A few months back we told you about the journey of designer Vidhi Singhania , who caught our attention for her amazing work in Indian fashion. The designer, who spoke to us extensively about the revival the Kota and Benarsi weave during our first interaction, recently hosted another interesting exhibit with erstwhile Princess Nandini Singh of Jhabua (Madhya Pradesh) to pay homage to Indian crafts.

The occasion was ‘An Ode to Heritage’ that celebrated the finest creations from fashion and art at the designer’s store in New Delhi. While Ms Singhania showcased her latest line of ensembles that loomed from Benaras and Kota, Ms Singh curated various art forms from Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan under a common roof for visitors.

The art exhibit included some intricate works of Gond and Kalamkari forms, which was depicted through wildlife, temples, flora and fauna designs created in charcoal and acrylic medium.

 

Here’s a look at the select works from this exhibit that we found amazing. Do tell us what do think in the comments section below.

And, before we sign off we have to thank the wonderful Sanaa Singhania, who served some delish home-made dishes that we couldn’t stop munching!
