Dandelion, a unique exhibition where art, craft, design & fashion come together is a labour of love for the mother and daughter duo of Mukta Nandini Jain and Garima Jain. who are well known in the elite, cultural circles of Delhi.
Dandelion is a boutique, carefully curated exhibition hosted under the aegis of Sasvata, an organization founded by Mukta Nandini Jain, which aims at working for women and child development and focuses on the need for women to be economically empowered. Mukta Nandini Jain, with more than 3 decades of pursuing an interest and active participation in different genres of craft, art, design & textiles, says, ” Dandelion, is more than just a curated lifestyle exhibition.. It is an expression of the philosophy behind design. we chose the name because like women the Dandelion flower is hardy and delicate at the same time. It is also reflective of the kind of creations we offer at the exhibition.”
Dandelion is to be held periodically through the year. The current exhibition held at Ambassador Hotel, New Delhi at a well laid out space celebrated a leisurely lifestyle through beautifully crafted artefacts, handwoven, handprinted and hand-embroidered textiles.

What ensued was a beautiful curation of like-minded creative heads who have something distinct to offer to the patrons. Since the exhibitors are fresh talent their products have a new and unique sensibility at extremely competitive price, making the exhibition a delight for those who have the sensibility to appreciate the finer things in life.
