Payal Khandwala: Designer Spotlight

Full Outfit: Payal Khandwala 

If you have been following my blog for a while and my facebook page and my twitter, you've heard me harp about designer-artist Payal Khandwala's work. Well I finally got to meet her in person today while she was visiting NYC on a short trip from India. The great thing about meeting creative people who's aesthetic you genuinely like is that you feel at ease around them that probably comes from just knowing that they are your kinda people. Based purely on their design aesthetic, you feel comfortable and connected with them. We spent a lovely morning sipping on organic juices and talking about everything under the sun but shop. And I got to meet her lovely family and adorable little daughter Meera. 

If you don't know her work yet, you can get an sample of it from these pictures. Yes, she is wearing her own designs. Check out her latest collection here. And this is a post of me wearing one of her designs from a couple of months ago. If you did like to buy any of her designs you can just email her or me and we can make it happen for you.
