The Myth of Waris Ahluwahalia

October 29, 2009

**Video and text by Susan M. Kirschbaum

Yes, he was born in India and lived in Brooklyn before catching the fashionably studied eye of director Wes Anderson, who has cast him in films. Waris once even drove an old Buick, at least I remember it as a Buick when he picked me up in his party caravan. But this guy was destined to be a star. Waris’ latest collection puts him right up there with the crown jewels. Drop earrings with precious gems he plucked  from Thailand fall like dew drops. And in his collaboration with photographer (his dear friend) Andrew Zuckerman (“Bird” Chronicle books), Waris fashioned wings on delicate gold chains. But, I’m really loving the crown rings and bracelets… “You’re like Tiffany’s.” I told him. “No, it’s like House of Waris.” He laughed. Yeah… LET LOVE RULE.
