The Perfect Midi Skirt For Plus Size Women Ft AMYDUS

BeFunky Collage

Midi Skirts, Fit and Flare silhouettes, Black and Marsala colors, golden detailings and oh, of course, a bold lip; sounds dreamy eh? It does sound pretty dreamy to me at least. All of these combined together is what conventional plus size fashion dreams are made of. As a little over weight girl, my idea of an ideal outfit was a fit and flare midi skirt made of spandex which fell across my curves with the perfect flair and a short tucked in top which will conceal all my problem area and make me feel like the fabulous diva I am. Did this dream of mine got fulfilled? Read on to know more! Read more

Plus Size Culottes – The Back To School Casual Look With Amydus

IMG_6121

We have always been told, that culottes are not designed for bigger girls or culottes for plus size girls are nothing but a joke. The fact that culottes only look the best on slim girls with super long and slender legs has been ingrained in my mind since so long that it took me a long time before I could finally make up my mind to try this outfit.

How To Style A Semi Formal Wrap Around Dress Ft Samshek

IMG_016

The summer vacations are almost about to end, but you still have time to make that quick weekend getaway trip. In the past, I have shown you how to go soft with your very own LBD (that’s Little Blue Dress) and an equally sultry nude lip, but this red-hot look which I am going to show you guys today isn’t just about the vampy makeup and all the extra va-va-voom… or it least it doesn’t have to be! For a soft and flowy alternative, we say, it’s gotta be the wrap dress. The now iconic sashed silhouette is still fun and flirty, but has an inherently relaxed vibe, making it easy to wear and, best of all, flattering to nearly any figure. Read more

Welcoming Fashion Capsule — In A Candid Conversation With Mallika Jain


Please tell us something about yourself and your brand Fapsule?

Many moons ago, there was a vision, that came to a princess in a dream. The dream was grand; there were beautiful groups of enthusiastic people, elegant and stylish clothes and pleasing fashionable personalities and plenty of exchanges. Next day, as she sat with her friend in a café, talking about this and that, here and there, whose and who, she remembered the dream which slowly turned into a passion, a drive, a vision to create something big. And that is how, Fashion Capsule was born to a princess named Mallika.

Mallika Jain, Proprietor  of Fashion Capsule – a Fashion and Lifestyle shopping exhibition brand,is a New Delhi-based one-day gala shopping experience which aims to bring together multiple fashion, lifestyle, creative and boutique brands under one roof for our very elite shoppers. Fashion Capsule’s regular guest list includes the who’s who of the Delhi social circuit, HNIs and elite shoppers from various parts of the country. The exhibition is held in the interval of every 3-4 months, which brings together dozens of boutique fashion brands and designers from all over India and across the globe.

This is the story of Malllika and her brand Fashion Capsule, a brand that celebrates Fashion, that brings together a kaleidoscopic variety of fashion offerings for shoppers by both established and emerging brands.

Being a mother to two grown up boys and being a founder of one of most luxury exhibition- how you manage your personal And professional life?

 

Proudly to say being a mother of two amazing boys Rishabh and Chaitanya aged 19 and 17 is my biggest gift God could have given to me.  They are my Pride and my Pillar of strength.

Focus on important rather than urgent tasks – urgent tasks are reactive-based, important tasks are proactive-based.

Basically, at the end of the day you need to be able to be realistic about what needs to be done first.

2017 denotes expansion for Fashion Capsuleas we just organised an Exhibition in London, UK.. Lots planed for the future ahead in terms of new projects, expansions, diversification ,etc , Let there be scope for suspense for both you readers and my followers..Cheers!

 

With retail booming in india, do you feel people prefer shopping from exhibitions?

 

Inspire of retail booming in india,people still and will always shop from exhibitions as exhibitions are a one stop shop showcasing the best of established and emerging designers from all fields of fashion under one roof. Exhibitions are seasonal and theme based so it’s the best place to shop for that particular Indian dress you want to wear for a Diwali party or if you are looking for say a piece of jewelery from a mumbai stall holder who otherwise has no presence in delhi. You get designers from all across india who showcase their collections at exhibitions. This you cannot find in a mall or a high street.

