The unveiling of the shawls took place at The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, in the presence of prominent industry professionals and celebrities from all walks of life. The grand fashion show that followed highlighted the shawl as an insignia of modernity and style and as a garment that can be draped differently each time.
Tata CLiQ Luxury and The Woolmark Company associated with 10 of India’s leading designers – Manish Arora, Rahul Mishra, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Abraham & Thakore, Aneeth Arora, Amit Aggarwal, Pankaj & Nidhi, Nachiket Barve, Raghavendra Rathore and Zubair Kirmani. Each of the designers created one unique shawl, using a minimum of 80 per cent Merino wool, that speaks of their individuality, creativity and signature aesthetics.
Vikas Purohit, Chief Operating Officer, Tata CLiQ, said “India is a land of rich and varied heritage; and as one moves across its geography, one appreciates the art and culture different regions have to offer. It is, therefore, important for us to give these exquisite arts and crafts the appreciation they deserve. With The Shawl Project, we are launching our Indi Luxe section and giving our consumers access to exclusive Indian luxury brands online through Tata CLiQ Luxury. All 10 designers have woven invaluable pieces of art with Merino wool and we are sure that our discerning consumers will cherish it. This project is very dear to the brand, as it allows us to create awareness about traditional crafts and culture amongst our discerning consumers.”
“The farm to fashion journey of Merino wool beautifully highlights how it can be transformed into culturally influenced and luxe fashion pieces here in India,” added The Woolmark Company Country Manager India, Arti Gudal. “A true representation of art meeting culture in fashion, the project has pushed designers to rediscover Merino wool and India’s heritage. They have also mirrored key qualities of wool in their designs and paid homage to India’s culture. This association will strengthen our effort to empower and promote both the wool and the handloom industry in India through local retail and weave together two cultures.”
