Our trip to Udaipur in India was like stepping into a fairy tale.
I am missing the beautiful time we spent at the Palace and the wonderful people we met.
I was, especially, impressed by the lovely talented designer Manjari Mishra of Ayodhya.
Her brother Yatindra Mohan Pratap Mishra, poet, editor and cinema scholar was honored by the Maharana- Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur at the Maharana Mewar Foundation Annual Scheme of Awards.
We met at the gala dinner and we instantly clicked.
Marjari Mishra’s brand Shilpmanjari is portraying her own rich royal heritage through her designs. Using the craftsmanship of Zardozi, gota patti, kamdani and karchobi she is combining seamlessly.historic regalia and modern day sophistication. Her elegant pieces evoke cultural legacy. Think traditional Indian motifs like ambi (paisley) peacock, sun and moon as well as old regal motifs like thrones and crowns.

(I was wearing the embroidered silk coat you have seen here)
The heavily adorned handmade raw silk batuas/potli are my favorite. The embroidered traditional Indian evening bags are unique and stylish.
Wearing these Indian statement pieces will elevate any outfit!
