I am a storyteller  with a love for everything lingusitic, handmade, old-world Indian, slow, and spiritual. My love for words, and the understanding of weaving them with perceptive visuals and tactile elements deepened during my years as Features Editor-Fashion at FEMINA (lifestyle magazine with Worldwide Media Ltd.—Times of India/BBC). My work involved the generation of fashion content PAN-India, Middle East, Srilanka, Bangaldesh and other geographies via writing, editing, styling, curation, and editorial co-ordination. It all started with my  bachelors in fashion + design and masters in fashion + journalism. 

Over the years, I have contributed 300+ articles on fashion, travel and culture to publications (digital and print) like The Hindu, Hindustan Times, Time Out, Lonely Planet, Travel+Leisure, Maxim and others . Handled content projects for 15+ brands. And taught fashion communication at 10+ design institutes across India. Currently, I lead content for SAMOOLAM and DAALCHEENI.

Then a personal narrative led me to consciously reduce, reuse and recycle my own hoarded saris in geometric, zerowaste and artsy ways. Now, I apply all my writing, teaching and designing skills to Indian Slow & Spiritual Fashion Research Lab called REVASTRA  It promotes a #rephilosophy by making upcycled sari textile art for fiercely creative individuals.

For all work, I use the wisdom of my mixed nativity (Andhra + Odisha + West Bengal), line drawing, Yoga, Ayurveda, Origami and Orinuno, pottery, wannabe-polyglot syndrome (besides English, speak five Indian languages), and snakes — it has been an intimate love affair I have been bitten three times. Really wish I was a herpetologist, while my alter ego nurtures a secret desire to become a Parselmouth!
