Fashion Designer Jenjum Gadi is famously known as the King of Gota, but for his Spring Summer 2014 ready to wear line, at Fashion Design Council of India's Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, he presented a devastatingly stunning collection of insect prints that literally made jaws drop !! ..... Of course insect prints are nothing new ..... the Victorians made the shiny beetle into fashion art ..... Cicadas, dragon flies and other insects were very popular during the Art Nouveau period .... In 1997, Thierry Mugler was inspired by insects for his seminal haute couture presentation "Insect Woman" .... in recent times, Lanvin, Thakoon, Tory Burch have also been bitten by the bug print ..... but to see Jenjum's collection "Insecta" Spring Summer 2014 on the runway was an exercise in straining the extraocular muscles ..... eye poppingly !! ( in case you didn't know the EOMs or extraocular muscles are the fellas that cradle your eye ball and are the fastest reacting muscles in your body :P) ..... The first question the fashion press asked Jenjum in his post show conference was predictably ... "Why insects" .... i just smiled at one corner .... because just a few days back during the fittings session for fashion week, i espied the now famous dragon fly ensembles and was most curious about his inspirations .... For his Autumn Winter 2013 collection, Jen's inspiration was his hill tribe ancestors through the storytelling of his grandmother, and therefore named "Clan" ..... and now this time his inspiration was most obviously nature .... and therein lay a clue .... The designer was channeling his roots .... the beautiful land of orchids .... Arunachal Pradesh .... one of the 18 biosphere reserves of India ... a land of unparalleled biodiversity rich in species both flora and fauna ..... Now for some people the idea of insects is very creepy ..... but they are without doubt a very intrinsic part of the terrestrial eco system .... often reviled but very needed to maintain the balance in nature .... and Jenjum pays the most beautiful sartorial homage to the most diverse groups of animals on the planet, including more than a million described species and representing more than half of all known living organisms ..... the arthropods Insecta :)

The Collection :


"There is beauty in ugliness. All of nature is beautiful. I have taken inspiration from Insects. I see God in small things too. My label recreates the magnificence of nature and all creatures big and small into extraordinary designs that is inspired by my Northeast heritage" - Jenjum Gadi

The Superstars : Oversized red ants, beetles, mosquitoes, bees, wasps, fleas, cicadas, gnats, dragon flies, bees and flowers.
The Technique : Armies of small screen prints of insects in patterns, embroidered 3D applique flowers
The Colours : Mostly Black and White, red and blue.
Fabric : Organza, satin, chiffon for a flowing silhouette
Love : The column dresses,  Kimono saree, the shift dresses with wings, the 3D flower collection, the James Mangte minaudieres, the sandal creepers, everything really !!


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well."
