Pavithra was invited by the Gandhi family to recreate some of the sarees from Indira Gandhi’s personal collection for the Centenary Year celebrations. Her collection of sarees included pieces from all across the country and Pavithra had just a few hours to spend with the sarees before heading back to recreate them from memory. Here are some memories from the show that was
organised at Bikaner House, New Delhi in Nov 2017.
In Nov 2019, we celebrated Vimor’s 45-year journey of conserving handloom inheritance. This 5-day event at the Bangalore International Centre, was woven through a saree exhibition, a series of interactive sessions with handloom experts, curated walks through the exhibits, workshops (for both children & adults) and each day was concluded with a program including a fashion show choreographed by Prasad Bidapa.
Pavithra was invited to showcase Vimor at the #QatarIndia2019 Year of
Culture event. Held at the Museum of Islamic Art, the event had a breathtaking display of sustainable Indian textiles and handlooms. Vimor also set up a loom with our nationally recognized weaver, Mr Bhanumurthy.
Pavithra fulfilled her long cherished dream when the Vimor Foundation
inaugurated ‘The Vimor Museum of Living Textiles’, a space to preserve and showcase unique textile designs and heirlooms owned by people across India and the personal collection of Vimor. Here are a few snapshots of the evenful launch day.
The Rajasthan Heritage Week in collaboration with the Rajasthan
Government is an attempt to give a renewed look to Rajasthan’s traditional crafts. Vimor worked with traditional weavers and artisans who had never worked with sarees before, to create Gomat Sarees which were put on show at the Fashion Show.
Vimor regularly participates in exhibitions and pop-ups across India and the globe. Here are snapshots from our exhibitions in 2019.
Covid-19 put a dampener on exhibitions in 2020, but that didn’t stop Vimor from participating in a few virtual pop-ups and exhibitions.
