Women's Week Special: Fashion
In a week-long celebration of women in creative fields, today we bring to you our curated list of three ladies who are changing the game in the world of fashion.
Years ago, a label that started in a room in Aneeth's house is one of the hot sellers in the Indian fashion industry today. What makes it successful is not only the anti-fit, frumpy chic garments, but the age-old crafts of India that each of the pieces reflect. Every garment is born as the materials pass through the hands of one craftsperson to the next. It is in this Indian-ness of her work that we find a woman who inspires us to never forget our roots.
With her very first collection, Ruchika stunned the fashion world, and she hasn't stopped since. A pioneer of androgynous fashion, she creates garments that not only speak to a woman's body, but also her mind. With a design philosophy that stems from the idea that less is more, her unstoppable spirit to reinvent her ideas and her work every season is what makes her a woman to watch.
Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama:
Like the maestros of Japanese fashion, P.E.L.L.A draws its inspiration from the Wabi-sabi philosophy of creating aesthetics through deliberate imperfections. A young gun in the fashion space, Priyanka launched P.E.L.L.A last year, as an expression to inspiration that's rooted at an emotional level. An experimental innovator with a fresh voice, she reminds us that you're never too young to reach for your dreams.
