Speaking about his new line, fashion designer Swapnil Shinde said, “This season I’m showcasing two distinctive styles; the first is dreamy and ethereal with lace and chiffon. The second is a very special line that I had earlier showcased at the New York Fashion Week for Project Runway; it’s more edgy, modern and futuristic, so there’s a lot of PVC and leather.”
All roads will lead to the Bangalore Turf Club this Sunday, July 10th, as the city’s glitterati make their way to the Kingfisher Ultra Derby 2016 – an event that is marked well in advance by race enthusiasts and socialites alike.
