Karishma Shahani is a recent graduate of the London College of Fashion and this is her student collection.  I’m floored.  The colors, the textures, the embellishments, the layering, the fabrics, that gorgeous blanket bag.  In her words: “India: The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and stark scarcity, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genie and giants, tigers and elephants, the city, the jungle, of a thousand religions and two million gods, the epitome of legends and traditions.”  Perfection.
