The Fabric of India

Posted by Porte Mode on


In an ode to the continuing tradition of innovative India textiles, the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A), London is exploring the history of the Indian textile industry. Tracing the origins of the intricate weaves to today's contemporary fashion, the exhibit is a breathtaking tribute to Indian fabrics and fashion. The exhibit includes contemporary designs by a number of Indian designers, including Porte Mode's very own Rimzim Dadu and Rahul Mishra. Rimzim's Leather Applique Patola Skirt and Rahul's Merino Wool Collection were prominently featured at the museum amongst several other shining starts of the Indian fashion industry.

The reinvention of Indian textiles through the prism of contemporary fashion is a boon for the artisans. The age old techniques of weaving have been cultivated and nurtured from one generation of Indian artisans to another and exhibits like these contribute to their success and continued survival. In the age of machine made everything, hand crafted workmanship needs to be encouraged, highlighted, and appreciated. We are proud of our designers for pushing the fashion envelope and re-inventing the fabric of India.

‘The Fabric of India’, supported by Good Earth India, with thanks to Experion and Nirav Modi, is on at the V&A, London from October 3, 2015 – January 10, 2016.
