Behind Closed Doors
“Face and embrace that chaos instead of hiding from it.”
This philosophy is very personal to me as it speaks about my emotional journey. I read somewhere: “the wind extinguishes a candle but energises fire”. So I decided to be like that fire instead and be anti-fragile. I chose to embrace the turmoil and manoeuvre it to my advantage. It is only then, that one achieves growth and perspective. And that leads to a true metamorphosis. This collection is an ode to that very faith to remind us that hope exists, compassion exists, solidarity exists, camaraderie exists and above all love exists. It is a reflection of our time during the pandemic and how we survived and continue to emerge from it.
Made with sustainable organic textiles developed from fibres of rose petals, orange, lotus and organic cotton, this collection is a true testament to the importance of saving the planet by finding sustainable alternatives in fashion. The details and silhouettes of this collection is an amalgamation of our urge to travel and the time spent at home. We invite you behind our doors to experience this journey with us.
The Self At London Fashion Week
‘The Self’ embodies a reconceptualization of gender- less clothing, aspiring to refashion a world that breaks down the boundaries of gender and illuminat- ing the very uidity of it.
It speaks about self-con- dence inspite of all aws and quirks. It is about nding perfection in the imperfections; about em- bracing one’s uniqueness and weirdness because that is what sets you apart from the rest.
A Little Chaos At Los Angeles Fashion Week
This collection is an ode to our minds, the stages of turmoil we went through as individuals and as a community. Humans have realized many important things during these trying times. All of us went through stages of many emotions. This slow-ness of the world during the pandemic gave us the time to stop, think and re-think our existence. Especially about how we are destroying our planet and nature by over-using and over-extracting the benefits it provides us with. These realizations would lead humans to move towards a better world ; a more sustainable world. This gives rise to a hope for a better tomorrow. The pop of color on a black palette in our collection is symbolic of that same hope. It portrays the strength and support that will help us, as a community, to survive together and move towards a better and more soulful life. The strength to overcome “A Little Chaos”
The collection finds inspiration in the representation of the Hindu deity Shiva’s form of ‘Ardhanarishvara’ which is a synthesis of the masculine and feminine energies of the universe in one body.
Non-Dualism, also called non-duality, means “not two” or “one undivided without a second”. The binary genders are not opposites but reciprocals.
Dichotomy or the lack of it and oxymorons have always been a core concept for Two Point Two’s expression
The desire to compartmentalize gender, setting the males and females separately across two sections of a valley that cannot be allowed to meet is what Two Point Two as a brand challenges.
It aims to create an “agender” identity i.e a third identity, which has characters from maybe both the binaries or maybe neither. Androphilia and gynephilia are terms used in behavioral science to describe sexual orientations, as an alternative to the binaries. Combining these two together defines appropriately our theme of not giving importance to the gender separation.
