I haven't been this excited to launch a campaign in a long, long time. Here's the first image from what I promise is the dreamiest thing I've done in a while...✨ #Repost @sienna_store
Sienna was born out of an idea we had of acting as a design collective for the works of Indian textile artisans. We started designing garments with lightweight handloom fabrics, dyed in subtle shades and printed with contemporary yet rustic patterns. We wanted to create a Sienna style that reflected our spirit. A year or so ago, joining hands with the gifted photographer Chhandak and the enigmatic, eloquent Karuna, we wandered through the alleyways of Calcutta and cloudy trails of Santiniketan to create a visual language for the clothing we make.

Here’s a brief glimpse of that collaboration, ‘When I was a Girl’, our way of bringing you into the world in which we create.

Separately, I'm not sure how many of you are following the news from Charlottesville, but if you haven't, please take a look. Feel lucky that you are safe in your freedoms, remember how hard won they are, and how fragile too...and how we can never ever stop fighting for them, and against the opposite.

Spent the last few weeks reading this really slowly and enjoyably. It's @granta_magazine's Pakistan issue, published in 2010 and perhaps more relevant today than ever before. My favourite pieces were Basharat Peer's essay 'Kashmir's Forever War', Fatima Bhutto's essay on Pakistan's black Sheedi community, Kamila Shamsie's absolutely wonderful look at the history of pop music in Pakistan, and Nadeem Aslam's haunting piece of fiction - Leila In The Wilderness. There's also a superb piece on Jinnah, poetry by Daniyal Mueenuddin and pieces by Mohammad Hanif, Mohsin Hamid, Declan Walsh, and many others. The issue gives one an incredibly holistic view of the young country, is harsh where necessary, and forgiving where one must be. The issue is widely available in Indian bookstores and on Amazon.

Let love alter you by making you a mirror,
let it brighten you, by making you the light,
let it do both, by teaching you to reflect,
let love do its work, you just do your best...

This weekend I had the absolute privilege to speak and share poetry at The Sheroes Summit, where I was surrounded by brave, cool, accomplished, ambitious, fun, and utterly glorious women who reminded me of many important things...including the revolutionary idea of one's own happiness. #sheroessummit #sheroes #sheroesindia #feminism #weshouldallbefeminists #poetry #ezarawrites
