My new anarkali dress from 7aat Rang in Birmingham

Last weekend I attended the engagement of a close family member and I left it to the very last minute to find an outfit! Thankfully, I had a visit to Birmingham scheduled in for the weekend before and managed to find this ready-made anarkali dress from the shop 7aat Rang on Stratford Road.

Read on to see the close up details and how I wore it!

SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi Geometric Monochrome Collection

This collection from SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi really caught my eye when I saw the bold geometric prints strut down the runway at the recent Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive fashion show.

Whilst the Lakme Fashion Weeks pieces come with a price tag which runs into thousands of pounds, the outfits I'm blogging about today are actually much more affordable, but they still have that wow factor!

Asian Fashion Blogger Meet Up September 2014

When I started Asian Fashion Blog way back in 2007, there were very few people blogging about asian fashion and that meant there was hardly anyone to talk to about it and share tips/experiences with. So it made me really happy this weekend, to attend the first Asian Fashion and Wedding Blogger meet-up!

Organised by Nina, from The Asian Fashion Journal, 12 of us met up at The Book Club in London for a chance to meet a lot of the people we've been talking to online, but hadn't met in person.

Here we all are (minus "Ashichick", my sister, travel companion and sometimes blogger, who very kindly offered to take the photo)

Left to Right: Mani, Rabbia, Yasmin, Kayennat, Sharn, Nazma (me!), Nina, Nigar, Raj, Sara, Mandavi

Topics of conversation included weddings, sharing stories of our individual asian fashion shopping experiences, designers/stores we loved (and those we hated!), our favourite fashion weeks, upcoming asian fashion and wedding events and lots of talk about life outside blogging - most of us have full-time jobs/study too!

Here are links to check out the blogs of these lovely ladies:

All in all, it was a great afternoon and I can't speak for everyone else, but I definitely came away feeling inspired!

We haven't set a date for the next meet up yet, but there's been talking of having it in Birmingham, and then the next one in Manchester, and the next...who knows!
