PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week 2012: Teena by Hina Butt

Quite frankly, I hadn’t heard of Hina Butt until her name popped up in relation to PFDC. While I didn’t love her collection, I did like some pieces – especially the soft pink ones!

The shirt is shorter… dun dun dun! And is that a shalwar?

Interesting

I’m loving the colour

I heart!

PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week 2012: Fahad Hussayn

Although I love Fahad Hussayn’s work, I was a little disappointed when I saw his collection. No one piece stood out for me – which is a surprise because I really liked the sneak peeks of his Laaj Nagar Collection!

That’s a pretty ‘meh’ outfit if you ask me

I like this

I love the yellow. I want lots of yellow.

PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week 2012: Elan

It’s time to indulge our eyes with bridal fashion. YEAY! I’ll post a roundup of the highlights from the show but for now, here is one of my favourite new designers. I have come to love Elan’s collection.

Love the colours on this one

Pretty colours but I’m not loving the neckline – a little unflattering

How hot is the back? Too bad it’s way revealing for me!

Intricate! The colours and kaam remind me a little of Sana Safinaz

Simply elegant

Love it or seen the same thing too many times? Tell me what you think!


Highlights of Delhi Couture Week

I’m a little late in posting these images but married life is busier than I thought! With the exception of last Sunday, Nouman and I haven’t had a single weekend free in a looong time. Add our work schedules into the mix and we’ve got crazy long days. So yes, I’ve been busier than I was before the wedding – who would’ve thunk it?!

Anyway, here are some of the highlights from Delhi Couture Week! I’m totally into all the lace, black and white and full sleeves.

Manav Gangawi – I love the black and white. Especially the outfit on the right

Gaurav Gupta – I’m not a fan of the yellow/orange outfit but I love the colour!

Varun Bahl – Lace looks hot

Anju Modi

And lastly…

I can’t decide what I think about this piece from Shantanu and Nikhil’s collection. Definitely eye-catching!

I’m loving all the long open shirts with sharara – how about you?


Bridal Jewellery: Big Rings

I love rings! Especially the big rings that have been in fashion for brides. These days, it seems the bigger the better but I disagree. While I do love big rings, I’m not a fan of the ginormous rings that some girls/brides wear.

I knew I wanted a big ring to enhance the ‘traditional bride’ look that I wanted to create on the wedding day. Check out a picture of me at the end!

That’s me!

p.s. I’m hoping to get my pictures soon – can’t wait!!


The Veiled Bride: Me

Remember my Laal Dupatta post? Well, I’m finally here to enlighten you on what that post was all about!

On the wedding day, I wore a red “net” dupatta – it was a simple net dupatta with a thin gold border around it. Once the Nikkah was about to start, my sisters adorned me with a chaapi dupatta (the dupatta you see with the silver border). What in the world is a chaapi dupatta you’re wondering, right? From what I understand, the dupatta is called a “chaapi dupatta” because the design looks as if it’s stamped onto the fabric.

In my moms family, the bride wears a chaapi saree during her Nikkah. However, since many girls choose to wear sharara/gharara/lehenga’s, they put the dupatta over their head during the Nikkah. It was important to both my sister and I that we incorporate certain traditions into our own weddings. Hence, both of us used the same chaapi duppatta that one of my mom’s friend brought from Pakistan.

Nikkah time. The chaapi dupatta is on top and the red net dupatta is coming infront of my face

 

Do you have any similar traditions?

Deep purple and silver. What do you think? 🙂
