2014 Indian and Pakistani bridal shopping guides for British Asian brides!

It's been nearly 7 years since I embarked upon the task of picking my wedding outfit...so you could say I'm a little out of touch when it comes to all the finer details.

Thankfully though, two of my favourite bloggers are sharing their experience of wedding shopping in 2014, here's links to their guides and a bit about why I think you'll find them useful!

The Asian Fashion Journal's Guide to Shopping in Mumbai, India

Nina, author of The Asian Fashion Journal got married recently and she's shared her guide to shopping in Mumbai. Although she ordered her main bridal dress from Aashni + Co in London, her visit to India included buying outfits for all her other wedding functions, and outfits for her mum and sister too. It's well worth a read!

Check out Nina's guide here.

Curly Fries Guide to Shopping for a Pakistani bridal online


Curly Fries announced her engagement recently and she has recommended 5 online sellers for Pakistani style bridals on a budget. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of sellers on the web, especially on Facebook, and it can be hard to decide who you can trust. CF has used some of these sellers before so her guide is a good place to start!

Check out CF's guide here.


Both of these bloggers have promised to share more of their bridal shopping experiences so it's definitely worth bookmarking their pages and checking in on them again! I know I can't wait to see more.

Trends from Pakistan Sunsilk Fashion Week 2014

The Pakistan Fashion Design Council's 7th Fashion Week was held in Lahore, Pakistan, earlier this month. Here are some of the looks from this 4-day event that caught my eye!

First up Mohsin Ali for Libas:
Now I know Chanel had models in trainers/sneakers at their 2014 Paris Fashion Week show, but to me they just don't work here at all!

House of Arsalan Iqbal
I liked the styling of this collection with the models wearing vintage looking explorer-style goggles and accessories. I also liked the relaxed loose feel to the outfits and the fact the look works on both men and women - it's all about those harem pants!
