Being my first ever #BeerTasting session, there is only one way this day could have gone – Downright awesome! Cannot thank The Beer Café…
Get your creative caps on lovely people! I have a contest for you. After ages I know!! I will keep it short and simple….
Being the opening designer for The Delhi Couture Week, Anju Modi did a fabulous job. Staying true to her magic of layers in her…
“Retail activism” is taken to new heights at Sahachari Foundation’s Design One (DO) exhibitions, which activate social change through the shopping experience. The motivation behind the initiative is to raise funds for deserving NGOs and recognize the extraordinary creativity of talented designers.
I know this post has been a bit delayed but nonetheless, I had to write about it because I had all these fabulous photographs lying with me. Couldn’t let them go to waste! Following are images from Nandita Mahtani’s show at the recently concluded Delhi leg of the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2012.
It was a very specific evening/cocktails dressy collection with the scales tipping slightly towards bling but it never looked in-you-face garish. Elegantly done.
Their Spring/Summer 2013 collection ‘ZIP’, inspired by the works of Barnett Newman was fresh, vibrant and just the right doses of classy and sexy! A treat for New Delhi since this was their first time showing at Wills India Fashion Week.
The big pops of color-blocked cherry red and aquamarine were so exciting!
If you have seen the recent #Stylaned feature on Label Ritu Kumar, you would also be knowing that the collection used in it is part of her latest Spring/Summer 2013 collections which was showcased as part of the Grand Finale in the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.
When you have such a specific theme/inspiration for a collection it can get a bit intimidating and the theme can easily dominate over your true sensibilities. However it was such a pleasure to see Atsu incorporate the ‘North – Eastern’ sensibilities with such ease into his collection.
It was a treat of gorgeous ‘chikankari’ embroideries on the garments at the Manish Malhotra show. The colors for the womenswear were to die for too! I really wish he would have taken a chance with some bolder colors in his menswear pieces though. I especially loved how he had used special ‘chikankari’ borders on some of his dupattas. Very delicate and fine craftsmanship from the girls at the Mijwan NGO, which was another wonderful cause that was being supported.
What do you do most Monday evenings? Get back from office, go home, watch some television, the gym maybe or hang with friends at the pub? Here is a different idea – how about you go to Pragati Maidan, to the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, watch a ‘live’ fashion show, witness the happennings of the fashion industry first hand, have a few drinks and have a blast maybe?!
We are giving away one pass to the Alpana Neeraj & Rishta by Arjun show on the 8th of October, 2012 at 5:45pm.
Fiama recently held a ‘Fabulous Hair Event’ with hair expert Sapna Bhavnani, whose website you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO see for yourself! They showcased 6 unique and trendy hairstyles on some lovely ladies including designer Ranna Gill, Vidushi Mehra (wife of designer Nikhil Mehra), Ambika Anand, etc. All the hairstyles were classy, practical and complimentary to any glam occassion.
But first a quickie Outfit Post followed by a few pics from the event!
The heat seems to be slowly ebbing so I decided it wouldn’t hurt to wear a mildly heavy shirt – a slightly old pick but still very much loved due to its sheer energy and vibrance – my ‘ZARA Scarf Print Shirt’.
Presenting the schedule for the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013
Manish Arora knows how to put up a show and boy does he know it right! And since he was showing in the Capital after a gap of over three years it was literally a high octane, full power blast of a show. Energy was ripping through everyone! While I have very few words to express my sheer enthusiasm I do have a truckload of photographs from the show. It wasn’t easy trying to pick out the few that got to come up on the blog. Nevertheless, here they are.
This year, Anju Modi presents her collection DEVI. The collection takes inspiration from some of the most vivid characters inked throughout the Bengali literature and those that have been cinematically brought to life.
Like always her garments were so much more than just garments, art, stories infact. Layers upon layers of intricacy so thoughtfully brought together. One look and you know that not just anybody is capable of such craftsmanship. Anju Modi’s shows always leave me in complete awe and love with her.
When you know its JJ Vallaya, you know its going to be EXTRAVAGANT. Actually in this case collections by ALL the designers will be extravagant, it being ‘Couture Week’ and what not. But still, JJ Vallaya was one show I was really looking forward to. And it delivered…maybe a little too much, but thats what couture is all about. Crazy amount of detailing on traditional Indian silhouettes – lehengas, sherwanis, anarkalis and just a bit of unwanted experimentation with the traditional silhouettes which could have been avoidede. Nevertheless, here are glimpses from the show.
Usually my Wednesday nights are a lot more silent and sober compared to this one! It was the official launch of Euphoric Magazine – India’s biggest for clubbing and dance music at Blue Frog, New Delhi. The icing on the cake was ofcourse DJ Dale Anderson spinning some crazy stuff for al the guests. And the guests were p-l-e-n-t-y and pretty too! It is NOT that easy to spot so many good-looking, well dressed people under one roof in Delhi on a Wednesday night
The PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012 which will be held from August 8 – 12, 2012 at The Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi has recently announced that in order to bring out the ‘Indian’ element of the Couture Week, FDCI has made a conscious choice to showcase most of the collections through top Indian models. Out of the 32 high profile models who are ready to scorch the ramp this season, 25 are Indian models and the remaining are of foreign origin.
