His name may not ring a bell but his designs have most certainly been kicking up a fuss both on and off the ramp. Wearable, edgy and packed with oomph, Nikhil Thampi’s eponymous label is less than three years old but has already garnered a client-list that boasts of Bollywood’s fashion divas.

The 27-year-old’s all-time favourite muse is actress Anushka Sharma and period films, and having provided some outfits for Bombay Velvet, Nikhil has managed both in one go. “She is a dream to dress. She gets it. She blew me away when once at a show, I was going berserk and she held my shoulders and calmly said everything would be alright.” Besides her, he loves dolling up everybody’s fashion favourite Sonam Kapoor and sister Rhea. “They are so easy to work with and they always surprise you,” he says. However, his ultimate dream woman to dress he says is “the right mix of Vidya Balan and Sushmita Sen”.
