Indian designers Kulsum Shadab Wahab and Dhruv Kapoor win big in Milan Fashion Week

Posted on February 28 2019

Both Indian designers Kulsum Shadab Wahab and Dhruv Kapoor were able to secure first and second position at the Fashion Hub Market Prize and gave the nation a moment to be very proud of.

The most delightful moment of the Milan Fashion Week was when these two designers brought home not one, but two wins from the fashion capital of the world. Ara Lumiere’s intricate scarves has the social angle as they were made by the acid attack survivors. Perhaps, that’s what lead us to the label’s win.
