LOLA BY SUMAN B
Suman Bhat is a young fashion designer from Goa, who has risen to instant fame. The fiveyear-old label Lola By Suman B retails in Kitsch, Aza, Atosa, Ensemble, and online on rocknshop.com and perniaspopupshop. com. She has a loyal following of Bollywood stars as well. She started her business from home, and would draft patterns and cut fabric on the soft boards she picked up at a plywood shop. The floor was her work desk! At 17, she interned and later worked with designer Wendell Rodricks. A Fashion graduate from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune, she launched her first collection on Facebook offering about 12 ensembles all sewn and embroidered by her. That was then. Today, she has opened her flagship store in Fontainhas, an old Latin Quarter in Panjim.
IN THIS ISSUE: In Style Quotient, we feature a winsome combination of Lola By Suman B’s feminine yet daring silhouettes with Deepa Gurnani’s embroidered jewellery creations.
