When I first started supplying my clothes to multi-designer stores in India in 2010, Goa was the second destination I targeted after Mumbai. A lot of my inspiration comes from nature, and the ocean is one of its main components. Whether it was the underwater world or the changing colours with the different currents and tides, it all played a major role in the design. The first store I stocked at in Goa, is a store, which is still going strong – known as Sosas, and located in Panjim, it is known for resort, pert and cocktail wear.
Another very well-known clothing store, which has recently earned a name for itself is Nana Ki , which is in the compound of the all-famous French restaurant La Plage – at Morjim Beach. My next review is on a hotel in Morjim itself – SurlaMer.
Two thousand and thirteen was a year of changes for me. I was travelling more than ever before; I had just signed a deal with a new company to expand my brand. One of my best friends was performing in Seychelles. Just one quick glance at some pictures of the inspiring shorelines of the world’s best aquatic playground and I was certain that I was going to be on the same flight as her!
What followed were some crazy days! We decided in a heartbeat that we wanted to dive in those topaz waters and so did some impromptu scuba diving training in Mumbai. That was probably the best thing we ever did! As we reached our destination our jaws dropped. I had never seen a more beautiful and serene place in my life! Every aspect of that place was just miraculous and we were beaming all through our stay there!
