Fashion finds, hot trends, new entrants on the designer block....
The Anand Kabra label retails in various upscale boutiques all over
India and appeals to a remarkable mix of high profile clientele,
the likes of which include Feroz Gujral, Shobhaa De, Pinky Reddy
and Dia Mirza. Lakme Fashion Week has finally brought Anand Kabra,
an introvert by nature, into the spotlight. His designs, contrary
to his reticent personality, never fail to make a bold style statement.
Using the different identities of a woman as his true inspiration,
he inimitably combines pure Indian fashion with western silhouettes
to create unique designs. Take your pick from his trousseau ensembles
or, the more sophisticated western line.
Available at select stores all over the country.

Cristalline is a vibrant, fun and trendy jewellery line created
by Rekha Wadhwani. From arts and crafts, flower arrangements, Japanese
brush paintings to making hair accessories which she supplied to
Body Shop, Rekha's fascination with stretch cord jewellery convinced
her to experiment with crystals and glass beads four years ago.
Over the last couple of years she has introduced a wider, more exciting
range of items such as earrings, anklets, prayer beads, phone tags,
handbag tags, wine charms and candle decorations, using a lot of
Swarovski and Austrian crystals, cultured pearls, semi-precious
stones, shells and resin coated beads. The eye-catching crystal
and pearl bracelets are an irrefutable favourite.

Kanchan And Amrita Mehra
A jewellery designer with twenty years of experience and a young turk with practical knowledge from The Gemological Institute of America. This talented and skilled mother-daughter duo have created their own exquisite jewellery line featuring diamond, pearl and coloured stone bangles, earrings, rings, necklaces and cuffs. They focus on constantly creating new and unique concepts that are in sync with the latest fashion trends. The precious and semi-precious stones used by Amrita and Kanchan are hugely influenced by the different seasons; for spring/summer they use bright, vivid stones like turquoise, citrine and corals; for fall/winter, rich, deep tones of rubies and sapphires. We recommend their chic cocktail jewellery which would be suitable for numerous occasions.
