Monisha Jaising at Amazon India Couture Week 2015

2 Aug

Monisha Jaising Amazon India Couture Week 2015I’m writing a Day 3 post on Day 5 of Couture Week. This is not how it usually works at the blog. We attend the show, live-tweet and update you on Instagram, all the while typing notes furiously into the phone. 12 hours later, pictures have been selected, edited & uploaded, opinions written, and a post is published. We like speed here, because we know you want to see the best bridal picks from each show the next morning. You expect it, and we love giving it to you.

So you can imagine - this time, when posts have not been published according to our usual schedule, I’ve been smacking myself on the head over and over again. While there are numerous reasons for the delayed posting schedule, there is one that finally lit the light bulb in my head. It’s been “the lack of inspiration”.

Sure, the clothes have been nice. But for some reason, they haven’t left me mesmerised, awe-struck, breathless. I haven’t felt magic unravel itself in front me. Of course, I’ve wondered - is this what happens when you’re attending your third year of fashion weeks? All the awe and wonder is unceremoniously rubbed off? The magic is gone? Or am I just tired, with all the extra work that came up right before fashion week began. But isn’t beautiful fashion supposed to leave you feeling high? Reignite a sleepy soul?

Have my expectations from fashion week become unrealistic?

Or, and really think about this one - is there a genuine lack of beauty this time around. Well, bridal beauty specifically.

While I lose sleep analysing why India Couture Week is failing to wake me up from my mental slumber, YOU still want to know what the best bridal picks were. Obviously. Trousseau shopping doesn’t stop just because one blogger didn’t fall head over heels in love at one fashion week.

And I still want to share the pieces I did like with you. So let’s share :)

Anita Dongre’s Summer Bride 2015

2 Apr Anita Dongre Summer Bride 2015

There was one big name missing from fashion week last month - Anita Dongre.

Lakme Fashion Week came and went, as did Wills India Fashion Week’s re-named avtaar - Amazon India Fashion Week. I did multiple “best of” posts for both, and was sure that Anita Dongre would make it to the Top Picks. But not a sniff of a spring-summer or autumn-winter collection by the designer, at either fashion week. Where is she?

Brides all over the globe have been waiting for what Anita Dongre has in store for us in 2015. Is there anything new in the works?
