Wanderlust by rohit chawla
A single, piercing eye behind a cloak of black, a tall lean herder in dusty white, the unspoken intensity of silent faces, resilience etched deep in lines on their foreheads. They walk proud, silver and kohl flashing, amidst camels and sheep in the desert. This pastoral nomadic community of Rabaris has withstood the onslaught of time yet retained its identity, its innate sense of style intact. Their fashion, a spontaneous self expression of natural flamboyance, and a sense of continued unity of their community. The traditional textiles, intricate embroidery and motifs, tattoos and the glistening silver they adorn have inspired countless couture collections, on myriad catwalks across the world. We pay tribute and share the
relentless spirit and style of this remarkable wandering community.
