ARCHANA RAO, YOGESH CHAUDHARY AND KARISHMA SAHANI KHAN AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014.



ARCHANA RAO, YOGESH CHAUDHARY AND KARISHMA SAHANI KHAN CREATED MAGIC ON THE RAMP WITH THEIR STUNNING COLLECTIONS AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014.

ARCHANA RAO BROUGHT BACK THE AESTHECITY OF TEA AT LAKME FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014

Archana Rao’s label “Frou Frou” collectively brought out the tradition behind the most common Japanese beverage - tea. During the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, the brilliant designer once again managed to dazzle with her new collection, “Teaism” based on the culture of Japan.
She brought back the feel of a relatable collection with just the right touch of quirkiness that could make anyone nostalgic. 



The highlight however was how she brilliantly managed to add the slightest details from the tea experience like the doilies and the vintage china sets in majority of her garments.
Archana added to a subtle colour palette, hues like dull yellow, blush pink, hints of teal, dark blue and the classic black and white stripes. Newspaper print detailing was an added highlight that brought out the materials like the transparent capes, barely opaque shirts and the floral appliqués. 



The highlight of the collection was a striped body-con dress with a sheer pink flowing cape with delicate flower appliqués and a dark blue button-down maxi with quarter sleeves ideal for semi formal wear.
Venturing into the popular handmade techniques forged into the classic porcelain shapes, Archana Rao’s label “Frou Frou” married the past and the present, keeping her love for vintage alive for this unconventional collection of women’s wear.

YOGESH CHAUDHARY BROUGHT OUT THE POWER OF THE WOMAN AT LAKME FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014

Yogesh Chaudhary’s label “Surendri” dazzled again with an ego boosting collection based on the movie “Chandrawal” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. He captured the essence of the fairer sex in his collection by bringing out the indomitable spirit of the working women.
The collection was also a celebration of the love that blooms amidst a Haryanvi summer. Incorporating the prime motif of a Sunflower, the main sight at a harvest, he brought out a sharp looking line up of corporate dressing made for the working divas.


The main materials were suiting fabrics and deconstruction of the traditional white shirt. The underlying ideology of the transition of day wear to night wear was clear in the line-up as he seamlessly merged the knitwear into traditional Indian wear.
Red, mint greens, orange and tie and dye detailing made the collection effortlessly striking. Materials like cotton transformed into knits in the latter half of the collection.
The dual entry of colour blocked garments - white/black and pink/orange were striking midis - very slim and feminine. Added to the sunflower motifs was the rare glitter on the ensembles. Silhouettes were classic like Jumpsuits, pleated skirts, body fitted dresses and a kimono adapted overcoat. 



What really was eye catching, was the show stopping garment that was a modern lehenga consisting of a white crop top with sunflower prints and an emerald green dupatta with gold embroidery detailing.

The exaggerated accessories were the perfect complement to the collection which was ideal for day to night dressing in an assortment of western and Indian wear.
Yogesh Chaudhary’s “Chandrawal” collection embodied the strength of power dressing as mostly required by the generation of today.

KARISHMA SAHANI KHAN DISCOVERED THE FASHIONABLE WORLD OF AN EXPLORER AT LAKME FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014.

Karishma Sahani Khan’s collection ‘Khoj’ at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 had a literal meaning that was inspired by the archaeological inventions and discoveries made all over the world. The collection is based on the stark contrast of the world that passed and the progressiveness of the technology in the current period. 


As if bringing out a point, Karishma marked the change of a forthcoming future and kept her designs green by making the clothing in natural fabrics such as organic cotton, Bamboo and soybean fibres, which are sustainable and bio-degradable.
 Tie-dyed and hand-painted motifs and patterns in natural and toxic free dyes, combined with hand-embroidery techniques were created using discarded materials – fabrics, vegetable sacks, plastic and the traditional ‘mukaish’ strips that brought out the naturalism of the entire collection.
She effortlessly blended unstitched expressionism with tailored practicality with touches of science, mysticism and traditions. 




Overcoats, see-through shirts and the ethnic saris were in shades of denim blue, grey, orange and mint green with pom-pom detailing and layering which gave a fusion look.
Karishma Sahani Khan’s brand Ka-Sha with her very eco-friendly and glamorous collection ‘Khoj’ brought to light the changing ways of a more nature conscious generation.

Outhouse and Akaaro at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014

GAURAV JAI GUPTA, KAABIA AND SASHA GREWAL PRESENTED SUPERB GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014

KAABIA AND SASHA GREWAL OF OUTHOUSE DAZZLED THE AUDIENCE WITH THEIR OPULENT JEWELLERY COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014
Known for their unconventional jewellery designs, Kaabia and Sasha Grewal for their label “Outhouse” presented their stunning collection called “The Column” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. Lustrous gold was entwined into magical pieces that were influenced by the regal look of Greece and Rome. Playing imaginatively with gold, the designer duo proved that the precious metal was versatile enough to be draped like liquid silk or moulded firmly.

The pair was inspired by Proto-geometric art and linear meanders to present a more basic but bold collection. Adding to the beauty of the jewellery were semi-precious stones like amber, turquoise, pearls, garnets and lapis lazuli to create glitz and glamour.

The pair gave the Maang Tikka a New Age feel but with  a Mohawk- like design that rose in curves on the heads of the models, while the earrings flared up to reach the hair turning into large lacy covers. Chokers cascaded down the necks of the models with a line of interlinked pendants or were clasped around the necks with multiple layers.  Belt-cum-shoulder or body harnesses, ornate cropped gloves, windmill inspired ear cuffs, leather/tassel shoulder dusters, cross body leather/gold belt, and spikes erupted from neckpieces. Towering looped Maang Tikka, Haath Phool, facial décor garter-cum- harness and finger cuffs turned ordinary jewellery categories into conversation stoppers.



