As a lot of high street brands and even designers are exaggerating the b&w stripes trend, French Connection India is one label which is focusing on the perfect silhouette and celebrating femininity to the fullest. Following the French Connection India’s last few trends I was actually impressed seeing a whole new lot, with very rare sight of repeats from the last collection. A couple of days back I was invited over to review their SS’13 collection. To make it a whole new experience I came up with 3 different day to night looks from their latest SS’13 collection. Check out the crazy video RashNair shot during my review : DAY to NIGHT  3 looks & 1 collection LOOK 1 – Semi-Formals LOOK 2 – Casuals LOOK 3- Casuals French Connection has always been a one stop solution for various moods of styling. Not just the styling part, but they have various color palettes, prints and cuts to suit every mood. The most eye catchy part were the color blocked garments, crochet and neon. Will I check out French Connection India again? Of course. Every season! 😉 You can now shop online at : FrenchConnection.in

Lifestyle : Absolut Vodka Happened!

A few days back I was invited to experience an unusual vodka experience. I usually don’t fall for booze parties, but this was not just any booze party, but an exciting fusion of  Chemistry weds Alcohol delivers Amusement! About PCO, The Venue! Nestled in the secret hide out of Vasant Vihar, PCO, the concept was as interesting as the venue. PCO can barely be figured out if you are a newbie, and difficult to spot if you don’t ask the locals. The entrance is literally a PCO (Telephone booth), where you are suppose to enter in a code to let the doors open! I felt like a harry potter scene coming to life, the portal to the magical world through a PCO booth! ^_^ What an Idea! The concept was brainstormed by Absolut Vodka geniuses, making even non Vodka lovers interested. Presented to us were tables full of 200 International ingredients, from exotic fruits to basic spices, we had crazy likes of wasabi and bacon flavored liquor. Another table was filled with chemistry lab equipment which made us more curious to start with. The idea was to let our Frankenstein sides get to work and create one hell of a monster drink! The aftermath! Our creations have been preserved by Absolut Vodka team, while we have been handed over a labelled “handmade card”. During the Unbox event  2013, scheduled from 7-10th in Delhi, we can present our card at the Absolut Vodka Bar, and get to taste our evil creations. (Wonder how will mine turn out to be! ) Check out the crazy moments of Absolut Unbox! My creation : Dil(i)ruba Symbolizes the elements of Delhi like Rose, Paan, Orange juice, Mint and much more…! I had an awesome time being a part of this Absolut “Unique” experience. If you had a chance, what ingredients would …

Autumn Winter 2012 (AW’12) This year is all about bright colours, shimmer, embellishments, faux fur and lots of laces and crochet. Don’t be surprised as the above mentioned are just few from the list of AW’12 Trends on both national and international grid. Working as an Assistant Stylist with Vogue’s Style Guru “Aaditya Walia” has helped me do my homework right! And to present the worthy efforts right, I have come up with Autumn Winter Shoot Series all this season. Shot by my professional photographer and friend Rashmi Nair from RashNair, I present to you the 1st shoot from AW Shoot Series. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
