During the British rule, India, from being just a supplier, became an exporter of textile materials. The popularity of Indian textiles slowly started influencing western Fashion, giving rise to new trends globally. Artisans in India have been practicing this craft for centuries to preserve the Khadi tradition.
To promote traditional weaves and provide a Global stage to these extraordinary artisans, AbhiniSohan, Executive Director of Indywood Fashion Premier League, has come with her Khadi and Linen Clothing line. Her magnificent collection was showcased in association with Indywood Billionaires Club Dubai Meet and Indywood Business Excellence Awards 2021. The event was scheduled for 7th October at Dusit Thani Dubai.
During this occasion, AbhiniSohan stated, “Khadi is a hand spun which has a century long history behind it. Though we have entered the era of automation and advanced technology, hand spun garments have a personal touch to it. Even today, artisans in the remote corners of the country still continue to practice this art to keep the weaving tradition alive. Thus, it becomes our responsibility that we give them the stage they deserve. This show is just a beginning towards that goal.”
Niya Roy was the show stopper of the segment. She is a sound healer, Hypnotherapist, and Yoga Instructor at the illuminations wellbeing center. With an inborn talent to immediately connect with people, her passion for psychology, fitness, and wellbeing ignited her love for the world of therapeutic modalities.
