Review | Online Shopping : Beat the trend with!

Sunday 8 September 2013

Hey everyone!
Hope you all had a nice weekend.. I had planned on shooting some outfits today, but well I got unwell and therefore rested at home the whole weekend.
But as I hadn't posted in a while, I decided upon introducing you all to an exciting online shopping website : which primarily deals with ethnic wear.

A contemporary look is what all of us covet. A nice Indo-western gown or a fusion outfit or an Indo-western lehenga makes the lady look fashionable, gorgeous and ravishing. The contemporary silhouettes, fluid drapes, sensuous feel of the fabric when combined with a designer cut all complemented with ethnic embroidery or ethnic detailing makes Indo-western gowns and Indo-western lehengas such a winner.

The primary reason that contributes to Indo-western gowns and lehengas’ steep popularity is that these outfits “amalgamate east and west” seamlessly. These outfits can also give any bride or a bride’s maid a contemporary, chic and glamorous look along with adding a unique dimension of Indian culture and heritage to the garment.

On  which was previously, there are designer pieces that are combinations of a churidhar, lehenga (short in length) worn with a corset. These outfits are winners because of great design yet these celebrate Indianness as these are very Indian in sensibility.  Then there are other lehengas that are extremely funky and stylish that can put any designer gown to shame.
The team of designers working for have been popular in India and abroad. Designers such as Manish Malhotra, Ritu Beri, JJ Valaya, Sabyasachi among many others have experimented with fusion wear that combines with best elements of East and West.
These fusion lehengas and gowns are extremely creative in the use of materials, cuts, drapes, silhouettes and styles. Younger women often choose these garments over salwar kameez as these are classy and elegant. The good news is that these dresses suit women with dusky complexion and also complement the Indian body types very well.

These dresses come in a large variety of colors such as blood red, deep maroon, light beige, amethyst purple, deep wine, refreshing peach, bright yellow, grey, silver, matte gold, emerald green, aqua green, white, navy blue and black. It is best to choose a dress in one color rather than a combination of two or three colors. Black, white, silver and grey are the safest bets as embellishments look best on these garments.

An Indo-western dress is best teamed with high heels, large chandelier ear rings, a bracelet and a neckpiece depending on the neckline of the dress. If the outfit is embellished with lot of shimmer then the dress is best worn with no jewellery so that the dress can take center stage.

About Kalkifashion was earlier known as Barcode 91. Kalkifashion is a start up, self funded premium online store for Indian ethnic wear from the house of Kalki. The website was launched in 2011 to make designer clothes available at affordable prices. The website ensures that no middlemen are involved in the selling process thus letting fashion-conscious customers get merchandise at attractive prices.
