The collection was launched in 2007 and was quickly selected by Saks Fifth Avenue, Moda Operandi, Catbird, and ABC Carpet and Home amongst other international retailers. Vikas traces his roots in jewelry back to his ancestral homeland in the north western deserts of India. His homeland is a place enchanted by history, mysticism and beauty and is where the edifices of his family lineage still stand today. Each edifice was carved with the most skilled hand; to tell stories of mythology of the land. Through his trips back to India it was these stories that continue to inspire his collections.From an early age Vikas developed a fascination with the balance of simplicity and purpose in design. With an engineering degree from MIT, Vikas nurtured a nonconformist approach that merges fashion, engineering, and design. Vikas balances his approach with beauty and softness that was instilled by his mother who studied textile design at FIT after arriving from India in the 70's.
