Approximately four years ago I was introduced to a practice called Nichiren Buddhism, wherein all the members pray for world peace. This practice works on the law of cause and effect –i.e. what you give, you get and what you sow, you reap! It included a lot of self-reflection and expressed that the only change one has to make, is to change you. Even though these changes were all very positive, it was difficult especially when I had to go out of my comfort zone.
My first thought when I started designing clothes was swimwear – it’s been a lifelong vision to create a swimwear line. I believe that has to do with spending a lot of time in Goa. Since the age of two I have been religiously going to Goa every year with my family, which then of course stopped being a family holiday when my rebellious teens kicked in and it became more of a party getaway. Goa fashion is almost stringently restricted to resort and swimwear and, of course, hippie attire. The awesome part is that you get to see outfits and people from all over the globe. I was fortunate enough to actually launch my first swimwear collection last year! Roomauction.com gets to showcase the first image of the collection!
South Goa, here I come! I have just spent a chaotic weekend partying in the north, so heading to the south on a Monday morning was serious bliss for me. My cab ride took around an hour and a half and my driver Ranjeet kept me quite entertained most of the way, with his life stories.
