Designer Spotlight: Manish Arora

Manish Arora is an Indian designer whose work popped up on my Pinterest feed. It blew me away and sent me down a rabbit hole. I just had to share his garments with you. He teams up with companies like Swarovski (why not?) and embellishes his pieces to absolute perfection stopping right at the cusp of them almost becoming over done. In some pieces, you can definitely see an Indian influence of what looks like Sari-esque fabric. Here are a few of my favorite looks from various collections.

Contemporary Wedding Trends

While perusing Pinterest for a very specific style of garment, I went down a rabbit hole on contemporary wedding ensembles and of course I just had to share these with you. They almost make me wish I was walking down the aisle and had reason to wear one myself! They’re all a modern take on wedding ensembles that hold on to the traditional aspects of a full on gown. They’re pantsuits and they’re just as elegant and sophisticated as their traditional counterparts.
