Most people think that it’s the first edition of something is the biggest achievement, and while that might certainly be true, the second one means a little more. It means that an idea had staying power. So, when we heard that The India Story was gearing up for it’s second coming, an announcement blog was kinda the obvious choice. For those of you who missed round 1 last year, TIS is a curated design exposition for products, that are of Indian origin and aesthetics, from the definitive names of our country to newer voices and artists from all aesthetic fields. This year the event is being held from the 20th to the 23rd of October, 2016.
TIS 2016 has much to look forward to! Let’s give you the many reasons to be part of The India Story 2016
Attendees will get a chance to walk through a TIS Platform space filled with art work and installations from today’s contemporary artists.
There will be a zone dedicated to the new and upcoming professionals in every field of design, fashion and art.
In addition to the new, this edition is also going to pay homage to craftsmen and artisans who practice dying arts in the country.
These awards will recognise talent and excellence in every field of design from every aspect of the business – conceptual thinkers, teachers, retailers, designers, manufacturers and so on. Notable names include Anavila Misra and Anamika Khanna among other industry stalwarts.
