How I found my Lehenga for My Brother’s Sangeet – My Lehenga story

pink wedding lehenga sangeet lehenga asian fashion wedding blog uk

This is a long overdue post but I wanted to take some time out and share my journey with you. Must mention that this post is very personal and comes from an intimate space.

I got married in the age of non-existent social media.There were no wedding blogs, no Pinterest and nowhere to get inspiration from. But like any other girl it is was my most special day and I had the opportunity the buy the most special outfit. When I was doing my wedding shopping, my mum and masi took me to some known places in Delhi like Ushnak Mal in South Extension. Our last stop was their tried and tested place where my entire family has bought wedding lehengas from. If you have done wedding shopping in Delhi, then you would know of the lehenga shop called ‘Anarkali’ in Karol Bagh. Shopping in Anarkali is not the most pleasurable experience but they stock really gorgeous lehengas and their collection is huge.Ten years later, I ended up in the same shop with the same women troupe and bought this gorgeous peach colour lehenga. Here is my lehenga story.

My brother’s wedding was a momentous occasion in my life. Finally, he was getting married and I couldn’t stay calm. The problem was that I was here in London with two young kids. I was itching to visit all the shops all over again and explore the latest wedding fashion scene in India. Sitting here in London, you only get a brief picture hence you need to be out there to see the stuff in its full glory. I really wanted to go and shop in peace but my little one was only eight months old. I knew that if I take him to India with me I won’t be able to do anything. So I took the hardest decision in my life and left the kids with my husband for 10 days. In this process, I did get some slack from the family but I didn’t want to regret the fact that I didn’t go. So I went on my epic trip to India.

I had only ten days to spare. My mission was to come up with a master plan of what I am going to do and when. The research and planning started in London. Mood boards were created and the excitement was full on. I had to organise my wardrobe, my sister’s wardrobe and much more. This process was a full-on emotional drama with lots of tears. After all the research, I narrowed down my ten-day shopping itinerary. I didn’t have a huge shopping budget so had to work within my limits. This was the rough guide I had to stick to but I modified it as I went along. On this journey, I explored some new brands as well. My main aim was to buy a nice lehenga for the sangeet function. I wasn’t very keen to go down the designer route due to budget constraints.

So here is my shopping itinerary, what I did and where I went. I hope you would find some of these notes useful. I also took a lot of help from wedding groups like Wedwise and WedMeGood. They are a storehouse of Indian wedding-related information. I visited all of these places below but didn’t like any outfit except a few from Christina W T which I loved. On the last day, my mum took me to Anarkali since they mostly do bridal lehengas. I was convinced that finding something for me would be challenging. Finally, we saw this piece above and both my Mum and Masi made me buy it. At that time I felt that I wasn’t making the right decision but I loved the peachy pink colour. I agreed to give in and chose the lehenga with some customisation. Instead of the chikankari material for the base, I decided to use raw silk. The final product is out here. I loved it but there is one downside to it. It is a bit heavy and I can only wear it on special occasions. Because of the weight, it becomes very difficult to dance in but it gives a grand look. The customisation was as per my brief and I was delighted when I first saw it.

Here is a detailed list of my ten-day itinerary in India. Hope you can find some pointers for your next trip.  

Day 1  – Visited the local nearby places. I went to Greater Kailash M-Block market to get sari blouse stitched. Recommended tailors in GK are Roshan Tailors and Eves Tailors. Another hidden find is a boutique place called Kavita Vanita (their facebook page is outdated but they stock some really nice pieces) They store some unique designs and customise it to your liking. Also, I recommend that you visit Yellow Stone for some stylish and modern Indian wear collection. I also paid a visit to my favourite GK- N block market where there are quite a few eclectic shops selling homeware and much more.

Day 2  – On the second day, I explored Hauz Khas market. There I went to Ogaan (a multi-designer store where you can find exclusive designer pieces. A few designers to check out are Monisha Thahryamal, Nikasha, Madsamtinzin and Ridhima Bhasin. I also paid a visit to Ashta Narang’s standalone store in Hauz Khan where you can book an appointment for a personal consultation. Astha is one of my favourite designer for light lehenga and bridesmaids look. Do visit her store next time you are in Delhi.   

