Sourcing Sustainably from India hosted by Shared Talent
Shared Talent India is an exciting cross cultural collaboration using directional design as a tool to promote the best in Indian sustainable textiles.
Come and hear from designers who took part in the project (Samant Chauhan, Gaurav Gupta (AKAARO), Anjana Janardhan and Shazia Saleem) share their experience of sourcing from India, this unique collaborative project and their vision of sustainability within the fashion industry.
Shared Talent India is a DEFRA and Indian government funded project being run by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion has brought together emerging design talent from the UK and India along with selected students from Amsterdam Fashion Institute, London College of Fashion and Pearl Academy of Fashion. In July 2009 the designers and students came together in New Delhi to take part in collaborative design and prototype development, using a variety of sustainable textiles, sourced from all over India. Selected outcomes are being showcased on the Monsoon Stand at Estethica at London Fashion Week in September 2009 and then Indian Fashion Week in October 2009. The panel discussion will be chaired by Jen Marsden – Home and Lifestyle Editor for the Green Guide.
