I hope you liked my last post about DATE THE RAMP in which I gave all the details about the brand and showed you how beautiful their Khar Mumbai store is and what amazing collection they offer. In case you missed out on reading the previous post click the link below and get to know about the brand in detail.
As I said it before in my previous blog as well as in my Instagram captions Date The Ramp offers designer outfits and accessories on rent but you can get your hands on the designer collection only if you have their membership and as they hosted me to try their outfits they also provided me with a priority code for my audience so that you’ll can start renting and walk all the upcoming events like a lakme fashion week diva.
To avail their membership use my priority code: B_SAINI and start renting.
So as you’ll know I got lucky as I was invited by Date The Ramp to their Khar, Mumbai store in the last week of January to checkout their designer collection and get a photoshoot done. I remember when Date The Ramp had launched I had noted down the brand to have a collaboration with them in the near future and getting a mail from them saying they would love to have me on their bloggers list to showcase their collection to my audience was a dream come true.
So with all the excitement in my belly I reached their store in Khar. Their store is exactly opposite to Rajkumar Jwellers 400052. So when we reached there we were guided by the watchman to their store. Also here we stand for me and Rudra (my dear one and also my favourite photographer) https://instagram.com/rayo_jpg
Date The Ramp has 2 store on 2 different floors in the same building. As soon as I opened the door all I could see designer lehengas, gowns, sarees, anarkalis, jewelleries. The sparkling work was shining everywhere. The outfits were displayed in a very systamatic manner according to their category and colours. Do checkout both the floors as both have different collections.
So after reaching there I got my hair and makeup done in their beauty bar aree and woooh what an amazing space. I felt like I was back stage of a Lakme Fashion Week getting ready in their beauty bar. As soon as I was ready with my hair and makeup I walked out to choose 3 outfits from their entire collection I was assisted by their in-store stylist Himangi https://instagram.com/hiza._ She helped me pick the best outfits from their amazing collection. Also it wasn’t an easy job at all as each piece was better from other but finally we managed to pick 3 with a heavy heart of letting go others.
After picking up the 3 outfits we walked to the changing room with them and quickly charged in the first looks. Himagi not just helped me with my outfit selection but also with the jewellery. She made sure I look my best when I walk out of the dressing room. Honestly this girl is great at her work and has a long long way to go. Nilofer khan did my dupatta draping for all the 3 outfit and all 3 have a different look. If you ever visit Date The Ramp Khar store do ask for these two gorgeous ladies Himangi and Nilofer as they are best at their job.
I was so excited to walk the ramp in these lehngas and get the shoot started. Also if you don’t Know the store has fashion ramps attached in between 2 dressing rooms and the ramp has a mirror exactly infront of it so that you can even look how your pose is and make sure your hair and outfit looks perfect in each picture. Also the entire space has so much of lighting just like a professional studio. Perfect place to get your perfect outfit, jewellery and get pictured. Now let’s not keep you waiting and show you the amazing lehengas I tried and how they turned out on me.
Look No. 1:
So this white dreamy lehenga is was from Varun Chakkilam. https://instagram.com/varunchakkilam
When I looked myself in the mirror after getting into this lengha I couldn’t take my eyes off. I actually didn’t blink for seconds and kept admiring myself. I not just looked like a disney princess but felt like one at that moment and when I stepped out of the trial room I had all the eyes on me and everyone was like oh my god! you look so beautiful.
This lehenga is perfect for your engagement or samgeet night. It has pearls drops attached to its blouse and you can see lot of mirror work. The lehenga has a very great ghera as you can see. It has purple and light pink flowers with dark green leaves all over. The flowers and leaves are embroidery work. It also has mirror work with purple embroidery work around the mirrors. Because the lehenga is so heavy the duppata is kept pretty simple and light with silver zari border and some mirror work in between so that the lehenga gets all the attention.
As beautiful this lehenga looks it is so heavy to carry but it’s worth it because you don’t look anything less then a Disney Princess 👸🏻. Because this lehenga already looks so heavy and perfect we didn’t wanted to go for heavy jewellery to overdo the look so we chose western style diamond earrings and a diamond work bracelet.
Look No. 2:
For the second look I chose a comparatively lighter lehenga (only in terms of weight). No compromise was made in terms of looks. This pretty oufit is from Bhumika Grover’s collection https://instagram.com/bhumikagrover
This lehenga has less layers of cancan inside which makes it easy to carry. The colour of the lehenga is greyish blue and has glittery sequins work all over. It has a golden border at the end and gota patti design all over it.
This lehenga had the best blouse as compared to the rest two. I loved the design so much plus it fit me so well as if it was made for my body type. The colour of the blouse is golden and had a heavy work of sequins, beeds and zari all over. You can’t even see the fabric as its completely loaded with this beautiful work. Again it looks heavy but it is so light and comfortable to wear.
The dupatta has a combination of grey and peach which goes perfectly with the lehenga and the blouse. It has flowers made of stone and beads all over but at fair distance. It has a dark peach border with golden detailing work. Because this lehenga gives a royal look we chose to go for some heavy jewellery so we paired it with a maang tika, heavy look earrings and a necklace. The colour of the jewellery was golden which matched the outfit colour and had stone and pearls work which again matched the outfit work. You can wear this lehenga to your best friends wedding or you own engagement.
Look No. 3:
For the final look I chose the most heaviest lehenga. This lehenga is my personal favourite also because it’s from my one of the favourite designer Anushree Reddy https://instagram.com/anushreereddy
Oh My God seeing myself in one of Anushree Reddy’s lehenga was a dream come true. The blouse, lehnga and dupattas are all of the same colour lime yellow green. One can easily recognise Anushree Reddy’s lehenga through her work. Her work speaks everything. She is one of the best designers in the fashion industry.
This lehenga has an amazing ghera as its stuffed with the perfect amount of cancan. The lehenga has heavy zari and stone design work all over it. The lehenga has heavy border and frills. The blouse has heavy zari and stone work too all over and the design of the blouse is just amazing.
Because the lehenga and blouse js so heavy the dupatta is light in terms of works. It has borders on all sides and few small flowers in between. As the lehenga is enough to get everyone’s attention we paired it with a comparatively light earrings and a basic bracelet. This lehenga is just perfect for any of your wedding function.
My Overall Thoughts
Overall I had a great time checking out the amazing collection at Date The Ramp Khar, Mumbai store. If I could I would try out each and everyone piece😜 but I was allowed to shoot only in 3 outfits. So these are my 3 favourite ones.
