VIRAL, ASHISH & VIKRANT - VIRTUES - WIFW AW’13
“The collection name was Zubeida and it was inspired by a courtesan in the 17th century. She was flamboyant and she was extensive and she loved Indian heritage and she wanted everything in her wardrobe. Virtues is more of Indianess, more of Indian textiles and more associated with arts that are literally dying. Its inspiration soulfully comes from India, within India - Virtues represents India.” - Ashish
