Summer is the right time for ushering fabulous fashion trends, be it apparel, jewellery, footwear or accessories. As the mercury soars high, adorning oneself with minimal jewels has become a new trend.

Nishant Tulsiani, Director at Anaqa and Parneet Thukral, co-founder at Gioielli have listed few tips:

Tassels are quite in vogue these days. Be it danglers, chokers or ear cuffs.Tassels have become a trending choice among young ladies. Swarovski stones are another great style trending this season.

Giving a luxe essence yet confining to your budget, stunning and chic neckpieces, danglers and rings embellished with crystals can be an interesting addition to your summer wardrobe.

Single and double layered chains with edgy pendants are a must-have. Dainty ear studs and bracelets encrusted with semi-precious gemstones in lively yet subtle tones of pink, aqua and green are another trend this year.

The ancient trends are coming back in a more grandiose way touching upon every fashion segment. Taking cue from the Greek mythology and Victorian era, jewellery in flaunting motifs of wings or feathers and vintage pearl jewellery are also becoming a hit with the ladies.

Tribal jewellery in oxidized silver is also grabbing great style statement for the season. Chunky and bold necklaces, stunning cocktail rings and jhumkis in oxidized silver with a tint of brass gives an elegant styling essence.

Chokers have come to the forefront of fashion in a big way. This particular accessory in versatile style and detailing is setting fashion goals both for traditional and western outfits. A contemporary style satin or lace choker with a dangling pearl or a crystal can give a classic makeover to your western outfit.

Chokers in antique gold finish with crystals and tassels are also trending these days. On the other hand, a statement choker crafted in kundan or polki can give a mesmerizing touch to a traditional outfit.Read more at:plus size formal dresses

Fashion tips for plus-size women

The mantra that every curvy girl should follow is to dress right for her size. Bid goodbye to all those oversized clothes and slip into outfits with the right fit that will underplay your problem areas and accentuate all the right angles of your frame, say experts.

Styling can bring about a lot of difference to your appearance, says Kristy De Cunha, Associate Designer of Female Clothing, Shopotox.

4 Ensure that you pick the right fit: You may be tempted to buy oversized clothes to cover those 'problem areas' of your body. However, the bigger the size of clothes, the plumper you tend to look. Instead, choose an outfit that complements your body shape and size. Choose from comfortable fabrics and look for the right fit that flatters the slimmer parts of your body well.

4 Select from vertical prints and smart detailing: Vertical prints can be your best friends, as they can create an illusion of slimness and height. Colour-blocking patterns and small patterns in mild colours also look perfect. You can also opt for diagonal prints that can make your waist look slimmer.

4 Show more skin: Deep or V-shaped necklines can make your neck appear lengthier. Curvy ladies should opt for V-necklines more often as they tend to give a slimmer appearance. You can get your tops, kurtis and even sari blouses stitched in V-necklines.

4 Waist belts are life saviours: Look for wide and broad waist belts that help in defining your waist and accentuating your curves. The belt should not only complement your outfit but should also make you look slimmer. Do not overly tighten the belt, as it may make unseemly fat bulge.

4 Shirts are chic: At any given day, a nice pastel summer shirt could be your thing. Buy just one size larger than your actual size. You don't have to go two tags larger. Combine it with your favourite pair of cotton jeggings, your staple outdoor sandals and your everyday sling. You now have a sassy casual look to flaunt.Read more at:cheap formal dresses melbourne

From dream-worthy gowns to two-for-one options that allow the bride to switch looks from ceremony to reception, wedding dress collections flow with variety that guarantees every bride will find “the one”, whatever her taste or budget.

Brides-to-be are leading one of the biggest trends in bridal wear, with many reconsidering their wedding dress budget in order to spend more on other parts of their big day. As a result, wedding dress designers are finding new ways to give brides more value for their money.

“Many designers are coming with a second label, which are equally competitive in terms of design and quality but offered at a lower price point than their couture lines,” says Carolyn Chow, co-founder at bridal boutique Central Weddings.

Second labels at the boutique include Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss collection, and the newly arrived Notte collection by Marchesa with a starting price of HK$22,000. “There is lots of detail and delicate workmanship on these gowns and the designs are just as glamorous as the couture ones,” Chow says.

According to Chow, this more budget-savvy approach to wedding dresses is also seeing brides search for gowns with add-on or detachable elements that allow them to create different looks with one dress.

