Begum of Pataudi Kareena Kapoor Khan closed the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2016 as showstopper for celebrated designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee on August 28. The actress who is expecting was super confident as she sashayed down the LFW 2016 ramp at the grand finale. Looking resplendent and glowing in a shimmering heavily embroidered but comfortable traditional outfit, Kareena Kapoor Khan showed off her baby bump. The Veere Di Wedding actress revealed at the LFW 2016 grand finale that walking the ramp with her baby for the “first time” was an emotional moment for her.

“For me, it’s quite an emotional moment, as this was the first time we (Kareena and her unborn baby) took the ramp together. It was a moment to cherish,” said Kareena Kapoor Khan at the post show press conference at LFW Winter Festive 2016. Kareena, who has been hitting back at people in the industry objecting to her pregnancy as far as her career is concerned, like director Rohit Shetty, yet again emphasised that pregnancy is a normal thing and one can continue working. “I was happy and confident (on the ramp),” Kareena said, adding, “Pregnant woman can walk and fly and for me it’s absolutely normal. When it comes to my work, acting is my passion and I will work till I die. As long as I am doing what I love, I am going to do that.”

Just recently Kareena had said that she is going to work until she is in her eighties, and the spunky actress has been saying this for a while now. Even when she got married to actor Saif Ali Khan and became his Begum, she had said the same thing, implying that she is not one to give up her career just for the sake of it. We admire this quality in Kareena, which is such an inspiration to young women who want to pursue their careers post marriage.

Reviving the ancient tradition of baby wearing, the founder of Kol Kol Baby Carrier, Bayiravi Mani recently collaborated with famous designer Karishma Shahani Khan of Ka Sha to launch her all-new collection of baby carriers in vibrant colors at the Lakme Fashion Week inMumbai.

This year, ergonomic baby carriers were featured as part of the Ka Sha show at the Lakme Fashion Week, which saw two moms walked alongside the designer, a mom herself, all wearing Kol Kol Baby Carriers in fabrics designed by Ka Sha, in style instantly becoming a huge hit and setting the ramp on fire! Baby wearing is an art of carrying babies using a long fabric to hold the baby in the most natural way.

It has been in our culture since ancient times when mothers used to carry their baby using a long sturdy shawl, cloth and even bed sheets to snuggle up their babies and get their household chores done with ease. This ancient tradition has been embraced by young parents and is soon becoming a welcome trend as well as a style statement!

Kol Kol is the vision of Bayiravi Mani, who wanted to design beautiful and ergonomic carriers following CPSIA standards, to make sure that the parents with new-born babies are comfortable, happy and free to explore the world with their baby in tow!

Taking forward her vision, Bayiravi has been manufacturing ergonomic baby carriers in various easy-to-use forms, like Ring slings, half buckle, full buckle and Mei Tai.

Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the UAE, presented the celebrated Indian designer Manish Malhotra at the unveiling of his winter festive collection during the kick-off of Lakmé Fashion Week in Mumbai, India yesterday (August 24).

Famed for his lavish Bollywood costume designs, Malhotra’s stunning show featuring 75 models was attended by more than 400 guests who experienced an innovative adaptation of a traditional opening, ‘Etihad Airways Presents Manish Malhotra’, a showcase shot completely in virtual reality (VR) – a first for an Indian designer.

Etihad Airways’ signature boarding music featured in the finale of the show held in the courtyard of the ITC Grand Central hotel.

Bollywood movie stars Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput walked the ramp at last night’s show wearing stunning outfits designed by Malhotra. Guests included actresses Shilpa Shetty, Dia Mirza and Sushmita Sen from India’s film capital, together with corporate executives and fashion media.

The carrier’s award-winning Airbus A380s, currently serving Mumbai, London, Melbourne and New York from its Abu Dhabi hub, features The Residence, an iconic three-room suite in the air – a perfect fit for high flyers from the fashion industry.

