What is the inspiration behind your line Hemant & Nandita?
Our inspiration has always been India and its diverse culture. The architecture, the people, the religion and the colors have molded us into the people we are today. All of it makes its way into our collections in some way or another.
How would you describe your latest collection?
The Summer 2019 collection is inspired by Jaipur and its magnificent architectural designs and opulent artwork. The garments flawlessly capture the warmth and richness that the old city has to offer. The prints are reminiscent of the artwork in the majestic forts that are adorned in flowers and motifs.
