Didn’t we recently tell you of our obsession with Gajras, and how we expect the flower power in hair to catch up with trends big time? Well, looks like we were spot on! Many top Indian designers (and even their western counterparts), in their recent shows and campaigns, can be seen experimenting with flower in hair looks, gajras, venis and colorful floral accessories…

After all, flowers have such refreshing, soothing and rejuvenating effect. The gajras go so well with the classic Indian look – and ensembles, be it a plain georgette saree, or a rich, hand-woven Kanjeevaram saree or even Navratri lehengas, bridal lehenga, wedding sarees and more.

One of our favorite designers – Gaurang Shah – who is as smitten by glorious Indian handlooms as we are – also seems to share our love for flower venis and gajras. How can we say? Well, here’s a proof, where we see almost all of his models, including his show stoppers (during big events like Lakme Indian Fashion Week 2016) sporting colorful and classic white gajras around their hair buns. Ah! We feel the blush of love –

This one’s from Gaurang’s most recent show that took place in Dubai. The runway girls are all immersed in Onam and festive spirit as they look ethereal in Silk Sarees and charming, vibrant gajras. Isn’t this the royal Indian look? This makes us so nostalgic and happy!

That’s statuesque Mugdha Ghodse…the lovely show-stopper for Gaurang Shah’s much talked about Lakme Fashion Week show Vrindavan. The majestic creation and a big gajra bun that helps hold the heavy odhani in place….Wow!

That’s actress Tapsi Pannu of the recently released movie Pink fame! She is dressed in a Gaurang Shah intricate woven Paithani Saree, giving us major gajra goals with her little, cute real flowers’ hair tie at the end of her plait. Fun!

Pretty actress Dia Mirza rocking the flowers-in-the-hair look in a very unique style, during one of Gaurang’s spectacular shows. We also love that the modest designer finally makes an appearance on our wall!

Even these models from Nairobi couldn’t say no to the charms of fresh roses in hair – as they dressed up for the designer’s show.
