Festive season is around the corner and so is the fever to shop to look one's best during the celebration. As a kid, I had always loved festivals for the numerous shopping trips I took with my mother. For me, the best part about the festivities was to get all decked up to attend the Puja and later going out with friends and family for pandal hopping followed by dining at my favorite restaurant. Fast forward to 2017, nothing has changed much except for the fact that I am no more accompanied by Mom for shopping. This year I did my Pujo shopping from Max Fashion from their recently launched festive collection.
Max Fashion celebrated the advent of festive season by launching their new collection. The collection is about bringing back the rich grandeur of Indian tradition yet giving it a modern touch. Max through its ‘Tavisha’ range offers a range of stylized garments comprising classic combinations of voluminous, vibrant and layered skirts with trendy cholis or crop tops, to complete the grand look of the festive season. It is a fusion of tradition and latest trends on the block and you can buy it from your nearest Max stores or online here.
From flared maxi skirt to embroidered tops their new collection is all about ethereal timeless textures and classic beauty. Once such outfit caught my eyes when I was there at the Max Fashion Store for their collection launch event. It was a gorgeous maxi skirt in maroon. The skirt was very simple with brocade detailing at the hem, however the voluminous flare made it look so royal. To style the skirt, I picked a black top with a thin strap. The top had golden detailing on it which went well with the Marsala skirt. As I was shooting on a rather sunny day, I tied my hair in a low bun and added a pair of black round sunnies to give a retro look.
I shot the outfit at the Parasnath Jain temple which is located right next to my house. This temple is some 150 years old and its construction was initiated in the year 1867 by Ray Badridas Bahadur. The interiors of the temple has been lavishly decorated with high quality mirrors, multi hued stones and glass made mosaics, while the outdoor area is surrounded with many hued flower gardens and sparkling fountains. The garden itself is decorated with blocks of glass mosaics and silver European-styled statues. One of the major attractions of the temple is a lamp, which is burning with ghee perpetually inside the sanctum sanctorum, since the inception of the temple in 1867. The whole environment of the temple radiates peace and serenity that has a very calming effect on the body and soul.