The second edition of North East India Fashion Week (NEIFW) concluded in Itanagar on Sunday with Meghalaya’s Rupert W Lynrah showcasing his Fusion Mix of Indo Traditional and Western Wear which underlined an increasingly important topic in fashion – that of sustainability.

In an era where throwaway fashions are being increasingly questioned by a public that is concerned about the impact clothes have on the environment, Lynrah said, after returning to Shillong, “Being the only representative from the state, it was my honour to showcase my traditional Khasi jainsems and a mix of traditional and western wear, and promote sustainable eco-fashion by featuring ryndia silk in the collection, which is a natural, organic and eco-friendly product.”This edition of NEIFW, which ran from August 19-21 in the Arunachal Pradesh capital, emphasised the importance of weavers by introducing their creations to the fashion world and promoting the khadi movement, something that Lynrah feels strongly about.

“We have to educate customers about the importance of sustainability, the human impact on the environment and social responsibility. The textile industry is one of the most polluted and this has to change. Fashions are shaped by demand and it is up to the consumer to choose products that support sustainability,” he said.

The Itanagar event, organised by the non-profit organisation Affluent Ray of Light (ARL), witnessed the participation of over 20 young designers and weavers from the region who celebrate traditional fabric and patterns and have successfully carved out a niche for themselves in the fashion industry.

The goal is to promote and preserve indigenous textiles in today’s world and Lynrah’s designs reflect this, as he explained: “My collection was a fusion of ethnic traditions with a modern twist. The overall experience of NEIFW was excellent. It was a fashion show where the weavers and designers came together to promote the rich handloom heritage of the North East that is so diverse in its colours and patterns. It really was a celebration of our traditions.”Lynrah has been in the fashion business for the past 12 years, but counts his near seven-year stint at retailer Splash in Dubai as a “turning point” and three years ago he took the plunge and launched his own fashion label, RwL Designs in Shillong.

Among the other designers at the three-day gala fashion event were Arita Kashyap and Rohila Engtipi from Assam; Nana Gona, Milli Indira Dangngo, Techi Yapar, Minu Mara and jewellery designer Renu Logum from Arunachal Pradesh; Lalthabiki Chawngthu from Mizoram; Gloria Ovung and Ongtiong Kichu from Nagaland; Archana Kabra from Rajasthan; and Vanshala Mishra from Bihar.

The invited weavers were drawn from several states in the region, including Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Nagaland.

Speaking on the grand success of the festival, Chief Operating Officer and founder of Affluent Ray of Light, fashion designer Yana Ngoba said, “The North East has an immense artistic potential. It is sad to see that weavers today are giving up their age-old traditions in search of jobs which pay better. With North East India Fashion Week we want to promote the weavers of the region who live in disguise but are so important for the designers across the world. At NEIFW our focus is to support weavers of the North East and brilliant emerging designers.”

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is all set to join supermodel Heidi Klum's reality fashion show Project Runway, Season 15. Yep, you read that right.

The talented star is on a roll. Be it playing a role in the film Baywatch, or collaborating with the super cool Pitbull on her single Exotic, or being the leading lady of the popular prime time television show Quantico, Priyanka is hitting all the correct notes as far as the Western entertainment industry is concerned (pun intended).

In fact, the stunning actress has turned down more than six Hollywood films, according to a report in The Times of India.

Priyanka has her eyes set on television right now. The actress said so herself.

"My schedule is water-tight till March, 2017 as I am contractually bound to wrap up the second season of Quantico. It would be great if season three comes along as it's a progressive show, which airs in 200 territories worldwide. I get to interact with an audience that may have never known me through my feature films," the actress told The Times of India.

But she definitely found some time to star as a guest judge on Project Runway. Project Runway is a popular American fashion reality show that encourages new talent in the fashion industry. The other guests on the show include biggies like actress Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries fame, actress Camilla Belle, and Marie Claire Editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider among others.

The actress took to Instagram to announce the news, and we couldn't be happier. She even got the others to do a Namaste and a yoga pose, all celebrating India!
