Mr. Umang Hutheesing has been invited by Mr. Pierre Berge, to present вЂDeepak and Daksha HutheesingвЂ™s collection of royal Indian costumes worn between the period 1911 and 1947, in Paris. Mr. Berge is the one who helped found the legendary Yves Saint Laurent brand.
An event will be organized on February 9, this year, at the Yves Saint Laurent foundation, by the Pierre Berge-YSL Foundation in collaboration with Hutheesing Heritage Foundation.
Citing this invitation as a great honor for Ahmedabad and himself, Mr. Umang Hutheesing offered a concise view of the royal costumes worn during the period between 1911 and 1947. This period was eclectic and dramatic in opulence in terms of royal costumes, he noted.
He dubbed Mr. Berge as the cultural czar of Europe who has advised many French Presidents on cultural issues, and is the lifetime partner of the legendary French fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent.
Mr. Hutheesing further added that he will declare his plans regarding the forthcoming Ahmedabad Fashion Week (AFW), at the event in Paris.
