October 17, 2020

Fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has made uniforms for a girls’ school in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. The students of Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls School were dressed in Sabyasachi uniforms, as per an Instagram post by the designer. The dress included a blue knee-length dress with a round neck, three-quarter sleeves paired with maroon cropped elastic waist pants.

“Ajrakh uniforms by Sabyasachi for the Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls School, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. What particularly catches one’s attention is the ajrakh work on the uniform, around the skirt and the sleeves. Ajrakh is a unique form of block printing, famous in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Ajrakh products are usually made with natural vegetable and mineral dyes. Indigo is a key dye.” –  stated the designer in his official Instagram account.

This school has been set up as part of an initiative by CITTA, a non-profit organisation founded by American artist Michael Daube. The schools, which has been designed by New York-based architect Diana Kellogg aims to educate underprivileged girls as well as form a base for women’s skill-building and provide access to independent and meaningful work, as mentioned on its official website.
