Happy Holidays and a Fabulous 2013 to All!

It's a snowy and icy day here as we approach the holidays at a rapid pace. We would like to take the opportunity to thank our customers, friends, family and supporters of Shubhra Designs and www.Shubrah.com. Without you, we would not be able to survive these tough years! We did a lot of events during the latter half of 2012 and showcased our designs at new events and venues. Some photos are included of the latest events we did.

Have a wonderful, safe and healthy holiday season! Happy 2013!

Students at MIT designed amazing outfits with trash. I had the privilege to be a judge for this show called "Trashion". The creativity and use of waste materials was eye opening!
December also brought many birthdays to celebrate! The food and desserts at Elephant Walk were great, the company, fun!
Next we were at the LEF Multicultural Bazaar, in historic Cary Hall in Lexington! From dancers to designers, it was a fabulous and creative way to spread the word about Shubhra designs. All for a good cause, supporting LEF while we do it, too.

Turkey day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

We had an amazing night at the MIT KATwalk event which raises money for CASA- a non profit that helps children in need. The students did the modeling and the choreography. It was a pleasure to watch. A shout out to Flora and Jen for doing such a great job with coordination! Our designs looked great!
Pictures below.

Our next event is back at MIT with the Trashion show- on Dec 1st. Hope to see you all there. This is also a fundraiser and the idea is to show fashions that are sustainable and environmentally sound.

October 2012- In festival mode!

October is ending on a stormy note in New England. Remember the freak snow storm last year? Well, it's a hurricane this time. However, fashion and food have an infinite draw making aficionados brave city traffic on week nights or block off their precious saturday evenings to mingle and feast. We had two every successful events in October. 

The show at the Blue Glass Cafe in Boston and the Fashion Revue-300 years of Lexington costume history in Lexington. Included are some pictures of the events. October also saw the descent of the Hindu mother goddess Durga (ten handed, riding a Bengal tiger) to earth to slay the demons that plague us mortals. She has been victorious and has returned to her mountainous home in the Himalayas with her Lord Shiva. Hindus in India celebrate this festival every year with great joy, food, music, drama and new clothing.
Back stage and waiting! Don't the boys look great in Shiv-er silk shirts?
We are all about braids, buns and vintage hairstyles circa 1800s!

On November 3rd we will be at the AIF gala at the MFA. Sorboni Banerjee will be the Mistress of Ceremonies-our favorite on Fox 25 news. We are looking forward to this event to meet old friends and to make new connections. November 17th is the Musket Ball in Lexington and we will be donating some fashions towards an auction that will raise money for the town.

Our next event is in November, at MIT on the 9th. It is part of KATwalk, the fashion show raises money for a children's non-profit called CASA. We will be showing our fashions worn by the students at MIT and donating towards this worthy cause via an auction. Hope to see you on Nov 9th in Cambridge. December 1st another fashion show at MIT called "Trashion". Stay tuned for more details on that. With Diwali and Thanksgiving in November, we will all be cooking, partying, feasting and in need to new fashions, so look no further than our website. Here's to festival mode!

Autumn in New England

Boston Fashion Week has started and fall is everywhere. From the colors of the fruits, leaves and flowers we draw inspiration for this season. Luscious oranges, lipstick reds, fir greens and floral purples. Clear blue skies and cold ponds. Crisp red and green apples, large sweet pumpkins and the smell of cinnamon in the air. 

Cups of tea during the cool mornings!
Walking the dogs! 

Hope you are ready with pumpkin creativity this time of year! 

The armchair traveller! When your world revolves this way! 

Last blooms of September

Views of the pond - last chance to see foliage before the trees are bare in October

Fall views by a pond 

Fall in New England means a warm scarf, a cup of tea and a good book! 

Paisley designs are back with a bang this fall, but they have always been part of our design philosophy! They are the essential element in Indian fabrics! 

Paisleys combine with fall fabrics to bring back formality and a more grown up aesthetic to holiday fashions

Fall leaves they are a changing
Beautiful autumnal weather as the leaves change color!
And to end this blog post- our obsession with orange (not only for this season) knows no bounds as we walk by the neighborhood bike/ coffee shop!
