It’s easy to see why the Victoria Memorial in Kolkata has me enamored. The perfect marbled property surrounded by endless acres of greens. So on my trip to India I had to share its grandiosity with you. As West Bengal was where the British set up their Raj (rule) when they came to India, they built this monument in remembrance of Queen Victoria. It now serves as a beautiful museum and its interiors remind me of the New York Public Library.
I don’t think there is anything that can be said about the genius of Anamika Khanna that hasn’t already been said. For me, she is a designer who has brought modernity to indian silhouettes without compromising on traditional embroidery. Also, never in the past did I deconstruct pieces of indian outfits and wear them interchangeably. Her clothes have allowed me the freedom to wear indian silhouettes easily with western clothes. My favorite being her dhoti pants with a blazer and tank top. (I’ll have to do a blog post on this for you).
