Phoenix Art Museum and Arizona Costume Institute hosted an exclusive opening of India: Fashion’s Muse on Feb. 28. Featuring more than 50 ensembles and an array of accessories and ephemera, the exhibition explores India’s influence on more than 200 years of Western fashion, along with works by contemporary Indian designers.
Guests enjoyed complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a sari-draping demonstration, live musical performances and an opportunity to discuss the exhibition with Helen Jean, the Museum’s interim Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design. The Museum and Arizona Costume Institute also welcomed local philanthropist Micheline Etkin, who was dressed couture by contemporary Indian designer Anamika Khanna.