Also pay a visit to Reasons Jewels in Hauz Khas village for stunning jewellery. Their prices are a bit on the upper end but you won’t be disappointed with the collection.

Day 3 – On day three I explored designer stores in Defence Colony – Anju Modi, Rohit Bal, JJ Valaya and Sabyasachi – and Manish Malhotra’s flagship stores in Mehrauli.

Day 4 – The whole day was spent in South Ex market exploring very well known names like Ushnak Mal, Anantam (Multi-brand store), Frontier Raas (nice bridal wear options), Aza. For menswear, we explored Divani, Gujral Sons, Manyavar and Study By Janak, all in South Ex.

Day 5 – Day 5 was dedicated to Shapur Jat. Some of the recommended brands there are Abhinav Mishra, Preeti Mohan (jewellery) Rani Pink Love (Wedding decor), Gazal Gupta Couture. Christina W T, Kanika Chawla, Kyra by Bhavna Bhatia and Ek Soot. Shapur Jat host some new and upcoming designers and you are likely to get things in your budget.  

Day 6  – After searching all markets in and around south Delhi, we made our famous trip to Chandni Chowk and Karol Bagh. I totally recommend Asiana Couture in Chandni Chowk for heavy bridal wear. Other recommended names are Om Parkash Jawahar Lal  Naya Katra (354, Naya Katra, 1st Floor, Chandni Chowk) and Dalmia fashion.

Day 7 – The day was spent in exploring a versatile exhibition in Delhi called the ‘Akshay Pratishthan Show’. Exhibitions in Delhi are a good source to explore brands from all over India.

Day 8 – I paid a visit to all of the famous designer stores in DLF emporio mall – a must visit place for all your bridal shopping and inspiration if you want to go down the designer wear route. Most top designers are based here. Do not forget to visit Ensemble -the multi-brand designer store

Day 9 – On my last day, I visited Khan market to explore  Amrapali and Shriharidiagems heritage jewellery stores. I picked up this beautiful maang tikka from Amrapali and it’s one of my prized possessions.  

The last day was spent in wrapping up things and finalising the outfits and orders.

There were a few other brands that I came across on my shopping journey and I have listed them here. Sue Mue,  Ilk, Mastya, French Darjee, Namah by Priyanka Duggal, Natasha Dalal, Payal Pratap, Prathyusha-Garimella, Little black bow, Abhinav Mishra, Kyelle official. I have tried to stay away from high-end fashion brands in this post as most of them are household names now. The purpose of this post was to highlight some great brands who are doing good work.    

Overall a very productive trip and thanks to websites like Wedmegood and Wedwise, I was able to plan through the madness of the Indian wedding industry.

I hope you find my suggestions and shopping itinerary useful. If you end up visiting these places in the near future then do share your experience. Finding this lehnga was one epic journey for me and it will go down as a golden entry in my fashion journals.

The Quintessential Red Lehenga For The Festive Season

Pic: A Few Good Clicks

Pic : A Few Good Clicks

 

Red bridal lehenga is synonymous with any Indian bride. It is a very traditional bridal wear colour and suits most Indian girls. These days, brides are ditching traditional red colour lehengas in favour of other colours. I was one of those brides who opted for a non-regal colour. I got married in the age of non-existent social media/inspirational wedding sites. Back then I did have a unique taste in fashion and was quite fussy about my choices. Because red was the go-to lehenga colour for most brides, I wanted something different, and thus opted for a coral/pink colour. Recently, for my brother’s wedding, I was itching to wear red for the wedding day and wore this beauty. This dark reddish maroon velvet lehenga is from one of my favourite designers, Jyoti Chandhok.

This post is about a year old but I just couldn’t find the right opportunity to share it. Now that we are are heading to the festive season, I thought it would be appropriate to share it now.

