If you are one to pick an authentic travel experience over room service, you probably are familiar with Airbnb—the startup that revolutionised travel. Brian Chesky’s brainchild has evolved from just offering homestays to shorter experiences varying from learning philosophy in the Latin Quarter of Paris to their newest—experiencing the savoir faire of couture with Shantanu & Nikhil.

The curated session with Shantanu & Nikhil is the first of its kind in India and will be offered in New Delhi. The USP: travellers will get an insider’s perspective on how the designer label arrives at the final garment that is seen on the runway. “This is not just about seeing our atelier but also an emotional journey with our craftsmen and drapers. Those participating will also work on a small piece of embroidery for keepsakes,” said Shantanu Mehra. The experience also includes a thali lunch with the designers.

New Delhi is the eight city to be a part of this vertical. The announcement took place last night in New Delhi, where Sonam Kapoor was also present.
