This month, the ROM will be presenting a fashion exhibit called “The Cloth That Changed The World: India’s Painted And Printed Cottons” for the first time in 50 years. The exhibit opens on September 12.
The collection of Indian chintz will be on display for everyone to enjoy.
It explores India’s gorgeous textiles and prints from long, long ago, all the way to what artisans are creating today.
Dr. Sarah Fee, who is the exhibition’s lead curator and the ROM’s Senior Curator, Global Fashion & Textiles said in a press release, “India has given the world many extraordinary fashions, but none so influential as its painted and printed cottons, known as Indian chintz. These beautifully coloured and patterned textiles shaped global human history, art and industry in ways that continue to influence us today.”
Adventure through designs that paved the way for fashion today and absorb the culture and stories that make up these artistic geniuses.