“Designers are now offering options for creating a second look on their gowns,” Chow says. “Monique Lhuillier has added a dreamy tulle overskirt to her signature embroidered sheath gown so the bride can walk down the aisle with a dramatic train, which she can easily remove so that she can complete her first dance in an equally elegant but more mobile sheath gown.” Israel-born, Britain-based Persy Bridal Couture is also a new addition at Central Weddings offering a two-for-one solution, with the current collection including a lace gown with long sleeves that can be removed once the formalities of the ceremony

are over.

A similar theme is being played out at Hitched! Bridal, where separate bodices and skirts by designers such as David Fielden allow brides to create more than one look without buying multiple dresses.

“Brides love it because of its versatility,” says Hitched! Bridal founder Dana Trang. “They can mix a bustier top with an A-line tulle skirt with a long train for the ceremony and a bias-cut skirt for the reception. There is a bohemian trend going on where brides like to match a loose lace top with a more relaxed skirt.”

According to Trang, semi-sheer gowns with layers of lace, tulle and appliqué over a blush lining are replacing the “naked” sheer effect that many brides found too revealing, instead giving brides more modesty that is, “Romantic and ethereal because it is soft, and yet still appropriately sexy,” Trang says.

The otherworldly theme continues at Winnie Couture where romantic silhouettes, plunging necklines and clouds of tulle and flirty organza skirts are combined with decadent lace, translucent motifs and floral embellishments that, “transport brides to an enchanted time and dreamy fantasy setting”, according to the boutique.

Trinity Bridal’s managing director, Cecile Chen, says Hong Kong-based brides are on top of trends and their preferences are always changing. “Our brides know fashion and are not afraid to embrace trends even on the most traditional of days, their wedding day,” Chen says.

These include the trend for daringly low cut necklines, with designers such as Israel-based Galia Lahav slashing sensual silhouettes to the navel in off-the-shoulder fashion with floral appliqué finishes, while others such as local favourite Oscar de la Renta put a more subtle spin on the theme.

His low cut necklines are softened with ethereal A-line silhouettes in lace, appliqué and tulle that “embody the trend classically for the fashion bride that is romantically traditional”, Chen says.

Oscar de la Renta also hints at an emerging trend for silk crepe gowns with architectural draping, accentuated with sheer lace panels that “Set off a militia chic vibe”, according to Chen.

Glamorous, figure-hugging silhouettes stitched to accentuate every curve are still the domain of Israeli designers such as Berta and Inbal Dror at Audella Bridal Boutique.

Boutique director, Erica Ling, says strapless mermaid dresses are embellished with embroidered tulle and a big, French lace train, while gowns “with a royal or princess feel are also proving popular, and off-the-shoulder ball gowns with exquisite detailing and a sprinkle of beam or crystals are sweet and dreamy”.

New designers at the boutique also hail from Israel including Alon Livne White and Lee Petra Grebenau, whose designs span the romantic, classic and modern with “uniquely breathtaking silhouettes”, according to Ling.

Meanwhile, relatively new additions to Hong Kong’s bridal scene are bringing their own fresh take on bridal wear.

A largely independent range of designers, mostly from the US, can be found at Miss Bride including Hayley Paige, Alvina Valenta, Watters, Alexandra Grecco and Jenny Yoo. Emerging themes among these brands include the return of the bow, with oversized knots tied, belted and folded into sashes to create a dramatic focal point to gowns.

Hong Kong born Rania Hatoum established her business in the US before returning home last year to open her eponymous boutique.

The designer’s Chinese-Egyptian heritage is subtly displayed in collections, with current themes paying homage to the 1940s and 1950s with baroque lace and beaded bodices against a vintage palette of blush, ivory, Champagne and bronze.Read more at:red carpet dresses | cheap formal dresses

The Afro Jumbo Trust will tonight hold a dinner to fundraise for the preservation of elephants.

The Trust is working with Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate as well as Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority for the campaign.

The event that is dubbed “Dinner Under the Stars” will be held at Parks headquarters along Borrowdale Road. A delegation from South Africa arrived yesterday for the event. Among the SA visitors are DJ Mroza, who is coming with her crew from SABC’s Ukhozi FM and businessman Jetro Mpofu, who is the major sponsor behind the crew’s involvement in the programme. The event is a brainchild of South Africa-based Zimbabwean fashion designer Tembani Mubochwa. Environment minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri will be guest of honour at the event that will see various models showcasing designs done for Afro-Jumbo campaign. The fashion show will be another highlight of the event

A number of artistes are also expected to grace the event while others will provide entertainment at the event. Mubochwa said they entertainment will come from the likes of Selmor Mtukudzi, comedian Samantha “Gonyeti” Kureya and Forward Mazuruse. “We are happy with the support that we have received from our South African partners. We want to thank Mr Mpofu and DJ Mroza for coming to grace the event.

