Designer Nishka Lulla to introduce make-up giant Lancôme’s new products
Congratulations on the tie-up with Lancôme beauty. Please discuss your capsule collection and how this venture came about.
My Summer 2014 collection “Flyaway” is a great fit with Lancôme’s foundation Miracle Air De Teint. It is all about being very light on your skin and giving you that wispy feeling. I have chosen organza, sheer and cotton with pastel earthy colours such as ivory, sky blue and sand, which reflect what Miracle Air De Teint is all about.
Celebrations are also in order for having two successful seasons in a row — both critically and commercially. How does it feel to taste success this early?
I believe I have worked very hard to achieve what I have today. I am only half-way through as there is still much more to achieve.

Many in the industry were not kind to you when you launched: they thought you were a designer only because your mother was such a popular designer. Did you ever feel the pressure?
It was a lot of pressure. Being a designer’s daughter, I have to work even harder to create that niche for myself as my style is different from my mother’s. I did have my mother’s glory to fall back on but I needed to create my own label and design sensibilities as I wanted people to recognise my clothes as Nishka Lulla’s and not as Neeta Lulla’s daughter’s.
Much of what you design is also what you, and young girls like you, wear. Is this a deliberate fashion choice or is it just good commerce sense?
My designs always represent my own style and personality, which is comfortable, bohemian and fun.
Where do you see yourself as a designer and a brand in five years?
For now, I am taking each day as it comes. However, I do want to expand my label to foreign shores.
