Tarun Tahiliani at Lakme Fashion Week


Reliance Trends presented Tarun Tahiliani at Lakme Fashion Week 2015. Tarun’s pet collection has always been with digital prints. The bright colored imperial prints in soft flowing drapes and high head gear… The sun glasses were definitely needed, the colors were so bright and beautiful, definitely had a summer resort feel. They certainly put you in a holiday mood. Here are some of my favourite looks: Share this: Share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Click to share on...[Read more]

Tanya at Lakme Fashion Week 2015


Tanya does Singapore proud! Our own Singapore girl, Tanya Graham, walks the runway for Lakme Fashion week. Her mixed background of Scottish and Indian decent adds to her allure and exotic looks. Tanya lived and studied in Singapore before perusing a career in modeling in Mumbai. She debuted on the runway at Stylemart’s 2014 Sept Goddess Collection, and in just a few months has made a mark for herself in Mumbai India. Way to go Tanya! She was featured in numerous editorials on Elle and Vogue. Lakme Fashion Week 2015 marks another iconic moment, as she walked the Main Stage for...[Read more]

Finale – Lakme Fashion Week 2015


The Grand Finale of Lakme Fashion Week 2015 was an ABSOLUTE success story that needs to be shared. The venue for the Grand Finale was carefully chosen to be the Bhau Daji Lad Museum and everything was planned, set and rehearsed for the 9:30 show. At 4:30pm (5 hrs before showtime) I got an SMS message from the organizers that the venue has been moved to the Palladium Hotel due to unforeseen circumstances. I heard that someone important had apparently objected to the use of that premises for a fashion show. I could hardly believe this… and more than anything, I was amazed at how...[Read more]

Suneet Verma


I have always been a fan of Suneet Verma’s work. The showcase at Lakme Fashion Week 2015 was a tapestry of various techniques of Indian embroidery. However, the use of mirror work with thread is nothing new to the scene. Mirror work was already introduced and the trend has trickled down to the mass manufactures. So this was a bit of a look that has been seen and done. But being being a fan of Suneet Verma, I’m a bit biased and I’m willing to overlook this. Suneet Verma’s lineup seemed to take us through a kaleidoscope of time with old English charm of Victorian...[Read more]

Stylemart Fashion Show 2014 – Athena

Fashion Show 2014

Western style long gowns are in demand these days, especially for formal events like wedding receptions. In this segment of Stylemart Fashion Show 2014, I present a collection quite different from the run-of-the-mill evening gowns produced by the international designers. With an ethnic touch, inspired by the saree drapes with a rouch or wrap around the hips and drape over the shoulder, these creations generate elegant silhouettes that perfectly complement the Indian figure. I dedicate this collection to Athena, and attribute the element of wind and sky to her. And the collection is soft and...[Read more]

Stylemart Fashion Show 2014 – Durga

Fashion Show 2014

Here is another short video clip from my annual Stylemart Fashion Show 2014. Durga is another eternal source of inspiration; she is the very image of positive feminine energy Shakti. My collection for this segment represents the beauty, strength and perfection of the goddess in each one of us. Associating it with the fire element, this collection features the ever-popular hues of red, fuchsias and oranges. These are the colors that complement the Indian skin tones and bring out best features of the Indian woman. They are also considered auspicious and remain a favorite to many Indian...[Read more]

Stylemart Fashion Show 2014 – Kwan Yin

The Chinese Goddess Kwan Yin

My last fashion show was a grand affair. Stylemart Fashion Show 2014 featured collections inspired by the Goddesses of our mythos from all over the globe. I believe the goddesses represent our qualities. Here is a short video of one of the segments. Strength and compassion are our finer qualities as women. Personifying these qualities, the Chinese Goddess Kwan Yin is an inspiration for me. She showers compassion over the world. She is flexible and adaptable. In my collection for this segment, I chose a palette soft water colors of aquas and ice blues mixed with pastel pinks and soft lemon...[Read more]

Here are some photos from the annual Stylemart fashion show on the 15th of September 2014 at the Fairmont Hotel, Singapore.

The theme of this year’s show was Goddess; it is my tribute to the best qualities in women that are personified in the images and allegories of Goddesses throughout the ages, all over the world. I will write more about it in the coming days and weeks, and post more photos and even videos...[Read more]
