Crushing on Candy Coloured Lehengas by Priyal Prakash!

1 Jun Two tone pink lehenga with zig zag lines - Priyal Prakash Summer 2016 collection

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.

The Ultimate Guide to Making Guests Comfortable at Your Summer Wedding

19 Jun Summer wedding guest ideas to make them comfortable

We’re at the tail end of Summer here in Delhi (or so I hope!) and I can’t wait for the monsoons to get here. Oh, the rains are coming – I know! I saw it, those insane flooded road pictures of Mumbai making their way all over Twitter this morning. Keeping aside all the infrastructure problems they highlight, it made me jealous of everyone who gets to enjoy the rains in Mumbai today.

But since we’re still suffocating in 40+ degree temperatures in Delhi, I thought I’ll finally put together a list of summer wedding ideas I’ve had. Everyone’s done this list on the Internet, but I wanted to do a very specific kind of list – of what to do to make your guests comfortable at your summer wedding.

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?

The Best Lehengas at Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2015

23 Mar

This is the second post in the Best of Lakme Fashion Week series. The first one on the best saris and suits can be found here.

The best lehengas at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015

Out of the 80+ designers who showcased at Lakme Fashion Week, only a handful created lehengas I loved. This didn’t come as a surprise because the Summer Resort edition doesn’t really scream bridal, and since lehengas are essentially wedding wear, there were limited options to pick from anyway. Here are the few I loved most for summer and beach weddings.

What we refer to as the ‘wedding season’ in India has just stretched on and onnn this year with brave brides and grooms setting dates not only through spring but well into summer. Since summer weddings are pretty unusual in this part of the world, when I received a few invitations myself, I started to wonder, how does one prepare for festivities in the heat? Whether you are the bride or groom or even a guest – preparation for such an event can be quite a challenge! And that’s how we come to dilemna number one –

1. What to wear.

As soon as I see an invitation to a wedding, first I check the dates to see if I can make it, if I can – I start to mentally peruse my wardrobe for options on what to wear. This system usually works very well and I pretty much…
