Fashion For Peace at New York Fashion Week 2019 is a collaboration between Isha Foundation and renowned leading-edge designers to promote conscious and sustainable fashion. This special event highlights Sadhguru’s initiative: promote natural textiles, revitalize the traditional crafts that are on the verge of extinction, and raise awareness about the impact of the fashion industry on health and the environment.
The exclusive looks created by each designer showcase handmade natural textiles, woven as they have been for thousands of years. Fashion For Peace celebrates the convergence of consciousness, creativity, community and commerce.
Each fabric selected for this event has been carefully curated for its uniqueness of weave, low carbon footprint and environmental sustainability. Sourced from master craftspeople and small farmers across the weaving traditions of India, these exquisite textiles reveal the remarkable depth of talent of the traditional weavers whose numbers are declining every year and whose craft is becoming rare and endangered.
