Mumbai: After two days of celebrations, it is the final day of a weekend-long grand launch of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre in Mumbai.
Nita Ambani on Sunday launched the ‘India in Fashion: The Impact of Indian Dress and Textiles on the Fashionable Imagination’ exhibition at the cultural centre.
The event saw the attendance of a number of fashion dignitaries from across the country. Nita Ambani also launched a book called India in Fashion, edited by coveted fashion journalist Hamish Bowels and published by Rizolli Books.
Isha Ambani, daughter of Nita and Mukesh Ambani, shared her insight at the event. She said, “When my mother and I along with Hamish were conceptualising this exhibition, we were clear in our vision that it had to encompass and showcase the wide-reaching influence of Indian fashion. It had to be an exhibition that touched upon the historical influence of India.”
