Ritu Kumar’s prayer for 2021
The fashion designer prays for a healthy year that’s high on simplicity
First of all, my prayer is for a healthier 2021, with more freedom of movement and expression than we had last year. Another thing that I really hope happens in 2021 is that it becomes a year, which marks the start of normal activities again, minus any pandemics.
To do so, we must have simpler fashion trends in the next season, where with just an overlay or a new piece of clothing such as a scarf, you could make your wardrobe flexible. And it doesn’t really matter who you are, where you are, it is possible to be very much in trend and part of what’s going on in the next year. This is the positivity that I intend to bring to the table in 2021.
Lastly, I see a very secular India and I also see the very important role of every citizen of this country, especially the millennials, in the year ahead. The millennials are going to be the ones to handle the next phase of this country’s movement. They are young, they are positive, they are very well-read and they will make the future of this country bright.
