Back for its seventh season, Royal Fables is all set for a two-day cultural fiesta that showcases arts, crafts, fashion, and jewellery that once belonged to our kings and queens.
Grandmother of all showcases
While we can’t keep track of what we did or wore yesterday, there are thankfully some who have been thoughtful enough to preserve the precious art, jewellery, and creations from those days of yore. At Royal Fables this year, watch out for 50 royal families who will showcase their collections of rather rare and antique costumes, and jewellery pieces that once belonged to their grandfathers and grandmothers, or great-grandmothers, or great-great grandmothers…you get the drift.
The old and the new
The exhibition will feature a heritage installation, called Vintage Revisited, which will be created in collaboration with globally-acclaimed chandelier restorers, Mathieu Lustrieire & Regis, and couture embroidery master Jean Francois-Lesage, who will try to recreate the French influence on the Indian palaces of the Raj era.
And after you’ve checked out all the old and rare pieces as well as the installation, there’s an array of newer designs you must not miss. 10 designers, artists and craft patrons, who have worked at palace art schools across India, will showcase heritage pieces that they have reproduced to fit into a more contemporary setting. Art enthusiasts and collectors, mark your calendars! This season of Royal Fables may just be its best yet.
When: 26th & 27th September, 11am – 7pm
Where: Oval Room at the Mansion, Bhikaji Cama Place, Hyatt Regency
