“Crossing Borders” under the label Priyanka Gangwal, is a collection of inspirations tied together by a common concept revolving around the idea of a ‘Struggle’ to escape boundaries and limitations. It’s a journey between being tied down and freedom.
The collection focuses on chapters like a prisoner wanting to escape bars or a nomad refugee contemplating to cross the borders. A bird forcing itself out of a cage to humans wanting to break their social and sexual boundaries. The process of design and visual connections is what brings the whole concept together.
The silhouettes and construction throughout the collection remain classic interwoven with a modern approach. Different weights of satins, medium weight weaves and a range of grunge mesh are the fabrics used throughout the collection.
Self and subtle stripes combined with delicate handwork, chain embroidery and artwork translates the theme of crossing borders through the mesh and metallic threads. Stylized coats and blazers, high-waisted trousers and corseted waistlines along with semi-pleated collared dresses finished with embellished belts are some of the key pieces of the collection that convey the theme.
Fabric manipulations and minimalism along with constant juxtaposition and blurs the lines between menswear and womenswear.
