Payal approaches dressmaking as 'a shift in canvas'. As a painter her art is inspired by the human form, and by colour, texture and structure.
Her designs continue to marry these same influences as she sculpts, twists and drapes the garment that wraps a body. She is a fashion design graduate from SNDT in Mumbai with a BFA from The Parsons School of Design in New York and a diploma from Metafora in Barcelona.
Her layered separates are infused with a sense of play and an element of surprise.
