Writing this ole blog means that now and then I get an invite or two to upcoming Asian events. Some invites I’m a nah, some a hmmm and once in a while I’m a hell ya! The Fasiana– Fashion weekend takes place over the bank holiday at the May Fair Hotel and def falls into the later category. Hosted by Radhika Hasan (RHL), Aamna & Aisha (A&A) and Cchavi Seth Management the two day event brings over leading Indian designers- Anita Dongre (how much did I crush over her Jaipur Bride photoshoot earlier this year?) Rina Dhaka & Bhairavi Jaikishan and Pakistani designers Umar Sayeed, Nida Azwer and Sania Maskatiya. All the designers will be coming over to personally represent their brands.
The Fasiana fashion weekend opens on 2nd May with the glamorous ‘Champagne, Canapes and Couture’ evening which features a champagne reception, walking exhibits, a fashion show, live music and a special performance by Kathak dancer Fasih ur Rahman of the Akademi institute. Tickets are available here and if you can’t make it down on Friday the event continues with a free open exhibition 12-7pm where designers will be retailing their latest ready to wear and couture pieces at their Indian and Pakistani prices.

Anita Dongre is one of my favourite designer. Her designer pieces looks simple yet elegant.
Agreed, her work is so elegant and rich without being blingy
