The 2018 luxe List

Dear Readers,

Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Luxury is the income tax for vanity. But it is so pleasant.” We couldn’t agree more! Enjoy wearing that exquisite designer outfit you always dreamt of owning or travelling in that luxurious yacht that you only saw in movies? We all want to own the best of things and experience excellence in every form, but only a few get to, that’s what luxury is all about! As we do every year, we’ve put together our Luxe List for 2018 which includes the best of the best in fashion, jewellery, real estate, jets and yachts, restaurants, and automobiles. This one’s definitely worth a look!

Her label, A Humming Way, oozes high-end fashion and is a result of the identification of a lack of craftsmanship in mainstream clothing.

Turn to Grand Getaways to read about her explorations.

We all know that a healthy diet and a good exercise plan is ideal to stay fit. Stop over at Mind & Body where we explain the objectives of a holistic diet.

Lastly, be ready to get amazed by the grandeur in our Wedding Moments sections wherein we feature top businessman GVK Reddy’s grandaughter and fashion designer Shriya Bhupal’s wedding to race car driver Anindith Reddy. We also have politician and businessman T. Subbarami Reddy’s grandson, Anirudh Reddy’s wedding to Neha. Needless to say, they were both the true examples of Big Fat Indian Weddings.
