Before I dive into the Talisman Collection, let me tell you a bit about Jyotika Jhalani, who is the Founder of Janavi India. Jyotika is a force to reckon with. An entrepreneur who is intense, powerful, curious, kind, and knows how to run an international business as-if she was born with it.
My desire to photograph for Jyotika was more about getting to spend more time with her, hoping that some of her smarts will rub off on me. As soon as I found out that Janavi India was going to be showcasing at fashion week for the first time ever ( they are a 20 year strong brand ), I desperately wanted to photograph the show. I was also curious about what the FDCI had conjured for a fashion week during the pandemic.
Janavi presents three distinct stories that weave together symbols for pretection, inspiration, and a celebration of life.
