Not everybody is courageous enough to dream, and believe that every dream is valid. And when one actually validates a dream, one breaks through.
In today’s Tuesday Tale, we at Red Polka are totally digging the creations of Absynthe Designs, by Abhishek Basak.
Five years ago, Abhishek Basak, an alumnus of National Institute of Fashion and Technology (NIFT), Hyderabad, took his passion for tinkering with tools and recycling machine parts a step ahead when he fashioned a neckpiece using parts from old, non-functional watches that belonged to his parents. It started a couple of years back as a stress-busting hobby from his love for watches and beautiful hand-crafted machines. Old mechanical watches and other machines blended precision engineering and expressive art to showcase human creativity at its best.
Today, Basak continues to work with old machine parts, particularly those of watches, and thus enjoys the distinction of being an ambassador for Steampunk Fashion in the country. Essentially a style advocating the use of machine parts to create a setting that is a throwback to the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, Steampunk Fashion has always had a niche audience. He didn’t go looking for steampunk; it found him. Now, these beautiful and edgy vintage accessories are raved, for their vivacious nature.
