    Ladies of Lune: Smriti Choudhary

    By  Roanna Fernandes

    Through our latest series, Ladies of Lune, not only do we get to document interesting women for @shoplune but we also get to know a little about a lot, between takes. There’s so much to talk about! We recently shot Smriti Choudhary, an artist with a flowy, peaceful vibe (her creations and illustrations have a similar calming feel to them) –
