Our Cover Story is the journey of an inspirational and important individual, who has not only highlighted the business of fashion but given fashion a whole new meaning. Founder of Business of Fashion, Imran Amed began his extremely successful company as a blog, and today, fifteen years later, Business of Fashion has become one of the most important names and voices in the fashion industry. As Khoj celebrates twenty-five years, we converse with Co-Founder Pooja Sood, who lets us in on what the artist space has planned for the years to come. Bookmaker, Photographer, and the recipient of Hasselblad Award 2022, Dayanita Singh’s photo-novel celebrates her earliest years as a photographer, when she didn’t really consider herself one. Let’s See presents images from her archives, most of which will be seen for the first time. Master storyteller and one of my favourites, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni shares her relationship with writing and what it took to craft her upcoming novel Independence. Filmmaker, Actor, Writer, Nandita Das will be releasing her latest film Zwigato, a story of new urban India. The film gives an insight into the lives of the often unseen people who really are the heart and soul of the nation and its economy.
Anoushka Shankar lets us into her home, Her Jannah, and in an unfiltered conversation shares her joy and challenges of motherhood, how she balances her life, what questions arose through the pandemic, and how she’s making sense of her new found realisation. Awarded Best Chef New York State from the coveted James Beard Foundation, Master Chef Chintan Pandya and Restaurateur Roni Mazumdar take us through their unapologetic journey of serving authentic Indian food to the western market through their various restaurants. One such eatery, Semma, won its first Michelin Star in 2022. What’s Your Story? presents interesting, eclectic, and extremely artistic talents from different genres of creativity. The visual narrative highlights key thoughts that have shaped their artistry. Historian and Author Moin Mir, takes and makes us take a pause to celebrate Selinunte - The Sanctuary of Silence.
And Coming Through In Waves, Bharat Sikka’s most recent photo essay, explores the youth culture, and invites and starts conversations around identity, gender, sexuality, and thoughts that are relevant to our times.
With that and much more, we end 2022 and wish you all a fantastic and creative 2023.
