Curators Rupa Sood and Sharan Apparao recently organised the second edition of Nayaab, an exhibition to showcase the finest textile traditions of India. The three-day exhibition, held in New Delhi, showcased the uniquely designed couture creations by nineteen talented designers who used traditional Indian textiles techniques in their creations.

With this edition of the exhibition, the curators brought a wide selection of the Indian weaves paying tribute to the ancient textiles of the country. The exhibition encapsulated the aesthetic sensibilities of designers presenting their work of Indian textiles in modern fashion.

“Nayaab is an effort to celebrate Indian textiles. As curators, our effort is to present the best of the designers for our customers. We do a thorough research of each designer before collaborating for the exhibition. However, in this initiative we ensure to present not just the Indian weaves, but even the traditional techniques and methods to craft the textiles. Designers use different crafts to enhance their designs and it is every core together - the embroidery, the weaves, the dyeing to create each piece that we exhibit at Nayaab,” Sood and Apparao told Fibre2Fashion.

The curators carried out a thorough research to select the designers for the exhibition and helped them understand the idea behind Nayaab.

“The designers are chosen with thorough market research of their latest collections. In the process, we ensure the designers comprehend the quintessence of Nayaab as this helps them create the collection in sync with our exhibition. However, in terms of the techniques and the weaves, we always discuss and share inputs with each other but eventually we leave it to the designers to decide and present the final collection, as they understand the market well,” continued the curators.

Speaking about their plans of scaling up, the curators said, “We certainly want to take the concept forward into a more brilliant work that should come out of Nayaab as the whole idea of Nayaab is to bring out something really out of the ordinary. At the moment, we have no plans to scale up the event. We want to keep it small, keep it contained, so that we can maintain the quality we started with.” (KD)
