There’s no denying the art in fashion, but because we’re so focussed on eating, we tend to miss the art in food. Both take skill, passion, and a penchant for aesthetics. So what better way to honour them both, than by bringing them together. We got leading chefs from Delhi, gave them free reign on Ogaan.com, and trusted their fine taste to make summer sartorial choices. Since style is impossible to replicate, we decided to get in on their stories instead.

Here we have it, 3 ladies, one website and a whole lot of great taste. Pun intended.

What she’s wearing: Raw Mango’s Rani and Yellow Jhilmil Sari accessorized with Neelam Naranag’s Delicate Trikon Earrings.

Hidden gem in Delhi that’s in her Little Black Book: Lal Behari Tandon in Palika Bazaar {also in Aurobindo Market}, costume jewellery shopping in Lajpat Nagar, and as a slightly more high-street pick, Kardo in Shahpur Jat for a well-tailored shirt.

On her Personal Style: “I like being feminine, masculine, elegant, happy, casual, delicate and strong. I want what I wear to be what I am inside, and hence the changes in styles. The only outfit where I always feel good and where I feel like myself are saris.”
