When traveling internationally, I always keep my eyes peeled for brands/designers/stores that are native to that location. So while I was in India, I would ask co-workers where they shop, brands they liked, designers they loved. I also did some research on my own by picking up fashion mags such as Vogue India.

But really, what does one put in a silly little pocket like that? So when it was go-time to shoot this outfit, he rolled his eyes. Another drug pocket tee? Yes, Dan, yet another ‘too flowy’ top with a pocket that isn’t very useful. But what it lacks in functionality, it makes up in softness.  How pretty is this lavender hue?
