Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
This has to be one of my most admired and appreciated quotations of Rabindara.
Kolkata saw another innovative and marvelous may of paying tribute to World Poet Rabindranath Tagore. Rajlakshmi Ghosh, an acclaimed pianist and fashion designer blended Rabindranath’s music, poetry and the fashion of his era which was a rare treat to the audience in her show ‘Romance with Tagore’.
Romance with Tagore’ was devoted to the revival of ancient culture, literature, art and fashion where the designer projected that Tagore was the Indian renaissance response to the revival of the West, not only through his musical creations and literature but through fashion and lifestyle as well.
Said the designer,”I wanted to showcase that Tagore had influenced our fashion and lifestyles not only in his time but even today. The Bengali aristocrats indulged in wearing silks, muslins and tant in those times. Tagore’s characters indulged in these dresses and I have tried to give it a modern look.”
Her works are an attempt to bring the contemporary fashion into concepts of Tagore as all women aspire to look traditional yet modern in everything she wears.
“I have tried to showcase an electric mix in my collection here of the traditional matched with modern concept to give it a contemporary fashionable look. This is also the launch of my new range of clothes keeping Durga Puja,” she added.
