today Feb 14, 2019
On February 13, Sabyasachi Mukherjee travelled to New York to showcase a capsule collection in support of Sadhguru and the Isha Foundation’s Fashion for Peace project.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee joined fellow designers Norma Kamali and Mimi Prober to design a capsule collection that was shown at the Fashion For Peace charity event in New York. The three designers each created a four to six look collection for the event at Spring Studios in New York.
Mukherjee’s collection shone a light on conscious design and aimed to help support the artisans who worked on it. Mukherjee’s collection featured a simple strap dresse that, on closer inspection, featured intricate patchworks of lavish saree textiles. The collection mixed modern New York aesthetics with the designer’s signature eclectic Indian style and included wearable separates.
Kamali also gathered over 100 Indian textiles for the event, each one woven following an Indian tradition. Kamali simply draped the sarees to best show off their designs and aimed to use the display to promote their endangered art. The artists’ collections also highlighted the beauty of traditional Indian weaves.
The event, produced by People’s Revolution, included students from the High School of Art and Design, where Kamali is a board member. The school educates a group of talented students and trains them to become artists. The event saw the fashion and spiritual worlds collide with Sadhguru and his foundation working alongside the three established designers.
