Sharon Crawford | Art of the Trench

Growing up in Pakistan and attending a little boarding school hidden in the foothills of the Himalayas, I started off a far cry from the world of fashion and design though I loved sketching, painting, and shopping for fabric at the night bazaars. With the lights ablaze on all the sparkling bangles, I would sit enchanted as roll after roll of embroidered chiffons, silks, and cottons would be unfurled in front of us to choose fabrics for new salwar kameezes. 

When I was about 12, a family friend asked me if there was anything she could bring back from a visit to the UK and for some reason I asked for a fashion magazine. She brought me back a copy of Vogue and although she had ripped out all the pages with nudity, it was the most intriguing thing I had ever seen.”

“I bought my first trench coat only last year in November. Have worn it about 5 times since I got it. The only thing that makes me happy about it is that it’s XXL so it’s quite comfy.

I bought the trench primarily for Delhi winters. I think it would feel pretty ridiculous to wear a trench in Bombay. Could wear it during the rains but I’m not sure if mine is waterproof. I do have a raincoat that could be trench-y.

I’m more of a sweater girl, really.”
-Nidhi Jacob. Deputy Fashion Editor, Marie Claire.

I also made a series of short films with Nidhi in October. These are screen shots from one of the films.

Indu. Karan’s Grandmother.

“I found this photo in a shoe box when I was looking for some pictures to be framed on my family wall. It was a beige trench & the photo is about 60 years old.

My grandmother got married at 20 and she got this coat made sometime then. The fabric was for 150Rs. and the stitching cost her about 40Rs. She would wear it with her saris and suits. When she’d wear this out in Bombay, people would call her Rani of Punjab…because, at that time, no one else would wear a trench. People considered it as something royal and international.

The photo was taken in Sonipat, Haryana.

“I have 2 trench coats. A trench coat for me is like a shield. It’s an interesting piece of garment which not only protects but also is a style statement. It carries the identity of the wearer.”

I photographed Karan in October for Burberry’s Art of the Trench project. Rest of the photos(about 50) are up on the AoTT site (takes a while to load; click on “view latest”). Photos were only meant to go online but now they’re part of an exhibition.

Below is a short video of Christopher Bailey talking about the project and my involvement with it.
