Recently, the Indian Fashion Week took the whole “who made my clothes” notion to another level. Designers took a novel approach by showcasing the artisans who create the clothes at various workstations on the ramp. It was great to read Vikas Pandey’s (at the BBC) coverage of this great story: Artisans on the ramp at India Fashion Week. Visitors to the fashion show not only had a chance to see the artisans in action, but they had they were able to touch and feel the fabric too.
We hope to see and hear more of these kinds of initiatives from the fashion industry in the years to come, and we hope this inspires you to showcase your artisans and producers in creative ways!
