Mumbai, Aug 12: Ace designer Manish Malhotra says that he is excited to debut in cocktail dresses for women and bespoke suits for men with his show at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2017 that will start from August 16 at the St Regis hotel here.

“My LFW collection Tales Of Indulgence will be much different from all my previous collections. The collection melds together traditional embroidery techniques and motifs with the label’s signature glamour to create festive ensembles with a global appeal, yet distinctly Indian in their form.

“Its the first time I’ve curated a collection that includes cocktail dresses,” the designer told IANS.

Talking about the silhouettes, he said that it will be much different now.

“It’s more young, more colourful, more black – a colour that I’ve never used this extensively before for women. With this collection, we’ve taken a step forward in terms of innovation and design by introducing bespoke suits for men – a bespoke tailoring service that will also be available at our flagships store in Mumbai and New Delhi,” he said.

“For women, the collection will be curated in myriad fabrics, including handcrafted detailing and beautiful embroidery. The entire collection is being presented with Nexa and it has entirely been devised and designed using the recently launched Apple iPad Pro,” he added.

Malhotra is also going to showcase bespoke suits for men for the first time.

“After a successful menswear show at LFW a few seasons ago, the new collection ‘Tales of Indulgence’ is a step forward through a renewed focus on the segment.

“With this collection, we’ve taken a step forward in terms of innovation and design by also introducing a bespoke tailoring service that will be available at our flagships store in Mumbai and New Delhi,” he said.

Talking about associating with the designer, R. S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki said “We are delighted to associate with LFW Winter/Festive 2017. The platform offers a platform for designers to create new styles and trends. This encapsulates a dose of entertainment, style, celebrity glamour spell, which is a vibrant hub of experiences and complements the ideologies of the brand.”

Punjabi suit Patiala Lohri

New Delhi, Jan 11: With the Lohri festival approaching, it’s time for all you ladies out there to begin your fashion fiesta. Dont let the chilling weather take away the enthusiasm of the festival. Whether it is an Anarkali or a straight-fit kurta, go out there and have fun.

Designers Prarena Grover, of the brand Prarena Grover, and Ritu Yadav, of the brand Hyacinth, Clothing and Jewellery, lists ideas to jazz up your festive wear.

* Typical patiala style: This has been a favourite over the years, especially amongst newly-wed brides. Don a Punjabi-style patiala salwar kameez in bold colours with traditional zardozi work. A knee-length patiala suit is the ideal choice.

* Anarkali suits: This look is popular among fashionistas right now. It is an excellent combination of ethnic style and ease. You can pick an anarkali piece in bright hues. This voluminous outfit is high on grace and has a warmth attached to it.

* Long kurta with straight pants: If classic patialas or anarkalis are not your thing, then you can settle for a long kurta and straight-fit pants. With this style you are sure to set a new fashion trend for the Lohri function. Try a georgette or silk long-shirt with embellishments and team it up with patterned pants.

Everything traditional is the new contemporary

wedding bride jewellery

New Delhi, Jan 9: Most modern brides these days are opting for a traditional look for their wedding day rather than a contemporary one but if you want to give a modern makeover to your traditional designs, try out some evergreen pieces.

Shreedevi Deshpande Puri, Head of Design at Ganjam, lists down some trends:

* Golden Heritage: The traditional south Indian ‘Kundalavellai’ style of jewellery is being revisited by brides. Beautifully crafted in closed set 22 carat gold, these pieces showcase the beauty of rubies with accents of emeralds. Few Jewellery houses take pride in continuing this tradition which is becoming very rare.

Brides are looking to wear traditional pieces which could be family heirlooms or new pieces crafted keeping the integrity of the design and the craft. Unusual pieces like the Talai saman (set of head ornaments), The Vanki (arm band) and the Odiyanam (waist belt) are coveted.

* Wearing a legacy: Going back to the roots, this style of south Indian closed set diamond jewellery is seeing a growing popularity among young brides, especially for the wedding ceremony. A new take on this would be inspiration-based collections which is a break-away from the limited designs.

Tarang Arora, Creative Director and CEO of Amrapali Jewels, speaks about his favourite.

Whether it’s the Indian bridal Nath that has been passed on by generations of brides or the Maangtikka or Mathapatti that are now in every bride’s trousseau, no Indian wedding can be complete without these traditional elements.
