Mitali says, “I did my undergrad in Psychology and started my career doing HR. The world of fashion just fascinated me and I went onto work as a buyer with a major E-commerce player with absolutely no experience of what that would entail. Being surrounded by private Indian labels and homegrown brands made me want to start my own label. The rest like they say, is history.
We got into this 4.5 years ago when exhibitions were still at a nascent stage. There were two other major players who were catering to a completely different audience and there was no variety of categories. The focus was all on heavy, traditional indianwear. There was absolutely no concept of selecting what was going to be displayed at the events, it was simply based on whoever was willing to pay & participate. I started my label over 5 years ago and participated at one of these events. Thats when the idea struck that there had to be a better way of doing this. A platform where we could bring together like minded customers & exhibitors. We started with a small event of 6 designers, mostly all friends & relatives to test out the market. I still remember it being a a really humid day in May but that didn’t stop our amazing ladies from coming out in huge numbers.
Luckily for us, we get to see a varied amount of merchandise, some amazing work and we’re lucky to work with some super creative people. I look after the Operational part of things, so there’s a lot of planning involved. From picking on cities we would like to exhibit in, layout of our events, choosing brands we’d like to have on board, to decor, to simply ensuring the smooth functioning of our events.
My Work Wardrobe
Since I don’t have a typical 9 to 5 job, my work wardrobe is fun, fresh and typically a mix of stuff depending on my mood that day! Something I recently bought is a classic white shirt with fun graphics embroidered on them from a new brand called Sarto, its perfect for a meeting yet makes you stand out! Uni Qlo has some amazing pants for work, super comfortable and they look good too. Summer & winter essentials are picked up from Zara, H&M and of course the fast growing Chinese websites. Apart from that, I tend to wear a lot of stuff from my own label.
MONDAY – Green Stretch Suede Pant Suit from my label Mitali Wadhwa and Wooden clutch from Duet Luxury
TUESDAY – Embroidered Dress by Sneha Soni
WEDNESDAY – Cotton Red pant suit from my label Mitali Wadhwa and Clutch from Chanel
THURSDAY – Stretch fitted pants with a off shoulder coat from my label Mitali Wadhwa
FRIDAY – Blazer dress with lace sleeve detailing from my label Mitali Wadhwa
My Skincare Regime
My skin is super sensitive & oily which is why I keep my morning skincare routine very simple. I absolutely swear by a home remedy of Apple cider vinegar and water. It works as a toner & a super face cleanser. Just before stepping out of the house is a good amount of Sunblock. I use a Kama Ayurveda sunblock, its coverage is good and absorbs easily.
Night skin care routine involves cleaning my face with the Apple cider vinegar mix followed by application of a thin layer of Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate. It makes my face look relaxed the next morning! I feel the simpler you keep your skin care routine, the better it is. I’ve seen my mum not use too many things and her skin looks fab!
Once a week I use a home made face pack made with honey, gram-flour, yogurt & turmeric. Its super refreshing and helps your skin glow! If I’m feeling lazy, I just use a face mask from Nykaa. That too helps in relaxing the skin!”
