As someone rightly said, Fashion is not about clothes, it is about a look, and no look is complete without the right outfit, jewellery to go with it and a confident and charming smile. When it comes to traditional south Indian fashion, nobody can beat Bhargavi Kunam. The designer par excellence has 13 years of experience in the field and her own personal style as testament. And while there are numerous jewellers and jewellery designers out there, one that caught our attention was Parnicaa by Parinika Reddy. The young and talented jeweller has carved a niche in made-to-order jewellery and made a name for herself in the competitive world of jewellery. Together, the two are like a house on fire! Bhargavi’s elegant garments act as the perfect canvas for Parinika’s ornaments. It’s no surprise then that the two are always in perfect tandem, dressed beautifully from head to toe.
Celebrating the festive wave this week, on the cover we have fashion designer Bhargavi Kunam and jewellery designer Parinika Reddy in their ethnic splendours. The duo made a name for themselves in the competitive world of design. In the Cover Story the prolific fashion and jewellery designers talk to us about their label, collection, and their relationship with their work.
Christmas is almost here, and the festive feeling is in the air! It’s a time for joy and happiness, and for many, it’s about reliving the good memories of their childhoods, even as adults. For kids, it’s about innocence, excitement and presents, but it’s also important to remember the true spirit of Christmas – peace, friendship and helping those who aren’t as fortunate as we may be. To help get into the festive spirit during the pandemic, seven families from the city reveal what they have planned for Christmas this year and the celebrations that make it so special in the Feature Story.
