Team Potpourri talks to the creator about 2017 trends!
Forecast top three accessory trends for summer months.
Jewellery that has more uncut and raw stones will steal the limelight this summer. Chokers will trend as they go very well with off-shoulder looks. Also, delicate, minimalistic jewellery will rule the roost this year.
What kind of traditional jewellery will make a comeback this year?
There would be a royal comeback of Kundan jewellery with stones this year. Stylists have been styling them really well with not only western outfits but Indian attires as well, giving them a major comeback this season.
What is your favourite kind of Indian jewellery?
Personally, my favourite would be jhumkas, because they have always been in vogue, and have never been out of fashion.
What is your process of creating or designing contemporary jewellery?
Our pieces are all sketched and handmade. Each piece is crafted carefully keeping in mind all the fine details, and giving them the best possible finishing.
Which celebrity would you ideally like to accessorize?
I love Shaleena Nathani’s styling, and hand-in-hand goes my all-time favourite Deepika Padukone. She gives a very sexy and classy styling to Deepika. That is why I love them.
