NEON has been BIGGGGG this season but to be honest not everyone can pull off a head to toe neon look. These colours are for women who are bold, confident and don’t shy away from experimenting. They embrace it, live it, and work it.

CHECK IT OUT !!

Meghna is a stellar example of how to rock this season’s Neon trend !!!

When Angelina Jolie’s leg stole the Academy Awards recently this year, who thought her thigh high Atelier Versace outfit would start a red carpet trend.

The temperatures outside may be dropping, but slit lengths are rising this season.

So we thought rather than spending mullah on designer high rise gowns why not raid your mumz closet this time 😉

All we had to do was manage to get a few obsolete housecoats and team it up with bold waist belts , tights and daisy dukes.

Here you go……

SNEAK PEAK- 9th Oct

The collection had a mixture of a flat view screen print as well as an array of digital prints which have been developed by taking a closer look at cell biology featuring the actual microscope slides of the harmless flora, which are presented alongside red blood cells, multi vitamins, vitamin c and glucose in an photographic setting. The microscopic slides appear as brightly coloured pieces of stained glass, or tiny abstract paintings.

Given the theme of the collection, this was quite a challenge but Ashish Soni moved out of his safety zone and experimented with colours and predominantly experimented with the cuts.

The designer indeed showcased the “revival of the peplum” in his collection.

SNEAK PEAK- 7th Oct

Manish Malhotra`s Spring Summer collection for 2013, `Mijwan Sonnets in Fabric`

Manish Malhotra’s show supplied the much anticipated Bollywood glamour with Parineeti Chopra’s presence on the runway and Shabana Azmi’s recitation of Kaifi Azmi`s poetry.

Indian Evening Wear,was what Malhotra focused on, As far as the tones are concerned he kept it very subtle with tones of ivory, burnt orange, creme, dull shades of red, pink and so on. I have to say the USP of his collection was the Chikankari and the intrinsic needlework by the Mijwan girls.

Coming to the Eastern coast I have to say that Suneet Varma had a Victorian tinge to his collection and whereas the duo Rohit Gandhi+Rahul Khanna emphasized on high rise slits.

Dutch Fashion, Now in India.

Last night Sunil Sethi along with Alphonsus Stoelinga (ambassador of Netherlands to India) marked the onset of Indo – Dutch Fashion collaboration at the Netherlands Embassy.

Dutch Fashion Here and Now in India (DFH&NI) is a three-year programme which has been designed by The Dutch government and FDCI. It shall provide an opportunity to network with their Indian counterparts leading to collaboration between designers, fashion photographers and people from the denim industry. (FYI Amsterdam is one of the denim capitals of the world and India has the highest number of denim manufacturers)

Just to give you a deeper insight, Suneet Varma and Dutch couturier Taminiau will work together to bring out a collection that will have an eclectic mix of Dutch-India combo. On the other hand the other designer duo Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna would be teaming up with DIED, (silk and jewellery label set up by Diederik Verbakel and Marieke Holthuis ) to set the runway ablaze,

So get set go all you Style Coquettes as both designer couples will showcase the first look of their collaboration at the Wills India Fashion Week (WIFW) on 6 October, tomorrow.

(Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City)

Remember when you swore you would never wear the boring calf length skirts/ dresses? Well now you might just want to wear them as the mainstay of the sensible woman’s wardrobe, the Tea length Skirt / mid-calf length skirt, has been an absolute surprise winner this season on all the international runways. Designers have shown that you don’t have to flash the flesh to look sexy.

So when I was thinking about what to wear for my Birthday I opted for a Vintage tea length skirt, because last month I was certainly obsessed with the SATC series and wanted a hint Carrie Bradshaw (SJP) in my ensemble. And guess what?? I ended up altering my Dior Dress (which my dad got me when I was all of 10) and made a high waisted tea length Skirt out of it. I teamed up my tea length with a black sheer top and a sequin corsage on my wrist to give it a finishing touch.
