In his new collection MARK BAIGENT acknowledges the immense efforts and important role of yet another woman in history that had to dwell in the shadow of her patriarch superiors and creates a homage to this powerful goddess and patron of the arts.
We come in different shapes and sizes and we express who we are in different ways. This collection is made for people who express who they are and put aside rules and expectations. It is for those who dig deep and reflect on who they are. We ask the question because we want to grow.
We always get told by others in a verbal or passive-aggressive way that we are not enough and that we fail. But to fail in what? To fail in doing them or the world justice? This collection is dedicated to the person who broke out from the boundaries of tradition and expectation.
The first non-seasonal collection by designer and artist MARK BAIGENT is the return to the core of the designer personal style and original expression of creating fashion. Ethnic influences were always a part of his creative language and are now again implemented into the collection.
KAHAANI is the Hindi word for "Story". MARK BAIGEN's new collection tells the story of an event that happened in the designer's life. Every piece is named after a different character in stories and fables of the Hindu mythology and is the designer's vision of how these characters would look in our day.
This collection is about a life period of designer and artist MARK BAIGENT where he was forced to reinvent and look at his art from a new perspective. Exposing this personal and intimate situation and bringing it on to blank canvas - tearing, reinventing, evolving and draining emotions was the start of his solo collections.
