FMW Follows Krishna Mehta’s Manipur Expedition

After the scintillating success and rave reviews received for her designs and weaves from Kutch, Gujarat(at the last season of LFW), Krishna Mehta now focusses her talents on Eastern India, a talented yet oft ignored region which is rich in its heritage of weaves and textiles. Krishna Mehta will be showing at the LFW on the Indian Textile Day ie 26th August 2013, bringing to life the craftforms and textile traditions of Manipur. The show will be an ethereal amalgamation of Krishna’s designs and silhouettes with Manipuri craftforms.

FMW captures Krishna’s visit to Imphal Valley over the past six months to work with the weavers and design a line that beautifully portrays their traditional textile forms, within her signature style and trends. Krishna is one of the few designers to work with Manipuri Handlooms in a contemporary presentation.
