Shubhra's Designer Spring Collection Goes Places


05/12/2010

Spring seems to have finally arrived in New England, after cold temperatures, flooding in March and the drinking water issues recently! Warm weather fashions are needed as outdoor events for Mother's day, graduations and weddings are coming up. 
April Spring break took us to southern Florida. It really felt like we were traveling to a different part of the world. The air was warm, the sun was shining, gorgeous people, food, beaches and locales. The first resort stop at was the Breakers in Palm Beach. An old world hotel and resort, the decor and ambience echoed a by-gone age. Jasmine, orchids and palm trees gave way to graceful formal gardens, secluded courtyards with waterfalls and pristine beaches. Fine dining with excellent seafood preparations, a chef's garden for herbs and vegetables and children's programs made it easy to have a multi-generational vacation. Perfect spot for dressing in scarves and little dresses! Adding some pictures of fashions that were inspired this season by my mother and mother- in- law's gorgeous starched cotton Kota saris that they used to wear in the hot summers in India. I recycled those saris to make them into gorgeous one of a kind summer dresses and pajama pants, each one is different, unique and elegant.

Our next stop was South Beach, Miami. The new W hotel, the hot spot that everyone wants to be seen at. Modern decor, lots of marble, granite, white and black decor and gorgeous people.  Mr. Chow's is the famous Chinese fusion restaurant on the property. Included are pictures of our new collection of scarves in silk inspired by the trends on the beach. South Beach is lined with fabulous shops, restaurants, fashionable people and a lot of spanish culture. The homes of the rich and famous dot the inter-coastal. The Bar Harbor shopping area and palm tree lined eateries take out door dining to a wonderful casual level that is so special for us from the north. Italian, cuban and bistro style cuisine at it's best! 

Locally, we were at the Harvard Business School- Apparel and Retail club fashion show featuring some of our silk styles from the website in April at Mantra in Boston. We donated the Kala Koyela silk jacket to their fundraiser event during a live auction. Here's to a marvelous spring season. Catch us at Stylefixx- girls' night out- on May 12th/ 13th at the Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts, Tremont str, Boston MA, 5 p.m to 10 p.m on both nights. The place to be seen eating, drinking, shopping and trend watching with your friends!
