Masaba Gupta is one of the most promising amongst the emerging young Indian designers. Her designs can carry the tag of being traditional and edgy in the same sentence and still make complete sense!

Thinking Bride; Masaba’s latest collection at the Lakme Fashion Week- Winter Festival 2010 was everything festive clothing should be – Vibrant and edgy.

Her collection is fearlessly spunky.  The silhouettes remain simple and easy with interesting cuts. Pure silks and cottons are used with motifs inspired from mythology.  After Manish Arora, it is only in Masaba’s collection where vibrant colours have been embraced unapologetically.

When Vogue asked her about her latest collection, she replied, “The Thinking Bride collection is for the modern woman who likes to experiment, have fun with her clothes and would rather not dress like a chandelier”.

We heard you, Masaba! After all, fashion is all about having fun with clothes!
