Contemporary Fashion 101

For starters, contemporary fashion is fashion specially designed for those who are in their early 20s and 30s. It's the only type of fashion which is constantly changing so don't be surprised if you pick something today and it is out of fashion, the next year. The ongoing contemporary fashion for me is something which is super comfortable yet stylish. People are now preferring clothes which don't require much effort but are stunning.
This fashion includes culottes, espadrilles, bomber jackets, or tops with heavy shoulders or flares and ruffles (another trend which is gaining popularity). 
The top that I'm featuring in this post is the best example of contemporary fashion. It is so voluminous and detailed that you'll end up getting everybody's attention. Oh, and I wore the same outfit to one of the days of the India Couture Week and many people stopped and praised me for the look I created.

On a lighter note, you must have noticed that I got another tattoo made. It's my sister's name which was her birthday gift (third and the last one!)

Opera by Monisha Jaising- A Photo Story

As the title tells, Monisha Jaising's couture collection was inspired by the Opera. While I had my eyes on most of the silhouettes, there were many which didn't match my palate (like the green and the burgundy ones). Apart from some of the outfits, the collection was lip-smackingly good. I was able to get some fine shots from the show and you'll find below, the ones that I adored.

India Couture Week '17- Shyamal & Bhumika

I entered the hall 30 minutes late, breathing heavily, running towards the media pit to capture the perfect shots of the show. As it was my first Shyamal & Bhumika show, my excitement was beyond words. I have been an ardent follower of the brand since quite some years now but getting to watch their creations live is one hell of an experience.

With my camera in hand, I was ready for The Princess's Soiree Couture Collection. As soon as the lights came on, 9-10 models were seen happily chatting to each other. They had donned glamorous clothes in the shades of gold.


The collection tells a story of the modern day bride who is celebrating life through her clothes. It consists of European details and colors like champagne gold, ruby wine and coral blue. There's fine sequins work and intricate embroidery in this collection. Some of the outfits took my breath away like the one with the heavy work on the shoulders or the flowy gown which give a fairytale feel. These styles are fresh and appealing to the young Indian women out there who won't mind a foreign touch to their outfits. 

I really liked how the designers combined ruffles, frills and flares with lehengas. These details made the outfits look heavy and grand while being super easy to carry. If you plan on wearing these lehengas, all the attention will go to these details and you won't be able to find a single woman who'll be able to match your outfit. 


My first experience of Shyamal & Bhumika was superb. Every detail, every outfit and every style spoke to me. All I wanted to do, after watching this show was to get one of the designers' creations for myself. 
We would definitely love to see more of the duo in the upcoming fashion weeks!

A Pastel Affair

As you all might already know, the GST rules of this year just came out. Right before the declaration of the GST, all online websites went on sale. And not any sale but the sale of the century. I don't think I've ever shopped so much in two days.
The one maxi dress which I came across during the sale was from Ajio. They had a huge variety to choose from and that maxi seemed just perfect. I ordered it instantly and I just had to wear it and post pictures on the blog. No reason at all. Also, I'm investing a lot of money on maxis because there's pretty much nothing which is comfortable enough in this weather of Delhi (I know, many can relate).
Oh, and the pictures were taken at this adorable cafe in Saket called the Soho Cafe. Their interiors are very homely and comforting and the food is lip smacking!
