How are you?
Its festival season here in India and I couldn’t feel happier to be around right now. Since I missed out on all the fun and festivities last year during my stay in UK, I’ve decided to make up for it this season, which means you have plenty of festive posts coming your way. 😀
First and foremost, we all need to go cracker-free this Diwali. This is a major step towards curbing the increasing levels of pollution in our country. I feel the SC ban on the sale of firecrackers has been by far, the best decision for Delhi. Also, we must do this for those destitute children who slog and risk their lives in factories, making these crackers for us.
Lets celebrate this festival of lights the authentic way, with diyas and candles, sweets and new clothes, family and close friends. Dress up the traditional way in saris or lehengas or opt for fusion ensembles this Diwali like layered suit dresses or maxi kurtis.
Here, I’ve created two different looks with some exclusive handcrafted pieces from The Svaya. Every single piece at Svaya is a perfect mix of exquisite cuts coupled with unique detailing.

I love how prints have taken over this season. Something like ikat combined with indigo blue looks nothing but beautiful. Plus, I love the flow of this layered dress(above), its comfortable, and can be paired with both flats and heels.
For the second look, I chose a red floral print maxi kurti mainly because its something I’ve never worn before. I think its quite versatile and can be styled in a number of ways.

The best thing about these outfits is that they aren’t too OTT and can be worn to numerous occasions and not just on festivals. You can always amp up your look with statement jewelry in silver or gold and some bright makeup.
Hair: I went for curls to create a more happy and fun look. Also, the volume looks great.
Makeup is quite classic with winged eyeliner, bold red lips and some shimmer on the eyes.

It was really amazing shooting in Delhi after so long, and a huge thanks to my photographer Vaibhav Sachdeva for making this shoot more play and less work. 😀
Hope you all enjoyed reading this one! Have a Happy and Eco-friendly Diwali.
Much Love ❤
