If you know nothing else about Sonakshi Sinha, you should know this: the star is a feisty powerhouse who lives life strictly on her terms. Which makes her the perfect frontwoman for a very special fashion project with India's top designers. Elle asked designers from veterans Tarun Tahiliani, Abraham & Thakore and Namrata Joshipura to rebels like Gaurav Gupta and Arjun Saluja to come up with their riff on Dior's now-iconic slogan T-shirts from S/S '17.
While Tahiliani batted for gender equality, Joshipura focused on body positivity. Khandwala and Abraham & Thakore used their slogan tees to celebrate the power of the female, while Arjun Saluja drove home a simple message — women's rights are human rights — with one impactful phrase.
