Pemmaraju’s luxury ready-to-wear collection will feature original artworks by indigenous Australian artists on garments using fabrics created by Indian artisans.
“It is a privilege to be working creatively with two ancient cultures and to be able to bring them together in a contemporary way for the modern woman,” said Pemmaraju.

Pemmaraju has collaborated with weavers from Varanasi, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Studio Calantha, a Bengaluru- based studio founded by her.
Indigenous Australian artists, including Warlukurlangu artists from Yuendumu, Rosie Napurrurla Tasman from Warlpiri culture and Reko Rennie, whose art incorporates his association to the Kamilaroi people, have worked on the collection.
Australian High Commissioner, Patrick Suckling, said fashion was at the forefront of the cultural connection between Australia and India, and had strong potential in the expanding trade and investment relationship.
“We are proud to present stylish and luxurious contemporary Australian fashion that exemplifies the quality artistry of two ancient artisan cultures, Indian weavers and Aboriginal artists,” Suckling said.
