Khadi India to bring eight designers to Dubai for 'Khadi Goes Global' initiative
The Khadi and Village Industries Commission’s handloom brand Khadi India will bring eight Indian designers to Dubai to showcase their innovative takes on Khadi textiles at ongoing event Expo2020.
As part of its work to promote Khadi textiles and products made from them on the international market, Khadi India will hold a ‘Sustainable Khadi Exposition’ at Dubai’s Expo2020, the Fashion Design Council of India announced on Facebook. The initiative is part of KVIC’s ‘Khadi Goes Global’ campaign which it is holding in partnership with the FDCI.
As part of the exhibition, designer Ujjawal Dubey will present a selection of androgynous silhouettes for men and women made to showcase the fluidity of Khadi textiles. Dubey’s brand, Antar-Agni, is known for its gender-fluid and natural aesthetic and mix of modern and traditional styles.
Designer Ashish Satyavrat Sahi will present looks by his brand Khadiwala including dresses in neutral tones to highlight the intricacies of the handloom textiles from which the garments are made. Charu Parashar will present a more colourful take on Khadi with womenswear featuring bold floral designs and vibrant hues.
Other designers who will take part in the showcase comprise Rina Dhaka, Shruti Sancheti, Swatti Kpoor, Sushant Abrol (Countrymade), and Rahul Singh.
Expo2020 launched in Dubai on October 1, 2021 after being postponed from 2020 due to the pandemic. The Indian Pavilion at the global fair is promoting a wide array of Indian businesses to international investors from heavy industries to tourism.
