Hello Twenty Twelve - Keep thy promise!!!

I know I have started this year a bit late. But a lot has been happening, and a few announcements are in order. First of all, Bandagi- Bling Worship, my own line of accessories did very well in its first exhibition. Thank you all for your beautiful and kind words of encouragement. Secondly, I am poised for one of my life's biggest events. Will let you know more soon. Very soon!

2011 was a year of mixed blessings. It began badly enough with me losing my dad on 15th January, 2011. I cannot believe that it's almost a year now. On a positive note, I finally started finding my little spot of sunshine on the planet. As a blogger and as a designer, I learned a lot and have the blogosphere to thank for the inspiration I found here. Each one of you, a reader and a commenter on this blog, you are really really special to me. You give me a reason to look beyond my day job, and do something different, all for myself. You are beautiful, inspiring and special to me. Thank you for being in my life.

I hope that 2012 will be a year full of happiness and blessings for all of us. I promise to be more regular with posts and make the content of shotcouture engaging and worth your time.

I am posting some pictures of the Bandagi Collection here. Am now working on the next collection for the Brand - Mon Tresor! It will all be about, Love, Hope and life's irreplaceable treasures. Hope it will be a huge success too.

















We shot the above pictures at my Office's Christmas celebration. I am wearing one of my own hairbands. It was such a fun party, with Christmas Carols, plum cake and wine!

And now for the winner of the beautiful Art Meets Fashion bag!!! The lovely hand painted bag made by the young and talented designer Aarti Verma goes to the lovely Cecile!

Congrats Cecile!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Will see you on the other side of this beautiful Sunday.
