5 things jewellery designer Payal Shah loves right now
What I’m listening to: as I’m still reminiscing about my summer holiday, I’m listening to my Mykonos playlist on repeat. My favourite song of all time has to be Show Me Love by Sam Feldt featuring Kimberly Anne, and there’s a new remix out. I also love the new album by Years & Years, and Ojuelegba by Wizkid. I’m a huge fan of house music.
What I’m watching: I’m a TV junkie. I watch when I’m travelling or on the treadmill. Summer shows such as Suits, Devious Maids, Silicon Valley, Ballers and Unreal just ended – I love their combination of drama and comedy. I’m watching Tyrant, Mistresses, Startup U and Mr Robot, and waiting for new seasons of Game of Thrones, How to Get Away With Murder, Sense 8, Empire, Shark Tank, Scandal and Orange is the New Black.
What I’m reading: I’m reading #GirlBoss, the story of Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal. Just to give you an idea, she provides three pieces of advice in the beginning: “Don’t ever grow up. Don’t become a bore. Don’t let The Man get to you.”
What artists I’m following: a lot of those I follow are in fashion and jewellery. I recently started following artist @hatecopy – she affectionately calls her art an unholy union of Indian soap operas and Lichtenstein’s pop art.
Where I’m surfing: I’m a regular on BBC, Daily Mail, TechCrunch, Wired, Business of Fashion and E! Online. I’m always on sites with celebrity red-carpet looks, as I’m always trying to spot some of them wearing my jewellery.
