For a while I have been meaning to find a nice banarasi dupatta. I didn’t want anything in the red/pink colour palette. I wanted a unique colour to complement the festive season and my off-white palazzo suit. Diwali is a festive time and calls for lots of parties and events. I had to plan a few outfits for this season for various events and as usual my first point of contact for Indian clothes is Jyoti Chandhok. In her studio, there is a whole load of fabric and fashion treasure. Her designs are so classic that you can never go wrong with them. When I saw this burnt orange coloured banarasi dupatta, I simply fell in love with the colour. I loved the modern chevron design on the dupatta. The burnt orange colour was very unique and was totally apt for this Autumn.

I wore this dupatta on my off-white palazzo suit which I bought from India during my last trip. I bought this suit from Delhi at an exhibition. This suit is very versatile and can be easily teamed up with different coloured dupattas to create unique looks. If you want to keep the look a bit muted, then just wear a plain off-white dupatta. But if you want to go for a festive look, try a bright coloured dupatta.

I wore this dupatta for a day Diwali event and styled it with my favourite festive mojris from Jaipur. I love these juttis – they go with any ethnic look and are so comfortable. I wear them with most of my Indian outfits. See how I have styled them here and here. My earrings are from Jewellery by DivyaChugh

How did you dress up for Diwali? Would love to hear your Diwali fashion experiences. I will be sharing my actual Diwali outfit and decor ideas post soon. Till then, enjoy the Autumn sunshine.

THREADS – Indian Fashion Trunk Show

Threads Christmas! (2)

I get so many queries on where to find nice Indian wear in London. Most of my acquaintances too struggle with the same problem. Personally I have always shopped my Indian wardrobe from India itself. But there have been times when I really needed something here in London and I too struggled to find something nice. Thanks to my blog, I had an opportunity to connect with some lovely brands based here which offer distinctively different designs; designs which I personally prefer and something I am more likely to wear. Today on the blog I will talk about two such brands who are trying to change people’s mindset towards Indian fashion by focusing on the authenticity of the fabric and embroideries. Continue Reading

Fashion Evening with Manish Malhotra

asian fashion blog the rednotebook uk

Last week I attended Aashni & Co press day with Manish Malhotra, where he unveiled his latest collection. The British Asian Trust, hosted an exclusive preview of the latest festive collection and he was announced as  the brand ambassador of the charity at the event. It was a fantastic opportunity to come up close and personal with Bollywood’s go to designer. During the press meet he talked about this work, movies and his fashion journey. So Manish was this creative young boy who was not into studies but rather focused on other interesting things like modelling and Bollywood. He loved sketching and was obsessed with films. He started off by working in a boutique and really enjoyed interacting with clients on a daily basis. During his time there he got into making his own clothes. It so happened that Sridevi  saw his work and he was invited to style her next shoot. There has been no looking back since then. He has now worked in big Bollywood movies and styled super stars. He actually introduced the concept of styling to Indian cinema. His next project was the launch of his own clothing line ten years back and now plans to open his standalone store in London. His story is very inspirational and I hope he continues to inspire us with his creations. Continue Reading

Calling all would be brides, mum in laws, bridesmaids and of course grooms to the Asian Bride Live bridal show at ICC Birmingham on Sunday 15th March. Asian Bride Live is now returning to the ICC Birmingham for the second year running on Sunday 15thMarch 2015. The show is organised by Asian Bride magazine, one of UK’s biggest Asian wedding publication. I did attend one of their shows in London last year and really enjoyed the experience of exploring and discovering new brands. What I enjoyed most was the fashion show, that was finely choreographed and a treat for the eyes. This year’s live catwalk has now been upgraded to its own room to create even more theatre for the day.

I personally recommend attending bridal shows in preparation for your big day. You get access to all wedding vendors under one roof. So whether you are looking for photographers, cake makers, makeup artists, caterers or décor companies you will find them all at Asian Bride Live. It’s a good place to start your wedding preparation list. If you have already started planning you wedding then the Asian Bride Live will help you pick up some ideas plus you might be in for some discount from the vendors. The organisers have taken care of your entertainment needs as well – there’ll be the finest in wedding entertainment from dancers to magicians, cabaret acts and musicians, not to mention the best DJs in town.

So go meet the wedding experts on 15th March 2015 at ICC Birmingham and discover all your wedding needs under one roof. See full details below
