Balmain Spring/Summer 2015 Ready to Wear | Paris Fashion Week

starting on september 25, hindus will observe ten days of ceremonies, rituals, fasts and feasts in honor of the supreme mother goddess, durga, and her defeat of the demon mahishasura. hinduism, it should be noted, is the only religion in the world which has emphasised to such an extent the motherhood of god.

the first nine days of festivities, known as navarātrī (literally meaning nine nights), see thousands of youth participate in the garba dance to honour durga. (garba is itself a word that derives from womb, or life, and the dance is meant to honor the fact that all humans have the divine energy within them.)

girls and women dress in the traditional  garga choli, a three piece dress comprised of a colourful blouse, a long, embroidered skirt, and a shall known as a dupatta. photos are by amit dave and sam panthaky from ahmedabad, in the northern indian state of gujarat, where the garba dance originated.


This heavily embroidered Regency era costume is a lovely example of a redingote - or quite literally “riding coat.”  The redingote came into fashion in the 18th century, starting out as merely a functional piece of clothing, but eventually evolved into a much more fashionable piece of a woman’s wardrobe.  To see an excellent diagram that illustrates how the silhouette of the redingote changed throughout the early eighteenth century to the late nineteenth century, go here.

This particular redingote was first seen in Vanity Fair in 1998 on Natasha Little as Becky Sharp.  It was used again on Georgia King as Lady Amelia Heartwright in the 2013 film Austenland.  It was seen a third time in 2013 on Jenna Louise Coleman as Lydia Bennet in the BBC mini series Death Comes to Pemberley.  It is here that we are truly able to see the great amount of detail and embroidery that has gone into this costume, not only on the front but on the back as well.
