Great fashion is derived from a fascinating life. A memorable design is what a designer strives for and the creative mind behind the House of Poplyn is just that.

Born in India, a country known for its colourful background and muti-cultural characteristics, Tanushree Pande, the designer and founder of the fashion label, Poplyn, was easily consumed by the fashion world and was inspired by the culture that surrounded her. With the heritage and charm of India instilled in her, Pande moved to South Africa, where she discovered more opportunities and absorbed the bold and beautiful influences.

Finally Pande gathered all that she had seen and settled in Toronto, Canada – a place booming with thirst for fashion and emerging designers. It was the perfect place for the House of Poplyn to become a reality.

Not only is Pande the mind and force behind the brand but she is also an avid illustrator, stylist and fashion writer.

House of Poplyn has seen great success over the years. The brand launched in August 2013 with a 10-piece women’s clothing line. In April 2014, Pande was chosen as one of the designers to participate at Arts & Fashion Week. The S/S 2014 collection called “RAILROAD” inspired by TTC (Toronto Transit Commission), was featured at the show, where the runway was transformed into a TTC subway with great props and music. This collection will be featured throughout this article.

Must-Have Bags in your 20s

Nothing makes an outfit more fashion forward than great shoes and an even better purse. As you transition into the next big chapter of your life, your fashion choices will change. These top five purses are essential pieces every girl in her twenty’s should have in her closet!

Busniess Birkin

Your early twenty’s means you’ve finally finished school and are entering the business world and nothing says businesswoman better than a Hermés Birkin. Classy, structured and durable for those commutes to the city, this purse will make a statement and go great with any outfit. Although most people opt-out for a colourful Birkin, I’d stick to a more neutral colour, like brown, beige, black or white. Don’t worry, you’re only twenty-something, the next one you buy can be any colour you desire!

Everyday Tote

So you’re in a hurry on a Saturday morning running all the errands you skipped out on during the week and you don’t need a purse with a lot of zippers and pockets slowing you down. An everyday tote is a must-have for all your busy days. The open concept and simplicity will make it easy to find everything you need without ruining that fresh manicure.

Classy Clutch

The greatest thing about being in your twenty’s is the freedom without the heavy load of responsibility! It’s a time to have fun with your closest girlfriends and go on a lot of dates until you find “the one” (if that still exists). Nonetheless, you will always need a simple, yet classic clutch and what’s more chic than Chanel?
