Halloween Weekend 2017

Halloween.. I feel like people either love it or hate it. I always kinda fell in the in-between and usually pull together a costume a day or two before.

This year, I decided to plan ahead of time because it also happened to fall on my father-in-law’s 70th birthday weekend. He decided to throw a costume party so we had to make it one to remember!

Supin and I dressed up as a dead doctor and nurse duo – full of cuts, blood and bruises. Definitely not my typical halloween look, but it was so much fun to get into character and create the final looks using LOTS of stage blood, eyeliner, dark eyeshadow, liquid latex and a whole lot of patience 😉 Here are the final looks:

  

What did you guys dress up as this year? Let me know in the comments down below!

XOXO,

NYFW RECAP

Another NYFW in the books! Fashion Week is such an amazing event that leaves you feeling completely exhausted, but SO energized at the same time. This year, I got to experience the SS’18 collections of some world class designers, including Galtiscopio, Runa Ray, Cindy Monteiro, Dan Liu and Vaishali Shadangule. Each show was vastly different from the last – from the lighting, to the performances, to of course, the collections.

My favorites:

Parisian watch label, Galtiscopio kicked off their collection with a performance by Ray-J (which was so fun!). The line consisted of elegant dresses that had a modern, yet glitzy touch. Color schemes included ocean blue, gold/bronzes and romantic reds.

 

Cindy Monteiro took traditional cotton and linen garments and created fashion forward looks – accessorizing them with raw materials including shells and sugarcane. The collection, named Bernadina was brought to life as models walked down the all white runway barefoot, illustrating both the strength and softness of a woman.

Finally, Vaishali Shadangule’s show was all about the senses. Her Indian-influenced music complimented her looks, which were a culmination of East meets West. The drapery took influence from the traditional Indian saree, but was draped in less traditional ways, which brought her pieces to life.

Until next time!

XOXO,
Shaira
