ATARA by Namita Kataria

In the last decade India has witnessed a 'boom' in Fashion & Arts in all its aspects, enumerable brands and labels have come forth to present the population with apparels that appease the hunger of women & men alike.

Now, when it comes to putting India under the microscope, we've not got our ethnic wear but, there are styles, silhouettes, sleeve cuts, neck-lines to work with. And of course, since we already know that the list of brands is endless, both old and new. This is where, I as a blogger come to your aid.

I'd like to introduce you to Pune based designer Namita Kataria. She's completed her studies in Fashion Design and exudes a fierce passion for designing, incorporating this drive into her striking yet comfortably efficient designs, which she displays through her dream venture 'ATARA'.

Invariably catering to all sub-catagories of clothing : ethnic/traditional wear, wedding attires, casual/evening/formal wear, kids wear and bespoke custom fit tailoring. All that plus they have even branched into accessories design (footwear, jewelry etc).

The team at 'ATARA' strives for handcrafted perfection, producing innovative ensembles designed to sate the client's palate. The apparels by 'ATARA' are an enterprising concoction where in the finest weaves, threads and other surface ornamentation techniques are used.

For my collaboration with 'ATARA' i did a shoot in 3 outfits from their collection.

Look 1 : Namita toned down the stiff authentic obi belt and incorporated it with a casual feel in this two piece ensemble, along with Mandarin cuffs she pairing it with a comfortable three-fourth palazzo. This Blue & White combo by 'ATARA' is a 'must-have' for all. It's perfect for anytime of the day or night, and just about any occasion.

Look 2. It's a kaftan, it's a salwar-kameez, I'm adoring the innovative mix of silhouette, sleeve & style. Whichever creative concoction inspired Namita, I don't care, I love it! Another outfit that is perfect anytime anywhere. Fun, Elegant, c'est maginifique.

Look 3. Simple is Chic, simple is bold; Gabrielle Chanel understood that and so does Namita Kataria. This quaint lehenga by 'ATARA' needs no additional styling. The peach-salmon hue sets a warm and cozy feel for the wearer along with a sense of pride in one's style statement. I'd say the subtle 'keyholes' add the right amount of tasteful sexiness. I can just picture it when Diwali finally gets here; the lights, the fireworks and me, in this beau of an ensemble.

From what i have witnessed, 'ATARA' truly does cover all realms of dressing clients, without a doubt they have it all, threads for everyone in the family.

Froyo Friday Girls

Trying to make Froyo Fridays a ritual now. Was so much fun hanging with my sister Nikita and Priya for delish loads of Froyo at Menchies in Koregaon Park, Pune. Thank you Priya for capturing so many candid moments of us. Nothing like a day out with the girls, get nails done, grab a froyo, click fun pictures and then hit a bar for some happy hour cocktails and groove to moonwalk beats. 
Viernes Perfecto!

Me - Playsuit by STALKBUYLOVE, Mini Backpack by KOOVS, White boots from Singapore

Co-ordinated Rooftops

Berry lips, accent braids, iridescent makeup, crop tops, choker necklaces. I guess it's safe to say that in the cycle of Fashion 'what goes around, comes back around'.

The 90's are making a headline comeback worldwide, be it the catwalks or the streets. With the likes of Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne & Gigi Hadid leading the International style squad with exquisite variants of crop tops and choker necklaces.

Okay! Now, that we're all up to date about trending style fronts, let's move on to 'where to buy'. Fortunately I don't have to rummage through hordes of stores and boutiques.
Why? One might ask.
Stalk Buy Love! that's why!

I've recently acquired this beau of a blue ensemble, its called the 'Alaz'. A two-piece outfit, wear as is or split the combo. The off-shoulder crop top can be paired with just about anything and wearable anywhere. Similarly the mid-high waist shorts can be worn with an array of tops. I teamed them up with the gorgeous lace up heels by Steve Madden and quilted bag by Lavie

Chokers are one of my favorite bold accessory trend this season. Accessory/Jewellery designers all over the world are embracing this revival of the choker necklace,and we fashion crazed enthusiasts are loving the end results.

The 'Ring' Choker is a welcome new addition to our finely curated fashion at Mariposa Love. The black and white metal merged with a sense of chic and power, adds to one's outfit as the perfect statement accessory. We have spotted endless celebrities and bloggers around the world rocking these ring chokers.

I absolutely feel this outfit exudes my personal style, free like a bird, strong like a lioness!

ARTSIE VILLE - Jewelry House Feature

An inevitable dilemma that many of us face, while getting dressed, what jewellery to wear? After all, the right piece of jewellery brings the whole outfit and look together. Put a woman's outfit into perspective, each item of clothing or accessory helps piece together a 'Statement'. A statement that expresses one's individuality, one's creative authenticity, one's sense of fashion.

'Artsie Ville', two words, one mission, to bring forth a host of hand-crafted jewellery in a variety of unique and bold accents that echo a welcome respite of quirk and style.

Based in New Delhi 'Artsie Ville' with their team of skilled craftsmen and masters, handcraft each piece with immense care and great efforts are put in the details of each work of art. Not only do they produce their own designs but also create masterpieces on custom orders. Brass moulded into intricate pieces of jewellery enamelled in a hue 'Brilliant Gold', their fusion inspired jewellery is perfect for every occasion, often or rare. Whether it be ethnic wear, western wear or fusion; street style or couture, 'Artsie Ville' has designs that will match whatever your wardrobe/closet has within.

I've picked out a few favorites from their collection and just love the combinations I came up with. First off, I paired The 'Amber' Earrings with a tropical print shoulder cutout top and sheer skirt. Et voila : "Subtle Chic".

Harry Potter had his hallows, and I think I found mine: The 'Bernice' Ring, The 'Beth' Necklace & The 'Daisey' Earrings. One words sums all three: Stunning! It works beautifully with this cocktail dress and I wouldn't be surprised it'd work spectacularly even if I'd been wearing an 'Oscars de la Renta'.

Finally, needless to say, I own a good number of Indian Ethnic Wear. Pairing The 'Clara' Ring and The 'Felisha' Earrings, styled with an elegant salwar-kameez, worked spot on to create a vibe of bold yet demure sophistication. C'est parfait.

You're not 'making a statement', You ARE 'The Statement'. I stand by those words, and so does 'Artsie Ville'. Their designs are elegant yet modern and fun; just like a smile, wearing it makes all the difference.

I picked out my favorites, now you go and pick yours.
