Taking upcycling to the next level, Auroville-based designer Uma Prajapati has gone zero waste this time. Showcasing her recent line, Upcycle, at her design studio, Upasana (Auroville) and Janaki Store (Pondicherry), she says, “Creating the line was like composing a painting, where we carefully segregated the right coloured fabric. The composition is unique.” The anti-fit collection transforms bits of leftover fabrics into dresses, tunic tops and scarves, and is available in three colours—blue, black and white. Commenting on the future of sustainable fashion, Prajapati says, “Fashion is not there yet. But a lot of young people are looking at such options and, with such concern, I am sure the future will be about sustainable fashion.” Rs 1,900 onwards. Details: 0413 2622939
