    Love the Anuradha sarees. Major respect for showcasing Indian ‘weaves’ in such modern styles; Jason Anshu’s work is interesting.

    Everything about this post is really, really cool. I love that HHC:
    (i) Featured designers working so beautifully with Indian textiles. And not just a photo gallery, but a proper explanation of each designer’s work. It’s actually inspired me to go pick up some clothes from these designers, and slowly switch away from the mass-produced stuff.
    (ii) Featured another fashion writer! Such a great way to collaborate. Thanks, 3P: Pallavi, Priyanka, and Payal. Happy to be reading all of you!

      For handloom every single piece is unique, no two garments are identical. That’s how a weaver weaves. That’s what makes it unique and rich.

    @Sy: Exactly! I’m trying to switch from mass produced fashion to more ethical and sustainable brands too, so this post is very helpful. If only I could figure out where to buy Aagor online!

    Love love love!!
    This is amazing on so many levels!
    We need more support and cheer for ALL of the traditional Indian weaves.. they need to become mainstream.

      Amen to that. Wish everybody thinks like that.

    I have never seen HHC giving a detailed commentary of designers work before. Kudos to you all! Good job. Along with the beautiful photographs, the descriptions made an interesting read. You all seem so very responsible. I am a fan of handloom and more so Assamese handloom. Thia is awesome.

      Yeah these are worthy posts by P&P. But the content is written by Pallavi D in her blog, as seen on the tagging. Also can you help me identify where is Thia?

    The write up is really good.

    and Anuradha Sarees are so elegant and not at all OTT.
    They are the kind of saree I would love to buy.

    Respects to the Weavers! Enjoyed the writing.

    Some of the designs are rather sloppy! A ‘Jhola’ is the perfect accessory for these looks.

    Can’t be hard to make a sharp looking outfit with these gorgeous materials.

    All respect to the super talented weavers!!!! I’m from Benares and such posts fills me with joy!! I’m so happy that finally people are recognizing the beauty of Indian weaves and the hard work behind it. I live in the US and when I see a piece of nothing sold for so many $$$ , I wonder what these artists are worth of.
    Its my request to everyone to join hands and buy and wear as much handloom as we can. They are really gorgeous work of art, they mark civilization and are unique. Der aaye par durust hi aaye!! Amen!

    I’ve been reading your blog for years, and never enjoyed the fashion week coverage, as you guys have always posted dozens of pictures with no context. Also, most of the Indian designers are so OTT and Kew copying each other that I don’t care. I’ve a huge fan of hand looms, particularly Assamese hand looms as I’ve met some great Assamese people in life ? Anyhow, really enjoyed this post and the way you described each deisgner’s idea. This kind of coverage is much needed for the handloom sector so that people buy them and also understand why they cost more than mass produced stuff.

    While some of the clothes and styles are attractive, the writing is pretentious. It’s like reading some pompous description of wines that you see in menus.

    Thanks for this post P&P!
    I had sent you guys an email about sustainable fashion (over a year ago I think) and was wondering if you saw it and what you thought of it.

    LOVE the idea of the post — and some of the garments, especially Anuradha, PELLA and Padmaja — but I seriously thought I was reading the designers’ handouts. Much prefer the original P+P’s flippant takes to this pretentious it’s-handloom-so-its-holy tone. (and I LOVE handloom :P)
