Collection – Phir Kath, (to change the way you look at things.)

Phir kath.....
(To change the way you look at things)

The collection is an effort to throw light on a long lost custom of a small village in India, (bhand pather) which once used to be the voice of the valley. It’s an essential timeless collection that depicts the accepting, spontaneous and flexible nature of the convention.
The collection is an amalgamation of contemporary silhouette with traditional textiles using sustainable design practices which are not only limited to the use of organic fabrics but, also includes natural dyeing, de-construction and upcycling.
the garments produced are modular and that can be worn multiple ways, offering variety to the individual wearing it.
These designs are procured by deconstructing some old men’s Pheran, (customary outfit of Kashmir). If you look carefully, Pheran is a long piece of rectangular cloth {robe} made by the amalgamation of 7 smaller rectangles. I have deconstructed it again into those 7 pieces and orchestrated it in a way giving it a new character. These garments you see are all obtained by deconstructing the old/used traditional robes.
About
Mehak Tariq Beigh who is a graduate from Pearl Academy of fashion, New Delhi. Strongly believes in the idea of giving back to the society. And as a designer feels that the best way to do it is by working closely with the design clusters as well as uplifting traditional crafts and textiles. She is a conscious, socially responsible fashion designer; who believes in working towards fair trade. Throughout these four years in a design college she gained a keen interest in working towards revival of the culture and environment. Her graduating collection was an effort to get into light the rich traditions and cultures that are no longer being practised. It was an amalgamation of contemporary silhouettes with traditional textiles using sustainable design practices which are not only limited to the use of organic fabrics but, also includes natural dyeing, de-construction, visible mending and upcycling.
