Deepa Sood Cuff wearable technology jewelry Elle Elle.com interview google glass diane von furstenberg security notifications designer

While it can be said without a trace of doubt that Google Glass and Samsung Galaxy Gear are changing the future of how individuals can adopt technology into their daily wardrobe, it’s still unclear how willingly people will sport their gadgets knowing they’re due for a handful of quizzical looks. Even the celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg, who incorporated the futuristic Google Glass devices into her Spring 2013 collection showcase, could do little to make Google Glass truly trendy.

Learning from the flaws of such well-known devices, designer Deepa Sood created a line of jewelry called Cuff, which apart from looking beautiful, boasts functionalities for notifications, security and fitness tracking. Joining hands with her software developer husband, Sood created designs that are fashionable yet ahead of the curve. As she so rightly said in her interview with Elle.com, “Why choose between smart and beautiful?”

Divia Thani Daswani editor conde nast itraveller india interview travel insider's guide digital new website former vogue india features editor exclusive interview moxie media sonal beria relaunched website travel guides rahul khanna tourism

Sitting across from the young and spirited Editor of one of India’s most respected magazines, one would never know that Condé Nast Traveller India’s Divia Thani Daswani is jetlagged after flying into Bombay from Moscow the night before. Back in the office bright, early and fully charged, founding Editor Daswani has been appointed the colossal task of building the Condé Nast Traveler brand in India and hence, has had countless mornings like these. Undaunted by deadlines, redeye flights and questionable hotel rooms, it’s no surprise that in four short years, Daswani has established the travel tome as a respectable industry authority and an exhilarating, unmissable read.

The fact that Daswani has so swiftly and expertly carved a niche for herself and the magazine in such a short span of time is in no small part thanks to her pioneering mother, one of the city’s first female stockbrockers. Standing out in heels and a pantsuit while sitting in a sea of men, Daswani vividly remembers her mother waiting to attend parent-teacher meetings at school during the timeslot reserved for working fathers. What caused embarrassment as a child transformed into inspiration as a young woman, a scene that left an indelible mark on Condé Nast Traveller India’s Editor and helped her thrive in an industry dominated so deeply by men.
