As Prabal mentioned, his latest design were inspired by Sati. So, how many of you know what “Sati” is?
As per hindu religion, when someone dies, his/her dead body is burnt, freeing the soul to go to heaven. In ancient times, when husband used to die, his wife used to kill herself kill herself due to grief. Slowly, that turned into a ritual, where wifes were forced to jump in the with their husband’s dead body. Such ritual and the wife who kills herself, both were called “Sati”.
Still in Nepal, though this ritual is no more, when husband die, widows get rid of all the colors (esp Red, which symbolizes the holy color of ‘Sindur’, red holy powder used by women on their forehead) of their life and embrace complete White.
