I am loving the premier collection of Karishma Shanani, a recent graduate of London College of Fashion and recipient of The Fashion Technology Award. Her eclectic collection of bright Indian-inspired floaty natural fabrics is perfect for anyone who is not shy of expressing themselves, and most importantly someone who is an explorer. She has found inspiration from her native homeland, India: ” the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and stark scarcity, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genie and giants, tigers and elephants, the city, the jungle, of a thousand religions and two million gods, the epitome of legends and traditions.”
Sometimes a standard beach towel just isn’t large enough space separating you and the sand–which makes Hammam towels the perfect summer beach blanket. Also called peştemals, Hammam towels are traditionally used at Turkish baths are still woven in the traditional manner on a métiers a tisser, or hand loom. Luxuriously large and highly absorbent, each towel is woven from 100% organic Turkish cotton and finished with fringe. Spread out and get your tan on.
I’m a sucker for tepee/tent living so when I first discovered Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, I immediately wanted to have a destination wedding there. Unfortunately, it was too small of a venue and two years later I am still pining over this place. Situated at the mouth of the Bedwell River, the resort will fly you in by seaplane from the Vancouver airport and upon arrival, an enclave of 20 large white canvas guest tents, massage and treatment tents, lounge tents and an untamed wilderness await you.
