Since I’ve been so busy with London Fashion Week, post-holiday workload and now getting ready for the upcoming festivals, it’s been a little bit tricky to find any time to relax. How time flies! It’s almost October, where did 2015 go? That said, it’s the time for the second Eid (Al-Adha) of this year. In this post, I am sharing my Eid look which can double up as your all other Indian (sub continent) festivals and special occassion look.
For this Eid, I picked up this lime green sequins and gota embellished dhoti styled anarkali set from one of the festival and wedding specialists Indian designer Amrita Thakur. Comfort meets style in this embroidered anarkali set paired with dhoti pants have elevated this Eid look!
Glamorous designer Amrita Thakur’s festival appropriate creation featuring this lime green viscose georgette short anarkali embroidered with silver sequins motifs in flower pattern and gota lace border along with tassels attached with front button placket left my desi fashion world speechless with its elegance. It is paired with green polyester dhoti-salwar and soft peach-pink net dupatta with scalloped gota border.
To avoid diverting the focus from the detail embellishment and soothing colors of this dhoti styled Anarkali suit, I chose to wear only one piece of jewellery with it. You know the kind of jewellery that makes you feel like you unlocked an era? That’s exactly how we felt when I first saw this Ra Abta by Rahul Passa (head jewellery) on Pernia’s Pop-up Shop. It’s got this mogul aesthetic to it that gives it a very royal feel.
Rather than accessorising your look after choosing your outfit, this head piece known as Passa is the kind of jewellery that inspires an entire look. Inspired from the jewelleries worn by the courtesans of the Mogul empire, a Passa adds just the right amount of glamour to your Eid look. In fact, this will make a statement to all your festival and special occasion Indian ethnic wear. A traditional kundan and pearl Passa paired with this multi-duty dhoti styled short Anarkali suit is perfect if you are going to attend your bestie’s Mehendi party. It is bold in a very traditional way.
Have an environment-friendly and happy Eid, everyone!
