Sabyasachi Mukherjee designs uniforms for Jaiselmer school

12 April 2021: Fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjeee recently collaborated with CITTA organization to create uniforms for the students of Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls school in Jaisalmer.

He also designed special blue-maroon Ajrakh uniforms for girls of Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls school of Jaisalmer. Mukerjee used Ajrakh textilem, natural dyes and the block printing technique. The outfit has three-fourth sleeves with buttons and pockets on both sides. The elastic at the waist provides comfort with beauty.

This school has been set up as part of an initiative by CITTA, a non-profit organisation founded by American artist Michael Daube. Designed by New York-based architect Diana Kellogg, the school aims to not only educate underprivileged girls but also form a base for women’s skill-building and provide access to independent and meaningful work, as mentioned on its official website.

Daube was highly moved when he came across ajrakh, deemed one of the most complex craft techniques worldwide. “And what made it truly compelling to me socially is that this textile is still being practised by both Hindu and Muslim craftsmen, mostly from the Khatri community,” Daube was quoted as saying by Vogue.
