#STiLUM: Seaside Muse With Shikhaya Studio


Today I am introducing a Indo-western label by a simmering designer named Shikha Yadav. This young, soft spoken yet enthusiastic at heart designer is a NIFT, Bangalore graduate who started her label Shikhaya Studio in 2013.

For starters, I totally love the name ‘Shikhaya’, doesn’t it sound so mellow and beautiful. When Shikha showed me some of her creations over coffee, I totally loved them as I could identify her individual sense of design. She is certainly not a sheep from the herd of designers with over the top blingy, heavy embroidered attires.
And her decision to associate with a blog in a way showed me her desire to make a mark in this industry as a designer who believes in her creations. Hence I was totally excited to be part of her ‘finding journey’

For me what sets Sikhaya apart from the crowd is the interesting use of fabric, spaced out minimal embroidery and varied styles in cut. In this collection Shikha keeps her colour story monotonic and works gloriously with pleats! She believes that silhouette is a form of an expression. And I think she should totally make this pleating style her signature.

Sheer, bling-less embroidery, that gorgeous mustard flaring in pleated silk and those dhoti pants for all the Indianness. All of it made the creation, am wearing today, an obvious choice for today’s post. She retails out of her studio in Gurgaon {all details below}.

To make things ever more charming am sporting some beautiful pieces from Zariin Jewellery. I have been on a look out for foot harness. To my disbelief not many make/retail it. Hence these layered, beaded neckpieces from Zariin made a perfect alternative for this purpose. I have been crushing over the idea of symmetry hence wore two identical rings on both hands. To complete the look I added another piece of jewellery, the neckpiece, from Loveforprettythings.com

I’ve always envied non-Delhi bloggers for the beauty they capture while shooting near the sea. So when I saw this little pond filled in this monsoon in Delhi, I knew I had found my sea and had to do a shoot before it dried out!
So as you may have noticed I mentioned monsoon and Delhi in the same line- the conditions were just worst to shoot! It was pouring, super humid, melting make up, frizzy hair! I almost finished a box of tissue paper while shooting. Hence I really hope you like these photos.

Take a look:
