Newyork Fashion Week diary and Sanjukta Dutta's "Alphool"


With Sanjukta Dutta

  Attending one of the Big 4 fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, Paris) is on every fashion blogger's or fashion affectionado's bucket list. Check-in into the prestigious NYFW in Global Fashion Collective Fall/Winter 2022 was an experience of a lifetime. This year, Global Fashion Collective in NYFW F/W 2022 featured three designers - Luis Corrales, Sanjukta Dutta, and Young-Eun Lee. Here, I am psyched up covering my birth state and India's ardent designer, Sanjukta Dutta. Seen in celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Mary Kom, and Britain's Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to masses in Assam, who have brought Mekhela Chadar from the sublime land of Assam to the Global Frontiers. Witnessing her immaculate and artful collection Alphool in NYFW F/W 2022 was my moment of pride and pleasure.

Engineer turned fashion designer Sanjukta's designs always speak volumes of creativity and indigenousness. Using a splash of vivid colors and patterns, always in harmony, sets her apart from other designers. 

 The heritage revivalist designer Sanjukta Dutta's Alphool in NYFW F/W 2022 unveiled predominantly the color blue and different shades of blue with a hint of green and red. Affluent Assam Silk warped, and weft is used as the principal fabric of this collection. Indigenous motifs of Assam, like Trees, Birds (Peacock), Kinkhap, Flowers(Hibiscus), Budha, Tajmahal, Geometric patterns, and small Dots, give one-of-a-kind facets. Alphool is embodied with statement sleeves, large collars with bibs, chunky embellishments, and crochet details. 

Whereas, on one hand, there are long feminine pleats and panels, on the other hand, edgy asymmetrical cuts, quirky long pencil skirts along with silk hooded blouses, jogger's pants keeping up with the trend athleisure. Whereas fabrics and motifs give a glimpse of Assam (the Designer's native state) with Indian classical antiquity, at the same time, the cuts, silhouettes, and sleeves define modern and global sensibility. A sling bag and handmade collard necklace entice her collection, too. 

Kudos to Sanjukta Dutta for a rebellious attempt to unfold the show with Mekhela Chadar (Traditional Assamese attire) followed by pants, capes, vests, voluminous skirts, silk jogger pants, paneled skirts, and hooded tunics. In the chill of February Brooklyn in NYFW F/W 2022, Sanjukta's delightful collection not only brought beautiful aesthetic warmth but also stood irresistibly tall in its own right. Just like her journey from Assam to NYC Fashion Week, her collection is just like the American dream, amiable and achievable.

As in NYFW F/W 2020, I was covering Sanjukta Dutta, and I decided to wear her signature Blue Assam Silk mekhela chadar with Assamese alphabets and both gold and silver threads. I wore it with a belt and long statement earrings. My hair is natural and open, and for makeup, I have brown smoky eyes and bold red lips. Since I was going to the fashion week and backstage, I chose to wear a flat and, considering NYC's winter, a black wool coat and a Burberry bag.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
