  • ishi vest represents at the Eye on India festival

    This weekend, ishi vest was very proud to take part in the Eye on India Chicago festival, a series of events centered on cuisine, dance, fashion, film, literature, music, theater, visual arts, and business discussions. 

    The weekend started with a bang at the Opening Gala, which included a select preview of programming.  Our ishi vest representatives, Penny and Diana, enjoyed watching musicians, artists, dancers, and fashion students showcase their talents.


    Throughout the festival, ishi vest hosted a booth where folks could try on vests & pocket-scarves.  We also loved spreading the word about ishi vest's rad approach to fair trade & sustainable ecofashion.


    On Sunday, our friend Penny shared our ecofashion story with other entrepreneurs during the "Where Did You Get That Vest?" presentation at the Eye on Innovation conference.  This conference celebrated the work of innovative South Asian entrepreneurs in the Chicago-land area.

    To top things off, we ran into award-winning filmmaker, Prashant Bhargava, who showed us how to look super studly while rockin' an ishi vest.  You can check out his award-winning feature here.


    ishi vest would like to thank Eye on India Chicago for hosting such a great event and for inviting us to participate. 

    We would also like to send a bunch of good vibes to all of our ishi-ista volunteers for making this Eye on India festival a complete success.  Y'all are truly the <3 of ishi vest.
