My graduate final collection is inspired by the captivating world of Bollywood historic movies and the grandeur of the Persian Empire. Drawing inspiration from the rich cultural tapestries of these two iconic influences, I have crafted a collection that pays homage to their timeless elegance and opulence. This collection explores Bollywood maximalism which refers to the extravagant and opulent style often seen in Indian cinema, particularly in Bollywood films in terms of fashion and visuals. I’ve looked upon larger-than-life aesthetics, vibrant colours, elaborate silhouettes, lavish costumes, and grandiose musical numbers. To further explore the fantasy, romance, drama, I looked back on the history of Indian subcontinent which include the Mughal era and their association with the Persians and Afghans who were the artisans of hand-crafted carpets. In the realm of Bollywood historic movies, we are transported to an era of majestic palaces, intricate embroidery, and vibrant colors that tell stories of love, valor, and tradition. Through my designs, I have captured the essence of Bollywood’s grandeur, infusing each piece with the drama and romance that define this cinematic genre. From flowing silks to ornate embellishments, every garment in this collection is a nod to the rich heritage of Indian cinema. In parallel, the Persian Empire stands as a beacon of refinement and sophistication, known for its exquisite craftsmanship, regal motifs, and luxurious fabrics. Inspired by the artistry of Persian architecture and textiles, my designs reflect the grandeur and splendor of a bygone era. Each ensemble evokes the spirit of royalty, with intricate patterns, rich textures, and a sense of timeless beauty that transcends borders. In addition to that, Faig Ahmed’s mesmerizing “Melting Carpet” artwork has sparked a whirlwind of inspiration for my upcoming fashion collection. The way he deconstructs and distorts traditional Azerbaijani rug patterns in a melting, fluid manner is truly groundbreaking. This innovative approach has ignited my creativity, urging me to explore unconventional textures and shapes in my designs. Drawing from Ahmed’s bold and thought-provoking aesthetic, I am excited to infuse my collection with a sense of fluidity and transformation, creating garments that blur the lines between tradition and modernity. Drawing inspiration from Ahmed’s bold and boundary-pushing approach, I am excited to bring a fresh perspective to my fashion pieces, creating a collection that celebrates the beauty of cultural reinvention and individual expression. While both Persian and Bollywood fashion have their own distinct identities, they share a common thread of celebrating cultural heritage and incorporating elements of tradition into contemporary styles which inspired this collection.
