Celebrating the journey of traditions Upasana unveiled 'Khadarasi -The Regal essence of Hand-spinning' at Pondicherry Fashion Week'18.
A collection of royalty, grace and elegance through the threads of traditions. The design journey of Upasana is a stretch from Khadi, the most humble hand spun textile to Royal Banaras with exquisite hand woven golden yarns. The collection celebrates grandeur in sustainability of hand-spun textiles, Khadi and Varanasi weaver's Silk. Handmade to be versatile and timeless, our monochrome Khadi pieces are a chic spin on wardrobe classics. Combined with, Upasana's festive pieces which are all about conscious and ethical luxury along with up-cycled artwear, featuring Varanasi Weaver's silk.
Fashion has power, the power to change lives. The lives of farmers, spinners, weavers, printers, tailors, designers and many more who have invisibly woven their souls into what we wear. Upasana honours them all, consciously, at every stage of crafting our products. Shifting fashion to touch the soul instead of just the body, we believe life is interconnected. Beauty is beyond vanity. The process of creation is as precious to us as giving you a beautiful product. We honour flaws in weaving as part of honouring life, streak of shade in dye as part of natural shades. We silently celebrate the fading of natural dyes as we gracefully watch ourselves change through time. We design for mortality while honouring life, nature and inner growth.
