Fashion Issue 2018


For our Fashion issue we took a bird’s eye view of a variety of pockets within the fashion industry and zoomed in on diverse disciplines that are part of the fraternity, however different from one another. We decided to focus on key people who have been instrumental in bringing about change.

For our title story we interacted with author, researcher and design developer Rta Kapur Chishti and learned more about her practice, Taanban, and her contribution to celebrating handspun-hand-woven textile. 

We also interacted with one of the most respected and inspirational designers, Sanjay Garg, whose dedication to making the sari here-and-now has not gone unnoticed. We feature Pooja Mor, the most popular Indian face on the international runway and campaigns. Blogger and photographer Manou has influenced many with his street photography and eye for presenting fashion in a simple and unassuming manner. And there’s Gunita Stobe and Mark Luburic from Anima Creative Management, a talent management company that has been instrumental in launching many careers in India and globally. 

Moving away from fashion we connected with Vivan Sundaram who shared his journey and took us through some of his works from his current retrospective at KNMA. Leonardo Pucci, all set to exhibit his first solo photographic exhibition, takes us through his two passions, fashion and photography. Assistant Curator of South Asian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Shanay Jhaveri gives us an in-depth insight into his love for the arts, his driving force and his artistic concerns. And Tishani Doshi talks poetry, stories and everything in between…
