Today’s post is focusing on just one of the many places I have visited in India: Varkala.
Varkala is a small town situated on the coast in the state of Kerala. The unique cliff top boardwalk and layed back beach vibe coupled with the stunning ocean views draw many tourists to the area… Some never leave! I have visited Varkala a few times in recent years and have to say it is one of my favourite places in India. Perfect for a chilled out break from the seeming chaos that is India!
For anyone planning a trip, I have put together my personal guide to Varkala!
Place to Drink: No holiday is complete without cocktails at sunset, right? Luckily there is a place that delivers both of these at the north end of the cliff. Sunset Restaurant has the best mojitos around and the endless view of the ocean provides the perfect setting.
So there it is Emily’s guide to Varkala!! Hopefully I have helped anyone planning a visit.
This year PFF will be host to 36 fashion forward events. The festival will run from 19th September until the 25th September and this year includes four stand alone designer showcases, three WA designer capsule shows and a new free event Fashionably Loud combining music and fashion with designers such as Ellery, Story by Tang, Kitty Grace and Belle Bijoux showcasing some of their hottest items to the tunes of San Cisco.
Another new initiative this year is the VIP Closing Night event: Giving Back is the New Black. PFF is teaming up with Ready to Work ( a charity that supports disadvantaged women) for a showcase of WA designers take on the little black dress.
For more info and to see the complete program head to the Perth Fashion Festival’s website.
It started with a short collection from each of the three winners from last year (Alissia Gomez, Celene Bridge, Jeromy Lim) which was amazing and even featured a live snake draped over one of the models shoulders. (Brave girl!)
Next up where the entrants in the design categories. The students really let their imagination run free which resulted in some incredibly inspiring designs. It’s hard to believe that these designers are still students and it is so exciting to think what the future holds for these talented, aspiring designers.
