On September 10, 2019 during New York Fashion Week, the CAAFD presented Vaishali S, a Mumbai-based luxury label founded by Vaishali Shadangule that transforms authentic Indian handlooms into wearable works of art. The 28 piece collection was rich and diverse with an array of subdued colors.
The Mumbai-based luxury label founded by Vaishali Shadangule was handpicked by CAAFD this season to showcase their SS20 Collection at the New York Fashion Week.
“Handwoven textiles are in our DNA. Since the inception of Vaishali S in March 2011, the brand has stayed committed to the weaver. The vision of Vaishali S is focused on making natural and handmade apparel by working with over 700 weavers across India, among which 80% are female weavers.”
