30 Favourite Finds at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016!

I’m a Lakme Fashion Week girl, any day. Why the tiff with Amazon India Fashion Week? Well…

One,

I don’t get it. Why does AIFW showcase designs for the NEXT season? I fail to get excited about full sleeves and warm silks while I’m sweating it out in Delhi’s heat. And by the time the next season is finally here, that post about favourites from AIFW is so deeply embedded in the archives, I don’t think most non-fashion fanatics will make the effort to look over it again. The excitement is greater if you’re showcasing clothes people will get to wear in the next 3 months!

Two,

I’ve never physically attended LFW, and knowing that it takes place in Mumbai has left me with some dreamy assumptions of how perfectly LFW gets executed. I assume shows start on time, people stand in queues to enter, no one pushes anyone and each publication has a reserved seat in the media section. I assume the bloggers get as much respect as bigger print publications, that no one sits on a seat meant for someone else, and that people in the front 3 rows don’t ridiculously click images with iPads (that annoyingly obscures the view of anyone sitting in the back rows!) Of course, these are all dreams of a fashion week I’ve never actually attended. If you have, tell me it’s all true! 😉

And even though Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 wasn’t specifically aimed at brides to be, I found plenty of beautiful clothes to love. Continue reading “30 Favourite Finds at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016!”

You might not know this, but Wills India Fashion Week is the only fashion show in the country that showcases designs one season in advance. Which means that if you’re looking for the perfect honeymoon ensemble for that summer destination, or picking pieces for your work wardrobe post the honeymoon and wondering what to wear to dinner parties once temperatures rise again and those heavily embroidered velvets will no longer do – YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

WIFW just concluded their Spring-Summer 2015 shows and I, of course, scoured ALL the shows from all 5 days to bring you Summer Picks for your Trousseau.  Continue reading “Trousseau Picks for your First Summer as a Newlywed: WIFW edition”

I woke up this morning to a mail from IndianRoots.in –

IndianRoots Diwali Mega Sale flat 50% offI thought – FLAT 50% off? Yeah, right. After hearing so much criticism of the recent Flipkart sale, “mega sale” and related phrases make me see red flags all over. I wasn’t buying it.

Still, as a wedding blogger, it’s my duty to check out a big sale for Indian wear, especially if it’s on a website that retails big designers such as Shehla Khan, am:pm and Rohit Bal.

I saw a * mark – turns out, the sale was applicable on EVERYTHING on their website Continue reading “Best Picks from the IndianRoots Flat 50% Sale: under ₹20,000”

Rohit Bal at India Bridal Fashion Week 2013

thedelhibride Rohit Bal IBFW 2013

Dramatic. Fun. Go big or go home. That pretty much sums up the Rohit Bal show!

But before we get into the details of the clothes & the show, here’s another mini-story about…

How I managed to give you live-updates at the jam-packed show with so many people blocking my view

I was one of the first few people to enter the show area, and I quickly found myself a fantastic spot in the aisle (I didn’t want to sit as I would be unable to see the clothes properly). I was basically standing right next to the second row, which was a pretty great spot! Unfortunately, getting in early proved disadvantageous. It started to get really full, so full that other people from the media came and stood right in front of me. It was so packed, they had nowhere else to go!
