My black garden (Blouse)
" All the colours inside her wild, disorganised mind where pushing each other to gain prominence. Let me get to you one-by-one, she pleaded. But, never did they listen. As she smiled sheepishly at her own mindâ€™s disobedience, she finally let go of trying to control it. She let go of all her apprehensions. She let go of all her fears. And then, the colours took over. They burst forth instantly and came together to become her very own brilliantly black garden!!â€
Description : The gorgeous print on the cotton blouse is known as Kalamkari. Kalamkari literally translates to â€˜pen craftâ€™. This art form involves exceptionally talented artisans painting beautiful patterns and designs on the fabric and then dyeing it using natural colours. The art is said to have originated in ancient India, where artists travelled from village to village, telling mythological stories through art. These artists used to draw the depictions from the stories and use simple vegetable dyes to add colour. Today, there are digital advancements that can make the work of artisans easier; block printing of Kalamkari designs is also in demand. Whatever form it takes, the heart of the art, the designs, remain ever green. This Assam silk kalamkari blouse is a unique combination of a traditional art-form and a super trendy blouse pattern. In short, it is sure to put the spotlight unmistakably on you and turn heads without fail. Play it up by wearing it with chunky silver earrings and an antique maan-tikka or keep it subtle with simple yet bold geometric earrings. You can really amp up your look with a statement neckpiece that will complement the neckline. So, all you fashionistas out there, this blouse is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. What are you waiting for?
