Deriving his inspiration from some of the palaces of India, the designer has explored the state of Rajasthan which is known for its beautiful structures and stunning architecture. Scattered all around the state, there are palaces and forts which have a uniqueness of their own, that shout out sagas of old glory and exquisite decor. Some of the richness of these can be witnessed through the remnant of the wall art still beautifully preserved within the interiors of most.
Exploring and capturing the surviving motifs and elegant colour schemes from these, Rajdeep Ranawat brings to you a collection with a fresh take on the vintage wall arts of The Palaces. His collection is an amalgamation of the old design with a twist of the very modern applications.
The collection has been split into multiple themes based on the usage of various motifs and colours and named after the six heritage cities of Rajasthan; that are Kota, Ajmer, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Samode and Jaipur.
Rich silk based fabrics, embellished with genuine crystal from Swarovski compliment the design elegance of The Palace and assist each garment in narrating a story of their own, as they mesmerize you into a time where kings, kingdom and a very colourful culture thrived.
Designer Rajdeep Ranawat says; “Being a Rajput my roots lie within the beauty of the State, thus I wanted to portray its art and culture in the form of contemporary and modern following the trend palette and silhouettes of the contemporary women. Silhouettes used in the collection are shirts, bohemian tops, tunics, resort kaftans, palazzo pants, slim skirts, jump suits, dresses and a range of scarves and stoles to complete the look”.
