431-88 Shweta Kapur, A Designer Ahead of Her Times

Hi Everyone, 🙂

How are you guys doing? 🙂 Been a while.:)

I attended Shweta Kapur’s 431-88 show at the recent Amazon India Fashion Week. While I was leaving, I bumped into Shyma and Pranav of Huemn (the brilliant designers behind the outfit I wore in Kashmir and Budapest? ). So Shyma asked me ” so are you going to blog about it? “. I said , ” No I don’t blog about fashion shows. I am just attending for Shweta.” But then I came back and thought why don’t I? 431-88 recent SS16 collection is something I absolutely loved and I could share it with you all. So there you go… 🙂


Shweta and I go way back. I discovered her brilliance in a random fashion exhibition that I visited years back. I haven’t looked back since then. I have so many pieces from her collections over these past years and I always look forward to including more. She is a London Fashion School pass out and has worked with big names such as Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla and Burberry before starting her own line 431-88. She calls her collection sports-luxe. I’d say it’s cool and sexy both. Everyone can wear and feel awesome in her clothes. Her attention to details in insane. I have seen her doing those cool oversized shirts to the crazy awesome laser work in her recent collection. She has come such a long way and she is way ahead of her time. The knots that have become such a rage in 2015 in shirts and trousers, she did them 2 years back already! 😀 Check out some my favourites from her recent collection in the pics below and what I wore for her fashion show. 🙂 You may shop her pieces from her website 431-88.com

Talk to you all soon! 🙂
