About the Design:
The artist behind this design enjoys the representative qualities of the colours here, symbolising sky and peace in the bold uses of blue and white respectively. Sparkle adds class to the design; one which she hopes will inspire women to embrace life and equality.
About the Designer:
Alka Yadav is a young artist based near Delhi, working in the fashion design industry. She is a great advocate of the creative talent involved in design and the role of young women in particular. Her passion for challenging the gender roles which she sees every day are probably best reflected in her own words: “If I get the chance to be a part of this festival maybe I can tell everyone that females are not only born to do household work; they are not born to live according to a male. It’s their journey – let them handle it.”
