For those who know me well, I’m a huge fan of personalised wedding and bridal shopping services. So, today it gives me so much pleasure to be having talented, certified image consultant, Meha Bhargava of Styl Inc to talk to us about Summer Indian bridal fashion for the minimalist bride to be.

Meha and her team have been catering to South Asian families from India and abroad for several years now. She has even travelled as far as Baku and Serbia to style her brides and grooms on the day of their wedding.

Happy New Year maharanis!

With a new year comes the perfect excuse to look back on the year’s achievements. For myself, it’s honestly been a year for celebration, growth and forming new partnerships.

I want to take this opportunity to feature snippets of our inaugural Sydney event. What a fantastic day it was with plenty of fashion, food, entertainment and laughs to share all around! Enjoy our coverage of Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice.

Ahead of the 2020 Indian wedding season, Anita Dongre launches her beautiful Winter festive bridal collection aptly titled, Jaipur Love.

Drawing on her love for the Pink City and craftsmanship, the designer’s ensembles are heavily inspired by Jaipur’s exquisite architecture, with its unique blend of Rajputana and Mughal motifs.

‘Tis the season for festivities and what better way to celebrate than with 3 vibrant looks styled by one of our favourite Indian fashion bloggers, Archana of Fashion For Royals.

All eyes are on you this Indian festive season, so as the blushing bride to be, breathe life into your wardrobe with a combination of winning outfits.

Archana has upped the glam quotient this year and given us loads of inspiration to not only rock during Diwali, but also over wedding season.

As brides, our main sources of inspiration these days are Instagram and Pinterest. This entails spending endless hours, scrolling through pages of gorgeous lehenga designs and yet you’re still just as confused as you were at the beginning!

Feast your eyes on the latest saree fashion trends for the upcoming Spring wedding season. Featuring designer sarees and blouses from Jyoti Chandhok and House Of Blouse, this Spring inspired fashion shoot was made all the more special thanks to some incredibly talented London suppliers.

We take you inside one of London’s most luxurious bridal shows. Now in its second year running, the Aashni + Co Wedding Show brings together some of the hottest names in Indian and Pakistani bridal haute couture.

Held at luxury 5 star hotel, The Dorchester, this year’s event drew in large crowds and featured exquisite designer wear from the likes of Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra and Varun Bahl.

Much like the business name, Aan’s diaspora appeals to the global woman; strong and powerful, yet graceful and feminine. She is a woman who values art and elegance and would never compromise on finesse.

We recently had an opportunity to catch up with director of Aan By Arti, Ms Arti Badhwar, to discuss her journey into the world of Indian fashion design.

At this year’s India International Jewellery Week, jewellery designers showcased exquisite and breathtaking bridal jewellery collections with most marrying the old-world styles with Indo-Western contemporary design aesthetics. So, we’re taking inspiration from this show and highlighting key trends that will shape your bridal trousseau this year.
