Priyadarshini Rao at the Atosa Festive Preview


With half the Stylista team attending back-to-back shows at WIFW in Delhi, the rest of us decided to have some fashionable fun, too. We made our way to multi-designer haven, Atosa for their Festive Preview. Tucked away in a quiet little lane in the suburb of Bandra, the store played host to a few handpicked celebrities, designers and fashion enthusiasts as they mulled about sipping sangria and chatting about style in the season to come.


Stylista designer, Priyadarshini Rao showcased her new collection, ‘ Caravan Serai’ inspired by parts of Asia, North Africa, Europe and the Silk Route over 300 years ago. We were blown away by her colourful collection of billowy skirts, maxi dresses and wide leg pants that effortlessly encompassed the best elements of the east and the west.

Priya Collection

A particularly big fan of the designer is Atosa co-owner and hostess of the evening, Aparna Badlani who was a sight for sore eyes in a blue Priyadarshini Rao maxi dress, offset by curls we’d kill for!

Nitya and Nimish

We spent the rest of the evening making mental shopping lists and chatting animatedly away with our hostesses, jewellery designer Nitya Arora and the lovely Nimish from Shift. Overall, the perfect way to bring in the weekend, don’t you think?
