Meet Mariko & Venk
In 2010, we met, on set, in Downtown Los Angeles. Venk was producing a comedy series and Mariko was a celebrity chef who offered her loft for the shoot.
The following decade brought many changes.
Mariko, moved to Asia then Bollywood and traveled the work as an international culinary expert and lifestyle host.
Venk went from working behind the camera, in the indie film world, to becoming a stylist and creative director working with burgeoning South Asian talent and Golden Globe winners and Academy Award nominees in Hollywood.
In 2020, Mariko and Venk met again in India and embarked on an adventure. Through the inspiration of color, textiles and unique accessories and intoxication of spices and local potions, Mariko & Venk was born.
