"There is always a better way. I arrived into India 8 years ago knowing two people, a suitcase and a head bursting with creative ideas. One of those two is my Indian based bestie and the other one ripped off my ideas. I’ve just finished my 30th trip to India and I think I might have nailed it, however there is always more, India is an endless source of inspiration. I’ve learnt a lot and I’m happy to share, to help you not make the same mistakes in your fashion creative business."
