Me: Where do you get your inspiration?

Shourouk: I get a lot of my inspiration living near the Centre Pompidou and from all the traveling I do for my brand. I also take a lot of inspiration from growing up watching Bollywood films with my mother, which explains the inspiration of my Fall 2011 collection of the Maharaja.
