Moomal” collection by ‘Raw Mango’

Raw Mango has always demonstrated creative visions, and explorations with textiles and crafts that have been innovative yet varied, season after season. For the finale show on day one at Lakmé Fashion Week 2020 Digital First Season Fluid Edition – Sanjay Garg’s festive collection “Moomal” revealed design sensibilities that transported the audience to his home state of Rajasthan, which is often considered as the crafting soul of India.

Inspired by heritage and deep-rooted in Indian culture, the collection took the audience through a trip down Sanjay’s memory lane, beckoned with fond memories of Rajasthan. Part nostalgic and part re-imagined for the future as he was inspired by the Rajasthani folklore, the new festive collection was a contrast and harmony of colors, textiles, and silhouettes.Moomal” collection by ‘Raw Mango’ Moomal” collection by ‘Raw Mango’ Moomal” collection by ‘Raw Mango’

Rajasthan encouraged Sanjay to turn his creative gaze on the bold colors and combinations of the region’s multiplicity of layers that live across colors, textiles, and motifs explored on poshaks, lehengas, jackets, and the graphically constructed cholis. The central motif – the peacock – dances amidst strong bold lines of textile and embroidery. There was a harmony that Sanjay merged into the textiles, silhouettes and colors, while his newly introduced Bandhej techniques gave this traditional craft a distinct contemporary focus.

Inspired by classic and folk forms of Rajasthan, Sanjay Garg’s “Moomal” collection for his label ‘Raw Mango’ was a grand homage to his home state where tradition and craft have been the mainstay of life for centuries and was an amalgamation of textile & culture.
