She adds that the show is targetted at the next generation of art collectors, who are open to new experiences, so as to offer them an avenue to appreciate and collect art. Reshma Jani adds that since fashion is also about aesthetics, they decided to amalgamate art with fashion. “We decided to combine upcoming artists with established artists so that our guests could be introduced to both kinds of artists. Seeing that Tanya’s collection had a young and sporty vibe to it, we decided to have her clothes be a part of this show as well,” she states.
Where: On: Today, 8.30 pm onwards at China House, Grand Hyatt, Kalina.
