I love this time of  year, Diwali parties, dancing in sangeets, baraats and wedding receptions, I love it all! And, like it is for most people these days, it’s almost the only time I get to wear Indian clothes, and needless to say, I wanna bring my A game when I do.

This year is no different, and so, in our Art Of Dressing Diwali Special, we’re featuring the super talented Delhi based designer and couturier Siddartha Tytler.

Here are some amazing looks from his latest collection (in stores now), which are perfect for any festive occasion:

1. Black & White Applique Sherwani With Black Silk Patiala

My absolute favorite among all the looks, it looks regal, and is perfect for a wedding reception, for best man or the groom!

2. Black Neoprene Mesh Waistcoat with Customised Patchwork Over a Black Silk Kurta & Churidar

The versatility of this look makes this a hot favorite as well. The zippered mesh waistcoat is super cool by itself, and can be worn as a separate with another kurta pyjama / churidar, (like I’ve shown in the next look). It will look awesome at your next Diwali party, or even a mehendi or sangeet!

3. Customised Black Digital Printed Floral Kurta and Black Silk Churidar teamed with A Black Neoprene Mesh Waistcoat With Customised Patchwork

The same mesh waistcoat worn over this beautiful digital printed floral silk printed kurta changes the look completely, and looks just as amazing, and can be worn to pretty much all the same occasions. I love the laid back and yet dressy feel.

4. Thread Embroidered Peppermint Sherwani with Silk Kurta & Patiala

Green is in this season, and this peppermint coloured sherwani with its thread embroidery is elegant and formal, and as current as it gets. I like the amazing shape this takes and the color of the inner works perfectly to create a synergy.

5. Customised Peppermint Digital Printed Floral Sherwani

I’m totally getting into the digital print revolution in Indian wear! This peppermint colored floral design is gentle and oozes elegance. The solid peppermint shade on the trousers brings out the richness of this look.

Over and above his design aesthetics, (which stays away from loud or too heavily embellished clothes), one of the things I love about Siddartha Tytler’s garments is the fit and finish, both of which are impeccable. There’s a sense of reassurance when you can pick 5 outfits from his latest collection off the shelf, and they all fit like a glove.
