Debashri Samanta, believes in merging modern silhouettes with a hint of earthy sensibility. This Gen Next designer draws inspiration and engages with weavers around West Bengal to create the balance between down-to-earth sensibility and high-fashion boldness – giving a couture feel to her designs.
A graduate of the National Institute of Fashion Technology, 2007 batch, Samanta uses innovative fabrics for designing modern silhouettes. She experiments with unusual textures, varied constructions and abstractions that blend to create the feel of modern-rustic. Targeted at the new-age woman who enjoys both exclusivity and her roadside chai, this eponymous label, Debashri Samanta was launched in 2011. It emphasizes unique handloom weaves with a touch of statement drapes that meld into comfortable and ready-to-wear clothes.
Samanta’s LFW SR 2013 collection draws its inspiration from ‘yarns.’ She shares “The charm of my collection lies in its interesting use of yarn which celebrates its essence, despite being a fundamental material in the construction of fashion garments.This collection is rich in the workmanship of our weavers and tailors. Surprising to most, the entire collection has been created from handloom cottons!”
Her collection will include gorgeous art-like textures that have been used to form constructed couture jackets, tops, bottoms etc., along with hand-woven fabrics like Kantha to create inspired billowy bottoms and dresses.
