Fashion, makeup and more goodness at A Lavish Affiar



Lavish Dulhan launched their latest Summer/Fall 2012 magazine in complete style at theFermenting Cellar in Toronto's Distillery District. The night was full of champagne, hor d'ourves and of course a fashion show that showcased the latest styles in the Desi Fashion scene by two of Toronto's hottest fashion houses: Bombay Trendz and Frontier Heritage. This was the team at Lavish Dulhan's version of what a Bridal show should be like. A night full of cocktails, fashion and fun!

I spoke with Rohit Sharma, Editor-In-Chief & Founder of Lavish Dulhan about the amazing response the event received. Despite that the gloomy weather, there was a great turnout. The fashion show was amazing and even though there were only two fashion houses that were represented, it was just enough to get these Desi Brides imagining themselves walking down the aisle or into their reception in any of the creations. Rohit also commented that it was a really relaxed and chilled environment. At a typical wedding show, Brides usually come with their families, even their in-laws to be and don't really get a chance to be themselves. At this event, Brides were more relaxed and were really enjoying the night.

I wasn't able to personally attend A Lavish Affair but I am in awe of the makeup by Beauty Concept Shirley Wu and many of the outfits from Bombay Trendz and Frontier Heritage. I loved the makeup so much that I contacted Shirley and asked where I can grab the bright pink lipstick and coral lipstick because I need them! The pink colour is called Magenta and the coral one is Red Coral from Motives by Loren Ridginder. Check it out here!

I love this colour!! It's called Magenta by Motives Cosmetics

The perfect coral for the summer! Love this too! It's Red Coral by Motives Cosmetics

The choice of outfits were gorgeous as well. There were so many gorgeous designs but I loved the multi coloured lengha from Bombay Trendz. I just can't get over how gorgeous the magenta and the saffron looked together with hints of red and purple. Colours that I wouldn't pair together but in this case it looks really good. Totally on trend with the the long sleeved choli with the gorgeous embroidery on the neckline. You wouldn't even need a necklace. Just a stunning pair of earrings and you're ready to go!This had to be my favourite piece. A close second was the net mint sari with the navy blue velvet pallu from Frontier Heritage! That was so different and the tiny detailing on the net with the beautiful embroidery on the pallu was perfect. There were outfits for every occasion in an array of colours and styles that will appeal to everyone. Enjoy lovelies! 

Gorgeous shot of the outfits. Beautiful colours and embroidery.

The back is nice too! Love the hairstyle. Edgy and feminine at the same time. 




Beautiful sari from Frontier Heritage. Love, love, love the velvet pallu!

Elie Saab's latest collection just came out and with all his collections, there is a colour palette; lime green, browns, taupes, mauves, egglpant purples, black, champagne and grey. There are looks that are perfect for the day and translate beautifully into the night. The pairing of browns with green and aubergine and grey are really fresh. My favourite parts of the collection are the high necklines, sheer sleeves on the dresses, the peplum aubergine skirt, the embroidery and I love, love the accessories! I am obsessed with vintage looking bags. The black with the taupe outlining is so pretty!  Check it out lovelies!

Couture Fall 2012: Raf Simon's First Collection For Dior



The fashion world awaited with baited breath for Raf Simon's first collection as the new designer for the iconic brand Christian Dior. Since being appointed as the new designer after the dismissal of John Galliano, all eyes were on the runway and Mr. Simon's did not disappoint.Grabbing inspiration from the classic Dior of the 1940's, Simon's created stunning dresses cinched at the waist with full skirts, tuxedo jackets, A-line mini peplum dresses paired with cigarette pants and of course breath taking evening dresses. Pointed heels in a variety of colours some capped other not completed the looks and very minimal accessories were used.

What I love about this collection is that each piece is wearable. The A-line mini dress with pants looks amazing. How many times have you gone to a store and fell in love with a dress that was way to short. I have! Countless times! Now I just buy it and wear it with tights! But the A-line minis with pants looks divine! I fell in love! I'm so glad that Peplum is here to stay, for awhile. It's such a feminine look and it just adds fun to any outfit.
