Fashion in India gets a jolt of new-age and quirky elegance, an element of daring originality, thanks to Nikhil Thampi. He is one of those designers who makes his statement loud and clear. When your destiny calls for you, nothing can chain you up be it a degree in psychology or family business. Nothing can suffice a soul of an artist, a designer. In case of Thampi, an evident push and encouragement from family and friends set him to his destined path. Allude to his designs, they are marked by their neat and figure flattering silhouettes with cut outs at the waist. His designs portray a vivacious, free spirit and intrepid soul of today. It’s the wearability rather than the outlandish creativity which rules the spirit of his label. Debuting with the collection ‘That Is How I Feel’ in the Fall/Winter 2011, his collections are a visual translation of his ‘bold is beautiful’ philosophy. Be it frisking with electric hues like maroon, red or blue or centering around black, white and coral monotones, with a tinge of gold, his collection can make you feel and look like a freaking Greek goddess. The brand has been recognized by Forbes Magazine under the celebrated ’30 under 30’ list, 2015. He is also the recipient of the ‘Grazia Young Fashion Award’ 2014 and recently, the designer has won the ‘HT Most Stylish Award 2017’.
The Fashion fedora of Nikhil Thampi is beyond prêt and cocktail couture with Bollywood’s best, including names such as Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha and Shilpa Shetty, regularly donning his creations for red carpet appearances, gaining traction and a fan following hasn’t been all too hard for Thampi.
In the future, the brand envisions starting a store, foraying into international markets, exhibiting around the globe and doing more Luxury collaborations.
This TFT 3.0, this experimental magician will showcase a never-seen-or-done-before collection. An amalgamation of Tech and Fashion. A future.
