The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal

At SoulQuest we work on exploring and interpreting India and it’s heritage to weaving it with contemporary fashion. This journey took a new form when Gurpreet visited the Taj Mahal few months ago . Images of various aspects of the Taj - the famous and not really noticed before - became the inspiration for the Taj Collection.

To interpret the Taj into hand embroidery embroidery for fashion garments we needed to find a craft form and artisans who could partner in this quest. The Chikankari of Lucknow we felt would be ideal . After several weeks of discussions , development and iteration the Taj Collection took shape. The range is exquisite and elegant.  We share below some glimpses of this Collection….
