New Delhi: Even as Khadi is a traditional fabric and has been source of living for lakhs of artisans for centuries, it continues to occupy an important place in the wardrobes of people who wear it for comfort and elegance. Today it makes a Fashion Statement.
No wonder then the fabric of freedom and a symbol of Swadeshi, Sustainability and simplicity, made an emphatic presence in the global fashion arena with an exclusive presentation at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week 2022 in New Delhi.
Renowned Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut walked the ramp as the showstopper for Khadi India, flanked by a vivid collection of six internationally acclaimed designers – Mossi Traoré, Abhishek Gupta Benaras, Anaivila, Anju Modi, Charu Parashar and Rina Dhaka, a press release said.
This is for the first time that an international designer, Mossi Traoré from Paris, participated in a Khadi fashion show. Mossi stole the show with architectural silhouettes in his designs.
This is for the second time that Khadi has participated with Lakme Fashion Week; previously in the year 2018.
Khadi India show was curated by Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI).
