OBJECT, in print

A sneak peak into our fashion features and stories found on the JoB

Fashion and development—these two words often imply a transformation from one season to another. At Object we take this one step further and look at the impact of rapid industrialisation on attire; the impact each new t-shirt has on the environment; what natural disasters do to the political economy in a crafts belt and the impact of fashion imagery. Our writers and interviewees deliver what we promise: fashion for the bookish.

Images from first to last: The cover of Issue I; A shoot in a colonial mansion in Bombay, under the stands at Wankhede.
