Day 5

Rina Dhaka 

 The Collection titled “Book of Courage” consists of heavily ruffled sarees and kurtas featuring sheer textile layers.


The collection pays homage to migrant workers, their grit. It reflects on the fortitude, looking at adversity in the eye and yet marching on to a place which is “home”. A metaphor for security, warmth and comfort. A nest, allegorical of how we all have done the same. 

White, cream, light pink, and beige with silver embellishments, frills, and pearl details. Models wore large red tikas and black kajol on their eyes for a traditional aesthetic

Designer Rina Dhaka on her Collection

“They say, once an arrow has to be launched it must be pulled backwards. Over the last 30 years, both professionally and personally I have weathered many storms. However, in Buddhism they always teach you to accept challenges and that’s just what I did. Maybe that’s why I could, on some micro level, connect with the migrant workers, who have been part of my arduous trajectory to getting to where I have reached. I strongly believe every word has consequences and silences too. Even though many people dissuaded me from talking about this topic—- I stood my ground. Their plight reverberated with how our eco systems got waylaid by a virus. It taught me the fragility of life, the need for greater humility, and how we are merely a spec in the bigger universe.”
