Weave In at Story of India event celebrates handloom in Ahmedabad
The artisan and handicrafts support network Story of India put on Weave In, a curated selection of sustainable handloom fashion labels, at Prahladnagar Garden in Ahmedabad.
Weave In was a fashion exhibition and shopping event that presented six up-and-coming sustainable fashion labels: Galang Gabaan, Little Khadi, Advaita, Cross A Line, Priti Prashant, and Sagaa by Vanita. The event welcomed shoppers on March 12 to browse the labels and learn about their stories as well as about Indian handicrafts as a whole.
One of the brands featured, Galang Gabaan, showcased its clothing made from Odisha weaves. The brand, which means “with love” in the regional language of Santhali, brought along a selection of linen sarees, loose dresses, and casual separates featuring whimsical details like cut-out flowers.
Little Khadi traveled over from New Delhi for the exhibition and presented its selection of Khadi children’s wear. The brand’s clothing takes its cues from traditional wear shapes but keeps them simple and fuss-free for children.
NIFT graduate Priti Prashant presented a collection of brightly coloured sarees and dresses and the other brands showed a similar selection of handcrafted clothing. The event saw Ahmedabad celebrate handcrafted fashion as well as this crop of fresh labels.
