Those who don’t know the current India scenario, well the festive and wedding season is in full norm. Every corner of India is glittering with enthusiasm, happiness and lot’s of colorful love. Celebrating this season, many apparel and accessory brands across the country are pushing their ‘Festive Range’. One such colorful brand is BIBA. 
Located across various cities of India, this store has much more than the ‘ethnic wear’ to offer. Two days back I was invited to review the Festive Season 2013 collection from BIBA. A wide variety of ethnic wear, ranging from simple mix and match, to a goth inspired ‘Rockstar’ collection. The icing on the top, is the designer yet affordable collection from Rohit Bal for BIBA. 
Choosing my favorite looks was the most difficult task, as the collection had so much to offer. Still, I managed to score three looks which will suit every ‘Desi Girl’!
LOOK 1 : Simple and Chic

This look is meant for those, who like it simple yet elegant. The idea is to infuse in the traditional hues of blue and red, with a simple silhouette, and nothing fancy. The only shine of the look is the golden block print and the Banarasi style border. 
Tip : Team such a look with statement earrings, like I have adorned here. They not only keep the overall look festive and sober, but brings the right amount of drama required to justify the occassion.
LOOK 2 : Shimmer Queen

This look, from Rohit Bal for BIBA collection, is meant for those who love to live up the festive glitter. The right amount of shimmer print, infused in a sun-kissed orange semi-anarkali suit guarantees the spotlight on you. The bright contrast of this combination will make sure that you stand out in the crowd.
Tip : Go for jhumkas, or any danglers to add an extra punch of shimmer and glamour to this look.
LOOK 3 : Dramatic Glamour

This look has to be my favorite. The true essence of Rohit Bal’s design genius, this ankle length Anarkali suit will remind anybody of the legendary Anarkali (Madhubala). The layered silhouette, secured by a velvette embelished waist coat, and wrinkled dupatta will surely bring out the Mughal queen in you.
TIP : Since the apparel in itself is complete, avoid stealing the lime light of the embelished waistcoat, and go for a gold ring or maybe an ear cuff to conclude the overall look. Go for a donut bun or side braid to maintain the focus on the waistcoat.

APPAREL RANGE
Apart from their festive range, BIBA also offers a wide range of mix and match apparel; daily wear; rockstar range and girl’s range. They have a dedicated deisgner range, which has been designed by the legendary designer Rohit Bal, exclusively for BIBA.
COLOR SCHEME
My favorite part about this collection is the very fact that BIBA not only offers to bright festive colors, but they have a hint of goth in rockstar range, glamour in Rohit Bal’s range, neon hint in daily wear, and solid undertones in mix and match range. This store will make anyone happy.
So girls and ladies, if you want to wear something which defines YOU this festive season, do check out BIBA store in your city. I had a wonderful time reviewing the same, and will be going back to shop some more of what Rohit Bal has to offer. ^_^
