Fashion to Décor: Great Gatsby Inspired
With Great Gatsby being released all over the world last week and here in India tomorrow there is definitely a buzz around the Style, Fashion, Make-up and Design of the Cast and Set recreated by Baz Luhrmann starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan. I for one am super excited to watch the movie at the preview tonight as I have not read the book and nothing excites me more than Vintage Style. Normally after reading the books I am always disappointed by the movie but that is not to be the case this time. Well 1920’s has been in trending for quite a while in the fashion circuit, while art-deco is also inspiring décor. So this week’s Fashion to Décor is to recreate the look of 1920’s in your home. While Bryton Taylor tells us how to throw a Great Gatsby inspired party, while The Beauty Gypsy helps us with the make-up.

Fashion to Décor: Trend Neon
Neon has been quite a trend in Fashion the past few weeks. And similarly Home décor has been influenced by Neon accessories, especially in Kitchen equipment. Fellow blogger Katie has done Trend Neon for this weeks Tag a Trend and we have taken the trend from Fashion to Décor. So you can go a bit wild this summer with Neon in your wardrobe or living space, but the rule of less applies for both, unless you want to feel like you live in a circus
or are dressed for one.

Fashion to Décor: Trend Parisian Flavour Continuing with the flavour of the week, we have Paris in our Fashion to Décor trend as well. We all know Paris is known for its chic fashion and style statement but it also influences our does it really influence décor? Well Eiffel Tower is one of the most popular graphics to be used on décor but even besides that, who would not like to bring home a bit of Paris, a smell (candles), a taste (champagne or Macaroon) or a touch into their Living space?
ELLE Fashionwear had the brand’s first ever blogger meet in Delhi.The idea was to discuss the nuances of French fashion with the ELLE Fashion design team along with styling tips! You get to choose an outfit from the collecting and then get complimentary hair styling to go with your Parisian look!
Since it is Spring in Paris and my week dedicated to Paris I decided to swing by and see what they had to offer.
The Spring Summer collection is all about an optimistic, liberal and unique persona with designs revolving around six themes relevant to the season.The Botanical theme unveils a journey to the unexplored dimensions of botanical life. Experience pristine beauty with ‘Clarity’; pieces borne from this idea define sophisticated casual wear.The Summer Party has ultra-feminine summer dresses in soothing pastels as well as rich and bright colours aiming to keep your days as chic as your nights.Add a bit of elegant quirkiness with the Give Me Blue inspiration. Watch naïve romance and a hippy free spirit come together to create Nutopia in a delicate interplay between over-exposed colours, heady florals and lace.Feel the warmth of summer with a bright ensemble reflecting the Colour Theory.
My take of dressing up for Mid-day in Paris.
Going through a makeover in an outfit suggested by their designer
And the final look, complete with hair and make-up. What do you think?
Fashion to Décor- Trend Lace
There is something about lace besides the fact that it is definitely the most sensual fabric alongside silk, it is feminine and delicate yet mysterious and elegant. It has a vintage aura reminiscent of times gone by and yet can be just as modern while maintaining an allure of classic style. Fellow blogger Katie has done Trend Lace for this weeks Tag a Trend and we have taken the trend from Fashion to Décor. Showcasing today are products inspired from this intricate material- Lace*

Manish Arora, India’s most acclaimed international fashion designer brings the runways of world fashion into Indian homes by collaborating with Portico New York for ‘Manish Arora for Portico’. Four collections in vibrant tones and vivid patterns combine the aesthetics of old and new India, a beautiful combination of global perspectives and traditional Indian motifs, shapes and colors. Fourteen patterns divided into four distinct collections, Arora’s designs range from elegant navies and burgundy to exuberant pinks and yellows – the types of vivid colors and patterns that first
elevated him to the global fashion scene.
Each of these designs is a beautiful combination of global perspectives and traditional Indian motifs, shapes and colors. The ‘Heart Collection’, for instance, draws on Arora’s own favorite motifs – vivid colored hearts, flowers & starbursts, while the ‘Signature Collection’ sports witty Indian-inflected nods to playing cards. In the ‘Swan Collection’, Arora looks to the ordered symmetry and opulent floral patterns of European Baroque, while the ‘Lotus Collection’ uses vibrant blues and greens to accentuate the elegance of India’s auspicious flower.
Each pattern in the Manish Arora Collection for Portico is available as a complete bedding set, including a double bed sheet teamed with four pillow cases, double bedcovers and a comforter. The products are available as a complete set and also as individual pieces.
