Diwali is round the corner and once again we remember the good old Diwali celebrations in India. While you can’t feel the same Diwali fervour in Singapore, we try and recreate some of the memories for our kids, so they don’t miss out on this important celebration.
Dressing up for Diwali is a huge part of Indian culture. Wearing new clothes is part of the tradition and many families spend time shopping for new clothes for the festive season. Bold colours like red, orange, bright pink and yellow are always a favorite. However, in recent times, clothing designers have taken to a diverse color palette ranging from pastels to darker hues like blues and black.
I recently heard of this brand Fizzy Goblet which makes lovely Indian shoes. The brand was conceptualized by Laksheeta Govil in 2014. A final year student from the Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi, Govil worked with Puma before launching her own venture.
Fizzy Goblet is a modern twist to the traditional juttis. Juttis are handcrafted footwear made of leather and beaded and embroidered with silk threads and sequins.
Their designs are amazing, and she uses different types of Indian handicraft (zardozi or gold embroidery, dabka or French embroidery) to bring life to her shoes. Besides the traditional juttis, the brand also retails some very colourful heels to match both Indian and Western wear. Her vegan sliders are also unique and would pair well with Jeans.
They also have a section dedicated to weddings and other festive celebrations. The brand has a lovely collection for kids, in cute colours and prints.
The brand has also tied up with Indian fashion designer Payal Singhal and Rahul Mishra to create individual fashion lines.
For folks who live in India, go try on a pair. They have stores scattered all over the country.
Wishing you a very Happy Diwali and festive season.
