Quirk Up the Magic of Nine Yards with Queen of Hearts!

Attributes: Clothing, Saree

I remember my first few years in college, being young and eccentric I shared a deep love for dresses, especially dressing up. Opportunities like Fresher’s and Fests were grabbed at their first light and my wingmen and I draped our mother’s sarees. Back in those days, sarees were looked down upon for not being trendy and being ‘un-synced’ from the fashion sense of the youth. I wished for quirky trends in sarees for so long and finally my search ended when I came across Queen of Hearts, a Bombay based Contemporary Indian textile label.

Deepa Mehta has always loved textiles, she grew up admiring Indian handlooms and handmade crafts, her mother and sisters used to choose designs, textures, colours, laces and embroideries for their sarees and Deepa thus inculcated a deep love towards fine detailing in design and an exquisite taste in clothes. What is special about Queen of hearts (QOH) you may ask? Well, Deepa treats every inch of the draping cloth like a canvas of possibilities, she creates Sarees that have never been seen or made before. She imprints elements of our day to day lives upon traditional handlooms like Chanderi, Tussar, and raw Cotton, Kanjeevaram, Khadi, Maheshwari and more. Her canvas in the form of sarees endows block prints and various other motifs of birds, bulls, cat, cycle, a deck of cards, ice-candy, leaves, mosaics and other innovative and intriguing design forms.

Queen of hearts is cofounded by Deepa and Jesal Mehta, the lovely duo who both make for the creative and administrative force behind the clothing label. Do not shy away from wearing the person you are. Our sense of dressing up defines our individuality and garners free spirit. QoH is all about the love for good fabrics, sensational motifs, extravagant colours and exquisite quality. You better get one of these revolutionary draperies from the display racks and into your cupboard.
