Check out some of Manish Malhotra’s Delhi Couture Week 2013 collection. He describes the collection as “set in the 1930s and inspired by cross-cultural ties that created a very unique genre of fashion and culture”.
What do you think? Personally, I’m feeling the men’s line more than the women’s!

I adore Sabyasachi’s new line Opium that was featured at the opening day of PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2013. Has anyone else noticed that designers are breaking the traditional red look for bridal lehngas lately? Love love love the gold sequins! #obsessed
So far, this has been my favorite look from India Bridal Fashion Week 2013. Love this non-traditional white and copper bridal lehnga by Rohit Bal and vintage Amrapali Jewels!
Amrapali is one of my favorite Indian designers, by far. They’re becoming very mainstream, with their Manish Arora line and now with their Amrapali for Lucky line.
There’s lots of blues in this collection, and the prices are targeted to be more affordable than their usual $1k+ prices, but not sure the designs scream “Buy me!”. More like, “Buy me because I am Amrapali!” What do you guys think?
Summer and wedding season is here, along with the heat as I am sure many of you have noticed! With summer comes the season for succulents (the heat is like being in the dessert…where there are cacti…you get the point). I have yet to see this at a South Asian wedding, and wish more brides would delve into the idea. I like the creation of mixing color into the different shades of green as done below.
How unique would a cactus/succulent inspired mandap be?
Or a backdrop like this…
And I know you have seen the succulent place card holders/gifts for guests, but how about inspired cupcakes? Awesome!
And gotta love this cake (and this one). Simple but satisfying. Anyone seen a South Asian wedding with cacti as part of the decor?
