Event Review: Bridal Party – Wedding Asia

Event Review: Bridal Party – Wedding Asia

Hi Everyone!

Indian marriages are known for their opulent and vibrant look but in reality there is more than just the glamour in the ceremony. Indian weddings are traditionally multi-day affair including many ceremonies. There is nothing like an Indian wedding. From shining jewellery to glittering dresses, one gets to see it all.

We went to ‘Wedding Asia’ exhibition a few days ago. Wedding Asia hosts a number of wedding shows across India. Each show is a one-stop shopping experience where you and your entire bridal party can walk along the aisles of the country’s best wedding products and services in one convenient location. We were so thrilled to see the entire set up which was on an Indian Wedding. Even the main entrance had a little wedding touch.

We got super excited when we entered the hall as we could see different stalls by talented designers. The dresses designed by them were beautiful which included ‘Bridal Lehngas, Anarkali dresses and even Gowns’. We saw some really good work out there and you have to believe me because the entire section was surrounded by women :).  There were sections for shoes as well. They had a good collection of ‘juties and mojeries’.

Dresses are incomplete without the right kind of jewellery especially in an Indian wedding. There were many stalls which were put up by Jewellery designers and I must say the designs were to die for. From subtle diamonds to elite Kundan, they had it all.

You have to agree that in Indian weddings, food plays a very important role. So wedding Asia  has stalls which were put up by some caterers. And the best part, we got to taste a few starters and deserts which was lip smacking. There were stalls which were also put up by Wedding Planners and Invitation Designers. And I must say that their presentation was the highlight. I have yet to see such beautiful handcrafted invitations and such a beautiful set up.

Hello and wish everyone a very happy friendship day!

If you follow me on social network then you might have know that we have been invited to experience the Summer Spring 2014 collection of the fashion brand RIDRESS. We were totally thrilled and excited to see their upcoming collection.

RIDRESS is a fresh new label that understands contemporary fashion trends and the need for today’s woman to express herself sartorially. Each outfit at RIDRESS is a blend of a new design aesthetic that blends global styles with a unique fashion sensibility that defines the universe of the RIDRESS girl.  I was impressed with their upcoming collection which includes Printastic with assorted playsuits, shift dresses, palazzos and shirts with exotic prints; aztec, gypsy, floral and tropical, you name it and they have it all. RIDRESS has played extremely well with lace and net, there is an array of top, shift and skater dresses where the intricate use of net can be seen. If you like your wardrobe to have a collection of garments with beautiful and elegant necklines, go for a killing at RIDRESS with this spring summer collection. Another awesome part about this collection is that everything in RIDRESS is very pocket friendly.

I paired two looks out of their whole Summer Spring 2014 collection. I enjoyed pairing these two looks and I really do not have to think too much to assemble them because they have a huge range of different items and each of them are super stylish.

Meeting personally with the brains behind these amazing clothes is super facinating for me, the co-founders of the brand RIDRESS (Ridhika Khanna, Creative director and Rishi khanna, Co-Founder, RIDRESS ). They were so sweet and humble and they made us feel like home.

Second Visit to WLFW SS14 – Amazing Show

Second Visit to WLFW SS14 – Amazing Show

Hi Everyone!

Today’s blog post is on my second visit to Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week SS14. I got invites from Wills Lifestyle and the whole experience was exhilarating. I attended the Hi 5 show which showcased designs by Autre by Gautam Gupta, Niharika Sharma, Poonam Dubay, Rinku Sobti and The Next Episode by Shantanu Singh.

The whole show was incredible with loads of colorful designs, patterns and prints. Lets see what each designer’s designs are like:

Starting from the first lineup by Autre by Gautam Gupta:

The next lineup was by designer Niharika Sharma:

The design, the color, the print in this outfit was amazing and the added wow factor were the shoes. I simply loved them.

Next was Poonam Dubay’s lineup. She presented her blooming collection titled ‘Desert Rose’:

PD3 PD2 PD1

Poonam’s design had the Rajasthani grandeur at its peak with Saris, Angrakha and delicate Lehengas. Personally I loved all the designs by her. The designs were sophisticated Indian wear. Out of all of these, I loved the lehnga which Indrani Dasgupta wore:

Followed by was Rinku Sobti’s collection. She used solid colors: Yellow, Pink and Green in her collection. She showed prominent necklines in dazzling colors:

Structured dresses and saris dazzled the ramp in bright hue.

All in all I had great fun and enjoyed the show. Being a fashion blogger it always gives you joy to witness new trends and fashion.

I wore my white dress to the show and paired my yellow bag and belt with it.
