Finally, the long wait has come to an end: Design Indaba special India issue, “Once we were cool” has entered the building. Of course, the arrival of the magazine has been celebrated in perfect Indian style. Which means we had a big launch party.
Design Indaba magazine publisher Ravi Naidoo came all the way from South Africa and Wednesday night we had a beautiful time celebrating India, its culture, its heritage. A good mix of culturalistas, publishers, designers, writers, artists and all sorts of interesting people came out to party with us.
Charming old-school decorations, whiskey cocktails and a good bit of dancing: it was a great night.
Wish you were there.
