“Nakedness reveals itself. Nudity is placed on display…The nude is condemned to never being naked. Nudity is a form of dress..”
(John Berger – British author, b. 1926)
Since several seasons I take most of the pictures of our collections at the upper terrace which is on the top of our office in Varanasi (Benaras) where an amazing wall is keeping traces of each monsoon and which is magnified by a natural light providing the best photo studio I could ever expect.
Those fashion photographies are not as simple as they pretend to be, each is dwelling with a real social work.
Among the many people involved there, Anand who is modeling for our catalogue since the begining of the company is escaping for a while his tough condition of boatman on the ganges and, using his dark colour skin complexion breaks a social taboo in India.
This woolen scarf is made with an aari embroidery, it involves weavers and embroiderers who were struggling with their workshops.
