Krishna, her thoughts and her garments...
Growing up in India, in between the haze of the old-world customs and the acceptance of modern values
She uses her heritage as the starting and the ending point for all her design inspirations, re-living the classic design fundamentals of the country.

She grew up with a balance, addressing the importance of environmental issues, gender rights, community development, etc “We Indians are fortunate, to be able to maintain a fine balance between the sensitivities of our diverse cultural heritage and the international outlook.” Says Krishna.
