Priyal Prakash is the designer kid on the block most of you wouldn’t have heard of. While she runs a small boutique in Shahpur Jat, her business is anything but small. Her designs are sold on Pernia’s Pop Up Shop and she is the go-to designer for all offbeat brides. If you love traditional, go on and skip this post. But if you’re looking for something different, she’s your girl.
When I had first seen a Priyal Prakash lehenga, it intrigued me. But I wasn’t going to put myself in it. It was for women with fashion-forward tastes, not someone like me. Then two years ago, I went roka shopping with my best friend to Shahpur Jat and we thought, why not try on a Priyal Prakash design and see how it looks. What a fantastic decision that turned out to be! Her lehenga looked drop-dead gorgeous on my friend, and I was converted to a fan for life. Priyal herself, of course, explains how her designs are not for every girl. Either you “get” her design aesthetic, or you don’t. I say – try it out on yourself, and there’s a good chance you will love it IF you’re looking for something that’s a breath of fresh air and unique.
What Sabyasachi, Anita Dongre and others have lined up for Bridal Wear this upcoming season
With all the major exhibitions and fashion weeks lined up to take place over the next 3 months, and sale season on in full-swing right now, it can only mean one thing – NEW COLLECTIONS are just around the corner! Over the last few weeks, designers have slowly been revealing sneak peeks of what’s coming out of their design houses this year, and based on the pictures – it’s going to be another season of fabulously dressed brides 🙂
If you’re trousseau shopping right now, you have to make a decision – buy outfits that are from the previous season but are on sale, or wait to see what the new collection looks like. Well, your answer lies in here. Have a look at the designs and colour palette coming your way over the next few months. Continue reading
Well, under ₹46,000 to be precise.
Receptions. An event most of the Indian community still continues to have at weddings, even when the bride and groom are from the same city. I know there’s a small section of you who have started to do away with Receptions as a separate event altogether. Makes sense. You can just combine your wedding ceremony with the Reception. After all, when your pheras are done and you stand on stage to greet your guests as man and wife, having a separate Reception essentially means you’re going to do the same thing all over again. The workings of a combined Wedding+Reception is something I can talk about for an hour, so let’s leave that for another post!
