This garment derives its inspiration from the colors and textures of the damage done
by humans on the holy Ganges river.
The colors pay homage to the sanctity and holiness of the river, while the textures are
a testament to the garbage it harbors.

The chunky yarn was created by mixing deadstock boucle yarn, interwoven with tweeds, accenting the texture.
The use of the color white is synonymous with Ganga’s liberation.

This look is a true reflection of the battle raged between religion and reality.
A testament to the holy river that boasts mythological sanctity, but environmental calamity.

The ensemble includes a V-Neck dress, ribbed pants, and a sheer organza shirt.
The color-blocked V-neck dress is hand-knit using a Donegal tweed yarn.
The 3×3 rib pants were programmed by the designer and knit on the Stoll industrial knitting machine.
The look embodies the paradoxical and multifarious meaning that the River Ganges
holds for different individuals.

The plastic embodies a blurred reality, clouding our understanding of the true nature of the river
with maroon and pink accented overlays.
