Ace fashion designer Rohit Bal, known for his intricate and elaborate designs with lotus and peacock motifs, says that the beauty of Kashmir always influences his work and it has become a part of his genetic structure.
“The beauty and passion of Kashmir have always been the driving force behind my work and artistry. Everything that I do has Kashmir in it; it is ingrained in my genes now. It’s a part of my genetic structure so no matter what I do, it will have a bit of Kashmir in it,” Bal told IANS here.
He added: “Subconsciously, sometimes I don’t even know I’m doing it. But it’s all Kashmir coming out somewhere or the other. When you are influenced so greatly, so intensely and for such a long time by a certain kind of beauty that will transform or come out of you somewhere or the other. For me, it comes out in my work.”
The designer, who is set to showcase a new collection at the`Van Heusen and GQ Fashion Nights 2016′ on Sunday here, said: “I am presenting a very contemporary classic menswear collection. This collection has a modern appeal with a slight deviation from the wedding wear. I have incorporated plenteous Indian techniques on western silhouettes. The collection has an interesting mix of casual, evening and occasion wear.” IANS
