Our rent is going up, so Snowy joint the workforce.

Couldn’t resist putting the collar off of a thrifted shirt on my little boy. Doesn’t he look the most handsome?

We need matriarchies because we are still overcoming internalized misogyny.

We need matriarchies because we need more exposure to such female leader role models, and finally demolish those outdated stereotypes about women's abilities.

We need matriarchies so that out educational systems are better designed to equip boys and girls with critical thinking skills to question and challenge internalized biases.

We need matriarchies that foster supportive networks where women uplift and encourage each other, helping individuals combat feelings of inferiority or self-doubt stemming from internalized misogyny.

In recent times, I've found myself engaged in profound conversations with individuals curious about the motivation behind my Culture Not Costume series. To many, the idea that cultures evolve, blend, and adapt organically seems like an unquestionable truth, rendering the need for any form of 'gatekeeping' redundant. While I respect and understand this perspective, there's a profound aspect that I believe requires a closer look.

Our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) cultures are not monolithic; they're multifaceted, lived in diverse ways, and are deeply personal to those who identify with them. As someone of Indian heritage who spent much of my life outside of India, I've had to navigate the delicate dance of balancing multiple identities.

I hesitate to generalize, but it's a shared experience among many in the Indian diaspora to have felt 'less than' for being 'too Indian.' We've witnessed other communities and races appropriating elements of our culture without truly understanding their significance. It's a complex emotional journey, feeling like a guardian of a heritage while watching it become a frivolous fashion trend or costume choice for others.

Moreover, if you've grown up in a country that observes Halloween, you'll likely understand the quiet irritation that bubbles up around that time of year. It's rooted in the countless times I've watched non-Indians dress up as Ganesha, Kali, or Gandhi without comprehending their deep spiritual and cultural significance. It's a reminder of the years I spent carefully avoiding having deity statues on display at home, a personal choice that was far from a fashion statement.

The Culture Not Costume series emerged from a place of necessity. It's my way of reminding my inner Indian child that she is not 'too much.' She has every right to embrace her culture in all its richness, without external influences or judgments. These T-shirts are a heartfelt declaration that I, and anyone who resonates with this message, can proudly celebrate their heritage without reservation.

How beautiful are these pictures of in our Chaandani linen dress, shot by the takented .mondi

I first saw these pictures when I was in India, right after my radio iodine therapy. Which means I was in the midst of battling a lot of nausea and over all exhaustion. I was also battling some fear over whether or not I would be healthy and capable enough to continue to make the things I love. But the divine mother works in beautiful ways. I received these pictures just when but I needed the “buck-up” to keep going; to keep fighting for my health, wellness and creative practice.

Thanks Nea & Sigis, for this divinely orchestrated, beautiful gift 🙏❤️❤️❤️

Can’t believe it’s already time for me to go back for another round of treatment. Has it already been a month since I’ve been back? I only just started getting my strength back.

This time the trips going to be a bit longer and hopefully the last of my lifetime 🤞

Wish me luck.

Meanwhile, only 2 days until I fly, so put in your orders asap so I can have them fulfilled and shipped before I catch my flight.

Much love

Yay! How amazing does look in our Matriarchy Tshirt!

This collection of tshirts has only grown in significance for me after my cancer diagnosis. At a time when I felt very fragile, I am so so so grateful to have a my sisters hold my hand and show me the love and nurturing I didn’t know I needed.

This isn’t to dismiss all the love that every member of my friends and family showed me. But my sisters hold a special place in my heart for their intuitive approach to my care.

May the matriarchy continue to flourish 🙏🙏🙏

While most of the pieces I designed showcase traditional Pakistani Kutch embroidery, this is the only design in which I used traditional Kantha embroidery. In fact I repurposed an old Kantha Saree to create this piece. I hope my mom knows her saree has found a second life in one our dresses. Only three pieces in this design.

These shirts are really special to me. For my first foray into screen printing I chose this phrase because it highlights how we need more active and projective feminines. The age of the being feminine has passed. The time for every woman to find her inner matriarch has arrived. There is much work to do. We are mother nature’s daughters. And there is much we can do to change our own and our children’s relationship with nature and her many creatures.

I think I’ve found my most zen sewing project ever! It’s sewing reusable menstrual pads.

Every month before my period, when PMS is at an all time high, and I’m my most rooted version of self, I like to sit at my sewing machine and pump out a batch of reusable sanitary pads.

I swear by my new - and soon to be launched - reusable menstrual pads. They’re kind on the environment and super kind to your sensitive skin. I’ve been a major advocate for wearing cotton in this climate, so why should women menstruation needs be any different.

Watch this space for more news… probably after I’m done with my PMS.

It’s been a little quiet in the social media front because I’ve been a little preoccupied with putting together designs for a new collection.

My favorite print from our cotton caftan collection is this ‘Isla’ polka dot print. There is something so whimsical and nostalgic about polkadots that I can’t resist including one such print in every collection.

Find these caftans on my website, alternatively you can also visit in Al Quoz all of January to see them in person.

I’ve decided I’m going to be channeling Snowy’s dapper energy in 2023. He knows he looks pretty and he’s working the camera. We could all use a dose of his confidence.

Everything I have created this year is a reflection of the work I have done on myself to live more authentically.

I know some of the content might not seem unpalatable to some of us, and for that I want to be apologetic, but with love, I’m not. 🫶

My unsilencing has brought me closer to feeling love and compassion on a deeper level. I wouldn’t want to give that up for anything.

Here’s hoping 2023 brings more creative adventures and personal evolution - for you and me.

XOXO - Ro
