I’m well aware of how late I am to the party. Sabyasachi’s 2016 collection has been out for a while, and I’ve been sitting quietly in a corner, mesmerised and, oddly, nostalgic. I truly discovered Sabyasachi only in 2012 – the year of my wedding. I had, of course, heard the name over the years but since fashion and designer names were something “other people” knew about and fan-girled all over, it was left outside the purview of my commoner’s life. In the months leading up to my wedding, though, Sabyasachi went from “Is Sabyasachi a woman or man?” to suddenly a name I uttered only with reverence.

Most celebrities have stylists on their glam team these days, which basically means Best Dressed Celebs lists have a hard time picking just a handful to feature. But it also means more wedding wear inspiration for us, since our desi celebrities love to get into saris, lehengas and anarkalis!
So, yes, while there are plenty of Best Dressed Celebs list out there, I wanted to do a special Wedding Edition. Here is the best Indian wear inspiration we found in the first quarter of 2016. Continue reading

THE Vogue Wedding Show kicked off in Delhi this Friday, and if you’re wondering – was it really worth attending? – the answer’s a resounding yes. Of course, it’s a luxury wedding exhibition, so we expected nothing but the best-in-the business designers and jewellery makers at Taj Palace Hotel.
We spent a whole day at Vogue Wedding Show, and covered every inch of it. Not a single stone unturned. Here are the stalls we loved and our favourite pieces from the show! Continue reading

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 🙂

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
Panic is slowly, but surely, making it’s way into my mind. I have bits and pieces figured out, but not a single look is a 100% done. This is what I’ve figured out till now –
DECIDED! 🙂 All the way from the outfit, the earrings and the exact bangles I’m going to have on.
Footwear is the only part of the look that’s still a big fat questions mark. I need to buy pretty jootis. Continue reading
“This is the best wedding exhibition that Delhi has to offer to brides. It’s the only one I showcase my work at.”
– overheard at Bridal Asia 2014
I visited on Monday, when the crowds had thinned and the displays had dwindled. At the entrance, I took out my cell phone and opened the Shopping Guide I’d written a few days earlier. With a guide in one hand, and a media badge in the other – I was ready to explore Bridal Asia and find the best of what it had to offer.
Did my favourite designers have outfits I would love this time around? Who had an entirely new collection? Which ones would disappoint? And which new names would I discover I loved today? Continue reading

While you can always Google and find out a (very) long list of exhibitors for most events, I wanted to write a quick note on the best of what you’ll find at Bridal Continue reading
