India Couture Week 2014

India Couture Week 2014

So I'm probably the last person writing about India Couture Week 2014 and it took me while to do this mainly because I had other posts scheduled. I really really wish the fashion timetable in India was more streamlined. It just feels so chaotic with the sponsor names and dates. I also wish there was a nice centralized website where I can get all the latest info. Sort of like WWD or Style.com for Indian Fashion. Recently, I did find fashionfad.in which has a nice archive of all designers and good photos. Vogue.in…Read more
Delhi Couture Week 2013 : Anju Modi, Masaba for Satya Paul and Monisha Jaising

Delhi Couture Week 2013 : Anju Modi, Masaba for Satya Paul and Monisha Jaising

As Delhi Couture Week progressed, we saw amazing collections from Anju Modi, Masaba and Monisha Jaising. Anju Modi I loved the story and inspiration of Draupadi behind this. There's always an interesting way to style up a red lehenga and we had plenty of that in this collection. I loved the neckline and the tie up on top.   Masaba for Satya Paul I love how Masaba plays with prints, it's large and subtle at the same time. I loved the large lime green dress.   Monisha Jaising     Image Credit :…Read more

Delhi Couture Week 2013 : Sabyasachi, Anamika Khanna and Varun Bahl

Delhi Couture Week was right after IBFW and just as fabulous. I digress but on Monday I had my lower wisdom tooth removed... it's been like hell. I have to take so many medicines and I'm constantly falling asleep. Wasted two complete days doing absolutely nothing. I've had my upper wisdom teeth removed before and it was nowhere as bad as this! :/ I hope none of you are plagued with dental work, it's the absolute worst. So, anyway... moving on, here's Sabyasachi, Anamika Khanna and Varun Bahl!   Sabyasachi This collection is…Read more

IBFW 2013 : Adarsh Gill, Suneet Verma and Ashima Leena

So this will be the final post on Indian Bridal Fashion Week 2013 but there will be more couture with the Delhi Couture Week! There's Adarh Gill, Suneet Verma and Ashima Leena.   Adarsh Gill You could say the styling seemed a bit retro but the clothes definitely weren't and I saw a disconnect. What started out with intricate black and gold pieces, ventured into jewel tones and corals. I love the details and the simple silhouettes though.   Suneet Verma I read that this was Game of Thrones meeting Rome, I'm not…Read more

I like the sleek gown with the heavy embroidery on top and a tapered coral bottom. Gold and draped silhouettes also look…Read more

Indian Bridal Fashion Week 2013 was last month but I'm just catching up with all the couture! All the clothes are to die for and each has it's unique inspiration.   Rohit Bal Rohit Bal's collection is inpired by Elizabethan silhouettes with all the work and craftsmanship of the ethnic aesthetic.
