Watermelon Pink & Turquoise | Bridesmaid Outfits

When it comes to having a bridesmaid...the first thing any bridesmaid wants is for you, the bride, to be happy. Exactly what the wedding day is all about! A bridesmaids role is to help with planning, providing moral support and celebrating your special day!

My next shoot, I decided, was to give you some bridesmaid's outfit inspo.

Colour: The watermelon pink and turquoise blue give the piece a much needed, pop of colour! Perfect for bridesmaids. Elegant, playful and comfortable.

Cut/Style: I kept the cut a minimalistic A shape kameez. I paired it with a lace pajami. The lace gives the outfit texture and is slightly elastic. The elasticity ensures the pajami is a good fit.

Embroidery: I mixed a bit of bling and soft gold embroidery to finish the piece. You get the best of both worlds!

Accessories: I kept the accessories simple with kundan earrings and gold heels. The make up is done by the very talented Carissa Tan. The shimmer on the eyes and highlighter is everything! Please follow her page if you don’t already. The make up finishes the look really well.

Thanks all for reading and I hope this inspo will work for you too!

Mature | Chic

Kameez pants are suited for all body types! They can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Therefore, this means you’ll get maximum wear, as you can wear them again and again to many occasions! If you’re after a more mature chic look, then this ensemble is perfect for you.

Cut/style: The 80’s V neck lines are back and here to stay! I love the simplicity and how they shape you. The pants are so comfy.

Embroidery: I chose delicate, dainty motifs for this dupatta. It keeps the piece looking very elegant, chic and easy to handle.

Colour: I love pastel colours, especially peach!Pastel hues keep the look very soft and fresh. The kameez and pants are both pure handmade silk. The fabric is so smooth and soft. It takes a minimum of 45 days to weave this silk due to its fine quality.

Accessories: Pearls are symbolic of wisdom and experience. As I was opting for a more mature look, pearls were the perfect choice. I kept my hair minimalist and effortless.

Thanks for tuning in!

Your Wish Is Our Command

I believe women have their own story to tell through their individual style. That's why I provide freedom and convenience in each garment. High neck doesn't suit your body type? I will change it! After all, your wish is my command.

I want to celebrate women empowerment through one's personal style.

I know women come in different sizes and shapes, so I decided to break the rules and use our clients as our real life models! Don’t they make the perfect mother and bub duo?

Official Opening | Sultry Black Glam

The new year is going to be a very exciting and big year for me. As I am opening up the Couture Mantra store on the first weekend of 2019. I know, only a week to go!

I am excited and looking forward to seeing you all there. I did a quick look, so you guys get a sneak peak of what to expect at the store.

Cut/style: I stuck to a traditional cut with this piece. I let the intricate embroidery on the blouse, delicate fringe on the dupatta, and the bling on the skirt do all the talking.

Embroidery: This outfit has a heavily sequin fringe skirt. The blouse has prominent yet subtle embroidery on the neckline. I finished the outfit with elegant fringe detailing

Colour: Why black? Black isn’t generally worn in the festive season or at auspicious occasions. I wanted to break that misconception and show you how it can be worn during wedding festivities. My lengha is actually the black rainbow iris iridescent colour. This sequins are black but will reflect the colours surrounding it. I had purple balloons around me so it’s reflecting the purple balloons in the sequin work.

Matched with: Sultry smokey eyes and nude lips is a must with this look! I kept my hair effortless, and kept it straight. I added traditional chandbalis to add some colour. The gold accessories give the look a break from black.

Thanks for reading.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week :)

Midnight Diwali

Diwali - the Festival of Lights. It stands for light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. It’s my favourite festival! Beautifully lit diyas, delicious sweets, exchanging of gifts and best of all dressing up in your newest outfits.

This year I’ve put together a traditional Diwali look with a modern twist.

Cut/style: The cut of this comfortable pajami suit is everything! The crepe silk is such a breathable fabric, that is what makes the outfit so comfy. It gives you structure at the top and leaves you looking like you have an hourglass body.

Colour: Blue is my favourite colour. I opted for a midnight blue in this piece as it symbolises loyalty, confidence and intelligence. That’s exactly how I felt when I looked at my reflection in the mirror.

Embroidery: The key to my heart embroidery gives the outfit a very chic look. It’s got a very interesting handwork materials combined. This includes resham thread work, woollen thread work, sequences and beads to gives it some sparkle.

Matched with: The mauve lips added a pinch of drama in my makeup. I accessorised with hoops which give a 90’s vibe. I finished the look with translucent heels.

Thanks for reading :)

Hope you guys have the most amazing and blessed Diwali!
