For those of you who don't know, apart from my full-time job as brand manager, I'm also a freelance designer. I love designing my own clothes, mostly party wear. I have had 3 showcases- 2 in Bahrain and one in India where I managed to sell most of my creations. I take orders from clients and custom- make garments to suit my customers.
Moving on to my outfit here, this elaborate full- circle skirt is meters and meters pure organza that I designed for my graduating show in college. I didn't want to sell this beauty,as the skirt was part of the showstopper outfit for my show. If you follow me on instagram, you know that I've over-used this velvet cropped top that I recently got stitched. I wear it with everything! Over dresses, mini skirts and even lehengas! Follow me on instagram @askthestylecouncil to see the ways I styled the top.
I will be making more crop tops and more elaborate ones to suit a few occasions that I have lined up. I also love how this look is so wearable to weddings and festive events. The full-ness of the skirt is extravagant enough without being heavily embroidered and an over-the-top necklaces acts as the bling factor! I personally love huge skirts and cropped top combos, what about you?
