For the masses fashion is just the raison d'etre for FTV, but it is an art just
as any other. And here is an unusual confluence.
Conceptualized by art critic and curator Atiya Amjad, Prêt-á-Palette, a show examining the congruence between the art and fashion, is on for a period 15 days at Daira. The show is Daira's ongoing initiative to explore new domains of imagination.
The event features the works of Prearna Sanghi, an award winning fashion designer,
and G Pramod Ram Reddy, a painter who elucidates the enchanting mysteries of beauty
through fashion. The synergy between art and fashion is natural, and this show,
Prêt-á-Palette, demonstrates how one discipline nourishes the other.
Says Pramod Ram Reddy, "Fashion is fickle - here today, gone tomorrow. And therefore, as an artist, I have always been held in fascination by fashion. Its whimsical culture, in fact, injects into me the spirit that propels my creative faculties to peak."
Prearna Sanghi has always been inspired by the rich corpus of Indian arts and
crafts. And as a designer, she attempts to incorporate that inspiration into her
work. Prêt-á-Palette represents one such attempt. It is a part of her continuing
endeavor to subvert the conventional perspective of viewing art and craft objects
as mere display items. She applies the aesthetics of crafts to the texture of
her garments. In the macramé line, she has translated the fine look of the filigree
art wherein yarn is processed to produce textile dramas.
