Tradition with a Twist

Fashion, Uncategorized

Palak Parikh, an upcoming designer is this week’s fashion crush thanks to her gorgeous interpretations of Lucknowi embroidery. Usually I’m not the one to go ga-ga over embroidery but Palak has taken the best of the traditional Lucknowi style and mixed it up with raised floral designs.

Would you believe this is her first collection? Collection-wise the range is amazing, encompassing saris, pants, dresses, lehengas… phew… you get the idea!

Here are some of my favorite looks, which incidentally will flatter a full-figured lady 😉 –


A mermaid gown with a delicate net over-layer to draw attention away from the thighs or stomach


Kimono style sleeved jacket in panels for busty ones with a full pleated lehenga


Spaghetti strapped flared dress for an easy-breezy look


A cropped off-shoulder top to accentuate curves with high-waist flared pants
