Organised at Mumbai’s swanky Olive Bar & Kitchen at Mahalaxmi Race Course, the Stylista Pop Up featured three trending designers who are taking contemporary Indian fashion by storm.
Inspired by her own gypsy-chic sartorial sense, Monica Dogra’s collection featured quirky crops tops and a host of dresses featuring paisleys and designs that traced their roots to her Kashmiri heritage. We loved her tops and dresses emblazoned with the words, ‘City of Bombay’ as well as the kaftan dress, which carried the print of the sunset she had photographed! There are only 35 pieces by the singer-fashion designer-artist so don’t wait too long before the collection is available.
The typewriter, cycle, TV and dagger found an unusual yet adorable place in Masaba’s collection. Recreated in minute, illustrative detail, these black and white prints were interspersed with neon pink, green and yellow in shirt dresses, skirts, shorts and, our favourite, jackets! Call them conversation starters or expressing your individuality—we heart this talented young designer’s work. Her limited edition pieces will be available at affordable prices online so get a move on!
Known for their luxury beachwear, Shivan & Narresh wowed us once again with a collection that featured their signature black and white stripe swimwear and cover-ups. Enlivened by bold colour blocking with sea blue and red, they even had rainbow stripes in one piece and two piece suits meant to earn you that second look. With just 30 pieces available soon, make sure you don’t miss it.
With dainty Origami birds, pop art postcards, fairy lights and a lovely bicycle print curtain, the Stylista Pop Up was artfully designed at Olive’s porch and complemented the three designers beautifully!
Not to be left out, Stylista also displayed their original designs that reflected the latest trends in fashion from florals to monochromes in chic colours like cobalt blue and camel.
Grabbing a quick chat with Anjana Sharma, COO and Fashion Director, Stylista.com, we found that the collections of all the three designers will be available online soon and all under ₹6,000! In fact, most of the designs are priced around ₹3,500, making the collections a must-see for all you label-hounds. What’s also exciting is the fact that Monica Dogra has created a special music video for Stylista with some pretty interesting lyrics... we can’t wait!