How is the day before and day of the exhibition to you? Do you still feel pressure?

The day before the exhibition is always stressful but fun.

It’s the setup day so we all get busy with that and with social media promotions etc .

The day after the exhibition is like a breathe of fresh air and all smiles of satisfaction, after a successful exhibition.

Please share additional information if any which you would like readers to know about you?

Well known in the social circles in India and across. I am an Fashion influencer for many and looked upon by many young and aspiring Fashion Entrepreneurs.

My determination has paid good dividends. Fashion capsule shines like a bright star. A lot of it is because of what I believes in, I feel proud and equally humbled to share that FASHION CAPSULE won an award for the ‘Fashion Entrepreneur 2016’ felicitated by esteemed Shabana Azmi at an award function hosted by the Cancer Awareness Foundation and also second time in a row for, ‘The Best Fashion and Lifestyle Exhibition’ award at the Ravishing Wedding Awards 2015 which was felicitated by Sushmita Sen and for the ‘Most promising Fashion and Lifestyle Exhibition’ award at the Ravishing Wedding Awards 2014 which was felicitated by Huma Qureshi, respectively. An another extremely proud moment was when URS, Asia One Magazine, honoured Fashion Capsule and Mallika Jain as Worlds Greatest Brands & Leaders 2016-17 , Chosen and reviewed by PricewaterhouseCoopers PL. All these awards stands testimony to my hard-work and commitment to Fashion Capsule’s exhibitors and shoppers alike. A 40 page COFFEE TABLE BOOK by THNKMKT MAGAZINE, a leading publishing house, wrote a book on me, my Life, achievements, growth and success.

My Exhibitions have also been visited and appreciated by Bollywood Veteran Star Sridevi and Evelyn Sharma and important Politicians & Industrialists.

Any advice to women entrepreneurs?

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, Live the life you have  imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

Love who you are, embrace who you are. Love yourself. When you love yourself, people can kind of pick up on that: they can see confidence, they can see self-esteem, and naturally, people gravitate towards you.
It’s really important to talk to yourself and look at yourself in the mirror and love who you are. And its important to remember that we all have magic inside us.

I inspire others by living my life as an example. This doesn’t mean I try to be perfect, but what it does mean is that I want others to see the possibilities of being a successful young woman. I offer fashion tips and suggestions to women when asked without any hesitation as we together can grow so why not help other women too in their growth or help them stay stylish and happy. Also I would like to add, I would give to women walking the path of empowerment would be to believe that you can achieve all your dreams and goals.

Success starts in your mind. If you can’t see yourself achieving a lot, then it can never happen. You are your biggest cheerleader, so start with saying something positive about you and your day. Write an affirmation about your future and get training or material on your desired field or business. This will help you stay motivated to succeed! So go ahead ladies, Rise n Shine !!

Breaking The Fat Body Stereotypes With Afamado

4Z7A2267

Hello people!

As and when I grew up in the slight confines of Indian Society, I was taught to loathe my big body. Yes, I was a big girl since childhood but did that give anyone the right to teach me to hate myself? A few months back, on a facebook post, I was told something about my body positivity that people like to throw out pretty often. I’m told that body positivity is ok, however, “glorifying obesity” is dangerous. I, of course, responded with something short and snarky, because people on the internet that like to harass me do not get to take up the thoughtful spaces in my brain. But I wanted to elaborate on my feelings about what this person said here, in my safe little blog space.

My Favourite Black Jersey Dress-Gown Ft. LURAP Fashion

IMG20170428173049

Hello curvies!

What is up? It is so hot here In Delhi that I can hardly keep up with the soaring temperatures. Oh, and also people’s incessant remarks on how I should ditch my blacks and get to my cooler pastel tones because apparently, it is Summer of 2017 baby! But I am a true lover, I do not make relationships to break them off and my love relationship with black is to stay and stay for good. Summers or not, a classic black jersey dress has been my dream dress since the day I started exploring fashion but finding that perfect black cotton-jersey gown dress which just didnt look dressy but was also super comfortable wasn’t an easy task. But it has finally happened with my exploration of LURAP.
