Mira Felicia Malhotra is the principal designer and founder of Studio Kohl, a boutique design house based in Mumbai. In this talk, Mira will showcase Studio Kohl’s practice championing topics such as gender and mental health issues, that adhere to feminist ideals that inform its practice. The ambition is to present a South Asian perspective authored by South Asians themselves and a rightful taking back of the narratives on global platforms. Through the lecture we explore a landscape fraught with many problems: successfully balancing client expectations, a fluctuating, demanding market, a rapidly growing design landscape, and a fervent dedication to the design problems at hand.
