Rouka by Sreejith Jeevan

This year’s Onam designs are special for Sreejith, for they are an ode to his grandmother. He says,

“This collection stems from the memory of my grandmother’s garden, which was filled with local flowers. In the evenings, she would string the jasmine flowers for her hair. As a child, I would admire her green thumb- to be able to get a plant cutting and convert it into a beautifully flowering plant.

Later in life, working with textiles, I would compare the process to how she would grow her garden. It was about finding local skill, nurturing it, and patiently waiting for it to bloom with ideas and prayer. 

Thy Garden Come, inspired by the popular phrase ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a tribute to the spirit of growing the local – in reverence to the Kingdom of Mahabali where righteousness and prosperity ruled. To me, this defines the celebration that is Onam.”

And very true to this theme, we did see some amazing flora on the attires.

If you appreciate minimalistic designs, you’ll adore this clothing collection. The garments are sophisticated and understated yet still manage to inspire awe.
