Suneet Varma's ‘Decorative Arts of India’ Spring Couture 2015 show for Lakme Fashion Week draws inspiration from the incredible traditional Motifs and Embroideries of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and the Southern states of India with Topkapi elements taken from the Mughal period .... With any other couturier, so many diverse elements would be mind bogglingly difficult to pull off ... but trust Suneet to set the right grandeur for his show sponsor Reliance Jewels crown !! ... As a brand, Suneet Varma Couture has been showcasing spectacular collaborations time and again, and his Couture show at a mainly Summer Resort Pret Fashion Week must have been a super welcome for the May June brides who are even now putting their trousseau together !! .... This is one aspect of Indian Fashion Weeks that differ vastly from the International ones ... Bridal couture is required according to the Marriage Muhurats in a calendar year and the upcoming months of May and June is heavy duty bridal season requiring ensembles for all the elaborate functions Indian marriages entails ... be it a resort beach wedding, a royal palace wedding or glamorous bachelorettes and cocktails in jet set destinations !! ... And Suneet Varma Couture is one of the go to ateliers for any bride, bridesmaid or family ! ... The ensembles he showcased for his Spring couture line superbly complements the Rajasthani Kundan, Junagarhi Polki, Filigree, Nakashi and temple jewellery that he styled with such a master eye ... For the modern Indian too, he offered stunning separates in the form of corset blouses as crop tops, cropped jackets, shirt dresses, short tunics and capri trousers .... Our absolute favourites no doubt is Rikee Chatterjee's cape with trousers (third look), Sanea Sheikh's abstract mirror work jacket (look 18), Alesia Raut's long navy coat with hand embroidered mirror work jaal (looks 25), Sucheta Sharma's blush pink saree ( look 29), Candice Pinto's divine white on white ( look 32) and that deliciously pink and peach lehenga Rikee C rocks (look 34) !!

What could be better than repurposing Pepsi bottles into something that helps people who go without the most basic of human needs, such as electricity and light ? .... Pepsi is literally helping bring people out of the darkness and into the light, and that is something I can stand behind with conviction. - Nicola Formichetti

Yellow is the colour of Summer 2015, Manish Malhotra told us at his preview for his upcoming Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015 on 18th March ... His diffusion line, currently in store, carries beautiful shades of yellow from the palest ripe lime to mustard honey ... For our Holi special, we decided to feature a beautiful mustard Kalidar set with a draped dupatta and churidar pants ... The upper tunic has mirror work on the collar and sleeves ... Manish is a master revivalist of traditional Indian silhouettes and his Kalidar suits are as famous as the celebrities who are often seen wearing them ... The Kalidar was most popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, and it saw a revival again during the 50's and 70's .... The seventies trend is strong on the Fall Winter 2015 international runways too ... And we decided to present a simple ensemble from Manish's diffusion line ... India's first dedicated Diffusion line .... which is equally appropriate for formal or informal occasions ... The beautiful fluidity of the garment coupled with the occasion of Holi ... the last full moon day in the Indian lunar month of Phalgun announcing the end of winter and heralding the beginning of spring ... made us attempt to create a palette of spring ... a palette of romance and longing .... when hearts yearn in commemoration of the divine love between Radharani and Lord Krishna ... The styling concept is from the classic films of the 1950's ... the era of Madhubala, Asha Parekh, Nargis, Meena Kumari and Waheeda Rehman .... where beauty lay in simplicity, innocence and a certain gracefulness of manner, both sartorial and physical ! ... We present to you, dear readers, a Song for Holi ... through a selection of the most beautiful lyrics that haunt every Indian soul to this day :)

Today, even as luxury label Fendi announced its debut Haute Couture show which will take place in Paris Haute Couture Week in July … the internet is buzzing still about the Fendi Fall Winter 2015 Ready to Wear collection presented yesterday at Milan Fashion Week … Silvia Venturini Fendi said that the collection was inspired by the 20th century Swiss geometric abstractionist artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s sophisticated geometric abstractions which reflect the interplay between colour and form … This is Karl Lagerfeld’s 50th year of collaboration with Fendi and the master multitasker fashion legend sent down architectural silhouettes and geometry transformed into patterns … not only in autumn hues of black and rust … but also stunning winter pastels on the runway !! … Our favourite looks are definitely Kendall Jenner’s puffy short jacket with mini in shades of patchwork rust … all the patchwork furs and leather panelled midis … and the absolutely luxe, Lindsey Wixon’s closing fur !!  … Sam McKnight’s undone French twist ponytail and ruched leather headbands … and Peter Philips's graphic make up with cloggy mascara laden intense eyes totally complimented the jugalbandi of precision and volume of the clothes ! … In the accessories, we spotted the new Fendi Crazy Carats watch … the latest Fendi Peekaboo bag styled with Bird of Paradise flowers … the new Karlito bag charms ( mini Lagerfeld head topped with a Mohawk ) and key chains (personalised with initials, Lindsey’s had L and W ) … and the retro cat eye sunglasses … The shoes had elaborate Perspex heel constructions that looked like sheep hooves and we absolutely lust for the calf length fur cuffs … Do take a look at all the Runway looks and Closeup details :)

Nyx, Goddess of the Night, is the primordial Mother to other deities in the Greek pantheon and is seen rarely as a presence and mostly in shadows of the world ... Gaurav Gupta Couture 2014 collection takes place behind a wink of that Goddess, born of Chaos and terrifyingly powerful in her beauty .... This is our ode to the fantasy realm of ace couturier Gaurav Gupta's mindscape .... couture represented and populated by the young, the restless and the dreaming .... Here the shadow of Nyx is glimpsed through her great great grandson Pegasus, the divine winged stallion that rides the young sky of Uranus ... Gaurav's exquisite piece is married to wool yet unknit, yet undreamed into garments of structure .... The spirit is wild, untamed ... yet finding the warps and wefts of life that lines a journey into adult years ... Time, the shuttle will weave the loom ... but for now, let's dream !!
