Can you tell us about Joey & Pooh X Payal Singhal?
It’s a funny story about how we must have been destined to work on this collaboration, the founder of Joey & Pooh – Shivani sent me a message on Instagram and I immediately replied to her. Coincidentally, both of us were in Dubai at the same time and two days later we actually bumped into each other at the Airport. I think this was more than a sign for both of us that this collection had to be created and that’s how we started on the journey of the Payal Singhal X Joey & Pooh collaboration.
