Sabyasachi and Norma Kamali are amongst the designers pitching in their support at fashion for peace this month.
Pioneer fashion designers, Sabyasachi Mukherji, Norma Kamali, Mara Hoffman and Mimi Prober are all set to come together with Sadhguru and the Isha Foundation for Fashion for Peace. On the 13th of this month, the group presentation will play up conscious design while supporting artisans and designers through their work.

Sadhguru and the Isha foundation carefully picked more than 100 Indian textiles that have been woven in a steeped tradition for some 5,000 years. The centuries-old process is at risk due to the looming shadow of fast fashion and the artisans’ offspring opting for better sources of livelihood rather than carrying on the textile traditions. To draw attention and to create awareness about these techniques, each designer is creating four to six exclusive looks for the Spring Studios event.

People’s Revolution will produce the event with the help of students of the High School of Art and Design, where Norma Kamali is a board member. Having known People’s Revolution founder Kelly Cutrone for years, Kamali said she wanted to support the “meaningful” Fashion for Peace project. “This is a time when fabrics and products that have a connection to the Earth, natural colors are made of fibers that are simple and lovely have a special meaning. We appreciate them more,” Kamali said. “It’s also bringing energy and possibly some work to workers, who have the skill, or can be taught the skill to weave and dye, to work on beautiful materials that are just treasures.”
