Headbands by Deepa Gurnani

This is a brand started by husband and wife (Jay Lakhani and Deepa Gurnani). They specialize in accessories such as belts, scarves, headbands and hand bags. With names like Bvlgari, Fendi, Emanuel Ungaro and Alexander Mcqueen under their “belts”, the couple is creating a stir in the accessory world.

These head bands fit right in with the Bohemian look which is very hot right now.

They experiment with intricate embroidery and beading (naturally inspired from the Indian culture) paired with the highest quality of craftsmanship.

Check them out below. I found these shopbop.com but they are also available on sites like intermixonline.com and netaporter.com.  These would make great gifts this holiday season for all your Fashionista friends! (hint hint)

From Shalwars to Harem Pants

I always wondered when our Shalwar style pants would make it to the runway of Internation Fashion Weeks. Well the time is here.

“Harem pants” (or Sultan pants) as they call them are finally sneaking their way into the Western world. They were big in New York Fashion Week. Supposedly the trend was first started (or brought to the west) by a French Editor. And now all the top designers are including the style in their collections.

I think the next 10 years in International fashion will be more about concealing and showing less and less skin.

I won’t be surprised if the Dupatta on the head or a hijab like scarf is the next big trend.

Below are some photos.
