Discussing the relevance of fashion from the perspective of its constant struggle between modernity, modernization and tradition, panelists from academic, artistic, design, styling and business backgrounds will be discussing critical questions to give us a new perspective on something that we interact with everyday.
Questions like ’what is the purpose of trends?’ and ‘how can fashion be defined in terms of design, function and quality?’ will expose how fashion is contextualized in the hopes of understanding its constantly changing behavior.
The panelists are:
Noorie Sadrangani: Founder of Obataimu
Leeza Mangaldas: Actress, model and founder of Evoke India, a platform for idea sharing and open dialogue supported by Columbia University, the US consulate and Lamborghini Mumbai.
Riaan George: Managing Editor of a brand new luxury magazine called Eat Stay Love. One of India’s premier male lifestyle bloggers and authorities on men’s style and grooming. Runs his popular blog UrbanEye.in
