Old World Charm is something that inspires me. Just the idea of owning something that has had a past feel and life awakens my mind and imagination. I always wonder how it was used before,and how can I make it more relevant now in my today's world.How inspiring are these old knickknacks isn't it?The Old armchairs,Old Swings, Old swinging teak doors,the dark toned photographs,the giant grandfather clock on the wall making its presence felt at each stroke all this says the charms of the bygone era.
Here Surrender to an undeniable presence of old world charm by DHRUV SINGH. It seems to me like a journey back to the 1960's and that is an installation depicting the textiles, crafts and charms of the bygone era by the Fashion Designer on 27 and 28 september at Ahmedabad.'JALSA' - a celebration of arts and crafts! As part of the AIAF - Ahmedabad International Arts festival, ELAN presents the installations.
Dhruv Singh graduated from the NIFT in 2012.He recently won the best Title for the best upcoming designer.As he says his style holds back in time,he interacts the opulent period.The inspiration revolves around local people,old cinema,antiques,different castes and their culture.Glorification and grandeur being his identity,his representation is metaphoric,glorious movements from past,drapes of elegance altogether a rendezvous with the rustic era.
Each frame is a Nostalgic memory of the old-world charm,- all this says the charms of the bygone era.
