Among a series of events lined up between Thursday and Sunday to mark Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at throne, a unique sari created with sustainable recycled plastics as a group project by Arts University Bournemouth students is displayed on four-meter-high puppets.
The sari reflect a special Bollywood-themed Wedding Party ensemble at the Platinum Jubilee Pageant finale on Sunday curated by UK’s South Asian performance company Nutkhut.
According to Nutkhut Co-Artistic Director Simmy Gupta, “To re-imagine the sari, a timeless garment, for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant is both an honour and a joy, the sari designed by renowned Irish fashion designer Paul Costelloe and created as a group project by Arts University Bournemouth student.”
“With four days of celebrations and millions around the world taking part, this weekend will be a fitting tribute and celebration of her service and dedication to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth,” said UK Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries.
