The Story Behind The Dress : Popular American dancer, director and choreographer, Twyla Tharp's had a significant influence on modern dance by being a pioneer in combining classical ballet with contemporary movements. This dress is inspired by her creative mind and vision. In her book , Creative Habit, the first chapter is titled "I walk into a white room". Now imagine wearing this playful yet sensual dress, with its deliberately controlled ikat blurriness and feminine tassels and walking onto an empty canvas. The flow of the Twyla dress encourages you to move, jump, dance, twirl, reminds you that you are the director and choreographer of your own canvas that is called life.
Ikat is a dyeing technique used to weave patterns into textiles. It uses a technique called resist dyeing, where threads are tied and dyed before weaving. One of the most noticeable and unique attributes of surrounding an Ikat pattern is the blurriness in the design. It can also be considered to be a global design movement that spans across the centuries and originated in Asia. The word “ikat” has Indonesian and Malay roots, roughly translating to mean “tie and bind”.
The handloom Ikat fabrics sourced by Ayesha originate from the weaving cluster of Telangana, India. This design has been woven by multi-generational master weaver, Yadagiri Gajam from Puttapakka, Telangana.