“The dinner will have delegates involved in wild life conservation and people from various backgrounds. It is meant to raise awareness about elephants and to celebrate our rich natural heritage. “While the Afro Jumbo Trust focuses on the issue of elephant in Zimbabwe and Africa at large, it is also meant to celebrate wild life that Africa is endowed with,” said Mubochwa.

“We are inviting people from all walks of life to come and enjoy dinner under the stars as we celebrate our beautiful nature. It promises to be a memorable event.”Read more at:long formal dresses

sridevi, MOM, sridevi film, boney kapoor, jhanvi kapoor, khushi kapoor
(Photo:cheap formal dresses)

Sridevi’s MOM is heading towards its release but before the actor starts its promotional tour, she went live through the Facebook handle of Zee Studios, the banner which is producing the film. Provided this was the first Facebook interaction for Sridevi, the actor looked pretty nervous hence the conversation was also kept short and precise. During the chat, the actor revealed something unusual and surprising.

When a fan asked her about a funny incident that took place on the sets of MOM, Sridevi revealed that she had avoided talking to her husband Boney Kapoor during the shooting of the film. She said, “During the shooting, I stopped talking to Boney ji. I used to bully Boney ji, I would wish him good morning and goodnight and that’s the only conversation I had with him because I wanted to be in my character and to be in my character shoes.”

“I hope it has helped,” she says while giggling. During the chat, she also spoke about being a mother and the responsibility that comes with motherhood. The actor advised the younger parents to devote and dedicate themselves to their children and keep them as their priority. “Give your children all the time and energy, they need to be your number one priority,” said the English Vinglish actor. On the other hand, Sridevi advised the new generation to keep themselves away from any kind of addiction as they are the future of the country, “Listen to your parents, respect them, they are well wishers. don’t do drugs, don’t smoke, you are future, take responsibility. So, please take care.”

When asked about her best friends, she recalls, “My best friends are my children. We can have fun wherever we are together. They are my fashion icon.” She also reveals how her family works as a perfect stress buster for her. One of her fans asked what she would have been if not an actor and Sridevi equipped, “My father was a lawyer, I was fascinated to become a lawyer too.”

Sridevi’s upcoming film MOM also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pakistani actor Sajal Ali and Akshaye Khanna. Zee Studios shared a snippet about the film in which they wrote, “Devki is a loving wife, and a mother of two beautiful daughters, she seemingly has a perfect happy family. Yet, somehow the true happiness of being a mother eludes her. Arya, a sensitive girl cannot accept Devki and her love wholeheartedly. Arya believes, a daughter comes into a mother’s life, but a mother does not enter the life of a daughter. Devki patiently waits for Arya’s love and acceptance as she believes only a mother can truly understand the silence of her child.

An unfortunate incident further distances Arya and Devki, to a point of no return. In such a situation a mother has to make a choice not between what is wrong or right but between what is wrong and very wrong.

What will Devki do in such a situation? Will she fight for her daughters love knowing the consequences she may have to face? What will a woman do when she is challenged? MOMTheFilm in cinemas 7th July.”Read more at:celebrity dresses

There was a label missing from this year’s Australian Fashion Week, and Buzz says missing only because it’s a regular and last year’s show underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge was such a perfect visual melding of location and fashion. But it turns out that Manning Cartell had a good reason for skipping the event this year: it’s in global mode.

The 12-year-old label (pictured) founded by sisters Gabrielle, Cheryl and Vanessa Manning has just signed a deal with US department store Barneys to stock the label exclusively in the country for two years. It’s the first foray into the global market for the brand, which is largely vertical, with eight stores across Australia, plus accounts with David Jones and a handful of independent boutiques.

“We’ve very much focused on our market until now,” Gabrielle Manning tells Buzz. “Maybe 12 to 18 months ago we started to consider the international market.” The first step was to engage a local consultant in Los Angeles to focus on celebrity placement, which kicked off at the top with Amal Clooney, and included Bella Hadid, Margot Robbie, Jessica Biel and Janelle Monae, “which was cool”, Manning says by way of understatement.

“That created a bit of confidence for us. And this was where we started to really decide we’d approach that and decided not to show at fashion week this year and went to New York and met with Barneys. When we travel, we look at different department stores and Barneys is the US department store we wanted to be in. That was the first appointment we had. It’s nice for it to be a success. Ultimately, we’d rather partner with an amazing department store and from there maybe give some exclusivity so they can really build the brand.”

