I have been waiting to blog about Tejas Gandhi and his collection displayed at Signature Premier Fashion Week Kolkata since the time I saw it. Flowy gowns, smart cuts, nets and a perfect blend of Indian textiles with western silhouettes is what set him apart from the other participating designers.
His show at the Kolkata Fashion Week consisted of 32 dresses using 1000 metres of fabric. The dresses were mostly inspired by French styles and involved heavy use of net. One interesting factor to be noted about the use of net here is that the cuts were intended to give it a lace like finish without using actual lace. He has also used some really tactful ways to add the required shimmer to some of his outfits without resorting to the usual stones as he clearly claims not to be a fan of those dazzlers however pretty they may be.
Based in Kolkata, Gandhi did his fashion & textile designing course from Bhawanipur Eduction Society College. He has worked for quite a few television production companies and channels before starting up his own label. In short, refreshing, unconventional, creative designs strongly focused on bringing out the audacious and yet elegantly feminine side of women is what the designer had aimed at and I must mention being a women I was floored by his line of work.
