Indian Fashion Designer Vaishali Shadhangule, the brain behind fashion brand Vaishali S has been chosen to showcase her upcoming collection at the prestigious Paris Haute Couture Week. Interestingly she is the first Indian women who will be showcasing at this esteemed fashion event. She is also the second Indian designer, second next to Rahul Mishra to be on this event.
“Vaishali S has been chosen as this year “Invited Member” of the Paris Haute Couture Week.
It is a dream come true, I think the dream of any designer that is in love with her mission. I am. I have always dedicated my work to revive the treasures of India hand weaving tradition, through the India ancestral way of life, which today has become mainstream: Sustainable (socially, environmentally, economically), Circular, focused on intricate hand work. It is a tough moment for India, with a lot of people suffering and fearing, and bad news making the headlines around the world. I hope this achievement at this time will somehow help us see what we are capable, the world see what India is also capable of making the headlines for. I hope this will help the whole ecosystem of hand weavers clusters, skilled karigars, young talented designer that strive to get a spot on the India stage. Believe in your dream, put passion and hard work in it, be the dream you want to see. A special thanks to all my hand weavers, karigars and to my team, for having supported and still working hard to help me make this dream come true even in such a difficult scenario. Sorry for this 10 minutes of self celebration but I am really really really happy. And now back to work, to prepare a collection that the world will remember. Love to everybody” said the post.
