Sonya Batla’s Aatish is inspired by Kashmir and Kashmiri craft traditions and the famous Kashmiri embroidery Kasida. Varied, rich colours, elaborate in detail and exquisite in execution, the Kasida patterns are freely drawn by the naqqash mostly from memory. Kashmiri embroidery is very intricate and has taken much time to get the finished look. Almost all outfits have taken approximately one year to embroider. The delicacy of the Kashmiri craft mix rich and earthy tones and the colours of fire with rich reds to bright red oranges will set the mood for the presentation.
