Head Full of Dreams
Any living soul is obliged to own the liberty of spreading happiness, infinite happiness. In
India, we custom the festival Holi just to persuade the act of extending joy. Hand full of colors are strewn at each other to strip off the evil for the revelation of divine happiness hidden within and thereby forgiving one another with just the existence of love. One form of art which holds this as a cause is doodling. Doodle art originated as a Black and white portrait with miniature detailing which later allowed people to color the portrait the way they wish in infinite possible way, making them the creator! The same relates to happiness.
Our collection ‘Head full of dreams’, is about transforming a dream to a reality of spreadinghappiness among people like diffusing color smoke into air.
The collection ‘Head full of dreams’ is an enigma that could be fathomed in a countless aspectby the viewing individual. This collection is provoked from a divine mind Kamal Raj Manickath anticipating an inevitable world full of colors.

The collection holds 4 lehengas and 8 evening gowns presented in fabrics like lace, tulle, lasercutfabrics, chiffon and georgette with a palette purely obtained from the festival Holi. Thecollection is a specimen of colorful doodle art with fractal detailing in a wide color combo.
