Cadenzza collaborates with Ash Kumar to celebrate upcoming Eid-Al-Fitr

9th May 2014

I popped into Cinnamon Soho yest for a pr event showcasing Cadenzza’s upcoming collaboration with Henna King- Ash Kumar. Cadenzza the sister brand of the mighty Swarovski was launched only last year and is a one stop shop for accessories with an edge. They stock over sixty designer brands including my label crushes- Deepa Gurani, Shourouk and Mawi. (hey what can I say- an Indian girl loves a bit of bling!) And next month the brand have called in Ash Kumar to add some sparkle to their gift boxes to celebrate Eid-Al-Fitr. All details are at the bottom of the post. : )

Friday Fives: Zara A/w 13 Jewellery

23rd August 2013

I can’t bring myself to do any proper A/w shopping posts because I’d have to then face the fact Summer is almost over! yep denial in work over here. But jewellery is season-less non? Well that’s what I’d like to think and so here I am sharing these beauties that have just dropped in store at Zara.

Friday Fives: VALLIYAN by Nitya S/s 13

19th July 2013

Recently my Friday Fives have been all about accessories and I continue this week by sharing Valliyan by Nitya– S/s 13 collection. The label was founded in 2008 by Nithya Arora who instantly wowed the fash pack with her distinctive designs which her bio describes as…

“….reflect (ing) a sculptural textured quality, entirely handcrafted in India and most of the pieces are one of a kind. In her collections one can see vintage influences, bright Indian hues and detail, topped with a New York edge.”

Her roll call of Bolly fans is endless and her pieces regularly grace the pages of the Vogue India, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire & Grazia. And last year she won Grazia’s Young Designers Award for Best Accessories Designer last year.

As regular readers know I’m partial to a pretty look book and this one is ohh soo pretty. The images were shot by Prarthna Singh and have a Lula magazine (my fav magazine!) editorial vibe. Enjoy!

Friday Fives: Outhouse

28th Dec 2012

This week’s Friday Fives is five lush pics from Outhouse’s A/w 12 look book. I do remember thinking after the Lakme Fashion Week shows that there were some really strong accessories designers and that I should do a special Spotlight post- but looks like I forgot! DOH!

Outhouse was founded by sister’s Sasha and Kabbia Grewal last year. Their combined experience in the industry (Kabbia interned at Eddie Borgo and Sasha designed an export house that’s clients included Topshop) plus their clear and distinct design vision has resulted in a fab start for the young label -lots of press, celeb fans and importantly stockists!

Unfortunately their website links to not alot. I understand it takes time to build a website but a note to all new designers- at least put up a holding page with some basic company, contact and stockist info! Don’t make it soooo hard for your customer to find you!!! Well I did find their facebook page – Outhouse Facebook which has some info!

Label Lust : ISHARYA

18th April 2012

Isharya was founded in 2004 by Radhika Tandon and sis-in-law Gauri. They describe their yum pieces as Bollywood glamour meets California cool- a perfect description for this stunning costume jewellery line. I love the S/s 12 collection so much that I had to narrow it down to my favourite earrings only (otherwise the post would have had 50 odd pics!) Celeb fans include stuning Eva Longaria, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz.
