DESIGN DIARY BY RAMESH DEMBLA

JASMEEN DUGAL  (click here to know more about this blogger)

India Luxury Style Week Men's Edition runs from 24—28 May with a number of designers showcasing the hottest looks in menswear. Since it's the sole pioneering men's showcase in India there's excitement in the fraternity and fashion conscious set. In conversation with Curator and Managing Director of ILSW Men's Edition — and designer par excellence — Ramesh Dembla on menswear, his design aesthetic and what we can expect at his opening show! In conversation with the visionary. 

 

''De​signing allows me to reflect something personal. That's why we are all creatives, aren't we? I chose my field because it allowed me to be who I am and produce the work I stand for… tell my story and express my vision through my work. There are times when it's very easy to forget about wearability because you don't see your product as a garment, but as a work of art. So I try to picture myself wearing one of my pieces. If it's not something I would wear, it will not see the light of day!!

 

I let my designs speak for me. If somebody wants to be a judge of my character, then please go ahead and judge me by my clothes!! They narrate my story and they will tell you who I am. I envision my garments worn by a man who makes an effort in putting together his look. He is confident in his own skin and loves being playful!! This season, my collection has my favourite palette — black with a touch of red. Inspiration comes to me from the way I perceive the world around me. How I see it and how I wish it was. A subtle balance amidst chaos, without being boring. The mood is "classy grunge". Is that a thing? *chuckles* But, a grunge-inspired story, narrated in my personal style. I have used a lot of fabrics to play with texture. There are sheers and dense opaques—embellished with beautiful hand embroideries by my talented karigars. 

 

People often ask how I keep myself calm and peaceful during pre-show jitters but I don't believe in slowing down the tide or safeguarding myself against the blow. Solve one hurdle at a time and face everything head on. Nothing lasts forever, even cold november rain!! And, with few days left, I am looking forward to opening India Luxury Style Week with our brand ambassador, Akshay Kumar. I really admire him. Akshay has been such a strong influence on the youth of India. A man who can manage winning the respect of an entire nation, loved by his family and friends, is a gem we should be proud of. He has always been by my side. He is a great visionary and an even better friend and I hope everybody finds a friend like I have one in him.''
