Happy Father’s Day

Our fathers’ stories are retold,

Through threads of love and crafts of old.

Happy Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a special occasion that gives us the opportunity to honor the guiding light of our family—the father, who lead with love, wisdom, and strength.  Team Tale of a Trend expresses sincere gratitude to all the fathers in a unique and stylish manner.

This Father’s Day, we are celebrating the fathers who raised us and the crafts that continue to inspire and sustain the nation. As our biological father is the foundation to our personal identity , similarly our ancestral crafts are the bedrocks of our national identity. Hence this shoot was hosted at National Crafts Museum and Hastkala Academy to highlight the synergy between our cultural heritage and personal histories.

Let’s take a fashionable flight from Dad’s closet to National Crafts Museum and Hastkala Academy, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.

Ever thought of reimagining and restyling your father’s formal shirts into fashionable ensembles? How about  capturing all these shots against the culturally rich backdrop of  Indian handicrafts?? Lock in for the journey ahead!
