“I’m very uncomfortable with clothes. Something happens to me when I start wearing clothes,” said Salman, who is known for his wit, during a fashion show at IIM Ahmedabad on Friday night.
“Come to my house someday and you will see it for yourselves. Its not me only but my father too. We prefer to remain with minimum clothing, for instance pant with baniyan (vest), shirt or sometimes bare chested.”
In sync with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to make khadi fashionable again, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) , a non profit organisation, presented the second edition of its unique initiative to display the capabilities of the humble fabric – “Huts to High Street”- at Louis Kahn Plaza of the IIM on Friday night.
The special showcasing was in association with the Gujarat State Khadi & Village Industries Board (GSKVIB).
India’s leading and young designers came together to present their innovative modern twists to hand spun and woven embroideries and Rohit Bal, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Pero by Aneeth Arora and 11.11 /Eleven Eleven were among those who showcased collections soaked in crafts and Indian heritage.
