The photographer, Jamie Thomas, happened to be in town for a shoot, when he was introduced to Kamali by Chennai-based consultant, Aine Edwards.

"I had known Kamali since she was three, and saw that she had gotten better at skating over time. I knew they [Thomas and his team] had to meet her then," Edwards told BuzzFeed.
