Just three more sleeps before the Numaish Festive Fair! Scheduled to take place this coming Friday 23rd September till the late hours of Saturday 24th at Hotel Conrad (Dubai), the fair is a must-visit for shopaholics who are on the lookout for something uniquely different.
One prominent designer who will be showcasing her wares at the fair is Anita Kanwal. Best known for her endless list of Bollywood appearances and also a major hit on the Indian television screen, Anita has always been known for her immaculate sense of dressing.
It is therefore only natural she ventured into the world of fashion. I had a little chitchat with her on the eve of the Numaish Festive Fair.
Got the Sunday morning blues? Fret not, you have the Numaish Festive Fair to look forward to this coming weekend! From Friday 23rd to Saturday 24th September, the Numaish Festive Fair will showcase an array of on-trend designers at Hotel Conrad, Dubai.
One prominent label on the list is Surendri. Designer Yogesh Chaudhary already has an ardent fan following in India and online, and his is a collection you don’t want to miss.
Here is what he has to say about his stall at Numaish, his journey into fashion, and key trends we need to look out for…
Numaish, the curator of couture Indian fashion, is set to showcase yet another spectacular fair on 23rd and 24th September in Hotel Conrad, Dubai. If you are looking for unique fashion-forward Indian designer pieces, be in traditional or out of the box Indo-Western, this is a fair you cannot afford to miss.
The Numaish Festive Fair is showcasing a long list of prominent and upcoming Indian fashion designers, and one to watch out for on the list is House of Sohn. I had a wee chat with Sohni Patel, the very young and talented designer behind the very Indo-Western label. Read on about her journey into the fashion trade, what she will be showcasing at Numaish, and her top tips for keeping on-trend.
I had the pleasure of being invited to a very exclusive store launch late last month. Stile by Ghulam Ali is a besotted Indian fashion design label created by the very debonair, dashing brother duo Ghulam and Ali. Following the legacy of their father who owned a tailoring store by the name of ‘Stile’, the brothers developed a sense for fashion at a very tender age.
Their store in Cosmos Lane, Meena Bazar (Bur Dubai) is their very first venture out of India. The store launch was planned with great pomp and festivity. The entire cast of Bollywood’s latest flick, ‘Freaky Ali’ were also invited!
Numaish Exhibitions is back once again with a brand new lineup of exquisite new-season trends from India’s the hottest upcoming designers. The Numaish Festive Fair is going to take place in the weekend of 23rd and 24th September in Conrad Hotel, Dubai and is open to the public inclusive of free valet service.
I have been associated with the Numaish fair for 3 seasons now, and being a huge fan of boho and Indo-Western silhouettes, I always look forward to visiting the stalls. At Numaish, you are sure to find something extraordinarily different.
One of the designers who has been a regular at Numaish ever since I got associated with it is Suchita Pandey. Hailing from Jaipur, arguably the cultural capital of Indian textiles, Suchita turned her love for fashion into a very successful career with the launch of her label Suchita’s Stylista.
The quintessential Indian sari is an eternal masterpiece. Adorned by women of the subcontinent, the 6 yards come in a never-ending array of colours and textiles, and who better to talk to about it than the ‘Master of Weaves’ himself!
Gaurang Shah has earned this reputation in the Indian fashion fraternity, and will be giving Dubai a glimpse into his fascinating world on 17th September at the Opera Ballroom – Taj Dubai.
I had the honor of chatting with Gaurang right before his Dubai debut. Humble as he is creative, Gaurang gave me many interesting insights into the world of Indian fashion.
Known among his fraternity as ‘The Master of Weaves’, Gaurang Shah is a highly revered name in the Indian fashion industry. His besotted jamdanis, meticulously woven in all the colours of the rainbow, take up only a fraction of his masterful creations.
With an artful eye for immaculate detailing, Gaurang Shah has been instrumental in the revival of traditional Indian weaves, and his creativity has re-molded the quintessential 6-yard sari as we know it.
I really enjoyed playing dressup in the closet of Anisha Lalani, the creative genius behind the swimwear label Blue Ink Beachwear. We showed you how to expand the use of swimwear beyond the pool and the beach. With a little clever styling, you can take your swimwear to the boardroom, for a night out, and even make a fashion statement while lounging by the pool. Three looks down, I begged the girls to do a fourth. A boho chic at heart, I wanted to extend our play into this genre. It is really interesting to see how very different each of our 3 looks turned out to be!
Would you wear beachwear for a night about town? With the beautiful pieces from Blue Ink Beachwear, this is absolutely a ‘can do’. We showed you how to take swimwear to the boardroom (click here) and how to cover it up stylishly by the pool (click here). The girls and I are now back with the Night Out edition 🙂
Everyone has a pair of prized well-worn jeans, the kind that allows you to flex and stretch, and wear around the house, and even deck up for a night about town. But have you ever taken yours to the gym, let alone for a jog about the park? I think not. Conventional denim is characteristically stiff and rigid, but this has all changed with Replay’s brand new Hyperfree Active Denims.
