14 Favourite Finds for Brides! From Shyamal & Bhumika’s Romantic Collection


I recently fell for a little romance. It was a love so deep, I was most tempted to trade in my husband for…oh, I couldn’t choose which one! The lilac lehenga, or the pale blue gown…or that fiery red anarkali?

It was near-impossible to choose ONE, I’ll tell you that.

No prizes for guessing what I fell in love with – Shyamal & Bhumika’s new collection of the most delicately beautiful Indian wear, fittingly titled “A Little Romance”. With all the romantic hues of fiery red love to pale blues and soft lilacs, it’s a dreamy collection for the princess bride.

Breath-taking, gorgeous, stunning – even these sound like a bit of an underestimation to describe the sheer beauty of it all. The designers categorise this collection as “vintage and period couture with a timeless elegance. The designs will make heads turn, and it’s something out of the ordinary for your special day.”

I loved more than a dozen pieces, and put them all together for you to browse at leisure. The remaining 40 odd outfits from the collection, including pre-draped saris, lehengas, anarkalis and gowns are available right after the Top Picks.

Best of Amazon India Fashion Week A/W 2015

Best of Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2015

I might as well re-name this post to The Best of Payal Singhal, because hers was the only show I loved completely at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015. For the first time, I loved not just the wearable pieces, but also those statement-making ones that leave you wondering who would wear that off the runway. Yes, I loved those ones too.

I digress.

Jyotsna Tiwari at India Bridal Fashion Week 2014

Jyotsna Tiwari India Bridal Fashion Week 2014

My favourite show of India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 – Tarun Tahiliani. My second favourite? This one.

Jyostsna Tiwari took us for a romantic stroll under a night sky lit up with stars. Among cherry trees, we swayed to the music. Angels walked past in baby pinks and sky blues, tiny floral embroidery on nets and tulles. Dewy makeup, pink lips. French braids and messy buns.

Raghavendra Rathore at India Bridal Fashion Week 2013

Men, men, men. Gorgeous men, smoking hot men, in well-fitted suits and pants and razor sharp cuts on their jackets and waistcoats. Ufff!

I was sitting away from my husband during this show, and I quickly developed a crush on one of the male models. Note to all husbands – NEVER leave your wife alone during a Raghavendra Rathore fashion show. She’ll quickly develop a male model crush that will be difficult to get rid off.

Back to the collection. It had Raghavendra Rathore written all over it. The perfect fit, men looking sharp – it was also the only show where there was an equal number (if not more) of Menswear. So many great ideas for the boys – what they can wear to their own wedding functions! Throw out those plain kurtas, and get yourself some ideas from this plethora of awesomeness in the mens’ collection.

While the men set fire to the runway, the women weren’t too far behind. I found a couple of outfits I loved for us girls as well. Although nothing from the women’s collection could be worn Continue reading “Raghavendra Rathore at India Bridal Fashion Week 2013”
