Suman Nathwani's focus on designer lingerie and innerwear makes her one of an elite designer coterie who has given sleepwear the status of essential fashion. Based in Calcutta, Suman also offers vital confidence-building consultancy to women on correct selection of lingerie, the right sizing and a better boudoir life through well chosen apparel. It is a mood centric which resolves around the philosophy of relaxation and rejuvination.
DESIGNER OF DREAMS
Suman Nathwani's lingerie line is the stuff that dreams are made of. While external couture normally takes centrestage at most ramp shows, the boudoir creations from Suman Nathwani's atelier have been instrumental in shaking off women's mindsets and look inwards. To focus on the excitements of innerwear.
There is plenty of stuff for any woman wanting to be as aptly dressed in the boudoir and in lounging around the home, as in her party wear. The innovations are based on comfort, style, elegance and acceptability in the colours chosen and the material used. We only need to go back to Suman's beginnings-a cousin's wedding where she did not find any interesting lingerie, which spurred her on to creating innerwear that the bride herself and the whole family too, loved.
The first to introduce bridal night wear for both men and women, Suman has worked on whole wardrobes for honeymooners. Satins, crepes, silks, laces, lurex are used in various ways to give the wearer a choice of sensuous and wearable lingerie.
Having also entered the European market with her brand "Lingerie", Suman's 18-year efforts are creativity in this largely untapped slot should pay rich dividends.
Suman's collections are available at Suman Nathwani-her signature store, La Lingerie in Kolkata, La Lingerie in GK 1, Hauz Khas in New Delhi and at Amarson's, Babybell, and Sheetal in Mumbai, apart from all the Shoppers' Stop outlets throughout India.
