I’m Sonal Minocha, and I sell my stuff online, in Paris through a close friend (where she holds exhibitions at home) and at OMO Bandra West. I have recently introduced a new line of clothing called April Fever & Summer (on my Facebook Page Fashions Darling). These clothes are imported from Bangkok, so you have the most trendy and in vogue clothes just a click away at affordable prices!
Fashion icons: J.lo, Eva Mendez, Kim Kardashian and Kareena Kapoor
Favourite designers: Manish Malhotra and Malini Ramani
Personal style: I believe comfort is important, you should have fun with what you wear, experimenting is a must!
Fashion tip: Keep it simple and yet trendy by never overdoing a look and you’ll always get it right.
As a girl (and a shopaholic) I truly believe one should have everything, from different colors jeggings and denims, Indian and western, classy and funky gal-next-door to sexy chica clothes! Chunky as well as delicate jewellery, high heels and flats… trendy bags and ethnic Jholas. Have a bit of it all!
You don’t have to buy very high-end brands, you can buy stuff from boutiques in Bandra (West) and all over Mumbai. I love Mango, Forever New, OVS indusrty, Promod, Outfits etc. They have lovely stuff and if you shop during their sales you can save a lot, everyone can look trendy even within a shoe string budget. I love Bangkok shopping, they are so much ahead in fashion and so I thought why not get their stuff here rather than waiting for the boutiques to get them or travel yourself… so I did!
Have Fun and be a good person, I believe in karma, if you are good inside you’ll look beautiful outside anyway. Like my FB page ‘Fashions Darling‘ and be a Darling and shop till you drop! ;-)
(1) My album in house production is all made by me which you can see in the fusion pics. I love stoles, so I have phulkari stoles which have been made by craftsmen in North India.
(2) The accessories made by me are super super light weight, funky bags, the Bangle Bag is the most famous of them all. I decided to design earrings which caused no ear pain (because I know in Indian weddings and functions girls always suffer) and I succeeded in making them light, even though they look heavy, but are paper weight. I take orders for them, also available in OMO Bandra West.
(3) I love White, it’s my favourite color, the cut sleeves white shirt and hat combo in the pic above is my favourite look! It’s soooo cool and funky and classy at the same time.
(4) Maxi dresses are in and are prefect to beat the heat, so u can see a lot of maxi dresses in my collection. For me it’s very important to buy and sell things that are trendy but wearable. Create your own style Like I did with the stoles and accessories and you will stand out!
(5) Check out the funky belts I made, custom made as per your size, they look fab with skirts and denims. Floral prints are flirty and girly and you’ll never be bored of them, a must have for every girls wardrobe!
