The 31st edition of Amazon India Fashion Week organized by FDCI in association with NEXA recently got concluded where 100 + designers presented their ideas through the medium of ensembles on the runway and exhibit area, making it a memorable season. The event brought forward the ramp of Autumn Winter 2018 which showcased amazing designs, silhouettes and creations which had unmatched creativity which we loved. Team ChicLifeByte attended different shows of the five-day extravaganza and selected a few looks which delighted us and I am sure they would delight you as well! So here are our picks!
Fashion weeks are always loaded with fun and excitement with the latest style, trends, make-up as well as accessories. The complete look is complete only after experimenting more and creating styles that work. Everybody goes crazy with deciding outfits, accessories, shoes, jewellery and make-up with their looks and looking good always comes on priority for everyone.
What can make a dull outfit spark? Yes, its accessories- from what you are wearing on the neck to what you are carrying in your hand. What I like is that these accessories come in different styles and colours which give us so much variety to pair them with different outfits because some day we are at our glamorous best while other days we are in a sporty avatar to some days when we are just feeling too casual.
One of my favourite accessory is the one which I use to store my essentials. Be it a lipstick, wet tissues or my phone, it goes in my purse so that I can just take it out when I require it.
In India, we love our tea. Infact, a few days back while browsing one of the social media sites, I saw a creative which said “Tea is the energy drink of India”. This got me thinking and I had no reason to disagree with the statement.
Everyone loves drinking their favourite cup of tea be it green or black. However, tea is not just restricted to these. Now, there are also exotic blends that leave you happy with every sip you drink and refresh you with their taste & aromas. The Hillcart Tales is one such brand founded by Ashutosh Ghosh who has an eye for the finest blends and deep love for tea leaves.
If there is a magician in the restaurant world, it is Varun Puri! He turns around something we have on an everyday basis look so inspirational. We have already told you about his earlier venture Imly where he made street food look so inviting making sure its affordable too and this time it is Too Indian. Most of the dishes that we ate here were not what we would have eaten for the first time but the twists that he added and the presentation made all the difference. Let us give you a download of the yummy things!
We witnessed a spectacular pink show which smelt of girly things and lots of candies & lollipops! With a colour palette of corals, bright pinks, blacks, off-whites & greys all together checkered and hand-woven Merino yarns stitched together & the Portuguese lace & trims, tartans, stripes, colour pop up, the 3D laser cut flowers, ribbon embroideries, beadwork, crochet detailing, the Péro Fall Winter Spring Collection at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter’18 was a delight to watch!

A female goes through so much in her life! Puberty, hormonal changes, PMS, Menstruation…tackling life with all this not easy. One has to manage everything from education to career to marriage to settling to a new home. However, something that changes a women’s life completely is birth of a child. Yes, that’s the most blissful thing for a women, however it’s not a cakewalk.
Motherhood is no less than a blessing for a lady. My life completely changed after giving birth to Kiara. It is a bliss yet it comes with great responsibilities. Being a client servicing professional with an Advertising agency is a tedious task for a young woman who has recently become a mom. Late evening meetings, lengthy presentations, and sharp skills to make creative team understand client’s brief requires lots of patience and positive temperament. I really struggle hard with time investment for my little angel’s upbringing. It is tough to maintain a right balance between career and motherhood but what I am doing today is for my child’s better upbringing. Just after giving birth to Kiara, I was surrounded by a lot of curiosity raised by my relatives and friends that how am I going to cope-up with my career and the journey of motherhood. To bargain between the two was very difficult, one being the dream with which I have been raised up all my life and the other being my daughter, the most important part of my life. But I was very certain that I am not going to compromise in any circumstance whatsoever when comes to my child’s bright future and would like to give her the best amenities and facilities from her initial upbringing stage itself.
