PRIEST LONDON PILLAR: 4
'Nandini' is a Sanskrit word derived from the verbal root ‘nand’, which means ‘to rejoice’. Literally, Nandni means a woman who brings joy. The word represents a philosophy of life.
Every Nandni creation tells a unique story which begins at the grassroots level. From handpicking the weavers and fabric to choosing a mix of dyes, prints, cuts, patterns, and styles, Nandni Studio brings unique designs reflective of traditional Indian artisanal skills fused with modernity.
Living by the broader theory of handwork at NandniStudio, this collection makes immense use of hand embroidery and crochet appliques.
All the techniques in this collection have been chosen such that they add to the texture of the overall product resulting into a piece of art. This piece of art is an object of desire to be cherished for a longer period of time and does not belong to a particular season.
Inspired by plant life, especially from the variety of leaves that nature has to offer. Each garment has been hand-painted using leaves using the technique of pressure painting, transforming it into a unique, fashionable line of clothing. Instead of using a traditional wooden block, paint is applied on a leaf and pressed on the fabric. This leaves a unique imprint on the fabric displaying the veins of each leaf. Each block is painted independently making each print look unique. The imperfections of hand printing add to the beauty of the garment.
Keeping in line with their primary inspiration – life – Nandni uses nature’s most beautiful fabric – handspun, handwoven cotton.
