#DesignerSpotlight – Sachin & Babi

Sociala and Style Sachin and Babi for Anthropologie 115

One of my favorite things is discovering new South Asian designers with a style philosophy that I believe in. Thankfully, Anthropologie is the perfect place to find such designers. Browsing through the sales section at the F Street Anthro in Washington D.C., I found this green midi dress with embroidered flowers that fit perfectly. When I looked at the label, I was intrigued to learn more about the brand. I’m excited to have found the husband and wife duo behind Sachin & Babi and Noir Sachin & Babi. Over the last two decades, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have been developing embroidery and appliqué concepts. Sachin and Babi are known for their contemporary and evening wear that expresses their modern creativity and South Asian heritage.

#WeddingWear – Trend spotting – Floral Prints by Mitan Ghosh

Social and Style Mitan Ghosh Collaboration Indian Saree Floral Print

//Saree by designer Mitan Ghosh//

If you follow me on Snapchat (Username: SocialandStyle), you know I had a little truth session yesterday. Lately it’s been tough to keep up with blogging while managing work, wedding planning, and staying in touch with family and friends. I was even thinking of putting the blog on hold while I recharged and felt like I had more time. Then I woke up yesterday morning to find  I had been featured on Washingtonian Magazine’s “35 DC Fashion and Style Instagram Feeds You Should Follow Right Now“! “Having started her blog to share her South Asian fashion, there’s lots of inspiration in this Instagram account—including what to wear to an Indian wedding,” I am so proud to share my love for South Asian culture and it was such an honor to be included among such talented women. It’s moments like these, and your messages, emails, and comments that keep me to keep going. Thank you. I am motivated more than ever to keep the blog going and create content that you hopefully will love!
