Abyss represents the exciting journey of self-discovery that we all go through during our lives, which can perfectly be synthesized by a dive into the darkness of the ocean. In an unbroken extension of Vaishali’s signature style, the textures and the new blends of shimmering materials that ‘Abyss’ is designed with will transport you on this journey of discovery via the depths of the sea and your very soul.
Vaishali’s ‘Abyss’ collection for Paris Haute Couture Week 2023 is made with carefully chosen threads and yarns from various villages in India. The yarns were then woven into the finest metallic silk which was used to make the whole collection. The silhouettes are flowy yet constructed to form unconventional silhouettes as per the designer's artistic interpretation of the Abyss, making it a form of wearable art in handwoven Indian textiles.
The collection includes a mix of gowns and various artistic drapes using our signature textures and handwoven fabrics. When we go into the depths of the Abyss, darkness surrounds us but as we start going up we start experiencing more beauty and colours around us until we finally reach the light. Similarly, the collection starts with the colour black depicting the deepest depths of the Abyss going into colours like purple, pink, green and yellow and finally going into white which is a depiction of when we are out of the depths of the Abyss and into the light.
