As Carma celebrates the silver milestone, Malvika Poddar hosted the launch of Carma at Mehrauli that has been re-imagined and re-invented to showcase her vision for an Indian couture experience on 7th September 2016.

Says Malvika Poddar, “Carma has been a landmark destination store. Today it portrays and captures the generation shift. The curation from design to the selection of fashion has been an exciting journey for me – from materials used in the store design to the artisan repertoire reflected in the fashion labels, there is great versatility. The Carma legacy moves forward with re-invention and imagination.”
