Q+A
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

For me, the design process is a personal and an intuitive one. I love history and the evolution of art and crafts. I love reinterpreting them with a modern perspective.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

For me, the design process is a personal and an intuitive one. I love history and the evolution of art and crafts. I love reinterpreting them with a modern perspective.

I think one has to be a social anthropologist first to be a designer. As quoted by Bandana Tewari "Fashion is like a fantastic hydra-headed monster that is influenced by everything around us - pop culture, the state of the economy, global warming. You name it." I identify with this and I love being part of that evolution. Design gives me an opportunity to present my outlook on everything.


WHAT HAS BEEN YOU BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

With modernization, most of the craft clusters in the sub-continent are dying as they can't find markets for their creations. We wanted to help create an eco - system that helps preserve and revitalize traditional textile and crafts skills by bringing elevated design and relevant products that fit urban sensibility. Maison de Malige is a small step towards creating a base for skilled, sustainable rural employment and preserving India's traditional handicrafts in the process. The journey has been as challenging one, but also is incredibly satisfying.


WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

Being a student of art history, I love the journey and evolution of people and places. Art and Fashion I think are visual history books that tell the story. As a New Yorker, I'm fortunate to have access to some of the world's best museums. But you will often find me working from Metropolitan Museum of Art, which I must say, is my happy place.


WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

Every piece we conceive has a story, a life of its own and hopefully, becomes an irreplaceable treasure imbued with a sense of individuality and meaning for the wearer. For me seeing the story unfold and live beyond my time here is humbling.

I want our pieces to be worn every day; to encourage women to wear their huge, glamorous cocktail rings to a party, but also to dress up their jeans
