ASTAD DEBOO FOR JADE

JADE is born of the arts, its raison d’être is to make the artisanal relevant.

Our collaboration with Astad Deboo arose because of a simple meeting of minds Astad’s awe-inspiring art in many ways echoes this very ethos of Jade’s philosophy.


Astad Deboo opened the show for Monica & Karishma's LFW W/F show '14

His dance is meditative which aids the holistic expression of these structures and our resulting collection.

Astad enchants the audience with his surreal performance on the ramp for designers Monica & Karishma


Taking motivation from the classic arts and crafts of India, the creative forces, Monica and Karishma, believe in incorporating art within their process, to make the beautiful part of the mundane.

 This same belief has propelled them to seek creative collaborations with like-minded creators - the very first of which is with renowned Indian contemporary dancer Astad Deboo.

JADE’s presents a Summer of Style!


Athena | Colour Crush | Royal Strokes

This Summer 2014, JADE by Monica and Karishma are ready to celebrate a Summer of Style!  Three new lines are set to grace the fashion sphere, perfect for the fashionista!

Colour Crush 


Vibrant, vivid & vivacious! JADE by Monica & Karishma’s latest collection titled Vermillion. Inspired by the eternally intriguing Peacock, this line features a reinterpretation of this motif. Accented by unique tie-and-dye shading, so very intrinsic to India, the line features anarkalis, saris, and lehengas in hues of vermillion.

Highlights of this line include detailed silver and gold embroidery and Japanese bugle bead accents, along with intriguing silhouettes for the new-age Indian lady. The final look is that of unrestrained gaiety as vermillion, gold, and silver come together in what can truly be termed as a riot for the senses.

Athena


Inspired by the Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare, JADE by Monica & Karishma is proud to present our latest line Athena. Athena is a fierce warrior, marrying wit and grace with great panache and is truly an inspiration for the modern-day woman.

Classic silhouettes, albeit, with a stylized twist lay at the crux of this line- classic with a hint of drama. Expect romantic hues of pink, accessorized with intricate silver embroidery and embellished crystals. The line attempts to present a reinvented and refreshing take on an iconic muse for modern times.

Royal Strokes



Emblematic of royal days gone by, JADE by Monica & Karishma, present our classic take on the eternally graceful Rani-Haar. The traditional rani-haar is an elegant and awe-inspiring neckpiece that acquired a myth-like status. Jade presents a modernized Rani-Haar for the well-heeled woman!
Classic silhouettes with a hint of mystery, the line also features embellished necklines (mais naturellement!) accented with gold and silver Japanese bugle beads against a field of detailed print. Intriguing details such as sheer backs – great for chic events!

Head to our flagship store JADE,Peddar Road and indulge in a selection of Anarkalis, Saris & Lehengas!
