Cover Girl: Diana Penty in Emilio Pucci

Diane Penty looks stunning on Vogue India's July 2012 cover! Love the Spring 2012 Emilio Pucci dress! One of the hottest trends; asymmetrical skirts and lace! The accessories are just perfect to add that pop of colour.  One of my favourite covers!

Spring 2013: Marchesa

Marchesa, the name that resonates from the lips of A-list celebrities on the red carpet has now looked to India for inspiration for their new Spring 2013 ready to wear collection. The collection consists of sari draping, fringe, brocade, paisley, hand embroidery,thread work and in vibrant traditional colours like golds, chartreuse, burgundy, ivory, rani pink and bright blue.

Many of the dresses had the layered fabrics we see in Anarkalis today and embroidery on the neckline was gorgeous. I wish they used more accessories like Chanel did and maybe even used some South Asian models. It would of just added that extra touch.

A few of the pieces were a complete miss to me like the burgundy dress with the gigantic embroidery in the middle or the see through lengha with shorts. Haven't seen it before and it just looked off. Here are a few of my favourite looks. To see the entire collection, check out Your Love Story's page on Facebook here! Don't forget to Like it! :) Have a beautiful day!

PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012: Anamika Khanna

Anamika Khanna's left all that had the privilege of witnessing this epic collection completely spellbound. The inspiration was the strong Indian woman and you totally get that from this collection. More like the Warrior Princess or "Jahnsi ki Rani" kind of theme. The colour palette that we've been seeing a lot of was blacks, blushes, creams, pinks, cobalt blue, whites, and gold. The silhouette was very Desi with a modern flair. Loved the dupatta draped around the neck like a cape and the dhoti was a hot style. My personal favourite was the combination of the pajami & salwar. I've never seen that before and I loved it!

PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012 - Ashima Leena

Their designs stole my heart at last year's 2011 Delhi Couture Week (see here) and they didn't fail to do it again this year. Gorgeous pieces that are fit for a Queen. The collection had had a  traditional colour palette of metallic golds, silvers, whites, creams and slowly moving into rich tones of red, blues, oranges, and my absolute favourite, blush pink splashed onto gorgeous lush fabrics.

Comprised mostly of lenghas, shararas, anarkalis, saris (oh my..), jewel encrusted corsets worn with full length skirts, saris, this collection had it all! Loved the belted saris and the cuts and angles of the anarkalis.

The collection is perfect for the Desi Bride looking for a magestic look on her special day. As per Ashima Singh, "It was a deliberate attempt to begin the show with soft whites and gradually move on to lighter colours and darker shades in the end. The collection is not catering to just one mood of the bride-to-be, the aim on the contrary is to manifest every emotion through all hues in a rainbow," adds Ashima Singh.

PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012 - JJ Valaya

JJ Valaya's collection brought the Turkish Empire to life with his collection "Azrak" which means "rare and uncommon" in Turkish. The collection did have many different pieces by combining colours that you haven't seen in awhile like beige pants with a turquoise blue bodice and black lush velvet lengha bottom with baby pink long choli . The colour palette was a mix of orange, black, red, turquoise blue, pinks, and whites. The designs had very high necklines, motifs, zardosi, heavy embroidery, stone work on fabrics such as brocade, silk, jacquard and dupion. Art on the runway. This collection is exquisite.

PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012 - Varun Bahl

Varun Bahl's gorgeous collection entitled "India Noveau" with a mix traditional fabrics and some really fun modern ideas. I loved the net and sheer fabric with the peek a boo cholis and bodices underneath for the tops and the sheer lengha bottom with the visible pajami. Really cute idea that has carried over from last year's trend. The designs were very simple with very little embroidery. More concentration was on the fabric and the fall of the outfits.

The colour palette was a complete shock! It was mainly black, cobalt, grey and red with hints of ombre in some of the designs. One of my favourite pieces is the cobalt blue sari with the black lining. I've seen style at so many retail stores like Winners, H&M, Zara and so many more. The outlining trend is big for the fall and I love how Mr. Bahl includes it in Desi fashion.

Desi Bride: Backstage at Ritu Kumar's "Panchvastra" Show

So I didn't get to see the black and nude anarkali like I wanted to but, I stumbled upon this awesome blog called the Style Struck Diaries. I love the content and the fashion is crazy! Tips, latest trends and style ideas straight from Nikita who is a fashion stylist in Delhi!  Her latest post was my dream job! She had the privilege to assist in styling a Ritu Kumar show! The pictures were just beautiful and I just couldn't imagine how amazing the designs looked on the ramp, under all those bright lights. Check out more pictures at Style Struck Diaries!

Ritu Kumar took inspiration from the five pivotal women from the epic tale of Mahabaraat: Ganga, Draupadi, Kunti, Amba and Gandhari. She wanted to depict the tale through fabrics and theatre. Each woman was represented in a different way.For Ganga, garlands of flowers as jewelery and was dressed in white and blush pinks; Draupadi was styled in black and red with a huge bindi (which I love!); Kunti was dressed in heavily embellished lenghas, a head piece and hair was pulled into a tight bun; Amba wore bright colours but was draped with chunni to represent being "exhiled" and for Gandhari the chosen colours were black and red and the models wore a sheer blindfold over their eyes. According to Maharbaraat, Gandhari's husband was born blind therefore she voluntarily blindfolded herself as well. I'm not very familiar with the entire story of Mahabaraat but when I think of it, I think about the epic fights and the kings. I don't think about the women who were essential in this piece of history. This was a beautiful way to pay tribute to them.

The invitation
The detailing is just breathaking

Kolapuri's that were custom made  for Ganga. I love the seashells! Perfect for a beach wedding? I think so!






Ghandhari. The black and gold sari is gorgeous! I love the velvet detailing on the sleeves.
