Afew issues ago we featured Alpa Rama, founder and blogger-in-chief of the wildly successful “A Parisian in America”. Born in Paris, currently residing in the States, Rama has created an online portal that oozes chic without forsaking her Eastern heritage. Rama’s family immigrated to Paris in the late 1980s from Gujarat, India offering Rama and her siblings a “best-of-bothworlds” upbringing. Since we last sat down with Rama, her other venture Osiyan Paris has taken off in a huge way. Named after a village in Rajastan known for its handicrafts, Osiyan is a partnership between Rama and her brother Mehul. Offering unique designs using only the highest quality materials, Osiyan Paris’ aim is to offer a chic product at a reasonable price. If their word isn’t enough, the jewellery label also boasts being a product of France. Osiyan is truly a staple every jewellery box craves.
I recently had the chance to discuss the label with the brother-sister duo and find out what inspires them.
