I Was a Sari, which won the Circular Design Challenge 2019, will make its Lakme Fashion Week debut on August 22 at the St Regis in Mumbai. The brand will present a collection on the runway that, as its name suggests, is made entirely from pre-loved saris.
The collection features an array of bright, patterned textiles in all hues of the rainbow but what sets the brand apart is its silhouettes. The contrast of a tailored shirt or high-waisted trousers made in printed sari textiles creates a modern and eclectic mix of European smart-casual attire and Indian textile heritage.
Lakme Fashion Week will begin on August 21 and run until August 25. The Mumbai Fashion Week, which has been running for the last 20 years, counts Lakme, IMG Reliance, and Nexa as its main sponsors.
