Luxumi Sridharan has done to the yellow duster what housewives should’ve done long ago: She’s ripped it to shreds, then turned it into something approaching couture. Project Runway wishes it thought of this.
Sridharan is one of more than a dozen London designers tasked with reinventing the drab old duster — symbol of domestic drudgery everywhere — for an exhibit on Everyday Delights at the London Design Festival Sept. 23 to Sept. 26. The show was organized by the arts commissioning group JJAM Curators Collective.
Some highlights below:
