Komal Sood, Fashion designerThis sari that I’m wearing is from my new Spring/Summer 2015 collection called Sunset Dreams. It’s pure Chantilly lace, I haven’t touched the fabric at all, although I could’ve done some embellishments on it. It’s a very elegant outfit and perfect for this Diwali, as lace is big this season. expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Aatish Taseer, WriterI like wearing simple, subdued clothes. For Diwali, it would usually be a kurta-pyjama, maybe a light shawl if it’s a bit chilly. If I’m feeling too adventurous, I would go for an achkan. expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Tania Sachdev, Chess PlayerIf I’m in Delhi, I always take time off from playing chess for a few days during Diwali. This Diwali I’ll wear this white chikan kurta designed by her and a friend of hers. My mom also picked up this yellow phulkari dupatta from Chandigarh that goes so well with many different outfits. White and gold is my favourite combination. expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Meiyang Chang, Singer/ActorDuring Diwali, we burn small papers, painted with silver and gold circles, that symbolise money, as fire is holy in Chinese culture as well. It’s nice to wear something colourful and traditional for Diwali as it’s the festival of lights and everything is so bright. expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Raghavendra Rathore, Fashion DesignerI like to dress down – on regular days and even during festivals. I like subtle colours; this rich wine-coloured velvet bandhgala that I’m wearing is perhaps the farthest I’ll go. expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
