It’s not often that Houston gets to launch a famed Indian design house—especially in such grand style. But grand style is par for the course for Sameera Faridi of Sameera Faridi Design Studio at Poshak Fashion & Style, which turned out top New-Delhi-based designers Parvesh Jai, who have been outfitting Bollywood gorgeously for the better part of nearly 10 years. Faridi, whose eponymous atelier has enabled Houston brides of South Asian backgrounds to find spectacular custom wedding and special-occasion wear sans overseas travel, feted Parvesh Jai with “The Royal Saga”—a riveting fashion show celebrating 100 years of Bollywood style, held at the Houston Motor Club, followed by a VIP reception attended by local trend-setters and fashion media. Check out a sampling of pix from Faridi’s fantastic event…and check out Faridi herself—and her amazing designs—at Sameera Faridi Design Studio!

Bridal Preview: Kenneth Pool Spring 2014

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

If there’s one word we can associate with Kenneth Pool’s Spring 2014 bridal collection, it’s…glamour. These are no fun-and-flirty frocks or garden-nymph gowns. These wedding dresses are straight-up spotlight-stealers. Look for lots of lustrous satin, hip-hugging drop-waist and fit-and-flare silhouettes, plus a few queenly ballgowns for good measure. While, unlike in collections past, bling is at a minimum in this new Kenneth Pool showing, when beadwork does make an appearance in the collection, it is magnificently delicate and detailed, as in a gorgeous, shimmering cap-sleeve gown—the showstopper of the collection. See designer Amsale Aberra’s newest Kenneth Pool gowns when Belle Mariée Bridal hosts a September trunk show. Check the salon’s site for more details. Meanwhile, check out our favorite Kenneth Pool Spring 2014 gowns!
