Collection Description
                                                   Head Full of Dreams
Any living soul is obliged to own the liberty of spreading happiness, infinite happiness. In
India, we custom the festival Holi just to persuade the act of extending joy. Hand full of colors are strewn at each other to strip off the evil for the revelation of divine happiness hidden within and thereby forgiving one another with just the existence of love. One form of art which holds this as a cause is doodling. Doodle art originated as a Black and white portrait with miniature detailing which later allowed people to color the portrait the way they wish in infinite possible way, making them the creator! The same relates to happiness.
Our collection ‘Head full of dreams’, is about transforming a dream to a reality of spreadinghappiness among people like diffusing color smoke into air.
The collection ‘Head full of dreams’ is an enigma that could be fathomed in a countless aspectby the viewing individual. This collection is provoked from a divine mind Kamal Raj Manickath anticipating an inevitable world full of colors.

The collection holds 4 lehengas and 8 evening gowns presented in fabrics like lace, tulle, lasercutfabrics, chiffon and georgette with a palette purely obtained from the festival Holi. Thecollection is a specimen of colorful doodle art with fractal detailing in a wide color combo.

Source blog

After getting engaged if there is one thing that haunts every bride to be day and night, it is the thought of looking and feeling perfect on her big day. Her dream of being the Cinderella in a castle dancing with her Prince with her perfect smile, flawless skin, long and luscious hair. Sighh… well it’s natural to feel that way but are you planning to do anything about it or just dream about it? We hope not. That is why we are here to help you. This article will tell you the what are the things you should be doing weeks before your big day. .

  • Skin care – Let’s face it. A bride is all about being beautiful inside out and having a flawless skin is a must. Even though cosmetic inventions have taken quite a bunch of load off our shoulders, if you take care of your skin, you will have that extra glow making you look radiant. We would suggest start the treatment at least a month before your big day. Try out home remedy and go for a facial at least a week before the wedding. Go and see a dermatologist if you are suffering pigmentation and other skin conditions.
  • Stay fit – We advice this not only so that you can look great and fit into your wedding dress but also so that you have a healthy life. Involve yourself in some kind of sports activity and if you have access to the gym then spend sometime in the treadmill. It is not only good for toning up your body but also for a good cardiovascular conditioning.
  • Eat healthy – One of the key factors to be taken into consideration as what you eat will not only affect your body but also your skin and hair. So make sure you are eating appropriate and on time. Not to forget, drinking lots of water will help.
  • Manicure and pedicure – Manicure because he will be putting a ring on it (wink) and pedicure because… well just because you do not want an un-kept feet and you may be wearing an open toe shoes.

So while you are dealing with the jitters in the stomach and occasional mood swings, make sure that you take good care of yourself and yes take good sleep as well because we all want to see brides happy and beautiful.
