When I came across “I am drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale” a quote by Brad Pitt it reminded me of Monica Echavarria Modak whose similar passion led to the inception of KAYU with her friend Ritu Vij. First look at their furniture urged me to create romantic spaces within the confines of our sweet home for the coming Valentine and many more years to come.
“I’m thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag but we’d feel naked in public without it.”

“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”

This store in Delhi’s Khan Market surely knows how to attract curious onlookers….. Second Floor Studio makes a statement with aplomb. Its assortment of vintage and contemporary items egged me to look at everything twice over, as each one seemed apt for someone I know or a place in my environment.
As a woman, the first thing that drew my attention was the modern, yet timeless, costume jewellery by a Jaipur-based designer AKFD Anantaya, En Inde,whose pieces are industrially inspired and the nature’s motifs artistically crafted by Valliyan. These upcoming designers are seen sharing the limelight for being innovative yet traditional in their approach. Some other enterprising names here are Olivia Dar for her Peter Pan encrusted collars and belts Joli for their kitschy keychains, and Khamsa, Alecca Carrano and Cirare for their versatile and trendy bags and pouches: a clear deja vu of the glossy International fashion magazines featuring them on celebrities.
