So BAZAAR SASHA GREWAL AND KAABIA GREWAL, jewellery designers , O uthOuse How did you settle on a common vision for your jewellery label Outhouse? Sasha Grewal: Our aesthetic is a good mix of our personalities. It’s not trend-based and that’s what defines the whole brand aesthetic.

If we agree 10 times, we KG: But that’s good because otherwise there disagree 20 times. is no challenge. If tomorrow someone tells you they don’t like your work, you should be open to criticism and try to improve. What is a typical working day like? SG: Each of us has our own responsibilities so that kind of sets the pace for the day. We keep talking to each other though for final approvals or decisions. How do you help each other’s work? KG: It’s more like we challenge ourselves to meet our various deadlines. As sisters, we drive each other to be better. SG: We take each other’s pressure in a good, strong, and positive manner. With a sister around, there is somebody helping you get to your goal. Do you find it difficult to separate work and home? KG: Work travels with me everywhere. SG: Kaabia is very hardworking while I tend to work better when there’s a deadline. Unlike her, I can switch off when I come back home. How would you define each other’s style? SG: Kaabia is very colourful and she can pull off outfits that are a bit more in style. KG: Sasha’s sense of dress is very sharp and modern. Her look is clean but she’s not afraid to be a bit dramatic. She’s very good at mixing things together. What would you steal from your sister’s wardrobe? SG: I would steal Kaabia’s Fendi bag charm. KG: There are just too many things. I can’t decide. n (From left) On Sasha: Dress, Falguni Shane Peacock. On Kaabia: Dress, Tanieya Khanuja. Shoes, Sophia Webster. All jewellery, Outhouse.
