In celebration of the Huntsville Museum of Art's 26th Annual Gala, we will be welcoming India Hicks as the speaker of the event. About India: India was born in London, England, and comes from both British and design royalty. Her father was famed interior decorator David Hicks, and her mother is Lady Pamela Hicks, whose father was the last viceroy of India, hence India’s name. Her godfather is the Prince of Wales and India was a bridesmaid at his wedding to Lady Diana. After graduating from the New England School of photography, she was hired by Ralph Lauren for her first modeling job. India lives on a small island in the Bahamas, with her partner and their five children. She has produced three lifestyle books and designed collections of bath & beauty products, bedding and jewelry in partnership with others, but realized the time had come to build a company on her own terms. Alongside two strong business minded partners she launched her lifestyle brand: India Hicks. These collections are sold through networks of other entrepreneurial women, at home or one-to-one. Unencumbered by tradition, India has made bold life choices that inspire women to join her in the pursuit of an extraordinary life.
