(Sponsored) Fusion Indo-Western Couture Wear from Batua by Barsha!

I love wearing traditional clothes and during Chinese New Year, you will spot me wearing my qipao almost the full 15 days. Thus when I chanced upon Silver Ang wear Batua by Barsha during the SG50 Fashion Show Runway held at Klapsons Hotel. It left me an impression that I would like to try it one day too.

I would be doing a charity high tea fashion show a week later. Days before the show, we were told to wear either in white or pink for the reception. In a haste to find a suitable dress, I thought ofBatua by Barsha. Barsha was so helpful and I went to her home on the day itself to choose the design. I was so spoiled for choices with her various designs and finally decided on a piece which was altered in a matter of 20mins! My headache resolved in just one morning. Incredible service and speed.

Batua, is the Hindi word for a bag. Barsha’s initial objective in setting up Batua by Barsha was to provide options of good quality bags and clutches at affordable prices. She has however went a long way to create a fusion of Indo-Western designs in her gowns filled with loads of colours and patterns . The ready to wear features brings about lesser hassle. I felt that the younger generation would be motivated to wear in bid to create a fashion trend in future events.
I chose this piece as it has both a white and pink element in it plus the attractive bright colours drew me to it right away!

To top it off, the earlier phobia of handling 5 metres of cloth around me was instantly resolved as Barsha made it so easy by sewing part of it on the waist and all I got to do was to just pin a small section to my wrist for that wave effect from the back.

Together with the Guest of Honour for the night, Ms Joanna Portilla.
