One day to go for the Numaish Festive Fair! Can’t wait to splurge on the latest in Indian fashion this Friday and Saturday. It’s happening at the Godolphin Ballroom, Emirates Towers from 11 am to 8 pm.

One of my favorite sari designers, Anavila will be showcasing her latest Autumn/Winter 2018 collection at Numaish this weekend.

Picture25The Numaish Festive Fair is taking place from Fri 28 – Sat 29 Sept at the Godolphin Ballroom in Jumeirah Emirates Towers.

As always, Numaish has curated an enticing lineup of the latest in Indian designer wear, and one of my favorite labels showcasing this month is Anavila.

‘Anavila’ translates to ‘pure’ in the ancient Indian tongue of Sanskrit, and is also the name of the founder of this beautiful fashion label.

My Insta feed is taking on a beautifully bright hue of yellow thanks to my brand new outfit by AM:PM.

The celebrity-loved Indian fashion brand by husband-wife duo Ankur and Priyanka Modi will be showcasing two never seen before collections entitled ‘Gypset’ and ‘Qalb’ this Friday and Saturday at Shangri-La Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road from 11 am to 8 pm.

Numaish, by far my favorite fashion exhibition in Dubai, never fails to impress the shopaholic in me looking for quirky Indo-Western finds that are anything but run of the mill. Numaish carefully curates India’s best upcoming fashion talents under one easy shopping roof, and this month you really need to save up to splurge at their AM:PM Fashion Trunk Show!

AM:PM is the brainchild of fashion design couple Ankur and Priyanka Modi (such a clever take on their names, don’t you think?). Their unique take on Indian fashion has won them a number of accolades over the years including the Elle Style Awards for two consecutive years (2011 and 12), and the title of ‘Most Popular Designer’ at the prestigious India Fashion Forum in 2016.

Rajasthan, the North-Western state of India, has a centuries-old repute for its traditional forms of art revolving around fashion. They gave the world the colorful, much-loved tie-dye (which became symbolic with the hippie movement of the roaring ‘free love’ sixties). Lesser known to the world is Rajasthan’s exquisitely prized form on Danka embroidery.

Like all little girls, my little one loves playing dress-up. She has a special liking for ‘twirling dresses’ like the princesses of Disney, and the very colorful Indian clothing of Bollywood (all of which she calls a ‘sari’).

At the Numaish exhibition a few seasons ago, I happened to walk into the stall of Fayon Kids. Based in Delhi, this brand of children’s clothing takes traditional Indian outfits for little ones to another level alltogether. Not only do they do the very traditional garb, but they also have Indo-Western pieces for little princesses, and even miniature copies of costumes seen on Bollywood sirens.

Fayon Kids sent this absolutely stunning lehenga for my little girl, and she’s been bugging me to let her wear it ever since.

The Numaish Winter Show is happening tomorrow! Can’t wait! It’s always a pleasure browsing through the stalls of their selected designers, and I have always managed to come home with a very unique piece.

Today I am introducing you to Anuj Bhutani. Do look out for his very wearable and oh so stylish pieces at the Numaish Winter Show (happening this Saturday at Murooj Rotana from 11 am to 9 pm).

Cheers to the long weekend! And if you are about to indulge in yet another round of retail therapy, you might as well splurge your wallets someplace outside the malls and grab a few uniquely stunning bargains.

Numaish is back with the Numaish Winter Show, and it is taking place at Murooj Rotana this Saturday 10th December from 11 am to 9 pm. Skim through the stalls of some of the best upcoming fashion designers from India, Pakistan, the UAE and the United Kingdom and stand out from the crowd in stunning ethnic and Indo-Western outfits that are guaranteed to ooze envy in your social circle!

One of the talented designers to look out for at Numaish is Aiman Agha. Following the footsteps of her father who specialized in traditional embroidery, Aiman went on to graduate from NIFT Delhi. Her style pays homage to traditional Indian embroidery, yet somehow manage to be boldly modern and perfectly befitting for the woman of today.

The Numaish Winter Show is set to take place this coming Saturday 10th December at Murooj Rotana. The exhibition is a great time to check out the latest in Indian fashion and stock up on trendy ethnic and Indo-Western pieces.purvi doshi

The exhibition hosts a long list of well-known Indian fashion designers, and one paticular designer I am especially keen on meeting (and hopefully shopping with!) is Purvi Doshi. Her self-named label has already created waves in the Indian fashion industry. Her pieces are traditional yet timeless, and the sole premise of her brand is sustainability, and being kind to the eco-system. I had a wee chat with Purvi. Read on to know more about her latest collection, her stance on Indian fashion and tips on how to stay ethnically and ethically chic!
