India Bridal Fashion Week: Part 3: Ardash Gill, Suneet Varma & Tarun Tahiliani

6th August 2013

Here’s my last part of my India Bridal Fashion Week coverage

Day 5: Ardash Gill & Suneet Varma

Ardash Gill

I don’t mind a bit of bling and I don’t mind loud colours but when they are combined it’s just a little too much for me! and Ardash Gill’s was just that! bold colours of fushias, bottle greens, bright oranges, deep blues met with a whole lot of metallic embellishment. It wasn’t for me but what do you think?

Suneet Varma

Suneet Varma’s Pompeii inspired collection came with a heavy dose of styling but looking beyond the headpieces, armlets and collar necklaces there were some stunning pieces on show. Suneet reinvented the traditional silhouette in this collection, saris, blouses, pants, lenghas were all blended together resulting in some exciting fresh shapes. Blouses especially were given centre stage- there were beautiful macrame examples, corset styles and interesting cut outs. It was a fab collection and there were plenty of pieces for the modern bride.

Friday Fives: Lace sari blouses

29th March 2013

Long sleeve sari blouses have been back around for a while now and I’m smitten with the lace styles. Lace is much more flattering and forgiving on chunky arms and bingo wings then a fully covered style which may emphasis areas you may want to hide. Here’s my five favourite styles.

people magI adore this sari Neha Kapur wore at her wedding and the pretty pleated chiffon and lace sleeve blouse. Can someone tell me who the designer was?

Stick-On Eye-liners

11th March 2012

The oh so chic Adele-esque Dior Velvet stick on eye-liners have been around for a few months now and this S/s 12 are joined by variations of the trend. I’m loving the stunning lace transfers from Face-Lace.com by make-up legend Phyllis Cohen. Whether you go small or big these transfers will make a stunning impact.

The full range is out this month at www.face-lace.com
