500 B.C.

Anandita Shah's label, 500 B.C., is all about juxtaposing local textures within an international structure. 500 B.C., has fittingly then, been inspired by both the Indian milieu Shah occupies, and the time she spends in the urban West. Her design aesthetic is informed by what German philosopher Karl Jaspers called the Axial Age, and by her great passion for travel. According to Jaspers, during the period between 800 B.C. and 200 B.C., the foundations of human spirituality were simultaneously formed by great thinkers in Persia, India, China, and the Occident. 500 B.C. marks the pivotal midpoint in the Age when the Buddha and Mahavira, sages who revolutionized Indian thought, were born. Shah was born and brought up in Mumbai, and studied accessory design at The London Institute. Her fascination with mythology, art, music, architecture and philosophy ties in with her global adventures and forms the label's sensibility - the traditional within the modern.
