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.

When it comes to jewelry, I am always on the lookout for uniquely beautiful pieces. Jewelry is a form of self-expression, and I love mine embedded with semi-precious stones in all the colors of the rainbow. I look for high-quality pieces that can promise many years of wear (after all, many of my most treasured jewels are inheritance pieces from my mother and grandmothers).

I was therefore very excited to discover All That Dori, a contemporary Indian jewelry brand based right here in Dubai. You might have spotted me adorning ‘All that Dori’ on my Instagram feed.

Today I am introducing you to Bhavya Airan, the beautiful, creative young lady behind the brand. She tells us ‘all that’ goes behind the creation of a boutique jewelry brand, what inspires her design sensibilities, and gives us tips on curating a besotted collection of our own.

Art Karat by Indian jewelry designer Asha Kamal Modi has become synonymous with the glitz and glamour of Bollywood. This besotted brand has adorned the screens of ten major Bollywood blockbusters including Jodha Akbar, Ram-Leela, Devdas and Bajirao Mastani, and is a favorite with celebrities including Rekha, Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit and Tina Ambani.

Eid Mubarak all! I hope you had a wonderful time with your loved ones, and feasted like kings. Here is my little one, decked up in her Eid finery from Fayon.

I first came across Fayon at a Numaish exhibition last year. This Indian label specializing in children’s wear caught my attention for its gorgeous attention to detailing. From traditional Indian to a fusion of Western silhouettes, Fayon really knows how to dress up little ones and it is therefore no wonder that the designer behind this beautiful Delhi-based brand is a mother herself.

Today I am introducing you to the very talented Preeti Jatia, an interior designer who turned her talents into fashion once her two beautiful young daughters came along.

I too am a mother to a little 6 year-old, and Fayon was kind enough to send her this gorgeous silk lehenga last Eid. It’s her favorite outfit till date, and she has been nagging me to get her more!

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).
