One of the best parts of my job is my annual trip to India, where I oversee the beginning of production for the coming year's ranges. Naudic is lucky to work with some wonderful and very talented people in India, and it is always a pleasure catching up with them and being able to work hands-on with the products. Beyond that, it is always an amazing experience to take in the sights, sounds and yes, smells, of India.
This year's trip is just days away, and the anticipation of being back in that beautiful country is making me reminisce about last year's visit.
It's impossible not to be inspired for fabric ideas by the glorious colours and prints the Indian women wear.
Last year's trip included a visit to the majestic Taj Mahal. Pictures truly do not do this building and its grounds justice. I wanted to move in!
I was also fortunate enough to be invited to the Delhi Hyatt for a fashion launch by one of my most treasured Indian contacts. It was amazing.
This was the beautiful invitation:
And the fashion show in full swing.
Finally, the best part of the trip: working with the fabric that will become beautiful Naudic garments.
Look forward to sharing some of the highlights of this year's trip very soon!
