New work featuring five inspiring women and their thoughts. “I am not a perfect example of "good consumption" because I am still consuming too much according to me but whenever I buy something I question myself about the origin of the product, the condition of production and if I really need it or not. My style has been more or less the same since I was 20, I know exactly what suits me and I am really careful when I buy clothes to buy something that I will still be able to wear in 5 or 10 years.” — @charl_india "I saw this achievable wardrobe project called Project 333 and decided to adopt that for 3 months. In short it asks you to assemble a 33 piece wardrobe including footwear but not including lounge, workout, sleep and underwear, which you will use for 3 months. You box up all your other stuff and keep it away. When the time is up, you bring back all the old stuff and go through the closet for the next 3 months only buying what you really need and understanding what you haven't really needed.“ — @jd1685 “My slow living journey started when I was 24 years old, my sister, Jane had introduced me to Bea Johnson, who lives a zero waste lifestyle. Even prior, I have always tried to do my part in a few ways I knew, but after coming across the zero waste lifestyle I was inspired to do more. It’s amazing how small adjustments in our lives can make so much of a difference to our state of mind as well as the planet.” — @littlechocolatebox | @littlehappypotamus “As I tried to feel at home again in a new country, I realised what would help me the most was not trying to fill the void with things but rather by creating new experiences. I started dirty hands therapy also known as gardening. I tried to spend more time outdoors in nature. These connections helped me build this new sense of self and it slowed me down a lot. I learnt to value the importance of tiny steps leading to big magic.” — @edlyngd “Start by learning. And definitely do not stop trying. Progress isn't always an upward trend, there are ups and downs, the point is to try. That's enough I feel, if nothing else just try.” — @mallaikamat Photography | Styling — @rhea.gupte Client — @ikkiviofficial
The culture of getting work done for less or for free is toxic. This is not in reference to creative collaborations which benefit everybody involved in the project and no party has any monetary interests. This is in reference to projects which are clearly for commercial purposes for at least one party. If you are in a position to hire or make payments, make freelancing easier for this generation and the next by paying the right amount and by paying on time. Don’t take advantage of a person because they are in need of work or worse if they are new. Set an example, set your own rules and see how things change. Let’s support each other. Let’s bloom together! :) . Some thoughts from a recent conversation I had with my wonderful colleague where we were discussing the ecosystem of how the fashion industry works in some cases.
When to-do lists completely take over and I need a moment of calm... Quickly browsing through some images I created in Sydney last year and I notice how soothing the set turned out, in turn making me feel at peace. :) I haven’t given myself the time to take a single weekend off since the year begun but I’m grateful to be working on exactly the kind of projects which put a smile on my face and make me feel excited to wake up every morning. However, finding a balance is important and I am striving for it come April. I feel a lot of people talk about having a busy life but more people should be talking about how they achieve their goals while also taking care of their health, hobbies, loved ones and their minds.🌼
When I traveled to Maldives last year, I was very keen to experience as many aspects of it as possible. I always wondered what was beyond the crystal clear beaches and Rocket-Power-style island life. What do the locals do, what does that side of life look like, homes, jobs, careers... Lucky for me, I was traveling with my nicest troopers who were just as interested to explore. :) Finally shortlisting and editing the images I photographed during my stay.
