ULSOOR: Ambara is showcasing unique sarees from The Song Boutique, an initiative of designer Sangeeta Sen who graduated from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad in 1991. Her love for handlooms and handicrafts was sparked off while she was in college. After her graduation, she worked for a short spell at Anokhi and then at Fabindia. She developed block prints, applique, weaves, dhurries, upholstery material, home furnishings and much more for buyers around the world and the Indian market while at Fabindia.
In 2007, she launched her line of children’s clothes, Pappu and in 2014, launched her first line of sarees that were ideated like contemporary classics, but not necessarily bound by tradition. Says she, “the saree is my canvas and I want almost every piece to be exclusive. The current collection is made of crepe silk, Mysore silk, Chanderi, Kerala cottons and Tussar silk.”
Sangeeta also advises many crafts organisations, helping artisans to develop and hone their traditional and non-traditional skills through design and marketing inputs.
