Gypsy Love Potion: Pranay Baidya’s Collection Launch shows that Fashion is an Art Form

I have always loved to sing; Somebody once said that the only time I am calm is when I let my feelings out through music. When I was a young girl, I used to have copies and drawing book; I was never imaginative, but I found my favourite images in those pretty books I bought at the book fair. When I look back at the years of my growth and change, I find that my way of dressing has constantly changed; I have gone from my phase of being a tshirt-clad, football-playing teenager, to being an oddly dressed tween who over-accessorized, till I became a woman who loves to put together bits and pieces of different worlds for something that’s unique. Thus, through songs, images and personal style, I have expressed myself, and in them, I have found peace.

Gypsy Love Potion: A Platform for Music, Fine Arts, and Fashion

As a person who has loved these forms of art, the concept of “Gypsy Love Potion” intrigued me deeply. It was a soiree of music, art and fashion, held in March at The Park. Yes, music, fine arts, and fashion shared a single stage that evening, as pianist Jennifer Heemstra, violinists Wendy Case and Kirsten Docter, cellist Amir Eldan, artist Reena Dewan and fashion designer Pranay Baidya came together with what they do best. While Heemstra, Case, Docter and Eldan played Brahms’ piano quartet, tango love songs, and pop hits, Dewan painted extempore. This was followed by Pranay Baidya’s collection launch, as his Resort Cocktail 17 collection got presented through a catwalk dance!

Indeed, Pranay’s collection rightfully shared the platform with other art forms. In each number, this talented couturier has presented traditional Indian textiles in the form of contemporary silhouettes. He has experimented with the contrasting textures, treatments, and techniques. Silks, muslin, chiffons and organza, with block printing, digital printing, intricate thread and zari embroidery, and box pleats, in the form of gowns, lehengas, maxi skirts, sarees, jacket blouses, and even contemporary-ethnic menswear: it’s all wearable art – styled with Swarovski SS-17 jewels.

As I have always mentioned in my previous blogs, I love fusion fashion. Naturally, I fell in love with how he has brought together Indian and Western styles. But Gypsy Love Potion, as a whole, was more than just Pranay Baidya’s collection launch. Fashion has evolved and changed through the ages. It has been an expression of creativity. Just like other forms of art. Yet, people still question its status as another art form. Gypsy Love Potion became an occasion where fashion shared the platform with music and fine arts. The three seamlessly blended with each other, to produce one fine elixir for the soul.
