For Renaissance Project, Vogue India collected exquisite hand-woven and hand-embroidered fabrics from artisans across the country and gifted them to some of the biggest international labels, and invited them to design a unique creation. A tribute to the Indian textiles, the Renaissance project comprised 21 pieces – Burberry’s iconic trench coat made in Maheshwari silk, Tod’s D bag made of Kanchipuram silk, Gucci’s gown in Gujarati patola, Hermès iconic scarf in Kantha work to name a few.
The Black Sari was a special project in which Vogue asked 50 designers to take a simple length of black cloth and remake it in the modern woman’s aesthetic-the sari! Eminent designers such as JJ Valaya, Manish Arora, Manish Malhotra, Rohit Bal, Sabyasachi created their own contemporary interpretation of the classic six yards which has been captured as a photo feature.
