I love India! Its the very basis of all the creative work that i do… yet, I also love multiculturalism and so I forever delve into other cultures and pick elements from them and then infuse them with elements from India to create an all new experience. My current collection, THE RANAS OF KACHCHH is a medley of influences from the Ranas of Nepal and the Nomads of Kachchh (Kutch) in Gujarat, India. Thought I’d post some images of a recent couture shoot that we did in Jaisalmer, at the fabulous Suryagarh Hotel. I’ve written about Jaisalmer and the Suryagarh in earlier posts (so please do go back to them to learn more about both), but these images, which i thoroughly enjoyed making demanded to be shared. The clothes and the location both celebrate my core ethos, that of the Royal Nomad.
Blessed to be born in India… I never have to worry about running out of inspiration… ever!
