BAG IT! with Pragya Gupta

For Patola at Lakme Fashion Week
Pragya's creation for Patola at Lakme Fashion Week
Young, vibrant, quirky, these are few of the adjectives that came in my mind when I saw the collection of BAGS designed by PRAGYA GUPTA.

After working as a senior Product Designer at Hidesign and developing a range of handbags for the designer brand Patola for the Lakme Fashion Week, this Graduate in Leather Design from NIFT, Kolkata is all set to start her own label in Lucknow. 

Here are the excerpt, of the Q & A session I had with her:

1. What does a BAG means to you? 
A bag, to me, is more than just an accessory. It says so much about a woman's personality...her priorities, her taste & her quirks! It is like a little part of her home or work that she carries with herself when she is out.

2. What are the things one should keep in mind buying a leather bag? 
Besides the aesthetic value of the bag, one must define the purpose a bag would solve- where and when can you carry it, how much can you carry in it & how comfortably you can carry it. Price is always a consideration when one is buying a leather bag, but one must remember that this one higher priced leather bag is likely to outlast two or more of the less expensive options. It is a sort of an investment.

3. Who is your favourite designer?  
I absolutely love the quirkiness and experimental style of Moschino-Cheap & Chic and Marc Jacobs. I also love Hidesign for its timeless elegant styling.

4. 5 things you always carry in your bag/purse.  
A diary, a stationery pouch, a pack of tissues, lip balm and my wallet are just few of the things that I never leave without in my bag.

5. 10 years down the lane where do you see yourself. 
I see myself as a happy person with a great career & of course a beautiful family. The brand I am working on with my Uncle, Ajit Gupta, would be well settled and one of the biggest names in the Indian accessory segment. :)

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
