THE WINGS BENEATH OUR WINGS
An evening, a cup of tea, a conversation on creativity and fashion. A discovery that there was a common thread in their thoughts. A decision to converge their passions and create something new out of it. This was how Funky Fish was born. Today, this experiment has turned into a much-awaited affair every season.
For Pavithra, fashion has always been her middle name. A former model and a forever fashionista, she has been involved in merchandising and designing textiles for her time-honoured family-run business.