How I found this Lehenga

I was at Jyoti’s North London Studio where I was exploring some new designs for the upcoming wedding. After a few attempts of trying different things, Jyoti showed me one of her own personal designs – a red velvet lehenga with a gota border. I instantly fell in love with the fabric, and the quality of the gota border. These days a lot of lehenga designs have a gota border but the quality of the gota is very cheap. This particular one looked very regal to me and I decided to wear it on my brother’s wedding.

Once I decided to go ahead with the lehenga, the next step was to create the whole ensemble along with the choli and dupatta. I preferred to have something light so I could freely move around in my outfit. So we opted for a red brocade choli and a light net dupatta. I wore the lehenga on the the wedding day and danced my heart out in the wedding procession. I plan to wear it again over this festive season and if you want to have a glimpse of some more regal outfits from Jyoti Chandhok ,then come along to our exclusive festive tea party on 6th & 7th October.

Jewellery love from Viva Luxe

Last year I introduced a new Indian fashion brand on the blog called Viva-Luxe. In the past one year, Viva Luxe has emerged as a strong online Asian fashion brand catering to an international audience. They offer a range of designer clothing from suits to sarees and lehengas.

As an Indian woman living away from India, I am always interested in exploring new shopping venues for Indian clothes. I shop most of my everyday wardrobe online as it’s so convenient for me. Slowly Asian brands and designers are venturing into the online world and making Asian fashion accessible to an international audience. Viva-Luxe is one such brand which has really established itself in the online world. Right from offering free delivery within UK to custom fitting, Viva Luxe is offering impeccable service to all fashion lovers.

The website stocks some distinctive designer labels and has a beautiful collection for the upcoming festive season. Here are few of my favourite pieces.

Other than Indian clothes, they have a very unique jewellery collection featuring statement necklaces and earrings . I am sporting some of their jewellery on the blog and this is how I have styled it.

I wore this stunning statement necklace with a double breasted blazer style dress from Asos. Since this necklace was a bit delicate and feminine, I chose to pair it with a masculine outfit. This look could be apt for the upcoming party season. The necklace will look stunning with any black dress and add that glam factor.

Also have a look at another jewellery beauty. These emerald green earrings above are perfect to glam up any everyday look. I wore them with an off-shoulder white top. Green coloured accessories pair nicely with white clothing and add a bit more to your plain white top.

I hope you enjoyed the above featured jewellery. If you are looking for some Indian festive fashion gift ideas, then do stalk jewellery Viva Luxe here.

Indian Monsoon Wedding

 

Monsoon is considered the most romantic of all Indian seasons. The idea of getting married during this season is a daring one, given the logistics and the scale of Indian weddings. Fortunately I had a chance to attend a close family wedding in India during the monsoon season where it rained heavily and we had a lot of fun.

Indian weddings call for dressing up, dancing, mehndi, yummy food and much more. I love our weddings – they bring all the family members together from across to globe to a big family party. The bigger the family, the better dose of entertainment it provides. Every family member is unique and everyone adds their own special touch to the celebrations. We make memories for life and at the next family gathering we all laugh about the funny mishaps. Having my kids attend several weddings is also an amazing introduction to our culture. The best part is that they love it and want to be a part of it all. Hanging out with their cousins, partying till late and gorging on yummy Indian sweets will be a key part of their childhood memories.

Now let’s talk about the important bit. Choosing an outfit for a Monsoon wedding can be tricky as you do not want to end up wearing heavy fabrics/embroideries. Always choose lighter fabrics like georgette, chiffon, lace, net or crepe. Avoid velvet and heavy embroideries. You can choose bright colours but I prefer light pastel shades during this season. On the blog today I want to feature one of my favorite designers Astha Narang. She is a favorite designer for all new age brides and bridesmaids. Her designs are feminine, modern and sophisticated. She adds eye-catching elements to her designs by using embellishments and sheer fabrics. I had a great experience of collaborating and working with Astha in creating this white lehenga for me. I love it and am so glad that I choose this design. I styled the lehenga with kundan and ruby earrings and a silver clutch. Please not that the lehenga is light enough for you to dance your heart out at any occasion.

