Neelam Modi collaborates with Udd to design a range called “PANCHI UDD” (flying birds in hindi)
“I believe in the beauty of change”, she says. “If things stay the same, we stop looking. When we stop looking, we stop seeing.”
According to Neelam, a key part of a designer’s job is to keep a fresh eye. “I’m interested in botanical art because the same plant can look so different at different times. An apple tree has gorgeous pink blossom in spring, bright rosy apples in summer, and glorious golden leaves in autumn. I also love working on illustrations for children’s books, because no-one has a fresher eye than a child.”
She smiles knowingly. “Then again, I’m also a fan of newness because I’m working on some great new designs. Where would the fashion industry be if we took joy in the same things for ever?”

You can have a peek at her work on:
Sangita Pillai collaborates with Udd for the MEHNDI MANCHAI range-
Sangita is an engineer by education, an artist at heart, an ideal combination of the left and right brain! Natural curiosity in the arts lead her to embroidery, sewing, sketching , crochet, knitting and anything that could be hand-made. She has never having had any formal training in the arts, and expresses herself through the various art forms, mostly with Indian motifs which is why she fit into UDD’S working family immediately.
Living away from India for almost two decades has made the Indian connection even stronger for her. She is passionate about peacocks and paisley which really excited us. Hoping we can work with Sangita soon on a range focusing only on paisleys!!
Her simplicity and honesty with just love for doodling made her perfect for the UDD spirit 🙂
We at Udd are grateful to have made yet another friend for life…
