QUEEN’S ROAD: The grand finale of Blenders Pride Bangalore Fashion Week 12th edition saw city designer Deepika Govind showcasing her design philosophy of ‘Fashion for the Earth.’

Inspired by natural elements, art, technology, and human craftsmanship, Deepika has been creating unique pieces of art, representing the contradictions that dwell in each of us.

A little known fact is that Deepika was the first to use aromatherapy on silks - a technique which so far had been limited to knits, but now with her R & D, the silks have got an eco-friendly treatment with aromas that include tea-tree oil, pine, lavender, rose and several fruity flavours. At the Fashion Week, Deepika’s collection was a homage to a glorious era of Karnataka’s history.
