Sonam Kapoor in local style: Actor Sonam Kapoor may be known for her international sense of style as she is spotted sporting Italian and French labels but she has decided to support desi designers. And the first from the lot happens to be Masaba, actor Neena Gupta’s daughter.
“It doesn’t matter who it is. Talent is talent and I always believed that it needs support,” Sonam said during an event. Sonam hinted that time that she will try to choose Indian designers over others whenever possible. “Indian designers are as good as anybody else in the world. We have the talent and we are good at it. When it comes to style, I think that Indians are one of the most stylish people in the world,” she added.
Masaba confirms that Sonam immediately agreed to support her when she approached her before launching her flagship store in Mumbai. “She was very supportive and I must tell you that she is unlike most other actors that I have come across. I had approached a celebrity who was the show stopper for Tarun Tahiliani’s show earlier but it is Sonam who immediately agreed to support me in this endeavor even though I am an upcoming designer,” says Masaba.
Not only did Sonam agree to inaugurate her flagship store, she will also be styled by Masaba for the event. Talking about her line Masaba says, “Dhotis, angarakhas, jumpsuits, ikat and silk sarees and shift dresses are some of the silhouettes. The colours are vibrant with patchwork playing a predominant role in most of my garments. My trademark style is fierce and bold with a strong play of colour and cut, but also traditionally rooted.”
