signature techniques such as stringing, technical deconstruction and texturing.
The 43-year-old designer launched the Vaishali S brand in 2001, due to her love for classic Indian weaves and textiles. Vaishali has already showcased her designs at New York Fashion Week.
