Exploring the seas of lace and fine net fabrics, Malasa, a collaboration between Nimrit Gill & Jyoti Gill, explores the charm of the French textural belt. From the fine fabrics of lace and georgette to the enchanting embellishments with sequins, glass beads and pearls, Malasa taps into the French pool of history. French inspiration and the Parisian romance crosses paths with the Indian body of design as Malasa explores Indian silhouettes with a twist of modern drapes this season. The mood set explores the depth of romance as flowy, fluid silhouettes form the headline of the collection. Long jackets, floor length anarkalis with net bodice, sarees with net blouses, stretch satin and lace churidar are some contemporary cuts that Nimrit & Jyoti have explored with this new collection. Their absolute affinity towards the Indian design aesthetics is evident from the fact that this collection taps into French fabrics and embellishments, yet managing to glue in Indian silhouettes. Celestial Rhapsody from Malasa boasts of interplay of tones and a colour palette that screams French grandeur and romance. Light, dreamy pastels and shades of ivory, whites and beige make their way into this collection. The colour palette united with the extremely delicate handiwork of pearls and sequins gives Celestial Rhapsody a dream-like quality.
In a family where the love for design is a part of the genetic make up, ‘Malasa’ was the most obvious move for designer Nimrit Gill. Taking after her grandmother who was the force behind SAZ boutique, New York, showcasing her line at the finest stores in New York, Nimrit decided to launch her own line of western wear at the age of nineteen. The design influencers shaping her aesthetics also include her mother, Jyoti Gill, who has been a fashion designer for the last fifteen years and her father who has been in the export business of embroidered garments to the biggest pret houses in the world, for thirty years. With a masters in fashion design from Marangoni Institute of Design in London, Nimrit has decided to walk the path trodden yet, unexplored by someone with her experience and rich lineage of generations.
