Royal Fables, a heritage exposition that presents the rich, cultural imprint of Imperial India presented their debut show in Mumbai at the Palladium Hotel on 7th November 2014. The first ever Royal Fables show in Mumbai gave the city an unmatched opportunity to view the creations from the workshops of the Royal Families from India. This unique exposition showcased a rich repertoire of craft and fashion created by the royals themselves,
A unique platform founded by Anshu Khanna, a communications professional who has a great penchant for promoting good design, Royal Fables is her little attempt to preserve and recreate the aura of the bygone, regal era. Royal Fables attempts to infuse a contemporary idiom in the art, design, and crafts of these regal patrons to make it meaningful in the modern context. “Royal Fables today has become like the annual festival that some of our most celebrated royals await and participate in with full gusto. It is their platform and my attempt to salute the creative outpourings of the scions of the erstwhile princely families, who in the hustle-bustle of life have not forgotten their vital role as craft patrons,” says Khanna.