If you are looking for your next bridesmaid lehenga, then do stalk Astha’s designs here.

Anita Dongre and Sonam Kapoor at DIVALICIOUS LONDON

I recently went to DIVAlicious London which hosted renowned Indian designer Anita Dongre in exclusive soiree with Sonam Kapoor. After amassing cult popularity the world over in destinations such as the UAE, India, Kenya, Singapore, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Hong Kong and Indonesia, London played host to a unique, luxury boutique pop-up exhibition – ‘DIVAlicious 2017’ – on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March 2017 at The May Fair Hotel, London.

International film and fashion icon Sonam Kapoor graced the event. On the by-lines of the exhibition, DIVAlicious London’s partner The Rack – by Kachins presented renowned celebrity fashion designer Anita Dongre. Hot off the ramp of India’s Lakme Fashion Week’s Grand Finale, Anita Dongre has been at the forefront of fashion for over 20 years, having created one of the most successful fashion houses in India. A metaphor for supreme craftsmanship, Anita Dongre’s designs showcase Indian aesthetics in a contemporary language.  Inspired by Rajasthan and India’s rich craft tradition, her handcrafted bridal gotapatti lehengas and handwoven heritage benarasi creations are coveted by brides across the world. Anita Dongre’s commitment to revive, sustain and empower the Indian crafts and textiles led her to launch Grassroot, a sustainable and eco-conscious luxury prêt label. DIVAlicious London marked Anita Dongre’s inaugural London showcase. The event showcased Anita Dongre’s acclaimed collection “Alchemy” (A Magical Transformation).

Private banker turned full time fashion entrepreneur Vanitaa Bhatia launched DIVAlicious in Dubai in 2011.  This is what she had to say about the event “We had a resounding weekend in London with a great turn out. With the reception we received, I can immediately claim that we will be back again next year and hope to make it an annual spring affair for the fashion-conscious market that is London.  Our next step is Nairobi, Kenya!”

I enjoyed exploring the new Anita Dongre’s Lakme Fashion Week’s Grand Finale collection. It was stunning and the designs were very fresh and feminine. The good thing is that these designs can be bought directly from http://shop.anitadongre.com/. Do have a look at the website and you will find all the latest pieces there.

Embellished jumper for festive brunches


Festive jumper fashion blog img_3778 asian fashion blogger uk london asian fashion blogger uk london img_3803

img_3783

Who doesn’t love this time of the year ? Our inner child screams with excitement; festive clothing, festive makeup, parties, brunches and family gatherings. The merry time of the year is coming up, and we as girls have to be prepared.

However, Holiday season also means a lot of time spent in the house, as well as many cooking hours in the kitchen in order to please our beloved ones. So, why not please ourselves too in between, by attending some festive brunches with friends? Whether you choose eggs Benedict or avocado on toast, you have to be dressed with something that will boost your mood and make you feel beautiful and ready to celebrate. And what is better than a perfect festive jumper, like the one I’m wearing here!

A pretty festive jumper is the ultimate piece of clothing that instantly yells Holidays. It is also one of the easiest tops to style, as it makes a statement on its own and you just have to keep simple the rest of your outfit and accessories. The best part? These kind of jumpers go with anything; from your favourite pair of jeans, to denim or leather skirts. As you can see, I paired a navy embellished jumper, with a mid-length black leather skirt to add some toughness  to the look and simple ankle boots that dress it down for morning time adventures. The white shirt under the jumper, not only keeps me warm, but also creates a great contrast, enhancing the jumper’s pattern even more. A simple black bag will complete the look in the most effortless way.

Fortunately, the latest fashion trends call for sequins, glitter and sparkle. So, a jumper featuring any of these is an ideal option that turns your appearance into a stylish, chic and  super festive one!

Now you can enjoy being outside as much as staying inside! Stay beautiful and get ready to sparkle!
