Make Shift Shop: April 8-9
Nimish Shah’s prêt label is a favourite among fashion insiders, and this weekend is your chance to see why. Shift by Nimish Shah will be setting up shop temporarily at Sequel in Bandra, Mumbai. Fans of trans-seasonal dressing will fall hard for the label’s off-shoulder summer dresses and breezy tunics.

Little Flea: April 8-9
This year, the much-loved Lil Flea has upped its game adding midnight movies like Bicycle Thieves and Amelie (screened under the stars) and a trade-your-book experiment where readers are encouraged to bring their old books and exchange them for another. The plethora of boutique brands and food stalls abounds, as per usual.
Address: Jio Gardens, Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai
POOL at the Olio Storeys: April 8
Finding a bunch of our favourite indie brands in one place is kinda the Saturday plan of our dreams (if Ryan Gosling was handing out Magnum ice-creams at the event, we’d never leave). Cord, Nimai and Jodi join fashion label Olio at their Lado Sarai outpost in New Delhi, all for the sake of your convenience. Starving souls can feast on goodies from The Mellow Yellow patisserie.
Address: The OLIO Storeys, F 125, Lado Sarai, New Delhi
Le Mill: April 7
From Saint Laurent and Loewe to Rosie Assoulin, Le Mill has taken their exclusive catchment of international designers to Delhi, where you can expect to encounter light, summer pieces ideal for the scorching summer, as well as a few key outerwear pieces for spring. If your style is a little more alternative, fear not: Sacai, Isabel Marant and Peter Pilloto will be retailing too. Le Mill’s in-house stylist will help put together the look you want.
