Even though I am not one of those over enthusiastic dressers, Cecile d’Ascoli’s line of pure fabrics seemed like one of the most obvious choices to me this summer. French at heart but Jew by birth, she met her husband 9 yrs ago at the Oberoi Hotel, New Delhi, when their common friend introduced them to each other for sourcing Indian fabrics and embroideries. Destiny played its part well since now she is settled in the same country which helped her establish her work elsewhere and also find her soul mate.
New Delhi brought in the first India Design ID 2013 patronizing the works and people covered by Elle Decor, at NSIC grounds with collateral events at design districts like Lado Sarai, Shahpur Jat and Meherchand mkt.; spreading the buzz in public spaces,bookshops,restaurants, and art galleries from 15th-17th February ’13.
