Fashionably Forward From The South – Shilpa Reddy & Swathi Nimmagadda

This mutli-talented designer happens to also be an influential socialite of Hyderabad who is actively associated with charity work. When it comes to her designer side, she’s brought many laurels to make Hyderabad proud. Shilpa is the only Indian designer to showcase her collection at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Swathi Nimmagadda has been my true muse. She’s like my baby sister and is the daughter of Nimmagadda Prasad, our dearest family friend. She owns the styles we have designed and carries all the outfits with utmost ease and confidence,” says Shilpa.

On a different note, she thinks Neha Dhupia, Sonam Kapoor and Shruthi Hasaan make for interesting muses.

Has her look been inspired by something specific?

The outfits are from her collections Moonlit Sand from LFW 2015 and Paris show 2014, and were chosen according to Swathi’s personality, height and her beautiful golden wheatish complexion and her big bright smile that inspires Shilpa.

The Indo western look is an elegant matkha skirt with an embroidered blouse and a fully embellished jacket.The second look is a majestic floor length black matkha gown with baroque embroidery.
