Spotlight: Pernia Qureshi @ Paris Haute Couture Shows

11th July 2014

Some people just got it going ON and Ms Qureshi is certainly one of those. She ALWAYS looks soooo effortlessly chic- I met her last year and I asked her about her style tips and her top tip ladies…is to always be well groomed- make sure the basics are right- get yourself waxed/threaded, good brows are a must, take care of your skin/hair, manicure/pedicure etc….(Looking at my chipped nails as I type this makes think uhh ohhh!)

Ms Qureshi was out and about this week in Paris for the Fall/Winter Haute Couture shows- here are some pics from her Instagram account looking yum in Indian designer creations. She’s incredibly passionate about Indian designers and her online store has really shaken up the Indian e-tailer scene. I love the fact she continually scouts new designers giving them a platform for their work.

I LOVE Sonaakshi’s work- my faves are the lemon sari gown Sonam wore and the blush sari gown Deepika wore.

My fave look is Pernia in Anita Dongre. It’s so simple, so classic and really chic.

All the outfits above are available to buy from her online store Pernias Pop Up Shop

Ok so I’m off to find my nail polish remover…

Micro Trend: Plastic Fantastic (Latest Post For Vogue India.com)

21st Feb 2013

Here’s a repost of my latest trend article for Vogue India.Com which went live recently Plastic Fantastic

Let’s make it clear. That seems to have been the brief given to accessory designers for the upcoming Spring/Summer season, as bright colours and graphic prints on garments were pared down with neutral Perspex accessories.

Cuffs, bags, chunky block heels, even brims of floppy summer hats were treated with a cool plastic finish.

Karl Lagerfield led the way, sending high heels, cute brick bags and impractically fabulous sun hats with wide Perspex brims down the runway. Hussain Chalayan received the same memo, his beekeeper sun hats were given a space-age touch with neon plastic insertions.

Over at Simone Rocha, simple totes were made dainty with pretty broderie-anglaise style edging.

Sunglasses are also an easy way to incorporate the trend, as was proved on the runways of Prada, Celine and new label Sheriff & Cherry. If you’re wondering about specific design inspiration, retro styling seems to be the most popular.

A Vogue stand-out accessory has to be the beautiful heels at Charlotte Olympia and Givenchy.

Remember how Cinderella lost her glass slipper? Well, she might have done better if she’d had them made in Perspex, like all the other cool girls.

Chanel Pop Up Covent Garden

17th August 2012

I had some time to kill last week before a meeting and found myself wandering into the ohhh sooo enchanting Chanel pop up store in Covent Garden. All the delicious make-up and heavenly scents were beautifully displayed and it was impossible for me to leave empty handed! I even had my nails done in their treatment area downstairs (The price of a manicure is redeemable against any purchases) Seeing as its all about purple for A/w 12 I went for a vampy deep purple nail varnish called Vendetta. It looks almost black in some light. I also bought a lipstick; I thought it’s about time I graduate from just lipgloss and the pretty Paradis colour is an easy colour for me to wear.

In the sunlight you can see purple sheen.