Manning says the first meeting with Barneys was held during a blizzard in March. “New York was shut down, schools were closed — we were very fortunate they turned up to that appointment.” Barneys will roll out the label in seven stores — including New York’s Madison Avenue, Beverly Hills, Chicago and Philadelphia — as well as online. The first delivery will land in stores next month.

The appeal, Gabrielle believes, comes from the label’s dresses, prints, the mix of textures such as velvet and lace, and the denim pieces. “The sophisticated femininity (we offer) works for the mix that they have.”

Not long ago, Buzz reported that Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of popular US label J. Crew would be leaving the building at the end of this year, which was front-page fashion news across the globe, such has been her influence on the brand and the broader fashion scene. This week comes news that the label’s chief executive Mickey Drexler is standing down.

The 72-year-old, who invested $US100 million in the company and owns 10 per cent of it, told Women’s Wear Daily it is very much his decision, although it must be noted that the company isn’t in its best financial shape, with debts of about $US1.5 billion ($2bn). West Elm president James Brett will take over as chief executive and Drexler will remain on chairman.

“I am relaxed-ish,” Drexler told WWD. “It’s a large day for me. I have been running companies for 37 years and the announcement today is a major change in my life.”

Of Brett, he said, “He’s a merchant. A brand guy. He likes design, and he is a customer person. Those are the four critical elements that go into making a strong leader.”

Kudos to one of Buzz’s favourite labels, Romance Was Born, for being a finalist in the NSW Creative Achievement Awards in the emerging creative talent section. Designer duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales are up against design company DesignByThem and architecture firm Aileen Sage Architects with Michelle Tabet. They are the first fashion finalists in any category since the inaugural awards in 2014. Winners will be announced next Wednesday.Read more at:bridesmaid dresses

If one traces the life and journey of khadi — the crown jewel of Indian traditional fabrics — the one sentiment it triumphantly conjures up for every Indian is that of freedom. Political freedom then and freedom of spirit now, through every phase of its growth, khadi has been more than just a piece of fabric.

Under the veil of simplicity, the versatile fabric has for long carried the weight of balancing traditions and style. And as traditions go, the time has come for khadi to reinvent. The government’s initiative to promote khadi, along with Indian fashion houses’ interest to take the agenda forward with their prowess of design and scale, has set a grand stage for the resurgence of brand Khadi.

Talking to DH about the government’s approach, Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) Chairman V K Saxena said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to popularise khadi has come a long way in supporting the industry. The khadi industry generated employment for about 2,025 artisans in FY2016-17, while the village industry generated 4.08 lakh jobs,” adding, “We are very keen on generating employment, and hence we are distributing charkhas and looms, and also replacing old charkhas.”

Last year, khadi and village industries’ turnover was Rs 52,000 crore, of which khadi contributed Rs 2,007 crore. This year, khadi revenues are expected to grow by 35% to touch Rs 2,700 crore.

Beyond ethnicity

Over the last one month, KVIC has announced association with textile giants Raymond and Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail that will see the launch of khadi products under their respective brand names.

Lalbhai Group’s flagship Arvind, which is due to sign an agreement with KVIC within a week or so, has been working closely with the khadi sector for several years. An MoU between Arvind Mills and Rajkot-based Saurashtra Rachnatmak Samiti (SRS), enabled the former to produce ‘denim khadi’ at a global level, wherein the latter, a voluntary organisation, provided raw khadi materials to the company.

“Public-private partnership impact on khadi sales may be difficult to quantify at this stage, as we are still experimenting. But the impact will definitely be significant,” says Saxena.

Over the past 7-8 years, Arvind has spun out hand-woven jeans for various brands, including its own Creyate, and Levi’s. This year, the company is working on a collection of hand-woven jeans for some Japanese brands. Moreover, this season, Arvind is working on hand-spun fabric in the shirting space as well. With these plans underway, the number of khadi artisans that Arvind works with, is set to run into the thousands from the 750 artisans it had worked with during the last season.

“Today, the segment claims a small part of Arvind’s total production because of capacity and price constraints, and we are trying to break through these constraints,” says Arvind Limited Executive Director Punit Lalbhai.

