Fashion Finds

Asia’s most anticipated bridal couture extravaganza Bridal Asia celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. Some of Asia’s leading designers showcased their bridal collections on the 4th and 5th of October at the Hyatt Regency in New Delhi. Celebrated Bangladeshi designer Maheen Khan showcased her bridal couture, representing sub-continental fashion. Her collections included Jamdani sarees in this season’s citrus colours with intricate zari work and A-line empire-waisted qameezes worn with skinny churidaars. I absolutely loved the bright colour palette and the easy fluid shapes which are very au courant. I applaud Maheen Khan for representing Bangladeshi fashion on a platform that has long been dominated by Indian designers. Its been high time!

Maheen Khan has her own design house in Bangladesh called ‘Mayasir’- that carries her clothing line for men, women and children including her jewelry and accessories collection.  She uses local materials for all her collections. Mayasir is located at House-26, Road-127, Gulshan Avenue Dhaka.


"Google" saree

I was browsing the internet today and came upon one of my most fascinating fashion finds yet. Indian designer Satya Paul has designed a “Google” themed saree. The saree is part of his “POP ART” collection and the fabric is georgette with jacquard prints and embellished with beads and sequins. The saree features a web address (Satya Paul’s obviously) and search results.The ‘g’ in “Google” was replaced with an ‘o’ to spell “Oogle” possibly to avoid copyright issues.

Satya Paul’s refreshing take on fashion is evident through his innovative union of fashion and technology. I absolutely love this saree for its originality and not just because im an ardent fan of this designer. So for all you tech savvy fashionista’s out there, this saree is a fashion must-have.

Satya Paul’s clothing line is available in Dhaka at ‘Vasavi’ and ‘Etcetera Fashion Exclusives’. I have included the link for Satya Paul’s website where you can check out more details about his collections.
