The Ultimate Inspiration Gallery for Indian Bridal HathPhool

Hathphools are an amazing accessory and one that has until recently been under-utilised as a bridal accessory. The sheer variety and styles that one can select from are mind boggling, with enough colours and styles to match with almost any look. Pair them with a lehenga or an anarkali, they are going to add that wow factor to both outfits.

Think of haathphools as the marriage between a bracelet and rings. The traditional style of haathphools are usually made from metal or metal and encrusted with uncut diamonds. The newer age styles feature not just floral patterns, but actual flowers and I think that is very cool!

I particularly like the floral styles because they are so pretty and full of colours. I do worry about them being too delicate and literally falling apart, but the use of faux flowers puts my mind at ease. Using bright coloured flowers adds a beautiful touch to an already vibrant outfit.

The inspiration gallery is a collection of the styles that I really liked and thought you would like as well. If you have other specific styles you’d like to see more of, then just let me know in the comments. I plan to have this post as a living one that keeps evolving as I come across new inspiration and styles!

Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai – Winter Festive 2014 – Part I

The Lakme Fashion Week is underway in Mumbai in India. Yet another fashion week I hear you say? It certainly is one more, but it’s exciting because Mumbai and this fashion week has been the hot-bed of Bollywood and the stars.

The designers from Mumbai, both who show there and the ones that are from there, are usually very well connected with the Bollywood stars and they get the stars to walk on the ramp for their shows. The show stoppers get as much attention as the clothes on the ramp!

This year, some Pakistani designers have also participated in the Lakme Fashion Week. A very welcome step, and one that got some beautiful styles to the Indian ramps. I love both types of designers, so for me this was very exciting!

The themes generally were very floral oriented. This did not make too much sense for an Autumn Winter collection, but certainly the styles are perfect for SS 15. Here are some of my favourite pics thus far – I have tried to balance the bridal and the non-bridal collections, since I LOVE bridal fashion but do have an interest in fashion obviously!
