Fresh talent is the buzzword at both the Lakme and Wills fashion weeks this year, where special attention is being showered on promising new people. We asked our jury to do the same and Surily Goel was the popular choice. Surily makes spunky western clothes. Her clients include Gauri Khan and Malaika Arora. She dressed up Preity Zinta in Salaam Namaste. Varun Bahl and Shantanu Goenka were the big finds at last year’s India Fashion Week.
