Sixth generation textile conservationist from Hyderabad, Sailesh Singhania brought to Delhi, a treasure trove of heritage handlooms, textiles and antique sarees

Marking his solo debut in the national Capital, textile revivalist and conservationist designer Sailesh Singhania exhibited his exquisite collection of handwoven saris painstakingly crafted by clusters of weavers from different parts of the country. Held at The Claridges Hotel, New Delhi, the exhibition titled Shaahana also featured luxe jewels from the house of Apala by Sumit.
 Highlights
Collection features a combination of age-old techniques like the Jamdani, combining it with Khadi, and embellishing it with intricate motifs inspired by modern Japanese art, thereby bringing a plethora of cultures and traditions together and culminating them into one final creation.
Each sari was woven painstakingly over a laborious period of over 8 months to match the unparalleled beauty of our muse.
The royal Banarasi silk, is assiduously woven with motifs inspired by the sun and the moon, the natural forces upon which life sustains and society thrives.
The motifs embody nature and its interaction with the human race, like an orchestrated symphony of life in the weave.
 Sailesh Singhania on his collection 
“We have brought Delhi a collection of heritage handloom sarees, revived from the era of the Nizam’s exalted dynasties. Our label celebrates the glory of Indian textiles such as Paithani’s, PatanPatola’s, tissue Kanjeevarams and Khadi Jamdani. I am humbled to be a part of the weaving community which carries such a rich and artistic history.”
Sumit Sawhney on his jewelry 
“Creating jewellery is my prayer, an ultimate joy, and my connect with Nature and God. It’s a pleasure to showcase along with Sailesh, the melange’ of our aesthetics would be of interest to the fashion mavericks, artists, brides to be, serenely graceful and the intellectuals.”
