Mogachea means ‘beloved’ in Konkani and for Tania Fadte, Mogachea is her interpretation of love for hand-dyed, natural textiles and contemporary silhouettes. You will find her garments, stylishly casual, suave yet comfortable and fashionable to the very core. All the garments have been made out of pure cotton and brightly dyed in the right shades of indigo and manjishtha.
Every piece that walked the ramp looked so stylishly breathable that you could almost feel how comfort was at the very core of this collection. Be it the flowy robes or the asymmetrical kurtas and tunics combined with pants in varied styles like dhoti pants and culottes.
Her latest collection Journey of a humble dot that was showcased at the Amazon India fashion Week Spring/Summer ’17 was inspired by her two-year- old daughter’s recent obsession with polka dots. The garments take a new take on the style, while still oozing out the old world charm of polkas.
“Right from GOT Certified Organic Cotton to Hand-dyed fabrics in natural indigo and Manjistha, everything is natural and this makes every piece in the collection good for your body. It’s biodegradable, simple and harmonized with nature, employing age-old techniques of hand loom weaving and hand block printing using the natural dying processes throughout the collection,” says the designer herself.
“My two year old daughter’s recent obsession has been stippling and her love for polka dots made me do everything dotted. I clearly took my inspiration from her latest fascination and thus this collection which is based on simples dots, simple lines and very simple designs,” explains Tania.
The collection is entirely in cotton lending it the elegance that the fabric commands and is beautifully crafted. The designs are pan Asian taking hints from Japanese kimonos, Indian Angrakhas and Chinese Yat-sen suits.
In shades of blue, red and white with plays of dots and stripes, the Journey of a humble dot is sure to cover miles.
