ART MEETS FASHION
OKHAI x RIMI NAYAK INDIA
For 10 days Rimi Nayak travelled to a quaint beach city called Mithapur, nestled in the far western tip of Gujrat. As a design professional she collaborated with the brand called OKHAI which is a CSR project of the TATA Companies. Talking about the experience there, she said “it made me understand the real meaning of sustainable and ethical fashion.” Okhai is a brand which has been there for more than 2 decades starting with empowering only a few women to going upto a 1600 plus empowered women of the milk route.
“This has definitely been one of the most enriching experience of my professional career. I got an opportunity to work with these incredible Rabari Tribe women who are extremely dedicated, hardworking and always curious to learn more and try harder. The limitations with which they work around without any complaints was an eyeopener and gave me a totally different perspective in life, where dedication triumphs adversity and curiosity overrides limitations.” Rimi added.
