About The Sari Project Showcase
Fashion, one of Eye on India’s most electric conversations, has taken shape into the Sari Project since 2014. The goal of the Sari Project is to interface with fashion students in Chicago, educate and expose them to a traditional garment widely worn all over India. Students take a traditional material and garment, and transform it into a modern piece of clothing. Some new changes are afoot for this year’s project as well! The students are to answer the question: “What does it mean when the traditional and contemporary intersect?” using the saris provided and we are looking to incorporate a film component to the project. The best Sari Project pieces were modeled at our annual Gala on June 9th and will be showcased from September 17 — 24 at Fulton Street Collective.
