Manish Arora delivered an avant garde Indian wedding collection for the bride with an attitude

Two back-to-back fashion weeks that were held recently in the capital – PCJ Delhi Couture Week and India Bridal Week – stand testimony to the fact that couture in India caters largely to the big fat Indian wedding. With the exception of a few designers who showcased some body-hugging gowns or light evening saris both events were high on trousseau and glamour. So couture creations that are meant to be bespoke, customised and hand-crafted “one-of- a-kind” creations were basically runways replete and overflowing with seriously

Fashion beyond borders

The latest spring and summer styles may be the main draw, but with new organizers at the helm and a roster of emerging designers, changes are afoot behind the scenes and on the runway at Toronto’s Fashion Week. World MasterCard Fashion Week kicks off Monday under the makeshift tents at David Pecaut Square, where Canadian designers will unveil their style visions for the warmer months. The new season will mark the first with IMG Canada holding the ownership reins. The company had previously been involved in consulting closely with the event since 2010, said Peter Levy, senior vice-president and managing director for IMG Fashion Events and Properties. For 13 years, Fashion Week was owned and produced by the Fashion Design Council of Canada. IMG Canada will now operate the event in collaboration with IMG Fashion, with fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Tokyo among those within its portfolio. While the event is focused on highlighting the homegrown fashion scene, organizers say they are giving thought to how to help boost the profiles of de-signers – even beyond Canada’s borders. “We don’t make clothes or take pictures, walk the runway or tell the story about ourselves. But what we Continue reading

Rachel Zoe Holiday Tips

The stylist-turned-reality-show-star visited New York this week on behalf of Piperlime, the footwear and apparel e-commerce site for which she is a celebrity guest editor. We took her appearance as a chance to pose some of our holiday style questions—and asked her BFF/makeup-and-hair-guru Joey Maalouf for a winter beauty tip while we were at it (hint: focus on the lips). Edited excerpts:

WSJ: What is one chic piece that women should invest in this season?

RZ: There are too many things to name, but I think a great faux fur is a great thing to buy. It doesn’t go out of style, it’s so luxurious, you can throw it over jeans and a T-shirt but you can also wear it with a cocktail dress, what’s so great about it.

WSJ: Do you have any tips on giving clothing as a holiday gift?

RZ: The people that you’re giving clothing to, you should know them well. You should give them a great sweater or a little jacket is great, because the fit isn’t as tricky. But it’s hard to give someone a pair of jeans. That’s tricky. With shoes, I’ve given shoes a lot, but you have to know that person’s size. It has to be, like, your best friend. – – read more Tips
