Greetings fellows :)
I'm back after the first few grilling days at my internship. Human Rights is serious business and will always be my primary reason for having gotten into a Law School. Come weekend, and I treated myself to a sleep over with a BFF. This blog post is my 2 cents to spread the word about her induction into the fashion world. Temporary name for her line we came up with that night-Sonal Singhal Creations(simple, yet chic). We're going to give it some more thought though. She's forayed into primarily designing salwar,kurtas and sarees but she also designs some really chic dresses for her selective clientele. Since brooches of all sorts- stone encrusted, faux fur pieces, oversized flower brooches are all making a come back to adorn our little dresses and trenches, she's designed these adorable pink and blue brooches with fur details and pearls with swarovski elements.
Fashion tip 101: Dig into your mothers' jewellery lockers or heirloom jewellery. You're bound to find those gorgeous blingy, victorian looking brooches. I found those in my mother's possession too.
Back to the sleep over, S had fashion exhibition for Diwali(our GRANDEST festival) today and so we decided to ransack her collections' closets and model around in our homely little photoshoot, in preparation for her exhibition :)
The violet dress has the pink brooch tucked at the extreme corner and its really bringing out the color, me thinks. This is me in it.
The next picture is of the designer herself in her own creation, it has these graphically printed dolls right at the bottom of the dress and the colors really bring out the pattern. :) Take a look.
This mini-modeling assignment was followed by a lot of heart-to-hearts, sipping tea at the most ridiculous hours of the night and a lot of giggly bantering. I miss her when I'm away at Uni.
Back to the point, the exhibition was successful and the line will only get bigger from here on. Very proud of you, BFF :)
