‘When celebrities do it, it suddenly becomes beautiful’
#TheTouchOfIndia is an illustrated series by Canada-based graphic designer Amoolia Sai, in which she photoshops western celebrities in Indian clothes.
She is a student at OCAD University in Canada who was inspired to start the photo series after she saw Indian girls mocking a woman wearing her traditional salwar kameez. The artist also used her skills to dress celebs such as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner in traditional Indian garb
“As an Indian living abroad, I’ve come across a lot of people who put away their culture because they’re ashamed to carry it. The idea of the series is to appreciate one’s culture. It’s to show that there is no shame in showing who you are and most importantly to tell the world that yes; appreciate other cultures, but never forget yours”
