Designer: Kunal Kaushik an acclaimed designer and a born artist, Kunal designs resplendent and redefining Assamese tradition elusive weave that lures one into his signature rhythm and rendition that merges relevant global sensibility. A dream cream color mekhela chadar warp and weft assamese motifs dhulia and nasani (the drummer and damsel dancer) with Kunal's quintessential use of color shocking Fuschia pink and periwinkle purple in mina. After wearing Kunal, I felt like a modern princess. Kunal designs are not just to wear but cherish and celebrate. No doubt why Kunal is seen as an avant great designer.
Event: Assam convention -Assam convention is a celebration of the assamese diaspora in North America where the assamese community gets together to showcase Assamese culture, food, traditional talent, and invited artists. Every year it is celebrated on July 4th weekend around North America in different cities. This time it was celebrated in Washington DC and the 39th Assam convention.
A gorgeous Kunal Kaushik Mekhela chadar does not need much yet going to a formal event, I added a few accessories from my side. As it was a signature assamese event, I don't want to add anything that takes away all the charm. A gold choker to team up with the mekhela chadar. I decided to wear a hair bun that was a little unusual for me and took a risk as hair up always makes my rounded face a little more rounder. I wanted to give the Assamese look a touch of the southern part of India by wearing jasmine in my hair bun. Wearing flower always enhances the beauty and the smell of fresh jasmine personify peace and purity. With the traditional look, I added a final touch with a classic Sabyasachi box clutch jaguar. Let me know your thoughts and have a fantastic weekend.
