Hyderabad-based textile designer Gaurang Shah presents his new collection “Chiffon”. The manifestation of the glamorous chiffon is given a bold spin by amalgamating various dying and printing surface techniques from textile clusters across India. Shah says on his Facebook page “The collection is a playful silken rendition for the modern day maharani”.
Gaurang strived for an extensive period to recreate chiffon on the handloom. After umpteen trials and experimentation; a 20 denier pure silk yarn was twisted in 3 ply and 2 ply with alternate twists, and then woven by handloom weavers in the interiors of India to create the textured and wrinkled chiffons, crafted to a 50 gram textile.
