Known for expressing her fashion aesthetics with prints, Mumbai-based designer Aarti Vijay Gupta showcased her collection ‘I Love Music’ at Vivanta by Taj, Bangalore on Saturday.

The collection is an ode to the resurgence of learning based on classical sources which is an amalgamation of art and music.

Inspired by the Cubism and Surrealism, she has used musically inspired masterpieces by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali in her designs. Dali’s The Red Orchestra and Picasso’s The Old Guitarist have been mirrored in sarees and long skirts which takes the term ‘wearing art’ to a literal intensity.

Art and music

have always intermingled to create history and played their part in giving birth to iconic styles over the years. Fashion has always been closely linked with art and music. With her latest collection, Aarti presents a cultural tribute which is her expression of the Modern Renaissance for the fashion archives for seasons to come.

Talking about her collection, Aarti said, “I take inspiration from the things around me that I love. I am passionate about both music and art which have been instrumental in shaping this collection.

Each piece in my collection has developed its individuality with its own distinctive traits. It was a natural progression of the combining power of the two to create something very unique and extraordinary that will essentially be timeless.”
