Opium Dream: Sabyasachi Delhi Couture 2013 Collection

Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee showcased his opium-inspired collection last week in PCJ Delji Couture Week. It’s been said that this collection took him around two-and-a-half months to create and the inspiration comes from the 1920’s era.

The collection included a variety of fabrics – khadi from West Bengal, lots of tulle from France, velvet, lace and so on forth. The entire collection was very evening and glamorous. The colors were soft and muted.It was a lot of monotones and liquid golds as the fashion scene moves away from contrast. The collection included an array of silhouettes in addition to sarees. Jewellery included collectibles from the 1800s and 1900s.

I can’t stop drooling over the beautiful collection and dreaming of one day wearing a Sabyasachi saree to my wedding.

IBFW 2013: Rohit Bal

Indian Bridal Fashion Week 2013 wrapped up this week and I have to say Rohit Bal stole the show. I wish i was there front and center in India to enjoy the real beauty of Indian Fashion. But for now, I can share these images of the pieces from the collection. I know i always focus on the bride, so today I’ll be shedding some light on the groom. You can take so much inspiration from the pieces, i love the roman inspired flowing designs of the mens sherwani and i love the rich texture and colours of the collection.

Sponsor Love: Toronto’s CTC West

So, i finally got the time to visit the gorgeous and phenomenal newly opened CTC West Boutique store. Owner, Gaurav gave me private tour and I was floored by all the great pieces. I want it all. There’s a little something for every bride and her bridesmaids. What i love most about CTC West and in particular Gaurav is the stupendous customer service. Every bride that walks through that door is given the utmost attention, you get honest feedback and it’s far from cookie-cutter designs. You can find anything from lengha’s, sarees to salwar’s.

The store is divided in the multiple sections with the full bridal collection at the end of the store with multiple mirrors, for a full look at the your wedding gown. Walking through the store, you completely forget the simple troubles of wedding planning and thoroughly enjoy the beauty of being a young woman.

And, if you don’t live in Toronto, don’t fret. CTC West works with many international clients and meetings are held through skype and all the fine details are discussed and confirmed before each wedding lengha is custom-made.

I can’t marvel much more about how gorgeous each gown is masterfully made, and the images i captured certainly does little or no justice to the actual pieces.

If you just got engaged and you’re the whimsical bride, elegant bride, destination bride…. and list goes on – stop by CTC West for a bridal experience that every bride deserves.
