Maharini Resort Wear

London life seems to be full of lunches and dinners interspersed with exhibitions (for which read 'sale') for a variety of things, ranging from homewares, jewelry, shawls and clothing.  Invariably organised by ladies who lunch for other ladies who lunch, it's all too easy to get a little jaded by the onslaught of invitations for these 'exhibitions', but for some reason I was really excited to be asked to attend a ladies tea party held to introduce the new label, Maharini.  And with good cause, it turned out.

The buzz in the swish apartment in London's Mayfair as I walked in to the venue was nothing compared to the excitement generated by the clothes hanging nonchalantly on the rails.  This first collection by Jag Gill, ex-banker, raised so many ooh's and aaah's that you would think George Clooney had just walked into the room!

Little dresses with wrap around skirts in the finest of silks, graphic and digital prints on long flowing maxis, sequined kaftans just perfect for throwing on over a bikini in St Tropez and mad harem pants perfect for cocktail hour - it was all here.

Just a little something I couldn't resist.... 

There were queues to get into the changing room, queues to get a chance to try on clothes already being tried on and queues to speak to Jag.  For a first foray into designing a capsule collection, I think it's safe to say it was well received!
