Time flies and how
It seems like it was October only yesterday
We opened the store on Dussehra 30 Th Sept.
The soft launch was on 3 rd sept - also the first billing date when we officially existed as a Designer store
The floor below the studio was suddenly available and the temptation was too much
All these years with the fashion industry and then the big blank
Felt like some talent was being wasted
A couple of phone calls and a leap of faith
Here we are 5 months and 14 designers later
Our next collection launches on the 27 Th Feb 2018 and it has been an interesting journey
The exhibition by Giriraj Kadia and Ginipi Art showcased the work of leading indian artists
The word swadeshi was used as all the art was made on handmade paper locally sourced.
Deviba wala displayed 2 portraits in Sepia tones.
The monochromatic style is what she is known for
What does one get labelled as ?
different name Tag's and genres within the visual arts often come to be associated with young artists
from the very beginning of the career and sometimes these labels limit us or hold us back. we often then are afraid of breaking the boundaries or of experimenting. experimental art is not serious enough is what some people will tell you. and once you have a Style stick to it is what others will tell you.
I had the opportunity to visit the biennale in 2015 and what an experience it was
Just came across some photos and thought it's a good idea to share here
Watch the space for the article
After a week in Paris where my husband was cycling for the PBP 1200 km and when he was sufficiently rested we took a flight to the Marco Polo airport in Italy
From there it's a short bus ride to the coast and then the Waterbus to San silvestro where our accommodation was an authentic Venetian home tucked away in he by lanes.
The city was abuzz with posters and advertisements for the various biennale events.
Armed with a local map of Venice and the flyer for the biennale sites we set out on the three day journey of exploring the arts :)
