I don’t remember exactly when it was that I discovered the work of Nikhil Thampi but it is fair to say that I’ve been crushing on his clothes ever since.

His assortment is versatile and can be worn from traditional occasions to a gala. His clothes are definitely not for the faint of heart. (And for all those of you wondering, the zipper is adjustable and does stay in place. Whew!) Drawing inspiration from his heritage but reinterpreting it to allow functionality, I think it’s easy to see why he has become THE go to designer for the fashion set around the world. 

Since the gown is muted white, I styled it with pearl accessories and a nude pump to blend in with the dress.

Next on my wish list are two looks below.
