Divyanka Bedi is a fashionista

Divyanka Bedi, aged 22, the daughter of veteran Bollywood actor Ranjeet & wife Naazneen is a fashionista. Divyanka was recently seen at the Van Heusen India Mens Week with father Ranjeet in New Delhi. Ranjeet was initially worried about Divyanka's career choice. "I guess he was scared as to how he'd help me. No one in my family has ever been in fashion."

Fashion Background
A graduate from Raffles Design Institute, Mumbai, Divyanka registered her label GigiB in 2007, but is yet to launch it formally.

She won the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Installation contest in 2007, followed by the Triumph Inspiration Awards in 2008. In September 2009, she was the second runner-up in the Emerging Designer category at Van Heusen India Mens Week.

Why Fashion?
In her teens, Divyanka "wanted to be everything from an IAS officer, musician to fashion designer." But her love for clothes won.

Future plans?
In November, Divyanka will move to Delhi for an internship, followed by a stint with Van Heusen. "I want to study menswear designing at Central St Martins College of Art & Design in UK or La Chambre Syndicate in Paris. Then I will launch my label."
