‘VASANT UTSAV. Celebration of spring’
"A celebration is a public performance that marks an important event in the life of a person or a group", (Smithsonian Institution, 1982:p.61). It is an event where something peculiar or particular can be remembered and practiced every year. According to Turner (1981), during celebrations people think and feel more deeply than in everyday life. They express the meanings and values of their societies in special, often vivid ways. Among these is the creation of beautiful or striking objects, which exist only because humankind celebrates its own existence. My collection is a representation of these rituals and habits, in particular the fashions and colours worn and how these affect the clothes and garments worn from day to day. I come from and Indian family where much importance was given to festivals and their celebrations. The one season as well as festival which fascinated me was spring with all textured and coloured outfits worn during the celebrations. To further comprehend the scope of the concept and to continue the visualization into textures, designs, silhouettes and shapes I took this fascination and decided that I would expand it to cover the celebration of spring and see what different outfits were worn by different countries during their spring festivals that included: Spring Break, Holi, Easter, Gangaur, Gangasar mela, Pongal, Pujillay, Nowruz and Pagan.
