Says Twinkle on the expansion of the White Window décor line to resortwear , ”I enjoy putting things together but that’s a far cry from being a fashion designer –my understanding of design is firmly based on my training and practice in interior design and though aesthetics are common in both, I prefer to use mine in furniture and interior design. My work is my biggest inspiration, I think I actually learned how to dress only as a reflection of my work in the interior business; I follow the same principles in both –clean cut structures and a fusion of colours and cultures and I love accessories in both home design and fashion.”
“The philosophy of a lifestyle permeates everything you do its the way you live, to what you wear to how you wrap your gifts its an amalgamation of living in the best way one possibly can. The Villa Tara holiday line by the White Window caters to every mood be it art to put on your walls to embellished velvet cushions to lounge on to gauzy slip-ons over your swimsuit to even scented sachets to make sure your lingerie smells wonderful to wearing kaftans to sleep which make you feel like a glamorous diva–that’s a total lifestyle, ” maintains Twinkle Khanna.
