Reinventing the saree is so much fun! Last time you saw me quirk up the Indian national costume with a cool bolero, (see here) this time I take it to the next level.
First thing first! Say hello to the designer of this beautiful saree and top *NIDA MAHMOOD* those who doesn’t know the filmy queen of the Indian fashion industry. Well if you are still wondering who am I talking about, its the same pretty designer who flaunts her trade mark flower power everywhere.
Indian kitsch being her muse and forte, Nida’s strong artistic sense when meets Indian kitsch produces clothes that depict the country’s culture in the most true and unexpected manner. Her use of flamboyant colours, focus on technique and simple aesthetics have been adored by both national and international audiences.
When I first met her and previewed her latest autumn winter collection I had a instant fondness for the collection and Nida of course :D. According to me the best part of her collection this season is the balance. The balance between quirky and classy. Also her experiment with various cuts and silhouettes. All these add a dynamic dimension to the whole collection.
So when you love something so dearly you have to flaunt it na! Hence this brings us to the STiLUM edition. A ensemble that I styled and wore to the just gone Wills India Fashion Week. Last time I replaced the conventional blouse with a bolero jacket this time I ditched the petticoat and wore a distressed denim instead !! Pallu twisted and wrapped around the neck as a scarf and a statement belt. Well the belt was more of a wardrobe malfunction saviour 😛
Accessorised it with my all new Amy Jackson bag, jewellery and cut out ‘flat’ pumps for my still sour foot :/
For hair, few twist, turns and pull back hair do.
Take a look!
