Hot & The Happening
Rezwana never knew she
could do it. In the early days, designing cloths for her loved ones
was just a hobby. This mere hobby turned out to be the greatest passion
of her life. At Drik Picture Library Rezwana's Wardrobe presents 2nd
anniversary and Eid design festival. Rezwana's first love is Jamdani.
Her family had long relationship with Noor Mohammad's weaver family.
Rezwana added her flair with the age-old tradition modifying the designs
a bit and Noor Mohammad reproduced her dreams. She introduced karchupi
in Jamdani 'paar'. A piece of these jamdani would cost tk9, 000 to tk15,
000. Rezwana explored in to many other things. She designed cushion
covers with benaroshi saree. She also plays her talents with muslin,
silk and khadi. She even designed jewelleries. The exhibition also includes
khadi fatua and silk scarfs with hand stitches. Starting from October
25 the display will continue for seven days.
With the background of Fine Arts and long experience from designing
for Aarong and Mayasir Shahela Khundkar is going solo. Her designs have
a homegrown flavour chosen by many. To get hold of one of her artistic
creation, visit Ayna at Anam Rangs Plaza, Shatmoshjid road, Dhanmondi.
Fans will be surprised with Dressydale's design concept this year.
Primitive art, calligraphy, and ethnic art motifs with a fusion
of urban image is about to blow them off, and that's not all folks,
the most striking of all would be the 9 pieces of exclusive Jamdani
saree made especially for Eid.
