Spotlight: Rajni Perera

23rd July 2013

Procrastinating (yep, surfing the internet instead of working) led me to the work of Rajni Perera. Her website bio reads…

“I am a Toronto-based artist whose work floats in the space between Western and Immigrant culture. Blending the visual languages of ethnography, archaeology, astronomy and the indexical sciences, the work becomes a record of impossible discoveries and mythical creations.”

and I’m a fan of her latest work the ‘Maharani’ prints series in which she adds a pop art spin to sepia portrait prints transforming her Maharanis into mythical creatures. See if you can spot a familiar face.

Karishma Shahani Khan: Katha S/s 13

27th June 2013

The thing with living in London and blogging about Asian Fashion is that I miss out on soooo many exciting events in India! The fashion weeks especially! and one show that I really would have liked to attend was Karishma Shahani Khan’s S/s 13 show. I’ve profiled her graduate collection- ‘Yatra’ and her A/w 12 collection ‘Chauraha‘ previously and her s/s 13 Katha collection is another must share. She is a master of print and colour and her latest Ramayana inspired hand drawn prints are just stunning. Her prints are combined with intricate surface embellishments and embroideries and breezy silhouettes. Enjoy her latest lookbook and collection detail pics…
