Grad Featured in Sunday Guardian

September 11, 2017

Indian fashion designer Payal Jain, who graduated from FIDM in 1993, is profiled in the Sunday Guardian where she talks about her path to the fashion industry, her self-titled brand, the latest collection, and giving back to those in need. Payal describes her line as having "a Western body with an Indian soul," and finds inspiration all around. 

Speaking on her inspiration for her designs, she says, “The first inspiration for a collection can take root with a beautiful flower blooming, a mesmerising sunrise, travel to an exotic destination, a great book, a historical period or character, an artist’s work or simply an inspired frame of mind. My love for India and its glorious past, rich culture, vast textile heritage, incredible costumes, musical legacy, art, and architecture have all come together to inspire my work in fashion.”
