A. A lot! Depending on my work schedule, I spend anywhere from 6 to 10 hours at the studio. Sometimes weekends too if it’s Fashion Week time.
A. Natural light, a couch, sketchbooks, music and a pin-board.
A. Various coffee apparatus, stationery, notebooks and sometimes art.
A. I wanted a place that was conducive to creation. Sunlight, a little green patch, perhaps a view outside that I may not get tired of (her studio overlooks the Hauz Khas lake) were just few of prerequisites.
A. My studio wasn't exactly aesthetic-driven, though I guess that’s subconscious process, I was looking to make a place that felt inspiring but was also equally functional. Once I had allocated space for office, staff and tailors, it was an organic process of adding things that served a function.
A. I need to keep on changing the way my space looks. In a city where everything becomes so monotonous, at least my space can keep on evolving. I move furniture around very often. The layout doesn't remain same for more than few months.
A. I keep moving around all day. Switching the sides of the desk or getting comfy on the sofa-bed or finding a nook on the balcony.
A. I’ve slept on my studio’s sofa-bed few nights. I worked till late and had to come back early for a meeting so decided to crash in the office. It wasn't weird at all!
A. I like to make myself my own cup of tea (her current obsession is Matcha tea) or walk through the workshop. Sometimes I just walk out to observe my clothes at Ogaan’s store nearby or head to the Deer Park for a stroll.
