Behind the scenes...

If you have seen the preview of our new 'Resort' catalogue, you will know that during our recent supplier visit to India we extended our usual trip to Jaipur and headed South to Goa to photograph our new SS '13 collection.  Putting my new snazzy phone to good use, we documented our time out there with some rather amateur filming and a lot of Instagram love.

India Fashion Week, AW '13

We've seen New York, London, Paris and Milan but now it is India's turn.  Indian Fashion Week or WIFW as it is better known, brought us the usual visual feast of colour and texture as East meets West and the traditional meets forward thinking design.  A fabulous source of inspiration for us here at Andara as we get to work designing next season's product range.

Got the hump

Like many women, we have recently been lusting over Caroline Issa's new capsule collection for LK Bennett.  Her limited edition range of shoes and bags are both striking and delicate, and are apparently inspired by traditional Thai embroidery.  However, we couldn't help noticing the distinct similarity between her collection and a Rajasthani camel.  We have long been inspired by the traditional tassels that they adorn their camels with in Rajasthan and now we can adorn ourselves in a similar fashion. Awesome.
