South Asian Inspiration

For a while now I've been collecting images from various international photoshoots with a South Asian inspiration. I love seeing how South Asian fabrics, designs, and accessories are being used to style Western editorials and images. Below are a few I've found so far. Love the styling in the last picture.

Love these silk-knot Manolo's

India International Jewellery Week 2012 - Day 4/5

Day 4

Gitanjali Jewellers - Heavy hitter Gitanjali Jewellers blew me away with his absolutely stunning collection. Not only is the jewellery to die for, but the clothing is beautiful. Love the androgynous feel to Neha Dhupia's outfit and am in love with Bipasha Basu's entire lengha!

Clothing by Nishka Lulla and Payal Singhal.

Birdichand Ghanshyadas Jewellers - Very elegant jewellery with a cocktail party feel to it. Love how there's a layered look to these pieces.

Clothing by Nisha Merchant.

D. Navinchanra In Association with Kripalani - Love the colours in this collection. The jewellery really popped for me here with the floral inspiration and bright colours.

Clothing by Jashn.

Raksha Enterprises - The structured style of this jewellery is stunning and very different from the other collections. There's quite a bit of pure gold used throughout this collection for the more traditional buyer and jewellery with more of a contemporary touch for the modern. 

Clothing by Asif Merchant.

KGK Entice - Stunning contemporary jewellery that's light weight and extremely elegant. If you're not looking to overdo an outfit with unnecessary 'bling', then this is the collection for you!

Day 5

PC Jewellers - Called 'The Best of the Best', this show had the best designs from the IIJW 2012 all in one show with Madhuri Dixit and Sonam Kapoor stealing the spotlight!

Vogue India August 2012 - Kelly Gale

Model Kelly Gale models a very 70s inspired look with a futuristic edge. Definitely getting ready for the fall through the use of layering and jackets used in this photoshoot.
