Denmark, 1991


My graduation collection is built around my parents. Their compounding language and culture. their visual identity, spiritual convictions and beliefs. Their nomadic life, their love for reusing and preserving materials and their ability to create with their own hands. I was inspired by them, their life recipe, their way of giving new value to old things and their ability to create a new sense of newness or rather their own sense of newness. Looks, silhouettes, colors, fabrics, shapes were all created from a mix of my parents existing wardrobe, family photos, memories of our annual trips to India, what people wore there, how fabrics were made etc. All the senses and sensibilities of the warm southern curry to the icy cold Himalaya.
