Amrapali: Preview

I adore Amrapali, I think their jewelry is absolutely fabulous! You are always sure to find something that is either traditional with a modern twist or modern with a traditional twist but always something that is unique and fantastic! Love their Khan market store in Delhi, am yet to leave empty-handed once am in, a bauble or two always makes its way in...

Now that the gushing is out of the way...the fashion week preview of Amrapali has me worried. If someone didn't caption it 'Amrapali', I wouldn't have ever guessed...

Though disappointed at the preview, we are still looking forward to the Autumn/Winter show...and hoping our worst fears don't come true...

Strange Arabic inspired designs, i guess that is where the money is...lots of women in the middle east wear huge rings (after all it is the only part of the body you can see)

actually some of the finest designs are seen in the middle east. i have friends from africa owning jewelery synonymous with the tribes they come from. those may not look welcoming for day to day wear, and not my personal style, but when it stands to represent a culture, mood, occasion or even a serious fashion statement i think they are very expressive and beautiful.

seriously! everythin's so busy and clashin'.

I still think the very first design is good though.

Sherry, in reply to your comment about African designs, they are beautiful, I have peices from Somalia (yes Somalia) that are to die for, and though completely different from Indian jewellery look great when worn. The problem here is the model was made to wear all of the jewellery togeather, hence creating an eyesore for some.

Alexander McQueen's Fall 2008 RTW Collection has some beautiful authentic looking Indian (maybe inspired) jewelleries.
