The long dress is a fit and flare dress with a broad elastic waistband and a V neck. It has 3D crochet flowers in the top half. It also comes with inseam pockets.
The subtle imperfections in the weave, texture and colors are a natural outcome of handcrafted textiles and not a defect.
Nandni is a Sanskrit word derived from the verbal root ‘nand’, which means ‘to rejoice’. Literally, Nandni means a woman who brings joy. The word represents a philosophy of life:…life is beautiful…live your life, love your life…seek happiness as it is not a destination, it’s a way of life. With a focus on organic fabrics and traditional Indian techniques, every Nandni creation tells a unique story which begins at the grassroots level. From handpicking the weavers and cloth to choosing a mix of dyes, prints, cuts, patterns, and styles, the collection is reflective of traditional Indian artisanal skills fused with modernity.
The inspiration behind NandniStudio is the love for handcraft, hence out garments will have surface ornamentation done by hand. Also, we love to explore texturing techniques.
The design and sourcing of the raw material happens in the studio. The sourcing of the fabrics is done from the weaver clusters directly. The production process starts with sampling and production based on orders received online or requested by the stores. The production is out sourced to a production house based in Mumbai, India Given the amount of waste that is generated out of the fashion industry, sustainable is the only way forward.
Also, the feel and texture of the organic fabrics is something that cannot be matched. I agree that sustainable clothing tends to be more expensive but as the awareness among people is increasing, they prefer to buy less and make them last instead of buying cheap, use and throw philosophy.
We derive inspiration from age old techniques that help us with surface ornamentation - be it crochet, bead work, hand embroidery, applique work. Based on these techniques, we also plan to start a line of handmade sustainable accessory line soon. We want to make products that transcend geographical boundaries and are seasonal less.
