    If there's one thing we believe around here, it's that amazing style extends far beyond our city limits. But why stop there? A major emergence happening in the Indian design scene, thanks to impressive up-and-coming talent with a knack for fusing the country’s colorful history into clothes with a thoroughly modern touch.

    India is already on our must-visit list, thanks to obvious reasons — amazing food, tons of temples to explore, and the chance to dive headfirst into a totally new culture. And now that these fashion movers and shakers have crossed our radar, our wanderlust has officially kicked into high gear. Better grab your passport, because your wardrobe is about to get way more global.

    Whether we’re talking about luxe maxi dresses from Banjanan, handprinted scarves from Anupamaa, or silk-friendship bracelets from Honorine Jewels, the goods from this new crop of Indian designers are available to buy on L-atitude — meaning, you can shop them all without leaving your couch. But if you’d rather scope them out on their home turf, you’re in luck!

    We’ve teamed up with L-atitude and Fathom for a once-in-a-lifetime Indian travel experience, which combines the best parts of the rad travel site—advice, tools, and everything you need for your journey—with our fashion know-how. One reader and a friend will score round-trip airfare on Virgin Airways, swanky accommodations from The Leela Hotels and Resorts, and customized sightseeing in cities, such as Mumbai and Delhi, from Greaves. And to top it all off? A $1,000 shopping spree from L-atitude, so you can stock up on the pieces you see in person. Valued at a whopping $17,000 total, we definitely don’t have to tell you twice that this is an adventure of epic proportions.

    You can enter to win here, but, first, it’s time for some pre-trip research! Get schooled on our five favorite emerging Indian designers after the jump.
