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 rockn­ 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.
