Its raining wedding shows and exhibitions in Delhi – Believe me! Earlier there used to be 2 to 3 shows or exhibitions in the capital, but this year it has toppled like 2-3 big events per week- thanks to big fat wedding concept of ours. Though its good to be competitive, maintaining good quality is equally important. Hence I became choosy in covering the events and picking the stories for my blog. During recent Indian Wedding Show, Rohit Bal showcased his everyday couture, which caters to bigger market- bigger audience, which aspire or dream to have a Rohit Bal ensemble in her/his wardrobe, in their not so huge budget.
Ace designer Pallavi Mohan recently launched her first flagship store at Qutab Boulevard, Mehrauli, one of the most sought after, serene destination for designers right now. Continuing with her brand name Not So Serious, Pallavi shows some really serious depth in the designs as well as the decor of the store. Nestled among the perfect mix of brick and mortar , and nature with a lovely view of Qutab Minar; the store gives you an experience of class and taste. I feel that this destination is the next big thing as her neighbors include Ogaan, one and only Rohit Bal, and Rahul Mishra.

On day 3 of Fashion Design Council of India presents India Couture week, we witnessed some timeless pieces of couture which could be passed to generations. There were mix of handloom and exotic fabrics to make the person wearing the couture feel elegant and royal at the same time. Have a look:
I am a proven handloom lover! I love to watch weavers weaving fabrics, sarees and see divine in the process. This year has been a great year for handloom, and the weavers. Not only Government of india is doing a great job, the ace designers of India are doing a commendable job by making their high end collection. By this the handloom is reaching to the elite and whos who of India, and in turn will be followed by one and all. The beginning looks so promising, that I feel that it will bring good fortune for weavers and will refrain them from abandoning this lovely art form.
Keeping the Guru Shishya Paramapara in continuation, FDCI and Amazon dedicated the Grand Finale to Guru Tarun Tahiliani and Shishya Amit Aggarwal. Amit started his creative journey with Tarun Tahiliani, and learnt the art and imbibed it with his original ideas. As we learnt while growing up, that a Guru is most pleased to see when his disciple does extremely well in respective field. Same I saw in the eyes and gesture of Tarun Tahiliani, as he gave the beautiful nature inspired ramp to Amit first.
Amazon India Fashion Week, day 2 started with historic show of Samant Chauhan. By historic I mean, that he has chosen a place, and got the approvals as well, which is never thought of before. Its a old Railway Museum, with all the old and state of the art coaches and engines used during the era of British colony, and post independence.
