Designer Archana Kochhar presented her beautiful latest collection “Melange” at India Fashion Week Dubai 2015.

Ace designer Archana Kochhar presented a spectacular collection called “Melange” at India Fashion week Dubai 2015.
Melange is build on Archana story as a jetsetter travelling to different cities of India for her Bridal Trousseau. We all know that Archana started her journey with the city that never sleeps “Mumbai” which is the fashion hub of India and city to glitz and glamour of Bollywood . Here , she is enthused by the beauty of the night and the lights which is reflected in her collection by the use of the hues black .

She then travels to the pink city of India “ Jaipur ” where she is stirred by the coral pink color around the city and the palaces. The use of the coral pink color and the ghungroos in the collection is derived from the vision of the beautiful city of Rajasthan. Ghungroos is one the 5 arts that Archana is promoting from the “Make in India” campaign as chosen by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for her to revive.

The final destination for her trousseau is “Goa” where the inspiration is extracted from the scenic aqua blue beaches and sea, the soft breeze and the sunkiss ambiance which is uplifting and refreshing. The collection routes in fresh mint and aqua blue color palettes with fluid sheer fabrics which is perfect for the destination wedding .

Celebrity designer Archana Kochhar show was just spectacular and one of the best show at the India Fashion week Dubai. Show was opened with Actor Vikram Singh and Bollywood Actress Ravishing Celina Jaitley was the showstopper for the Designer who looked incredible in Archana Kochhar latest collection .

Interview with CEO Messe Frankfurt Middle East, Organiser of Beautyworld Middle East : Mr. Ahmed Pauwels

Ahmed Pauwels CEO Messe Frankfurt Middle EastThe Beauty World Middle East has always been one of the most talked about exhibition in the town. This year it was huge and memorable one for Beauty World Middle East as it was the 20th Anniversary Celebration.

The 20th anniversary edition was flagged off by H.E. Dr. Rashid Ahmed bin Fahad, UAE Minister of Environment and Water, and Chairman of the Board of Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA).
Beauty World Middle East 2015Beauty World Middle East 2015

The Beauty World Middle East 2015 got a glamorous start on 26th May on the very first day of the 3 day event with International Celebrity Product Launches grabbing the headlines. On the very first day , American Reality TV Star Khloe Kardashian brought a touch of international glamour to the show  by launching the Kardashian Beauty line of hair care products at the Anda International stand.

Miss Teen Australia and former Miss Teen Universe, Jasmine Stringer was another star present at the Beauty World for the launch of Skin O2 Australian Doctors Formula Cosmetics. Ms. Stringer is an official beauty brand ambassador for the Australian product line Skin O2.

I had a great time being a part of this special edition of Beauty World and it was a privilege interviewing  Mr. Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, organiser of Beautyworld Middle East.

Beauty World Middle East 2015

Since this is the 20th Edition of Beauty World , What kind of  changes and growth have you seen in all these years ?

To start with , The show used to run earlier as Gulf Beauty and when we took over the organization of the show we renamed it to Beauty World which is much more of an International brand and with that being part of the Messe Frankfurt group which is the 12th Largest Exhibition organizers in the world and has exhibited in more than 150 Countries . So it’s a big company and had already done a Beauty Show in Frankfurt , What we did is very important , First of all we structurize the show into different element such as Makeup department , Fragrance department etc. etc. which made it easier for the visitors to have a focus visit . “Over the past twenty years, the show has grown from modest beginnings into a ‘must-attend’ international trade and networking mega event for anyone involved in the beauty and wellness industries. Exhibiting at Beauty World means reaching more that 2 billion people who come from different regions.

What would you say about the demand for Halal Cosmetics in Middle East ?
Usually in the middle eastern community there is a lot of demand for certified halal cosmetics , and now the government is involved in the certification of halal cosmetics which test the product and give halal certification to brands which makes it easier for consumer to trust the brand .

