At the heart of ROUBA.G's Love is Okay collection blossoms an emblem of resilience, the "Love is Okay" dress—a garment that weaves together the delicate threads of healing and the robust spirit of love. It's a piece that doesn't just drape over the body but wraps around the soul, embodying a journey of restoration akin to the Kintsugi-inspired artistry that American artist Glen Martin Taylor breathes life into.
Craftsmanship That Speaks Volumes
Each "Love is Okay" dress is a narrative of patience and precision, taking 45 to 60 days to create from handwoven Noil silk, sourced responsibly, embodying ROUBA.G's dedication to sustainability and ethical fashion. The silk, with its luxurious softness and exemplary quality, is meticulously woven in India, ensuring that every inch of the fabric narrates a story of craftsmanship and care.
Design Intertwined with Heritage
The dress is a canvas showcasing handwork and embellishment techniques passed down from our ancestors. The stitches that bind the wide Noil cuts are not just threads; they are the vertical and horizontal lines of tradition and modernity entwined, a technique rekindled from the memories of our designer’s grandmother and echoed in Glen's work.
A Silhouette of Symbolism
This sleeveless midi dress is not merely a garment but a symbol. Its V-neckline and the graceful mulberry silk connection speak of the elegance within strength. The texture, created by the detailed stitching, is reminiscent of the mended fissures of a once-broken heart—each line a story of mending, each gap a space for growth.
The Message Behind the Seams
"Love is Okay" is more than a dress; it’s a manifesto. It stands as a sartorial testament to the beauty of love’s endurance and the human spirit’s infinite capacity to heal.
