19 January 2023

Istituto Marangoni Mumbai showcased the top three students’ work during H.H Maharaja of Jodhpur Cup at the exquisite RAAS Jodhpur. This first ever unique collaborative effort of Istituto Marangoni, Mumbai and Jodhpur Polo Associations was a beautiful amalgamation of history, heritage, luxury and appreciation of craftsmanship. Union of Italian heritage with a sport referred as 'The Sport of Kings', was a beautiful homage towards art.

The panellists included Monica Shah, Founder of JADE by Monica and Karishma, Ivan Oddos, Interior Designer & Architect, Mevin Murden, Director of Education, Manu Sharma, GM Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, Dhruv Pal Godara, Former Indian Polo Team Captain, Rachana Singh, Unit Leader Fashion Business.

The panel discussion tackled topics on  ‘Sustainability’, ‘Contemporary Design’, 'Timelessness', ‘Craftsmanship’, and in general the new trends that shape the consumer behaviour.

The event closed with a curated selection of JADE’s contemporary pieces demonstrating the rich Indian heritage of refined craft applied in a contemporary way.

Monica Shah,  Co-founder of JADE and Chanakya School of Craft said:

"Our artisanal legacy is what sets us apart from the world. And the only way to sustain it is through innovation - to bring these crafts into the mainstream, reimagine them in modern, current forms and make them relevant generation after generation."

In attendance was the best of Jodhpur with  Her Highness, Rani Uttara Singh Rathore (Royal family, wife of Maharaj Suryaveer Singh Rathore), Her Highness Jahnavi Kumari Mevar (Royal family, Hukam Raj Legacy, founder Oli Ruh) and former Indian Polo Team Captain Polo Dhruv Pal Godara. 

Speaking about the event, the Director of Education, Istituto Marangoni, Mumbai, Mr. Mevin Murden, said:

“We were deeply honoured to be invited to be part of the Jodhpur Polo season and offered the opportunity to showcase the wonderful work of our students to a prestigious audience alongside JADE. We are also very thankful to the amazing panellists for such and passionate and intellectual discussion.”

Ankur Mishra, Member, Organising Committee of Jodhpur Polo Association said:

"It was great to have Istituto Marangoni in 23rd Jodhpur Polo Season. Polo & Fashion are a match made in heaven. And the association of two stalwarts in their respective fields - Jodhpur Polo and Istituto Marangoni - is undoubtedly perfect! I was amazed by the passion and knowledge of the panelists; they were upbeat, thorough and had a wealth of knowledge in their respective fields. A well-chosen topic and speakers, kudos to the entire team of Istituto Marangoni. We at Jodhpur Polo look forward to a longer association and many such exciting events, together."
