Khosla will unveil a Spring-Summer collection called Malmal Tadka at the fashion week. The collection, as Khosla explains, is an Indian “fusion festive” collection and is an ode to pure Indian textiles like Khadi, cotton, cotton slub, Chanderi, cotton silk, tulle, handloom and silk in cohesion with malmal. According to the designer, she aims to present a modern interpretation of a vintage aesthetic, while preserving the innate Indian taste. Khosla believes in mixing eastern fashion culture with elements from the West to serve a truly unique “tadka” of style for modern women. Her approach to fashion also allows her to support Indian artisans and promote the use of Indian fabrics.
