I was at Numaish Dubai earlier this year - it is an exhibition that happens twice a year in Dubai featuring designers from all over India. A friend of mine who was working there at the time asked me if I had been to the Shahin Mannan stall yet and I said no. I am SO GLAD she guided me there because everything I saw I fell in LOVE with
So Shahin Mannan is an India based designer who has dressed celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Parineeti Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Kriti Sannon to name a few. She is most known for her casual shirts, capes, shirt dresses (cutest denim ones) and more! What is really unique about her work is she turns the simplest outfit to the coolest just by adding really cute symbols - like keys, a bicycle, Eiffel Tower and so much more! Honestly check her out https://www.instagram.com/shahinmannan/
obviously these people are not my friends and so the images are not mine lol
Isn't her stuff cute? I went through all her stuff and decided to make myself a custom made outfit. I chose light denim with pockets (duh), slightly longer length than her usual designs with bicycles, keys and the Eiffel Tower. She literally sent me the outfit in 3-4 weeks as promised and it cost me AED 800. Below are images
I love dresses with pockets! I knew I had to get it that way! What do you think?
I styled the outfit with my Adidas x Topshop kicks, my Black Dior So Real Sunglasses, my black Chanel and a Swarovski band style bracelet my sister picked up! Its my fav!! More images below xx
Check out the details of the work on the keys and the bike!
Details of the bag and the bracelet!
