#DesignerSpotlight – Meet Tracy Smith – Founder of Miss Desi Couture

Custom Indian designer

One of my favorite things to do is design my own Indian outfits, inspired by the latest trends and my personal style. For my first Diwali as a newlywed,  I wanted to wear something that reflected the excitement and sentiment of the Indian New Year. Thankfully I found Tracy Smith – founder of Miss Desi Couture –  just at the right time! Tracy believes in traditional South Asian outfits with a modern twist! Together we designed a beautiful lengha with a flowing cape. After sharing the final look, so many of you wanted to learn more about Tracy and her design philosophy. I chatted with Tracy to learn more about what inspires her and what’s next for Miss Desi Couture!

Diwali Style with Miss Desi Couture

‘ Pink Indian Cape Lengha - Miss Desi Couture

//Outfit – Miss Desi Couture //

Happy Diwali! I hope you had a wonderful New Year. My first Diwali as a newlywed was even more special since I was back home in Maryland with my husband and family. My sister, Jiju (brother-in-law), and nephew were in DC for the week. Both my Jiju and husband had conferences in DC so it was the perfect time for the family to get together. We kicked off the week of celebrations with a staycation at The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City. I can’t wait to share my experience with you next week. Friday, we celebrated my nephew’s 5th birthday. Followed by my sister’s baby shower on Saturday. I’ll be sharing all the details from the Garden Themed Baby shower soon! Sunday, we celebrated Diwali as a family with a puja and dinner at home. Lots of Indian sweets, diyas (candles), and fireworks made for a memorable Diwali. For the celebrations, I teamed up with Tracy Smith founder of Miss Desi Couture to design a custom outfit. By now, you all know how much I love the cape trend, especially with Indian wear. Meeting through Instagram, Tracy and I instantly connected with our love for Desi fashion. Together, we designed a beautiful cape lengha for me to wear on Diwali. After sharing the outfit on Snap and Instagram Stories, many of you asked me to share details on how we designed the outfit!
