I am a massive fan of Ritu Kumar. I absolutely love the classiness of her pieces, the rich fabrics she uses, and the simplicity and elegance of her designs. Her pieces look amazing on the the woman who exudes grace and beauty.
This year the collection is focused towards the traditional Varanasi style. She used vibrant colours and rich fabrics, and she style the collection with a Western edge.
Can I have one of everything please? Those silk sarees are to die for!

I'm in love with mirror work. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla did an amazing job using pastel colours with stunning embroidery - perfect for the sister of the bride/groom. I noticed mirror work slowly coming back in to trend over the last year, and have seen it not only on Indian clothing, but also on a few Western pieces (particularly a stunning trench coat by Burberry with mirror work all over). and now it's on the runway! Many of the pieces in this collection took on a feminine and whimsical inspiration with stunning light-weight fabrics, and almost an ice-princess (yes I'm thinking Frozen through the use of colours and embroidery) look.
I particularly love the lilac lehenga with mirror work all over. How gorgeous! Stat tuned for more to come from the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive runways!

I've always wanted to go to the Red Bull Air Race, and this year we were lucky enough to get hospitality passes for this amazing event! It's a full day event from 11am-7pm that took place at Ascot and featured Air Racing, Apache Display, Wing Walkers and more! With delicious food and drinks on tap, it was everything I hoped it would be!

For me there's nothing better than getting together with the family for a yummy summer bbq! We always go with an Indian themed bbq with tandoori chicken wings, lamb chops, chicken tikka, sheesh kebabs and of course some paneer tikka and daal on the side. With the margaritas flowing and the sun shining brightly, it's the perfect way to relax.

My fashion inspiration always includes a mix of South Asian and western wear. The 70s play a huge role going into Autumn - from flared jeans, to suede items from boots to jackets to skirts! I'm in love with this decade and can't wait to get a few key pieces for my wardrobe.
What will you be wearing?

I was recently was invited to a trunk showing of Lila's eco-friendly clothing collection. The identity behind the brand is to create minimalistic clothing with rich craftsmanship. Using pure and natural locally sourced material from India, this clothing is laid back and so easy to wear!

A feminine collection featuring fabulous florals, Varun Bahl emphasized the hourglass silhouette with belted waistlines and high-waisted skirts. The perfect bridal collection, contrasting colours black and red are seen on many of the pieces making them really pop.
I'm in love with the mint green lehenga featuring 3D red floral embroidery. The colour is perfect for an outdoor summer wedding reception!
