INIFD Student Kavita Sharma’s signature product “Kavvi”, recites the easy and free flowing lifestyle of the people of city beautiful in a very distinctive and classy manner. She believes in the philosophy of sacred Bhagwat Gita, which has a famous saying “Soul is birth less, eternal, imperishable and timeless and is never terminated when the body is terminated”. Kavita’s collection “It’s a beautiful Life” is inspired by a child’s world. The collection is fresh, new, beautiful and full of wonder and excitement. Kavita has used nature inspired colours like green, blue, yellow, grey, red & rust on ivory white in her collection.
Kavita has applied a unique technique of burning the raw edges of pure silk fabric pieces that have been beautifully put together to create scenes from the surroundings. This encompasses the glory and joy of life in its full bounty, to create a rustic and charming look on the garments.
The burning technique creates a wonderful effect of the contrast and the frayed edges to give out a very raw yet elegant look to the semi - formal elegant range. Different techniques like appliqué work, tucks and hand painting have been used on fabrics like royal silk and silk jute. Surely, a chirpy collection with eye popping visual appeal by INIFDian Kavita Sharma has helped her collection to stand out of the general crowd.
