Whirlwind romance of dreams, poems and riddles; rewriting the story My Paheli collection was inspired by my love of folklore, from the way each piece has its own story to tell, from how that piece is created to who is wearing it. Deep routed in its tradition, the art of story telling has always captivated me and this collection of jewels is thus inspired by it. In a time before mass communication women in the village would gather together and sing songs and act out scenes, often depicting wedding scenes. I took influence from the art of kalamkari, from how their folklore was embedded into the fabric and taken from village to village to dramatise and tell ancient stories.
