Soucika by Kamal Raj Manickath at Bangalore Fashion Week Summer Online 14th Edition

The Collection Named ‘Chaya’

The word Chaya is derived from the Sanskrit origin meaning, “Shades of colors”. Just as the title goes, the collection is purely about how colors define fashion.

Seizing inspiration from one of the interesting form of arts called Dot Painting, which uses color as a chief factor, the garments are designed in an inimitable way that it takes Dot Art to a whole new level in fashion!

A not so ancient art form, Dot Painting, having its history from Australia is a sacred art of rendering one’s identity onto the canvas in the form of colorful dots.

The collection ‘CHAYA’ is one of the kind which genuinely depicts the distinctiveness of a woman!

Confused about resort wear?

Trust us, you are not the only ones who are confused about resort wear and trust us one more time as we say this – Resort wear is not only about bikinis, monokinis and hot pants. It is much more than that. Would you ever consider wearing a resort wear to a date? To an evening party? Or your friend’s wedding or your own wedding? Sounds intriguing rite?

Resort wear was started as a fashion trend only for the elite, the upscale and affluent customers who preferred spending their post Christmas weeks in exotic locations. Very recently the trend has been accepted as a year round fashion clothing style and is being accepted widely on the runway around the world.

Resort wear is usually made of soft and high quality fabrics like cotton, silk, georgette or poplins. Something which is very easy to wear, breathable and quick to pack.

We live in a country which is in a fashionably developing stage, hence the knowledge of resort wear is still on a growing step. People forget the fact that beaches are not only about skimpy swim wears, hats and giant sunglasses. So in this post we will learn about the segregation of resort wear.

Did you know that resort wear can be divided into three styles? Resort formal, resort semi formal and resort casual? We bet your jaws are touching your office table right now. We don’t blame you.

1. Resort formal – Something exquisite, something chic and elegant, something which accentuates your lady like features. A resort formal wear could be a long maxi dress, a flowy skirt or a body hugging tunic. Anything that would be perfect for a date night at the beach, to attend a formal family function or to go for a little sophisticated social evening.

2. Resort semi formal – Something that would go from brunch till dinner date. Something which can be worn with flats and high heels as well. Like a sun dress, knee length skirt and crop top.

3. Casual resort wear – Baggy georgette or silk pants, paired with strapless top, match it with a flat or wedges. Casual resort wear is perfect to go for shopping with your friends, take an evening stroll around the beach, or go just any other random activity.

When it comes to creating your own style, there is no end to innovation so you can mix and match and make you resort ensemble even more interesting by adding accessories to it.

We hope this post will help you get ready for Spring 2016 and should you need any assistance then feel free to get in touch with us and if you want to invest in some fabulous resort wear then drop by our store or visit our website http://www.soucika.com Source Blog

From the Director’s Desk – 5 Questions with the man himself

Hello there ladies,
Soucika as you already know takes pride in creating immaculate pieces of clothing and if there is one more thing that we are proud of – is our relationship with our clients. Yes, we do not believe in just selling garments but how happy we can make our customers by giving them what they desire. Soucika has a vision, mission and goal and with hard work and determination, we are all set to make a difference in the fashion world.

Last week we got a chance to chit chat with the man behind the brand. Our creative director Mr.Kamal Manickath, whose love for fashion and design lead him to creating a bespoke brand. So here is an exclusive short but sweet interview for the very first time in our blog –

1. Tell us a bit about the Philosophy of Soucika?
People in Bangalore are from various walks of life, who have various demands, in terms of price, when it comes to clothing. The philosophy behind Soucika is to provide impeccable bespoke fashion service to Bangaloreans. When Soucika was started in Bangalore, there wasn’t much option for bespoke designer clothes in reasonable price and that was the main objective of us – To provide perfect fit, on time delivery, customized fashion.

2. What excites you most in fashion now?
Fashion is unpredictable, it is fresh each day! Every day is exciting for me !

3. What do you have to say about the Contemporary styles in India?
Indian fashion has been drastically changed in terms of silhouettes and colors. Fashion like katori blouses have vanished, and people prefer more of crop tops now. Red and golden which was found predominantly in fashion has now decreased to more of subtle yet vibrant colors.

4. Tell us about Soucika’s Vision?
To be the best fashion brand in both retail and bespoke service, internationally. We are soon to launch our virtual dress designer, which gives the users the liberty of designing their dream dress with just few clicks away from anywhere they are connected to the web.

5. What according to you are two Bridal essentials?
THE must have bridal essentials are amazing lingerie, fine and trendy jewelleries to go with the dress.
