Labeling Men: What inspired your collection this season?
Sheena Trivedi: LOVE and falling in love. I recently was married. It was a very quick process from the time my husband and I met to the ceremony and the whole experience really opened new doors for my creative output. It may sounds a bit cliche, but when you know, you just know. I wanted to express what I was going through feelings within this collection. For example, there are a lot of details in shape of lightning bolts - if someone were to ask me how it feels to be in love, for me, it's like being struck by lightning but in a positive connotation. In addition, the color palette of my collection ties in colors of Indian sunsets as well as clouds [whites/blues]
