Resort to Floral Embellishments!

Just like last year's resort collections, this year too designers have included 3D flower embellishments in their collections. But this time, instead of the big size flowers, more of small flowers have been seen concentrated in substantial quantity on skirts, dresses and jackets. I have always admired simple silhouettes with intricate surface designs and that is exactly what Resort 2015 has to offer. Flowers always look fresh and pretty, when they blossom off bodices as appliqu├ęs and rendered in lush fabrics. Blooming in flower power gives you that sweetness and incredibly feminine look. Whether it be pastel or bold colours, they'll look exemplary for garden parties and brunches.

All that Glitters is what you should wear for this Festive season!

For this festive season, have on something that glitters or has that shimmering effect on its surface. Sparkling gold tones will accentuate the festive mood in you and you would definitely stand out in the crowd. I have been looking through collections from various designers and what is interesting is that they have not only used gold for that shimmering look but also pastels, darker and muted shades. With embellishments in the form of sequins, cut beads and rhinestones, the outfit looks equally glamorous.

A long sabbatical gets over!

It's been a long sabbatical and a really long break from when I last posted. So, a welcome back to all my readers.

Today, I am sharing a dress that I made last summer. I was quite inspired by the Prada Fall 2012 RTW collection and hence I made a shift dress with embellishment inspired by the collection. I liked almost all the pieces in the collection. As Miuccia has said rightly, "This collection is about the pleasure of fashion and not any particular theory." Well, I quite admire her for this, as I am sick of theories too. There were futuristic fashion, embellishments, Menswear inspired coat dresses, power-dressing, seduction, and above all a feeling that a princess is wearing them.

Self-designed Magenta Embellished Dress
My self-designed dress has a shift silhouette and features embellishment in the form of rhinestones, sequins and beads. I chose a magenta suede silk fabric for the dress. I would love to wear this dress with a thin black belt and black pumps.

Orange with Blossoms

Apparently this is my first post of the new year.
So how was everybody's new year celebrations?
I bet it might had been a great soiree, no matter what, we all long for it.
My January went by in a jiffy.
Too many things and events happening one after another.
And so, I had to keep myself completely away from the one thing I love to spend time on, designing.
But I did complete this one thing I was working on.
I just bought a Plain Orange V-neck T-shirt from a retail outlet here, embellished it with lace flowers, sequins, beads and bows, and voila I have a DIY Embellished Top ready to wear at a friend's party.
Check it out ;)

Have a great year ahead fellas!
