A MEDIUM OF SO­CIAL CHANGE

At the Lakme Fash­ion Week Sum­mer/ Re­sort 2017, Shades of In­dia tied up with LFW and Kranti—an NGO that em­pow­ers girls from Mum­bai’s red light ar­eas to be agents of so­cial change—for a show un­like any other. Young girls who are af­fil­i­ated with the NGO walked the ramp in Nagi’s ‘Bagh Col­lec­tion’ as they each told their sto­ries while demon­strat­ing their pride and in­de­pen­dence in the clothes.

The col­lec­tion evoked the warmth of spring, of early flow­ers in blos­som. White, or­chid tint, haze, al­mond, rose pink, were used with soft gold and sil­ver metal­lic while the sil­hou­ettes were in­spired by tra­di­tional kur­tas and pa­ja­mas and by rein­ter­pret­ing saris with a bo­hemian look. Nagi said of the show­case and her col­lec­tion, “I won't call my­self a fash­ion de­signer, my pas­sion for tex­tiles brings forth the style and con­fi­dence I wish to share and see in every woman. There­fore, I have al­ways pho­tographed them on women who may seem or­di­nary but are ab­so­lutely not. This as­so­ci­a­tion with Kranti at the most pres­ti­gious LFW has been the most en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”
