Patchwork has been extensively experimented on, by designers from all over the world, to produce exquisite bags, wall-hangings, cushion covers, skirts, waistcoats, jackets, even saris and kurtis.
One such name of a designer, who has worked expansively with patchwork in Bangladesh and incorporated it effortlessly into eastern fashion wear, is Chondona R Dewan; her works are exquisite and uncompromisingly magnificent.
Dewan often combines embroidery with patchwork. She includes the jerry-rigged designs into the bottom of the saris, where as the base is kept neutral coloured, on which the patchworks add a vibrant, comfy and trendy look.
“I love patchwork; it converts any boring, unswerving design into a delicate work of art. Say, if you wore a plain sleeveless kameez with dupatta, there would be no ‘joie-de-vivre’. But if you took the same kameez and topped it with a long patchwork jacket, it would immediate transform your look into a masterpiece. It’s that easy”, said the expert designer.
