A unique amalgamation of art and fashion, exposing how society today is moved by both these aesthetic spheres; most intelligentsia influenced by prevalent fashion and exceptionally also aware of the intricacies of contemporary art.
Gallery Ragini plays a distinctive role in promoting creative spurts apart from conventional art forms Many might not agree intellectually on combining art with fashion, but aesthetics do play a large role in fashion which as much as art defines the maturity of a society.
At Gallery Ragini we are convinced that without a continuing creative vigor in the social life of India, we will remain a retrospective culture, harping on the artistic riches of the past alone. We fervently believe that without an ongoing creative present, life at base, will remain anemic. Thus they mean to infuse fresh blood and much daring in the imaginative life of this old-new city, and indeed eventually elsewhere in our country.
Alka Raghuvanshi, the multifaceted human being artist, curator and most importantly the thinker; Her love for Indian art and heritage, her whole Indianness is most enigmatic Each work of hers reflects her deep understanding of Indian aesthetics and colour. Her style is essentially contemporary and abstraction smooth and lyrical.
Her paintings have been transposed on to saris by designers Nidhi-Vaishali Jain. The designers are overtly inspired by the timeless drape and have always endeavoured to contemporize the sari making it more applicable for the urban Indian woman. As designers they feel that the sari should remain integral part of the Indian woman’s wardrobe. Their sari uncluttered graceful yet sensuous.
