“These pics are of my dad and his friends around 1977-78. They are all Zeliangrong Naga boys in their late teens studying in Shillong.

My dad was a free spirit, an all rounder – local singer, martial artist, he had plenty of friends and roamed around everywhere. I was surprised to hear he turned up good grades haha!

Those were interesting days, he used to say. They listened to Grand Funk Railroad, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt etc.
Bell bottoms were all the rage with block heel shoes. They would be 3-4 inches tall!”

street style mumbai india

Growing up in Pakistan and attending a little boarding school hidden in the foothills of the Himalayas, I started off a far cry from the world of fashion and design though I loved sketching, painting, and shopping for fabric at the night bazaars. With the lights ablaze on all the sparkling bangles, I would sit enchanted as roll after roll of embroidered chiffons, silks, and cottons would be unfurled in front of us to choose fabrics for new salwar kameezes. 

When I was about 12, a family friend asked me if there was anything she could bring back from a visit to the UK and for some reason I asked for a fashion magazine. She brought me back a copy of Vogue and although she had ripped out all the pages with nudity, it was the most intriguing thing I had ever seen.”
