Comfortable chic may seem anach-ronistic, but for fashion icon, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, style is as personal as fashion is freedom— to be creative, individualistic and fearless. From her hometown in Mumbai to Hollywood central, Los Angeles (LA), she explores the basics of how to be fashion forward even when travelling, the best places to shop in LA and must-visit venues for the hip and trendy.
If Bollywood's fashion dictates make Mumbai famous, does Los Angeles hold sway over style as a city as well?
And if so, how? Absolutely. Apart from being home to the two biggest entertainment industries in the world, fabulous and distinctive fashion is a common thread that connects Mumbai and Los Angeles Much like the city itself, the fashion scene in LA is unique, creative and fearless when it comes to innovation. It allows you the freedom to express yourself in a way that is completely 'you'. That is an important attribute for me because I believe style is personal, and should make you stand out, not fit in. From making a statement for change with the black-themed attire at the Golden Globes last year, seeing big brands relocate to LA for major fashion shows and being the home to some of the world’s best vintage shops, to incubating budding designers and birthing kick-ass street fashion, I have witnessed this city celebrate fashion in all its forms.
