Fashion is a changing phenomenon but what sets off the change? Two major contributors to changing fashion are serials and movies. If movies create the ideal world for the viewers, Serials have become a reflection of daily life of the family. These two mediums affect the lifestyle as well as introduce fashion into the society.

 

With stories which cater to Indian household, Soap Operas have become an integral part of life of several women and with hundreds of serials on Air; the affect of it on the society is immense. With such a huge approach to the common mass, one cannot deny the affect of daily soaps on the fashion sense of the society.

 

Well talking about Sarees how can one forget about the cult created by “Sarees worn by Tulsi” when Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi was dominating small screen. Similarly the trend of “Drapes worn by Parvati” in Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki is seeded in mind of every Indian Mother and Daughter. In an identical manner, “Kashish Suits” featured in Kahin To Hoga took off explosively and set a vogue amongst Girls especially teenagers who considered her a style icon. These fads are promoted by the media increased the obsession of people to pursue it; thus flourishing the business of clothing.

 

Influenced by this idea we bring to a collection inspired by one of the most famous daily soap Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Browse through our Akshara Anarkali Suits Collection and be the embodiment of modesty in a style by your favorite on-screen Bahu.

 

 

Rashmi Desai has not only won accolades for her negative character as Tapasya in Uttaran but has also been able to inoculate a steep sense of vogue that has been admired by many. Check out our Uttaran – Rashmi Desai Sarees Collection publicized by none other than Tapasya and pick out your favorite Sarees.

 

 

Fashion Fact: Multi color dresses were rare before soaps but the fan following of Hindi soaps willingly accepted and created a new craze. Current Stats show that the clothing in trend at small and big events is Multicolored Anarkali Suits especially the one’s endorsed by Daily Soaps.

Peppy music beats, countless chirpy smiles, never-ending merriment, a vivacious bride, a dashing groom…I can keep on going on and on writing about the ambiance of fun and frolic that coats a home like honey during an Indian wedding. The families of chachis, mamis and bhuas get together for a sparkling weeklong affair that leaves everyone lusting for more of the sumptuous shaadi ka khana’ and unforgettable memories.

 

The wedding functions have their own charisma and each function holds its own importance in our culture. I’m pretty sure that if you are a true-blue Indian, wedding functions are something you really enjoy. All the naach gaana, mehndi and choora functions definitely make the ‘big fat Indian wedding’ a delight for the senses.

 

Sangeet

 

Of all the functions, sangeet is the best enjoyed function. Roughly translated into English, sangeet is basically a dance party. Sounds pretty cool! And who does not like dancing to the desi beats of catchy Bollywood numbers? Even if you are not a good dancer, no one can stop you from swaying to the loud thumping music being played by the dj. With colorful and fashionable traditional attires creating magic on the dance floor, sangeet is the most-loved of all wedding functions. I’m sure you will agree with me on that!

 

 

Mehndi hai rachne wali….

 

The next day after ladies sangeet comes the mehndi function that is a hot favorite with girls. Mehndi laga ke rakhna….is every girl’s dream song and the excitement of applying beautiful patterns of henna on the hands is very alluring. The gorgeous would-be-bride has her hands and feet covered in artistic henna designs. All the other ladies of the house also have their hands adorned with henna making this ceremony a colorful one!

 

 

Rangla choora

 

Red and white ivory bangles add to the irresistible charm of the glorious Indian bride. This ceremony is done on the morning of the wedding. The bride’s maternal uncle makes her wear the choora and everyone gives their blessings. I find the choora is the girl’s best jewelry in her whole attire. What do you think?

 

Haldi

 

Did you know that haldi ceremony in Indian weddings is nothing less than a refreshing spa treatment that leaves your skin glowing? Yes! In the Haldi ceremony, the family members apply a paste prepared from herbs, vegetable oils, fresh milk curds, sandalwood powder and turmeric on the face, arms and feet of the bride and the groom. Now you know the secret behind the glow on the wedding couple’s face. Well, it’s not just love!

 

 

Just as I am writing this, I remember I have to go shopping for the lehenga that I am going to wear on my best friend’s wedding. I am all kicked up and excited to attend her wedding! The marriage season is on and there is a whiff of celebrations in the air! It’s time to gorge on sweets and indulge in irresistible delicacies served during the wedding ceremonies. It’s also the time to display my best ethnic wear and jewelry.

 

So which is the wedding that you are headed to?
