VOGUE India July 2019

The June issue of Vogue is one of many firsts - starting with our cover. On our first-ever illustrated cover, internationally acclaimed artist Takashi Murakami gives us his interpretation of a world coming together to fight this unprecedented crisis. In other highlights, this is also our first no-production issue, where our fashion story was shot remotely, with contributions coming from across the world. In shops, we feature a collection of all things that make us cheerful, and pieces you can borrow from your partner's closet. Beauty highlights the health and wellness heroes to emerge from the lockdown. Plus a round table, conducted on Zoom, sees fashion designers discussing the future of the business.
