Sanchita Ajjampur (Associate Member)

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
The brand captures the essence of the global traveler and the elegance of the collector on a quest for rare and natural beauty. Inspired by the “Modern Nomad”, the brand’s distinguishing factor, the design concepts blend eclectic visual language with natural vitality to create versatile, easy-to-wear and original clothing and accessories. Clothes are remixed and reordered to free the mind and body, the materials chosen for their textural sensuality, the decoration shaped into an eloquent narrative. Contrasts of avant-garde and folk interspersed with playful and free flowing elements give the collection a cosmopolitan feel, creating pieces of timeless expression with which the wearer forms an emotional bond.