Opulence was the apt word to describe the jewellery as spiked bangles, looped and tasselled necklaces, shoulder ornaments and neckpieces had intricate attachments while armlets as well as enticing danglers for the ears stole the limelight.

The striking ensembles that matched the avant garde look were courtesy JV by Jatin Varma who added his geometric touches to balance the grand ornaments.

For women who dream of looking like mythical goddesses showered in jewels, “The Column” by Kaabia and Sasha Grewal will make it a reality.

GAURAV JAI GUPTA DISPLAYED A SYMPHONY OF FABULOUS TEXTILES AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014
The most distinct aspect in a Gaurav Jai Gupta show is always the fabulously woven textiles with weaves and yarns that defy imagination. For Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 Gaurav’s collection for his label “Akaaro” presented “Meen”, a line which had exclusive hand woven fabrics in Fulia, Lycra, silk, cotton and zari from Bengal, Benaras and Chanderi. The collection was inspired by underwater reflections in urban Indian landscapes.



Using discreet toned down metallic colours as the base; Gaurav added some pastel accents for added impact. Emphasising on strong woven detailing in some segments, the collection’s ensembles were all engineered to perfection. The colour story was as interesting as the weaves with black and golden grey in variations moved onto blue and silver.



Proving his mastery over weaves and stripes, the saris with crushed pallavs worn with an assortment of pleated waist coat, front open jacket, acid yellow silk cropped shirt or striped long sleeve silk cotton blouses were beauties on the ramp. 


Simple basics like kurtas and pants, long practical cotton achkan dress, tunics with hints of glimmer, engineered cotton zari waist coat/maxi and asymmetrical jacket with cotton dhoti pants, had weaves that were exclusive as well as intricate.

Being faithful to his understated minimal designing inputs, Gaurav Jai Gupta’s collection for LFW WF 2014 offered his personal stylish contemporary line of festive wear for the Indian woman.

My Independence Day Look ~ Tri-color eyeliner

I was really pumped up for this Independence day and i wanted to do something or rather wear something to reflect my patriotism. I love pairing a white kurta with colored legging and dupatta but sadly i don't have any at the moment that fits me right :(

So, all i would experiment with were my eyes, i donno why i have a feeling that i have posted something similar earlier but this is the look that i actually wore for the entire day.

I skipped foundation and all that jazz so you can see in the pictures i don't have that perfect skin :P






The pictures came out a bit darker as i clicked them in a hurry :P , i love how this looks is fun and colorful but not over the top and pretty much wearable !!
We went to connaught place in the evening to see the huge flag and decoration, on our way we spotted many flags and animal figures made out of flowers and after reaching there we realised that it was a bad idea as streets were flooded with people and traffic was crazy but we did manage to get a table at Zen and had an amazing dinner with family.

I know am late but a very Happy Independence Day to all fellow countrymen. :P

How did you celebrate Independence Day ?? I would love to know :)

Till next time...

Wedding Bells : Glimpse of my Engagement (Roka/Misri)


I have been stressing out for leaving my blog unattended for weeks so as a come back post i wanted something personal and special, what could have been more special and personal than talking about the most heart-warming day of my life.. my Roka, some people call it Misri or godh bharai or Tikka its a cultural thing and people have many different words to address it.

So, as i announced on my Instagram on 6th July 2014 about this big day most of you already know that i am getting married (oh god, i am really getting nervous typing this) i really can't express how special i felt reading all your message, it felt like you all were a part of the day.

I just felt everyone was by my side and that feeling is beyond anything in this world.. sometimes i get way too emotional and get carried away trying to express myself so we'll leave it here (but you know what i mean) . Thank you so much !

A lot of you have been messaging and asking me about the function, how we celebrated it or basically what it is all about and what i wore, trust me i am not ignoring or trying to hide anything.
I will be sharing pictures and also would answer all the question on my YouTube channel.
 It might take some more time but it will be there.


Also, you can send in your ideas on what you would like to see in future.

 For this post i'll leave you guys with some pictures to build up your excitement. :P Thanks again !!








This is it for now, there are many more pictures to come (better ones :P)

Have an amazing day !!

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette Sneak Peek !

Coastal Scents launched their Revealed 2 palette on 3rd June 2014, and at the launch the palette was up on the site for $ 9.95 only for just 48 hours. So straight away i placed my order and yesterday i.e. on 19th June i received my palette.
As it was a new launch and the palette was on sale my order took 3 days to process and they shipped out the palette on 6th June. I was expecting it to arrive a little sooner but am glad it came safely.

I haven't used the palette yet just swatched few shades, i'll post the swatches and review by next week. Meanwhile here are few pictures of the palette. 

Btw, they also sent 4 eyeshadow samples and the shades are amazing !! 




Free Samples !!
Its a perfect neutral palette, and so far i am really liking it.
I'll be back with swatches and my review soon.

Till next time.

Sample in my June 2014 MyEnvyBox...

I would highly recommend you guys to follow MyEnvyBox on Facebook to stay updated with their monthly offers and new additions to the monthly box. This month i read on their facebook that they are adding a full size sample in the box on request of their customer and on the basis of the feedback provided by bloggers, this clearly shows that they do take the suggestions seriously and this made me really happy.

So, i received my box few days back and the moment i opened it i had this huge smile on my face !! They sent a Lilac box :)
So, i guess its better to show you guys the content of MyEnvyBox June edition.




The perfume smells amazing, i am actually considering buying the full size one.


Decent sized body lotion sample, but am not very pleased with the scent, i might pour in some other body/hand lotion in the bottle once i finish this up and throw it in my handbag :)
