rohit bal couture 2014

A sea of ivory, gold and white, punctuated by bright orange and pink sherwanis and turbans. Rohit Bal has our attention. As we sift through all the photographs from India Couture Week 2014, one show stands out amongst the rest, and that is the understated yet bold collection by Rohit Bal. Presented as a media preview rather than a runway show, the focus was on a carefully thought out collection showcased on select models who could pull off Rohit Bal’s vision. Trends for... Read More


#TBT – Dr Zeus’ “Kangna”


There are some songs that are summer fads, and then there are those songs that become classics overnight.”Kangna” by British producer Dr Zeus was the soundtrack to some great memories from 2003 (and 2004, 2005, 2006…it was a classic after all). Story by Rumnique Nannar “Kangna” is a one of our all time favourite party songs. Simple beats, vocals by Master Rakesh, the tumbhi, and a hip-hop bass-line gets you on the dance floor grinding grooving. Dr... Read More

On May 23, 1914, a ship filled with Indians/South Asians looking for a new life abroad landed in the Vancouver harbour. They weren’t allowed to disembark and instead, after 2 months, they were sent back to the motherland. 100 years ago today, on July 23, 1914, the ship of would-be immigrants turned around for the return journey to India, where upon their arrival in Budge Budge (close to Kolkata), many were shot and killed while others faced imprisonment by the occupying... Read More

Rina Dhaka presented an eclectic collection of lehengas and ghararas that highlighted Rajasthani embroidery at India Couture Week 2014. Rina Dhaka skipped the runway and presented her bridal couture collection at an intimate media preview in Delhi. The use of Rajasthani-inspired gotta pati embroidery resulted in some hits and misses in the collection. Our favourite piece was the red and gold gotta pati lehenga with ivory net dupatta (above photo), which was styled elegantly with... Read More

Hello sexiness on the runway. Designer Anju Modi presented her “Manikarnika” collection of gold embroidered lehengas and saris, but it was the menswear that caught our eye. Inspired by the paintings of Ajanta-Ellora Caves, Anju Modi presented a collection that felt both contemporary and vintage in its use of colour, draping, cut and embroidery. Indian actress Kangana Ranaut (who we love!) has been Instagramming for Anju Modi at India Couture Week, and she joined the... Read More

Sabyasachi Mukherjee opened India Couture Week 2014 last night, and it was a gorgeous display of his signature style: opulent, nostalgic and minimalist styling. We like. “Ferozabad” by Sabyasachi Mukherjee was a beautiful show, set within a train straight from the history books. Sabyasachi is known for his nostalgic, regal collections that often nod to royal and colonial memories of beauty and romance, and this year’s couture collection is no different. But... Read More
