We've probably read Passage To India ten times by now, and we're all about the culture, colors, and creations that have us scouring kayak.com for a ticket to the subcontinent. Now, with everyone from Naeem Khan to Freida Pinto representing the continent's flair, Indo-mania is at a fever-pitch. Lucky for you, one of our new go-to spots, the Paramount Hotel, is transforming their Library Bar into a Misha Nicole pop-up shop this afternoon, giving fashionistas fuel to feed their need for the latest in Indian style. The store will serve as a preview to Misha Nicole's fall '10 SoHo concept store—a boutique dedicated to bringing the freshest goods from India's hottest designers to the United States. Think dramatic gowns from Babita Malkani, Payal Singhal's variations on the traditional saris, and Namrata Joshipura's cocktail sheaths—plus find traditional items like scarves and jewelry that will spice up your wardrobe. Get in the take-no-prisoners mode now—you'll only have 5 hours to purchase products. If you're just in a browsing mood, there will be informal modeling, music, nibbles and cocktails. Jai Ho!
Mischa Nicole Pop Up Shop April 16, 2010, 4-9p.m.
