Melange truly redefines the paradigm of ethnic wear with a range that appeals to strong, fierce Indian women with a point of view.
What is your personal style sensibility?

Taapsee: Each piece in the collection is beautifully designed, and the colours, cuts and patterns are elegant and modern with a touch of ‘quirk’. What I love about the range is that it the perfect combination of ethnic elements with global trends and offers stylish looks for various occasions. Some of my personal favourites from the collection are floral prints in contemporary silhouettes and dress kurtas which are perfect for work. The collection is innovative and has many unique pieces which can be worn with equal ease.
