I have often found myself in the dichotomy of being a custodian of everyday humble luxury versus an obssesive extravagant dreamer.
The blend of the two is what makes a Torani muse for me. Think Frida Kahlo meeting Waheeda Rahman… or Amrita Shergil meeting Audrey Hepburn. The idea of a quaint personality meeting an untamed wanderer excites and motivates me both. It is possibly who I am as well.
Our All new range ~ “Chaap Tilak” is the perfect marriage of the two. A pendulum between a qaint palatte of color, florals, embroideries and textured fabrics…which settles into a canvas of balance, space and timelessness.
Treating the art of Tents and band musicians as a heritage
A Brand Campaign that is an emotional ode to the founder’s father’s journey
As the Founder Narrates
My father was a ‘wedding tent decorater’ (with a firm called - Sindhi Tent House) in Delhi around the late 80-90s, a term which faded away with the oncoming of fancy wedding planners. — The job required him to direct the overall aesthetics of the wedding and arrange every single item at the venue. What he also did back then was to visit the phool mandi each morning with the florist and buy flowers by the kgs. — Spending a large part of my childhood around the weddings he planned, I accompanied him during his recces and and visits to the flower market. It became a routine for him to bring those mounts of florals home and fill them up in my room post the event, he knew I was obsessed with them. My room would smell like a garden for days.
While this Campaign began with an emotional ode to my father’s uncelebrated journey… as he never got his dues.. upon my research it also became about celebrating the people we so easily choose to forget.
The baarati bandwalas, and halwais who couldn’t keep up with the international music and cuisines millennials want at their wedding. The desi Shehnai and ghazal singers who yearn for just another mehfil…and the old school film-camera shops who couldn’t keep up with fancy instagram wedding videos. The people who were responsible for putting together someone’s special day and had to slowly fade into oblivion.
Sindhi Tent house is an ode and a celebration to the families and homes that run because of weddings. Its an ode to the lost glory block printed and handcrated bengali kanaats and tents of delhi….. the gaudy dj ka music in the colonies of lajpat nagar…. The sparkly tubelights of a baraat… and the jalebis and rabdi of a winter wedding.
Faces of eternal feminine
“The human body is the best work of art and a women’s body is an art in herself”
The literature on prejudice toward women is reviewed and placed within an attitude-theory conceptualization. The erotic has often been misnamed by men and used against women and for this reason, we have often turned away from the exploration and consideration of the erotic as a source of power, energy, and information, that how a woman creates the whole world by herself. Erotic is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire.
Spiritualizing sex is actually a movement of energy—feeling and emotion—that rises within you and moves into your sexual physicality as an alive, tender, erotic, or passionate expression. Your bodies move without inhibition so all the energy can flow out of you. The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling.
