Let's Talk: Khadi + My Favorite Designer

By Pragyasharma57 @pragyasharma57
Happy Independence to all!!
Different people celebrate this day in different manner: Some put the tricolor paint on their cheeks, some wear clothes in a special color coded scheme, some by watching news channel all day along, while others by just sitting at home enjoying a holiday!
So in case you are from the 4th category, my post is all yours!
The only link I could find between fashion and Independence day was Khadi. And what better day to talk about this versatile fabric. Its the only one that keeps you warm in winters and cool in summers. Plus it infuses a great sense of respect for our own country.

You know why Gandhiji preferred Khadi over any other fabric? Because Khadi is hand woven made bit by bit with the help of Charkha as compared to machine made fabrics. So, he believed that khadi was a symbol of self reliance. One makes one's own cloth and wears it.
Over the years, many Indian designers like Ritu Beri, Rohit Bal, Raghavendra Rathore, Sabyasachi, Rahul Misra have worked with this fabric and have shown their creations on the ramp as part of the celebrations for the Independence Day.

Pero by Aneeth Arora is a label inclined mainly towards the hand woven fabrics and Indian weaves. Each collection of Aneeth's speak volumes about the essence of India and so no doubt she is one of my favorite designers. From her collections.
