Fascinated or Fixated Fridays

Thank God it's Friday! 
I am extra happy since I get a long weekend due to the festival Eid.
So for this week's Fascinated or Fixated Fridays post I thought I will add to my review of 
'A' by Anubha.

For the uninitiated, 'A' by Anubha is a California based high-end designer label of khadi oriented clothing by Anubha Srivastav.

Launched in October last year, 'A' started with the Autumn Winter collection of Khadi jackets and has gone a long way since then. Currently, 'A' supplies jackets to Gotham City Film Studios, a Los Angeles based company, and is available online through her website & Facebook page.

Apart from high-end designer women's wear jackets, 'A' also does smart men's wear jackets for men who dress to impress!

'A' recently launched their Spring Summer range of classy vests & jackets in a myriad of colors. And for a special Indian element, these jackets have a subtle hint of tone on tone chikan embroidery.

 Appropriate for any occasion, these vests can be styled in various looks. I love the asymmetrical design of the sky blue vest.

A classic khadi  vest can add volumes of style to any outfit. If you too want to add an edge to your wardrobe, do check her website for more details on how to reach her.

Aditi Bhatt
"I graduated from NIFT(Gandhinagar) specialising in fashion and lifestyle accessories in 2011. After my course I started working on my label as I always had ideas I wanted to flesh. I wanted to make products that were ‘happy’ vivacious and full of life.And since colours have always been my weakness my products reflect that. I love working with enamel as it’s a versatile and fun medium to play with. I wanted to make jewellery that was fun and colourful and something that also had a strong luxurious feel to it." - Aditi Bhatt, as told to Fascinated or Fixated!
