Amrika Preview Party

IMG_2541

Last week we hosted our Amrika preview party at our show room in Mayfair, showcasing Indo Western wear and all of our amazing designers to the blogging world! Both fashion and beauty bloggers were invited to an evening of Indo Western designer and luxury outfits, food, drinks, goodie bags, bindis, metallic tattoos, music and the ability to try on the outfits they liked most!

We had a variety of ladies who attended and we loved meeting all of them! We really hope you liked seeing something different that you could perhaps now incorporate into your everyday style. Even if you were just inspired by the designs and detail, we were happy to share our take on Indo Western wear with you!

We thought we would share some of the best moments from the event with you and also showcase some of our designers so you can get to know their designs a bit more!

The event

We gave out some goodie bags to thank the girls for coming to see us! We had some designer scarves and some beauty essentials packed in there with some sweets! We also had a stand with bindis and metallic tattoos to complete the looks once they had tried on the outfits! It was important to us to also show the culture and artistry of Indo Western wear.
