Stylemart Fashion Show 2014 – Athena

Western style long gowns are in demand these days, especially for formal events like wedding receptions. In this segment of Stylemart Fashion Show 2014, I present a collection quite different from the run-of-the-mill evening gowns produced by the international designers.

With an ethnic touch, inspired by the saree drapes with a rouch or wrap around the hips and drape over the shoulder, these creations generate elegant silhouettes that perfectly complement the Indian figure.

I dedicate this collection to Athena, and attribute the element of wind and sky to her. And the collection is soft and fluid with colors mirroring the hues of the sky and the clouds.

Athena is the virgin goddess of all things good. She is stands for wisdom, the better part of bravery and heroism. She represents courage in our battles that we wage everyday to protect and nurture our homes. She is the inspiration behind all our creativity. Plato calls her the divine intelligence, and she who knows divine things. The favorite child of Zeus, Athena sprang full grown in armour from his forehead, and was allowed to use his weapons including his thunderbolt. To bravery, wisdom and intuition, our best qualities — this segment is my homage.
