Fashion & textile designer Karishma Shahani graduated last year with many awards including, Graduate 100’s ‘Fashion Graduate of the Year 2010’. Her designs are an eccentric combination of experimental and unconventional with modern functionality. Today she guest blogs for OIO and tells us a bit about herself….

Favourite Project I’ve worked on.
I am partial to all of them. Equality and love to all. A new project ensures its position as a favourite to be lost when the next exciting one comes along, like now. Currently our new A\W 2011 collection Kranti.
Look out for Karishma Shahani’s Kranti…… coming to SOIO on the 28/09/2011.
