I had so many favorites from the collection that I was already thinking of picking a few. The collection had something for everyone. From easy breezy comfortable clothing to heavy and intricate work for party wears and even for weddings! I couldn’t wait too long and I did pick a few garments later on that I could wear comfortably on any occasion. I won’t say that the ones I picked can be worn in a night party but can be easily pulled off in a day time get together. The styles are contemporary Indian and I can’t wait to share the pictures with you! Stay tuned for a separate blog post on those. I hope you enjoyed this one and I will be back with many more posts very soon! Have an awesome day! B-Bye!
