A Royal Look By Punit Balana

Darpan News Desk, 01 Nov, 2018
  • A Royal Look By Punit Balana
 

Punit Balana’s new collection is perfect for the free-spirited woman, who plays by her own fashion rules! 

 
 
 
Designer Punit Balana’s new collection, Gulabi Chowk, is inspired by the pride of the pink city Jaipur, the magnificent Amer Fort which boasts of immense fortifications with unexpected beauty and charm of Jalebi Chowk and the Seesh Mahal. 
 
Showcasing Punit’s signature hand block printing, the collection is designed using Jaipur’s traditional 500-year-old Sanganeri hand block printing technique. This form of textile printing till date holds a prominent place in the world of weavers and craftsmen, with fine lines and intricate detailing being the specialty of Sanganeri style. Using natural organic dyes, colours and eco-friendly techniques, the entire process from making of the wooden blocks to printing, has been handcrafted by the talented “Chippas,” the artisans of Sanganer, Jaipur, providing them a means of livelihood.  
 
 
Being his home town, Jaipur and its beautiful historical monuments have always played an important role in Punit’s collections. In Gulabi Chowk, the intricate detailing of the patterns of the royal architecture of Jalebi Chowk and Sheesh Mahal have been beautifully captured in the motifs and designs. 
 
 
Dori work and glass embroidery further enhances the collection, celebrating the rich architecture and reminisce of the royals. Rich fabric, dramatic silhouettes including flared skirts, Gujarati Kediya, Gararas, saris with modern blouses and structured jackets makes Gulabi Chowk a stylish expression of comfort and creativity imbibed in one. The entire collection is dominated by the beautiful colour pink, combined with robin egg blue and steel colour, spelling effortless glamour.

Designer Exclusive: Payal Singhal
While designing for fashion week is a more streamlined process, I’m constantly looking for inspiration all through the year, and [then] put these together in 3-4 collections a year. I’m forever scouring through Pinterst, taking down notes, sketching in my diary. My design process is a bit erratic, but there is a method to the madness, and that is what gives every piece its essence and ties it together.