Dubai as a Beauty Industry , Do you think the consumers here in dubai are very much brand conscious ?
Yes, We all know that the Beauty and personal care sales in the middle east have crossed 24 billion dollar mark , In fragrance alone people spend so much of money. It is the top in the middle east .

When you compare all the different sectors of the Beauty Industry in Middle East such as Skin Care , Makeup , Hair , Nails and Fragrances ? Which sector would you say has shown a tremendous growth and has given the best result ?

The biggest has been the fragrances as there is a lot of craze for perfumes here in the Middle East , Every one likes to smell nice , thus no one minds spending extra money on new fragrance .

Today is the second day of the Beauty World , How is the response so far ?
Everyone is excited and most of the exhibitors who exhibit with us wants to come back bigger next time . They have always got incredible response with us and great business opportunities in the Beauty World . We haven’t seen exhibitor not coming back after experiencing the exhibition once . This year also , we have had a great opening day and the huge number of visitors has already registered at the Beauty World .

NARS x Christopher Kane Collection and Review

NARS Christopher Kane's collection

I am completely obsessed with NARS Makeup . I love everything about NARS, starting from their chic & super stylish packaging  , high quality products, product ranges , the selection of colors and everything else. When i received the NARS limited edition by Christopher Kane , I was so fascinated by looking at the packaging as it looks so gorgeous with reflective pink lettering on it.11063587_705651942874757_8198969489064391762_n

Scottish Fashion designer Christopher Kane has collaborated with NARS since 2012 , therefore this latest limited edition collection will reflect three signature color theme , bold neon , classic and futuristic iridescence which are based on artifacts from Christopher Kane’s past collection .

The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection has a full range of products with the line of eyeshadow, Blushes, Illuminating Multiples, and Lip Glosses showcases Christopher Kane’s unexpected and edgy design aesthetic with NARS’ iconic  and bold beauty philosophy. The collection features 7 products in the middle east followed by 9 products in Kuwait and 10 products worldwide .

NARS X Christopher Kane BLUSH : NARS blushes are one of my favorite blushes in terms of quality and the colors . Nars has announced a new formula for blushes which is supposed to be more soft & silky in texture with sheer, buildable matte color . The texture is much thinner and powdery as compared to NARS previous blushes.
NARS SILENT NUDE Blush : Silent nude is a soft beige nude blush with a matte finish , It is very easy to blend and give a natural look , It’s a good shade for  light ,medium fairer skin tone and  it could be used for contouring and it won’t look too much of a contour. The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection Silent Nude Blush - jpeg

NARS STARSCAPE Blush : It is described as light magenta neon pink color. When i first saw it ,i found it much more Neon than i expected but then when i tried it on myself . It’s a soft pink color blush and looks really pretty it gives you a rosy cheeks :)

Price : 165 AED  or 30 $ each

NARS  NEO NEUTRAL LIP GLOSS :  Christopher kane’s collection of lips glosses have a high shine finish with a transparent quality . They appear to be sheer but the brighter colors have a bright base that adds color once you wear it for few minutes. Once the gloss if gone , they leave a stain on the lips .

There are 4 colors in the collection .

NARS Neoneutral lip glosses

GLOW PINK : Glow pink is the sheer fuchsia but comes as a rosy pink when applied
MEZMER: Mezmer is described as sheer neon pink and appears to be much rosier than glow pink.
NUCLEUS : It is a milky pale pinky beige color. Since it’s very sheer i would love to wear this over a lipstick as a gloss.
NEBULOUS : Is described as neon coral . It’s an orange coral with warm undertone.

Price :  130 AED or 26 $

SWATCHES :

NARS CHRISTOPHER KANE EYE SHADOW IN OUTER LIMIT : The shade is described as an “Iridescent rose gold”. Outer Limit Eye shadow appears to be one of my favorite in the collection . I love the  Gold and pink shimmery color as it’s so unique . I tried the Eyeshadow , it can have a bit of fall out , so it can be used over creamy eye shadow or if to be used alone , You can try it with a makeup fix spray using an eye shadow brush.
