The first half of the runway show featured 40 modern-style garments which mixed traditional Indian aesthetics and craft techniques with the designers’ own eclectic inspirations, showing the diverse potential of Khadi, the Press Trust of India reported. The second half of the showcase featured 25 garments made from pure Khadi to highlight the textile and celebrate national pride. 

“The show brings together both sustainability and fashion, to showcase how fashion can be sustainable using the traditional craft of khadi-made fabric,” said Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswami in his address at the event, Indian Express reported. “Khadi is not just the fabric of the story of India’s independence, it’s also the fabric of sustainability. It uses hand-made techniques, organic cotton, organic dyes and is a very special bond between the earth and human beings. It is creative, it is sustainable, it is green, and it is everything that we are looking for in a more sustainable planet.”
