India Inspired

I love how Indian wear is twisted and is born as an absolute-gorgeous-pretty western wear. Use of bindis and garlands, saree silhouette, bejewelled tunic tops, rich brocade embroidery and intricate sequin work. Vivid palette of pinks, plums, fuchsias, peacock blues and creams all blended with fine golden embroidery.beautiful eggplant, gold, red, and ivory.
My next project on Missoni is a women’s collection and yes Inspired by my India

DIY : Beaded Elphie!!!

Hullo peaches,
                    Wanna bring life to your plain cardigan?? Simple work…embellish it!


                                   Meet Elphie (elphi) my lil Big be-jewelled elephant ^_^

I made elephant shape cutouts from the leftover cutouts of my denims that i had used for making shorts. after cutting out the shape i needed, i bleached it to give a faded look after which i stitched it on the cardigan and then beaded it up.

I took the inspiration from the decorated Indian elephants. They’re always so prettily decorated, so bright, vibrant , playful and makes you so happy just by looking at it itself.

                Fluorescent and gold beads gets a bold stand on a grey background for a stunning shoulder.

Hope you all love it and you could try making like this one, all you need is just a little patience and love to work.
Get inspired and stay Blessed.
