When Stella and I first met years ago, we were both designing for our own lines, I for Amarilo, and she for Haati Chai. We both appreciated the beauty in each others designs, and our bond through food really established the relationship.
We even collaborated on a Capsule Collection called Bandhu (literally meaning friends). Through this, we realized how well we meshed in both personality, ethics, and design. Some of the designs are to this day our favorite pieces (my personal favorite was the Asnee ring)
Working with Stella has been incredibly eye opening and amazing to have a partner as supportive as her, and I know she can say the same for me ;) We have learned so much together on both our business paths, and personal journeys.
For this reason, we wanted to properly document it, through our Youtube Channel, Ali and Stella. You can watch the Pilot Episode here:
Currently we are ready to launch our upcoming episodes. I can't wait to share with you some BTS of our recent Novella Collection photoshoot, as well as the process that goes along with it.
Filming wouldn't be the same without our amazing team, and even more so, our highly (anal and perfectionist) director Theo Macabeo.
