We got an oppor­tu­ni­ty to have a chit chat with mul­ti-tal­ent­ed lady behind the ven­ture “APARNA SRIRAM” 
Q. Please tell us some­thing about you?

Aparna: I am Aparna Sri­ram, cur­rent­ly liv­ing in Pune, India. Born in the beau­ti­ful land of Ker­ala, I have trav­eled across many states through my stu­dent life. I have done my post-grad­u­a­tion in IT and worked as a Soft­ware audi­tor. After mar­riage, I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to trav­el abroad exten­sive­ly with my hus­band.kukenhof-garden_112

I am the warm and friend­ly per­son and have many hob­bies. At times your will find me bur­rowed deep inside a book. Then there will be times you can see me cook­ing up a storm to some recipe from the net and singing songs from the good old movies. I love trav­el­ing and immers­ing myself in the local cul­ture byways of food, art, music.

Win­dow shop­ping is past time I indul­ge in every time I step out. My life and I are not real­ly lim­it­ed to one thing or aspect. I love to learn new things, expand­ing my hori­zon of knowl­edge in every aspect. Life is so short and this world is so big. There is so much out there to learn

Q: Com­ing from an IT back­ground what was the turn­ing point which made you a domes­tic entre­pre­neur?

Aparna: Hav­ing worked in dif­fer­ent capac­i­ties in var­i­ous coun­tries, there came a time when I felt the need to slow down after I had my child. The long hours of IT job were no longer as appeal­ing and being at home made me rest­less. Slow­ly but sure­ly I let my imag­i­na­tion flow and dab­bled in paint­ing with var­i­ous media like fab­ric, glass, silk etc.

rome-023My rel­a­tives and friends appre­ci­a­tion and demands for sim­i­lar individualized/personalized pieces like cush­ion cov­ers, sarees, t-shirts fuelled my pas­sion.

Soon I start­ed receiv­ing orders from abroad …and hence rose the need to orga­nize and show­case my work into a por­tal which is now Geor­get­te Bou­tique; the place you come to for one-of-a-kind, per­son­al­ized fab­rics.

Q. Who is your inspi­ra­tion?

Aparna: I have been very lucky to have trav­eled across many states in India and many coun­tries abroad. This has real­ly enabled me to soak in the var­i­ous cul­tures from across the globe. Hav­ing had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to actu­al­ly learn silk paint­ing in France, Lipan kari­gari from Gujarat arti­sans, cal­lig­ra­phy from Japan has influ­enced the way I feel and paint.

I am for­tu­nate to have my moth­er who her­self is an estab­lished artist as my advi­sor and my soundboard.We dis­cuss at length about var­i­ous styles and tech­niques in paint­ing before mak­ing any design final.

Q: Tell more about Geor­get­te Bou­tique?

Aparna: Geor­get­te bou­tique is a page now on Face­book and will soon be a web page. It’s a place where I have show­cased some of my work done for clients thus far. You can see hand paint­ed Sarees, Kur­ta mate­ri­al, capris, T-shirts and many home decor arti­cles.

At Geor­get­te bou­tique, I have a dis­cus­sion at length with my client to know and under­stand their design requirements…I then come up with sev­er­al detailed draw­ings. Once the client is sat­is­fied only then does the design come alive on fab­ric. It’s a labor of love; each and every piece is hand paint­ed and unique. Some clients want their pieces to be so exclu­sive that they spec­i­fy that I nev­er pho­tograph their final designs. A sat­is­fied cus­tomer is an artist’s best friend.belgium090228-011

Q: How peo­ple can reach to you for orders? Is this won­der­ful col­lec­tion is avail­able online too?

Aparna: My per­son­al con­tact infor­ma­tion is avail­able on the web page, and I am eas­i­ly reach­able. Yes, in the shop sec­tion of my page I have pic­tures of appar­els that are ready for pur­chase.

Q: Any mes­sage to read­ers or to the ladies wish to start their ven­ture?

Aparna: Find­ing extra time is not always easy with mod­ern dai­ly sched­ules. Work, trav­el, fam­i­ly, health, are all things which take prece­dence over our time.Let your ideas and your quirky inspi­ra­tion and your dreams be the core of every thought, even while occu­pied with mun­dane, non-cre­ative activ­i­ties.

Find what excites you be it cook­ing, singing, trav­el­ing and try to find avenues to explore and learn more. There is not hid­ing tal­ent and pas­sion. Start small, go with the flow, give it time and you will be an inde­pen­dent, ful­ly func­tion­ing pro­fes­sion­al.
