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, 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.
Jamdani weaving is extremely time-consuming and labour intensive due to the intricacy of motifs that are created directly on the loom using the discontinuous weft technique. A dense thread is added by hand to the fine warp threads to create motifs, inlaid into the fabric.
Jamdani fabric for Ayesha has been handwoven in Murshidabad, West Bengal, India. The motifs have been kept intentionally simple; the 200-count fabric is soft and flows easily, perfect for contemporary, everyday living. The idea is to encourage the adoption of Jamdani fabrics as a sustainable modern fashion choice, while providing employment opportunities for heritage Jamdani weavers and their communities.
