#DesignerSpotlight – Sachin & Babi

Sociala and Style Sachin and Babi for Anthropologie 115

One of my favorite things is discovering new South Asian designers with a style philosophy that I believe in. Thankfully, Anthropologie is the perfect place to find such designers. Browsing through the sales section at the F Street Anthro in Washington D.C., I found this green midi dress with embroidered flowers that fit perfectly. When I looked at the label, I was intrigued to learn more about the brand. I’m excited to have found the husband and wife duo behind Sachin & Babi and Noir Sachin & Babi. Over the last two decades, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have been developing embroidery and appliqué concepts. Sachin and Babi are known for their contemporary and evening wear that expresses their modern creativity and South Asian heritage.

I decided to wear the dress for a friend’s birthday brunch at Michel Richard’s whimsical french restaurant – Central. Even though it was an unusually warm Sunday morning, I felt comfortable in the breezy dress that moved with the summer wind. I borrowed my mom’s Chanel purse and paired the dress with my go-to Michael Kors black pumps. To add a bit of glam, I added statement earnings and kept the rest of the look fuss-free. I’m looking forward to seeing Sachin & Babi’s latest collection for New York Fashion Week this week!

Also – I’m heading to India for my wedding shopping at the end of September. I would love suggestions on where to shop in Delhi or  Ludhiana. I can’t wait to share my trip with you on Instagram and Snapchat (user name: SocialandStyle)!
