These are some of my works created for my eponymous fashion label “Nimita Rathod” retailed in some of the coveted fashion stores across the Indian subcontinent and internationally. This is a collage of textures from across the Nimita Rathod fashion collections aptly titled VECTORS. “VECTORS” is an opulent amalgamation of modern surface techniques using traditional textiles and processes.

“VECTORS” is an opulent amalgamation of modern surface techniques with the traditional textiles and processes.
Vectors is a study of lines and strokes in the form of intricate fabric manipulation, pleats folds and tucks, matte and shine blended effortlessly with an array of colors. Unconventional prints are used to accentuate the mood of the seasons that are further more enhanced by the use of embellishments in subtle textures and surfaces created by intricate cutwork, tucks and contemporary embroidery. Fabrics that are used for the collection are rich silks, satins, tweeds, velvets, chiffon’s, silk cottons and luxurious silk brocades that are created in collaboration with silk weavers in Banares.
The silhouettes are structured, elegant, engineered and close to the body with occasional spurts of free flowing breezy drapes.
