Spotlight: Rahul Mishra

30th Nov 2014

I haven’t covered the recent fashion weeks on my blog and have decided to share my favourite S/s 15 collection instead. Yep, out of the hundreds on shows there was one that made me ooohhhh and ahhhhh way more than the others. The show in question was Rahul Mishra’s S/s 15 collection @ Paris Fashion Week. Fashionistas in the know will already know that Mishra won the coveted International Woolmark Prize 2013/14. His work is just breathtaking. The way he champions the work and heritage of Indian handlooms and weavers and combines with sleek silhouettes really does bring a new meaning to luxury.

The video below- Rahul Mishra: A winners’ journey is a beauty. The shots showing the hand looms and the hand embroidery highlight the beauty in the craftmanship. Mishra’s success at the Woolmark competition and his subsequent Paris collection equals one hell of a proud moment in Indian Fashion Design. Long may it continue.

Diwali bouquets from Appleyard London

20th October 2014

I really don’t know where the year has gone! I can’t quite believe its Diwali time again although I’m sooo not complaining. I love Diwali- family, friends, food, fireworks and festivities what’s not too love! I’ve noticed over here in the U.K Diwali celebrations are becoming bigger by the year. Who ever sent out Diwali cards before? Now there’s a whole section of cards in my local Waitrose alongside a fireworks counter!

So when the lovely florists at Appleyard London got in contact to share news of their Diwali bouquet range I thought I’d def have to share it on the blog. They kindly gifted me a bouquet too- I chose the gorgeous Jade bouquet, it was the rich reds and oranges of the Grand Prix Roses and Mango Cala Lillies that I thought were fitting with the colours of Diwali.