Raymond Vice President and Head (Sales and Distribution) Ram Bhatnagar says, “The whole idea behind launching khadi is to make it more relevant in today’s day and age. At this stage, it is all about achieving volumes and getting the supply chain and distribution right.” The company is aiming at an initial revenue of Rs 20-30 crore from the khadi collection this year. Raymond’s design team is working with 30 khadi clusters, each complementing the other to achieve innovative design and perfect finish to appeal to the youth. Come August, and it will launch its khadi portfolio consisting of shirting and suiting fabrics, and suits and jackets for men.

“Authentic Indian products resonate strongly with the Indian consumers and there is an increasing demand for hand-made fabric, that stays true to its roots and exudes simplicity and vogue at the same time,” says Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Business Head Ashish Dikshit. Peter England, an Aditya Birla brand, will launch its khadi collection across the country through its 700 retail ponts, KVIC outlets and leading ecommerce portals.

Alongside these fashion giants, khadi is also getting a good deal of its design bravado from designer Ritu Beri, who has been appointed as adviser to KVIC.

Knots along the way

Although it has written itself a rich heritage of quality and design, the industry faces its own set of challenges today. Entry barriers, market restrictions and compliance issues — the khadi industry is battling it all, in its own capacity. On entry barriers, Saxena says, “Earlier people lost interest in the industry as the procedure to get authorisation to undertake khadi activities was very tedious. Now, we have made the process simple, and it can be completed online.” Getting the Khadi Mark registration is a matter of 45 days now, he adds.

For an industry that is dealing with accessibility and affordability issues, market challenges for khadi also enlists lack of awareness. Over the years, khadi has gained itself a reputation of being an ordinary fabric suitable for politicians. However, as things are changing, now more rapidly than ever, sustainability in production and adaptability in design, have made the fabric aspirational among the youth.

“Now it is all about making it accessible and affordable, and while the domestic market continues to grow, the focus is on opening up to international markets. We want to take Indian expertise to the world,” says Lalbhai. He believes that as of now, the metrics to measure growth in the segment should be employment creation, ability to create an international market in the segment and improving affordability. “Affordability is another key area. While currently the price of hand-woven fabric is more than double machine-made fabric, the idea is to bring it to 30-40% with economies of scale in play,” Lalbhai adds.

In this context, it also becomes pertinent to create the right kind of employment, which supports social upliftment of artisans. KVIC is currently working with 2,372 khadi clusters, employing more than 4.1 lakh artisans. While Raymond is set to generate 2.5 lakh man hours of employment for khadi artisans, and has already purchased 1.27 lakh metres of fabric, Peter England has agreed for a minimum procurement of khadi and khadi products for five years, with primary purchases of muslin cotton and silk.

KVIC is already selling its products online through Paytm. Soon it will be made available on mygov.in also. “While retail partners play a huge role in the growth of the industry, the opportunity is not limited to that. The railways, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Air India and other such entities, are all purchasing khadi products,” says Saxena. “We have approached various embassies to adopt khadi. Circulars have already been dispatched and we are expecting orders soon,” he adds.

With sufficient push from the government and encouraging response from the industry, khadi is set to make a glorious comeback. Keen on crossing borders this time, the fabric is sure to enwrap more enthusiasts in its simplistic elegance. Authenticity, sustainability and style — as the three converge, Indian consumers may just find their sense of progressiveness in their roots.Read more at:formal dresses

Measuring 178cm, with a cascade of wavy brunette hair, bronze legs and a short dress bejewelled in sequins, she's not your usual mum at the primary school gates.

Kelly Coe breaks up the humdrum of school road patrol and standard fashion. She never needs an excuse to glam it up.

The 34-year-old tilts her iPhone up and down on Facetime showing off the dress she wore to Tuesday school drop-off, a black sequined number with LOVE inscribed in white, from her latest collection.

"I think they think I'm way over-dressed sometimes," she quips of other school mums.

Coe, one of Otumoetai College's most successful graduates and creator of fashion label Augustine, has forged a lucrative career here and over the ditch.

She hasn't got a personal assistant and is terrible at keeping a diary, but somehow makes time for everything, including this 10am interview. She answers her phone on Facetime while walking around in white sneakers in her Auckland office.

She's lived in Auckland since she was 21.

A chock-a-block clothing rack flashes up on the screen before she arrives at her desk.

"My nanny is away this week," she tells me. "I just had a text [from a friend] looking after my baby to say she hasn't gone to sleep. So I'm like, okay, call me if I have to come home again."

The baby, Havana Alaska, is 8 months old, waking twice a night, and going through a clingy stage. But it's all perfectly manageable for Coe.Read more at:orange formal dresses | navy blue formal dress
