As an Indian, I have rarely seen Indian artists tackle what if scenarios relating to Indian Art and Cultural history. My passion for art history has often resulted in me wondering about India's approach to fashion had it been influenced by the European Renaissance and how that would translate to modern fashion. This project brings these thoughts and ideas to visualization and is presented through the perspective of a single fictional royal family, The Garhwal Gharana aka The House of Garhwal spanning generations from an alternate timeline 15th century to the 21st century.
