Bridal wearWedding is the one time of life when the bride wishes to dress like a princess. But bridal trousseau has also undergone a change. Earlier, it was the bridal lehenga choli designed exclusively by the designers. Nowadays, things are changing and people are going back to the roots.

Designs With A Difference

Bridal trousseaus are no more confined to the once popular umbrella cut lehenga choli. More and more brides are open to experimentation. They are again going back to traditional clothing. Instead of spending a bomb on the designer lehenga choli or even sari, brides are opting for the regional look.

The brides of the day with well toned bodies prefer to flaunt their curves instead of being fully covered. Designers like Ritu Kumar and Sabyasachi believe that the bride should be the brightest of all in the gathering. More and more brides are opting for the Durga and Devyani Pochampally sarees for a chic and gorgeous look. Devyani pochampally usually comes in bright color combinations with intricate zari border.

Jewelry 2010The New Year is almost here and with it will come new fashion jewelry trends for 2010. The fashion jewelry trends for 2010 will be determined by many factors, but the writing is on the wall to predict what will be the market shapers for the upcoming fashion year. That being said, let’s take a look at what we think will be the fashion setting guidelines that will shape the new year.

1. International fashion with an emphasis on cultural uniqueness. A push towards using locally significant materials, that carry cultural weight. 2009 was all about exotic locations and ethnic fashion, featuring everything from tribal jewelery, African beads, seed beaded jewelery and more. For 2010 expect a more localized focus to feature your own native materials and beads.

2. 2010, in contrast to 2009 nine will be all about symmetry and coordination of clothing and jewelery. No longer will you be looking to call attention to your unique jewelery pieces with brash colors and shapes, but a more subtle use of your jewelery is trending in. Bold was good, now bold and stylish is the name of the game.

Bib necklacePerhaps it’s because of the poor economy or maybe it’s due to sensory overload, but fashion, in general, is taking it back to the basics. This season the current trend for jewelry is all about fashion fundamentals, with an emphasis on chunky.

Although statement necklaces are less of a classic basic and more of a recent trend, they are still considered the “must have” focal point to give your entire wardrobe a boost. Huge chains and bib necklaces continue to be great looks to go after.

These oversized ornaments can really dress up the clean lines of a simple night time look, but don’t put them away during the day. Reinvent your white t-shirt and jeans by adding your favorite attention getter around your neck. When wearing a statement necklace, keep the rest of your outfit simple, sophisticated and subdued…allowing the jewelry to grab all the attention.

Paper craftWhen the mind is your canvas, imagination becomes your brush. There are no limits to creativity except self imposed mind blocks. When you invest time in making a gift memorable it is even more important to choose the right gift wrap. Besides being unique and personal there is also innovation and exclusivity in making the gift stand out – the gift says loud and clear `it’s from you’!

There is a variety to textures to choose from. Kantha Bhattad of Paperage prefers handcrafted paper. She believes “a good handcrafted paper is made from re-cycled paper”, also they are eco-friendly as well as durable.

Kantha specializes in designer saree bags decorated with stones and laces to give a rich look. These bags can be gifted as it is or used to present a gift. She also makes paper wine bags which are in great demand during Christmas. 

Kantha recommends using plain corrugated boards for gift wrapping and by adding a splash of colours it becomes a myriad coloured wrapper. Also by using glitter paint on sand paper one can arrive at a glazed effect and that can be used on an ad hoc pattern on the board to give an ‘appliqué design’ look.
