The Victoria & Albert Museum in London harbors one of the most prestigious collections of international art and design and is also touted to be one of the greatest museums in the world.
The Abraham & Thakore piece will be part of a permanent collection that also consists of designs from grand couturiers through the years like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.
This acquisition recognizes the value, significance and the iconic nature of Abraham & Thakore’s design work and their integral role that they play amid the constantly evolving and fast moving trajectory of Indian fashion.
The piece collected was from the Autumn Winter 2010/11 collection that was based on the concept of a modern Indian fashion aesthetic. Through the collection Abraham & Thakore played with shape and proportion of traditional Indian clothing and handlooms with the juxtaposition of unexpected decoration, both in form and detail.
The specific look procured created a new silhouette. This look creates a power infused form, ready for work in a fashionable urban professional environment, which was another aim of the concept for the collection.
The Victoria & Albert museum even has a Nehru Gallery, an evocative architectural setting that contains, jewellery, textiles, furniture, arms and armor, metalwork and paintings of the Mughal and British periods (16th to 19th centuries) that are displayed, together with the arts of the Rajput kingdoms of the north and the Muslim Sultanates of the Deccan.
It is said the Museum's outstanding collections of South Asian art and design are the most comprehensive and important in the West.
