In 2004 &2005, the idea of using crystals on eyelid, cheeks and lips wasn't the most popular choice for many fashion directors & designers. However, I opted to give it a try and it made such a difference. The models came to life with various features being played up because of the use of this type of accessory. I challenged myself to apply it to different cultures trying it out on Indian traditional wear as well as western gowns. It was something that caught the eye of other designers as well as photographers. For me, it was the beginning of a new era. The focus being on drawing out a new theme and creating a unique look.
