Sonam Kapoor’s coronation dress has a unique history that you need to know about

Sonam Kapoor‘s recent appearance at King Charles III’s coronation concert in a white printed gown received mixed reactions on social media. While some criticized it for looking like a bedsheet, a fashion blogger explained the ‘unique history’ of the chintz print fabric used in the dress. The blogger schooled those who questioned the significance of the outfit, pointing out that the chintz print originated in India and was once highly prized worldwide. The fabric helped revolutionize fashion and design globally and was used for garments when maids were given old or damaged household textiles. Sonam’s gown, co-designed by Anamika Khanna and Emilia Wickstead, took inspiration from 17th and 18th-century calico prints that were commonly traded between India and the UK. The actor thanked the blogger for ‘getting the whole point’ of her look. This full circle moment shows how a fabric that became dispossessed from the natives is being reclaimed and recontextualized today.
