Rina Dhaka fears for daily wage workers as business shuts down

Published

Womenswear designer Rina Dhaka has felt the strain of the government’s decision to shut down ‘non-essential’ businesses and worried for day-wage workers in the fashion industry.

“With retail closed and fashion not being a life enduring priority, the strain is immense,” Dhaka told Sputnik News. “Most orders stand cancelled, we have to support our existing fixed costs of teams with limited capital in hand.”
 
“As this is a cycle and any brakes to the cash flow on a daily basis will threaten the trade and the tradesman…there is a large number of daily wage workers who join the production and delivery processes, I wonder what will happen to them,” said Dhaka. 

Dhaka is known for working with craftspeople from around India to create her bohemian designs. By working with rural communities Dhaka has contributed to their economic growth. However, she highlights the need to protect these workers during the lockdown. 
 
Earlier in the month on March 6, Dhaka joined other Indian designers including Ritu Beri, Rohit Bal, and Neera Nath, among others, to collaborate with the Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (TRIFED). The organisation launched its latest campaign 'Go Tribal' which, harnessing the power of its partner designers, aims to enthuse every Indian household to own at least one tribal-made item. 
 
Dhaka has showcased collections on the runway in India and internationally and her eponymous brand is stocked in the U.S., UK, and other countries.
