Umrao Jaan Garden Gala

asian fashion blog umrao jaan the rednotebook blogAs I made my way through the marigold-clad black iron gate into the sprawling garden estate, I was transported  into a poetic world of Lucknow’s Mughal courtyard. Billionaires H S Narula and wife Surina opened their lush green garden estate to support renowned South Asian dance company Akademi. The charity garden gala recreated the magic of Umrao Jaan – an Urdu classic, based on the famous Lucknow courtesan. It was Akademi’s first ever fundraising gala and their sheer dedication toward their passion was fully evident in the interactive Umrao Jaan narration. It was conceptualised by Mira Kaushik, Director, Akademi and brought to life by creative director Subhalaxmi Mukherjee. Continue Reading

Aashni + Co presents A Summer Affair


Great news all, one of my favourite designer designer Anushreee Reddy will be showcasing the much appreciated The Royal Courtyard collection featured in Lakme fashion week right here in London. Aashni + Co will be hosting an exclusive, summer season extravaganza, A Summer Affair, taking place on Saturday 20th June, 11am – 6pm at Park Suite, The Dorchester, 53 Park Lane, Mayfair, London W1K 1QA. The trunk show will curate latest collections by Anushree Reddy, Rose Room Couture and Amishi.

I recently wrote this post ‘The Perfect Outfit for Sisters’ for Think Shaadi and Anushree Reddy was my go to choice for fun and feminine Indian outfits. This is a great opportunity to view her latest collection in person and The Royal Courtyard will be debuting internationally.

The other brand in the trunk show is Rose Room Couture by designers by Isha and Namrata Rajpal with celebrity fans of the label including singer Kanika Kapoor.The strong identity of Rose Room Couture lies in its super-feminine and fantastical style, breaking free from seriousness and old school traditions.  And there will also be Amishi London named after the designer herself. The brand is known for its luxury handbags and jewellery.

The event is right in time for your festive shopping  so save the date and be ready to savour some great designs.
