Reshma Jani of Gallerie Angel Arts says, “This show was a natural progression from our last show, which was Art&Music Unplugged. Both Art and Fashion are creative, inspirational and to do with aesthetics. We wanted then to merge and create an experience of harmony between the two, so the show was conceptualised.”
Anushka Rajan says "For me, Art and Fashion do at some level go hand in hand, I see art as the creation and fashion the expression. Merging these two passions of mine was something that got me really excited for this collaboration! Usually art showings don't really attract the youth of today. That's why we thought of adding the element of pop fashion with some vibrant canvases and edgy young sculptures. I chose artwork which I feel would interest the GenNext's of today! Being an art enthusiast from a very young age, promoting these phenomenal upcoming artists give me immense joy."
