THE POWER OF BELIEF
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla
|Swarovski Crystal Metallic Sunshine Abu Sandeep|
Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla presented a unique fashion tableau to open BMW India Bridal Fashion Week in association with Swarovski. The show and collections pay homage to Varanasi, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. Also known as Banaras or Kashi, this is a city steeped in legend, mythology, culture and history. The collections are designed to showcase the rich legacy of silks, brocades, gold and silver thread work carpet weaving that the city is renowned for. These magnificent traditional fabrics and motifs have found new expression through the dazzle & glamour of Swarovski crystals.
THE GOLDEN SHADOW
|Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow Tarun Tahiliani|
Tarun Tahiliani’s collection titled ‘Our Eclectic New World’ draws inspiration from the splendour of ancient India and melds it with the buoyancy, lightness, finesse and froth that are the trademarks of today’s generation. The opulence of Indian textile, powerful embroidery, rich craftsmanship in all its grandeur and sensuality, with the sparkle of Swarovski crystals designed for the time honoured wedding ritual is fused with the tastes of new generation Indians who prefer comfort and fit.
THE ROSY SIDE OF LIFE
|Swarovski Crystal Blush Rose Jyotsna Tiwari|
Jyotsna Tiwari’s bridal collection for this season presents modern ensembles with ideas of traditional roots and a contemporary outcome. Dreamy, poetic, romantic, lustful, this collection celebrates romance and is meant for every girl in love. The collection titled ‘Secret Garden’ with the soft, romantic details not just have the novelty of the bride or bridal but is meant for all evening occasions for a young woman. With a color story of Peach, Pink, Coral, Gold, Red and flowers motifs, the collection is glimmering with embellishments from Swarovski crystals.
THE ART OF EXPRESSION
|Swarovski Crystal Paradise Shine JJ Valaya|
The Bolshoi Bazaar by the master couturier finds its soul in two of unique cultures: India and Russia. Combined with the energy of Valaya’s constant inspiration India and this time with Russia, the collection traverses the large extent of Russian boundaries. A modern, yet distinctly Indian with characteristics of Russia, the collection in signature weaves, Crepes, Georgettes and other fine fabrics with the sparkle of crystals from Swarovski creates a perfect blend of the past and today's contemporary chic.
Gauri and Nainika
|Swarovski Crystal Pastel Pearl Gauri and Nainika|
Fall 2015 Haute Couture is a whimsical arrangement of vivid prints and floral textures in floaty and light shapes. Intense bougainvillea textures, airy voluminous skirts, bodices with sharp modern cut outs, circular flowers, dresses in sheer organza and tulle, iridescent pearls in pastel colours, all beautifully complemented with the extravagance of Swarovski crystals add a sweet dream like quality to the collection.
|Swarovski Crystal Diamond Leaf Flatback Rina Dhaka|
Rina Dhaka’s collection is inspired from Ferns and Petals, propelled by the freshness, youth and beauty of flowers. Collection embellished with Swarovski crystals was one of the key highlights as it set the stage for glamour and added a vibrant palette to the styles by offering sparkle to the floral motifs.
Shantanu and Nikhil
|Swarovski Crystal Patina Shantanu Nikhil|
Shantanu & Nikhil presents Autumn/Winter’15 Haute Couture “The Mahal” or The Palace inspired by mighty architecture, inspiring culture, divine royalty and inviting glamour. The silhouette is inspired from the strong yet controlled structural architecture, which brings out precious assets throughout the collection, in its stylishly varied forms, epitomizing glamour, sexiness and sophistication. The textures derive their distinct character from the earthy tones of the fort walls, further transpiring into intricate layers of laser cuts, flowing into the exquisite interiors of the “Sheesh Mahal” , brought to life by immaculate usage of Swarovski Crystals.
|Swarovski Crystal Rose Gold and Light Chrome Suneet Varma|
"We are proud to be associated with the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week for the first time. We have partnered with 8 designers, to bring that added touch of glamour, elegance and finesse to their couture creations. Beyond the usual dazzle and sparkle, which we bring to the ramp, this time we have worked closely, over several months, with these designers to provide them a canvas of innovative new products with matte finishes, delicate opaque colors, lacquer coatings in subtle pastel shades, vintage coatings and beautiful iridescent dual shaded crystals and pearls. It is a heady concoction of the most creative couture ensembles from these designers, using the Swarovski canvas, which is set to make the bride, and everyone else present, feel uniquely more special and glamorous at each memorable occasion during the wedding.
We are also happy to announce the launch of our new Ingredient Brand to help consumers verify authenticity – to be 100% sure on whether a garment or other finished product is indeed using Swarovski crystals, you should ask for the “Crystals from Swarovski” tag. The tag is manufactured in Austria, and comes with a hologram of the Tyrolean Alps on a silver foil, with a signature from Daniel Swarovski, and also a tracking number which can be used on www.swarovski.com/crystals for verification." - Vivek Ramabhadran, Managing Director, Swarovski Professional India
( This is a feature commissioned by Swarovski India)
Until next time :)

Our journey with Raymond Linen started with a pretty box from Raymond containing two Linen scarves, one Indigo and one with a Floral print .... along with a Sandalwood and Mogra handmade natural Soap bars, and a divine Champagne and Passion Fruit wax candle ... all wrapped up in a trademark Raymond long box :) .... Raymond had recently launched a hundred percent pure Linen line of fabrics ... and they had sent us this beautiful gift to showcase their new launch !! ... The scarves are richly coloured with scalloped edges, and we have been putting them to good use wearing them around town .... As a result of a thank you conversation, the good folks at Raymond invited us to The Raymond Shop at Breach Candy, Mumbai to experience the fine fabrics and their latest products first hand !! .... In our previous post, we had written about Raymond's collaboration with designer Suket Dhir, who calls Linen a "free spirited fabric" .... Imagine our delight, when Raymond asked us if we would like to style Linen as a garment made out of their latest range of fabrics .... If you have been following our blog posts, you would know how much we have fallen in love with Linen, after our up, close and personal encounter with the fabulous team at Raymond .... So we gratefully took up on their offer, and got in touch with Suket Dhir, to collaborate on a design for our own personal style story !! .... Needless to say, the clothes are completely us, and we are very indebted to Suket for infusing us with the feel, the structure and fall of this beautiful natural fabric ... After all, what's real feels real ... Presenting Raymond Linen 2015 in collaboration with Suket Dhir and Delhi Style Blog :)

Raymond recently launched a hundred percent pure Linen line, produced from long staple fibres, that is offered in a wide range available in counts of 44 Lea to 150 Lea (finest in the world) ... The launch of Raymond Linen 2015 was announced with an exclusive collection by our friend and fashion designer Suket Dhir, who calls the Raymond Linen range a "free spirited" fabric, just like him :) Linen is a live Natural Fibre that comes from the Flax plant .... which grows all over the Mediterranean region and Central Asia .... Pure linen sheets were a luxurious trousseau choice of the Anglo Saxons famed for their flaxen hair ( golden or blonde, the natural colour of linen) ... and they used to pass on their "linen" on to generations after them because of its durability !! .... Even ancient Greece and later, the Renaissance Italians considered linen a symbol of luxury ... Linen is a complete lifestyle by itself !! …. And no Gentleman’s wardrobe and home furnishing is complete without the finest linen … be it the ancient Greeks or the modern suave Indian !!
So what are the properties of Linen as a fabric, that has made it so famous in history ? .... Many and plentiful says team Raymond, on our recent visit to The Raymond Shop, for the unveiling of Raymond Linen 2015 ... We hope you have caught up with our tryst with Raymond in this article HERE and HERE :)
