Presenting the schedule for the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013
When I saw Anand Bhushan’s “Junkyard” show at The Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW2012 by FDCI, I knew I would definitely be doing a feature on it! With crazy creativity like that its hard to tell what must be going on in that mind of his…but he agreed! Apart from picking up a gorgeous and ‘heavy-duty’ jacket from his ‘Junkyard’ collection, I also picked up a very different, light and delicate tunic from one of his previous collections as well. It was too pretty to pass.
It was by chance that I got to know Dhruv Kapur , at the recently concluded Delhi Couture Week, where he (very boldly might I add) and his sister wore solid white dresses from his label DRVV, his being backless. I was instantly drawn. So I went up to him, explained what I did, asked him if he was interested…and the rest is history.
Presenting #Stylaned featuring DRVV by Dhruv Kapur – Collection ‘HOWARD‘
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.
Introducing #stylaned as a regular feature on the blog. In collaboration with @naina
As our very first feature we bring to you Priyal Prakash House of Design and a drop dead gorgeous gown from her collection. But who says it should be limited only for the evenings? With a fabulous open-back and sultry gold detailing on the sleeves and bust it really does take sexy to the next level. When you have a beautiful gown like this you MUST NOT clutter the look. It will only downplay the beauty of the gown. Let the gown shine in all its singularity and play with just one set of accessories to accent the look.
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.
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.
So I had just joined Klout very recently that they told me I was eligible for one of their perks! Getting 50 business cards for myself from MOO! Awesome news! The very same day I claimed the perk, uploaded about 30 photographs that I wanted to be printed at the back of the cards, gave my information, paid for the shipment charges and voila! I was set!
