Every generation brings with it a posse of newcomers who, knowingly or unknowingly, change the rules. Ingénue, debutantes, call them what you will, but they herald the change that shakes up the old world order.

Styled to perfection for the Impact Issue,…

I’m really looking forward to having more heart-printed clothing in my wardrobe. @VogueIndia Shruti Vyas (@shrutiv96) In the cover story, I really liked how candid Isha Ambani was in @VogueIndia #February2019 issue. The private life that the Ambanis lead always made me wonder what type of a person she would be. Aangan Trust (@aangan trust) Excited to see Aangan’s work featured in @VogueIndia.
