She is a successful producer, entrepreneur, interior designer, mother and above everything else, is the wife of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Despite juggling between so many career roles, she makes it a point to take time out for her family.

Gauri Khan shared creating a balance between work and family life is important. “Although I have a busy work schedule, I make sure I spend time with my family and create a balance between my work and family life,” she said.

Apart from her several professional endeavours, Gauri is associated with various brands and is even the co-founder of Shah Rukh’s production company, Red Chillies Entertainment.

The two married in 1991 and have a son named Aryan and a daughter named Suhana. The couple welcomed its third child AbRam, through a surrogate mother in 2013.

Gauri has also made some brief appearances on camera, but she asserted that she is “currently focusing on my future as an interior designer and not as an actor”.

She might be the wife of India’s biggest star but her claim to fame is not her marital status. Gauri has established herself as an interior designer as well as fashion designer.

Asked if she ever considers writing a book about her whole journey, she dismissed the idea. “Nothing as such on the journey but currently I am coming up with a coffee-table book on designs, in collaboration with renowned builders,” she said.

On the other hand, Shah Rukh recently tweeted about co-star Anuskha Sharma wrapping up the schedule for their upcoming film directed by Imtiaz Ali. “Anushka Sharma wrapped the schedule of film allegedly called The Ring. Will miss her lots … kya karein … Aye Dil Hai Mushkil. Thanks for being you.”

The Ring marks Shah Rukh’s first collaboration with the Jab We Metdirector. This is the third time Anushka and Shah Rukh will be seen in a film together after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.Read more at: |



The ever so talented designer, Henry Picado, made his way into fashion in a particularly unlikely manner.

“I was 7 years old and it happened with my grandmother," Picado said. "We were walking along a street in Costa Rica and she simply stopped in front of a shop window and looked at one of the dresses on display.”

He described this experience as having marked him because it was the first time he had seen someone create something. His grandmother had been able to reproduce a replica of that dress with only a pair of scissors, a sewing machine and some fabric.

“From then on, I knew I wanted to become a fashion designer," Picado said.

After working for several years under major fashion brands, Picado thought he had gained enough expertise and courage to establish his own fashion brand: ESTE & CHLO.

"I dressed models with other people’s designs, but I always felt like I deserved more," Picado said.

He said that some of the major struggles he faced as a designer were “lies and hypocrisy."

Although he is a house-hold name for A-list celebrities, Picado remains very humble and never forgets where he came from.

“I came to America with a $150 in my pockets and a big dream and here I am," Picado said.See more at:

He said that the fashion world is ferocious and there are often people and friends trying to bring him down, yet he insists that he gets the support and love he needs from the women in his life.

“My wife, my daughter, my grandmother—these women mean the world to me and that is why I find pleasure in creating clothing for women," Picado said. "They are such an important part of my life.”

ESTE & CHLO has had runways in major fashion capitals like Paris, Milan and New York. The designer’s appearance at the TFW will be his very first in Tucson.

“I am very excited to finally arrive in Tucson and see how the whole show turns out," Picado said. "I am honored to have been invited by the organizers to display my collection and hope the audience is pleased as I am with it.”



Narciso Rodriguez in the studio.

The exhibition, on view Oct. 16 through Jan. 8, features more than 35 couture designs presented alongside works of art in the museum’s Grand Galleries. Visitors will experience the history-making fashions next to works by major artists, including Carmen Herrera, Donald Judd, Jennifer Steinkamp, Lygia Clark, Mira Schendel, Antonio Llorens and Elena Asins .

This is the first time a major museum presents an exhibition by a living fashion designer during Miami’s Art Basel Week. “I am honored to be asked to be part of the celebrated history of exhibitions presented by the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University, and particularly excited to do so during Art Basel Season in Miami,” Narciso Rodriguez said.

The exhibition is co-curated byELLE Magazine’s creative director Alex Gonzalez, and the Frost Art Museum’s curator Klaudio Rodriguez. The museum is partnering with ELLE on both the exhibition and the private reception/fundraiser the evening before the public opening.

“The strength of our inaugural couture exhibition is our emphasis on Narciso Rodriguez’s internationally renowned artistry and creative process,” said Jordana Pomeroy, the museum’s director. “Like a master sculptor or painter, he finds inspiration in the world around him to create an artistic continuum of ideas that are the underpinning of his life’s work.

“As a first-generation immigrant who impacts our contemporary culture globally, Narciso personifies the creative aspirations of today’s artistic influencers who are propelling the artistry and designs of this new century. Alongside our guest curator Alex Gonzalez, creative director at ELLE Magazine, these two powerhouses will present a cultural milestone that will inspire and resonate strongly with the international communities here in Miami, at Florida International University, and visiting for Art Basel 2016,” Pomeroy added.
