Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week, Spring-Summer 2021

Day One

Payal Jain @ LMIFW SS’21

 Titled– Holy Script’. Collection of free flowy comfort dresses in floral prinrs. The fabrics have been created by weaving clusters in and around Banaras, blends of cotton and silk ‘Chanderi’, Organza and ‘Munga’.


Traditional jacquard techniques like ‘Katrauan’, ‘Kadua’ woven in silk yarn float into shear, fluid and flowing silhouettes. The natural, weightless quality of these fabrics depict the lightness of spirit, and emptiness of the soul.

Color Canvas

 The color palette is vivid and vibrant, inspired by traditional Buddhist ‘Thangka’ paintings, in rich hues of Vermillion, Lapis blue, Emerald green and Sulphur yellow, with strokes of painted canvases.





This has been a personal journey introspecting, appreciating life’s beauty, understanding the silence within and emptiness without. 

  Beginning from the Ghats of Benaras, into narrow alleys of Assi Ghat, experiencing the silence of Sarnath, wandering amidst by-lanes of Mc Leod Ganj, and historic Buddhist monasteries adorned with rich and vivid ‘Thangkas’, a sip of salted tea and home baked bread, with soul stirring chanting and reverberating drum beats…..such is the journey that culminated in the ‘Holy Script’.

 This story is woven into the warp of timelessness, the weft of meditative bliss, on a loom of ‘Oneness’ that goes beyond name, religion, tradition and ritual, language and culture; the ultimate sense of Awareness! A place where energy flows from Kashi to Sarnath, Holy rivers to mountains, Tibetan art to Indian textile, where Buddha’s first sermon still resonates, where history and mythology amalgamate, and there is only silence and emptiness.
