Sareh Nouri Fall 2016 Collection

NEW YORK, Fall Bridal Fashion Week, fashion designer Sareh Nouri, introduced her Fall 2016 collection at The London Hotel in NYC.  For this collection Sareh pulled elements and inspiration from her Persian heritage. A history rich in art that is defined by detailed designs and patterns visualized in its mosaics, calligraphy, miniature paintings and intricate weaving.
 “The fabrics, laces and patterns that I selected and designed for this collection are reminiscent of an ancient, yet modern artistic culture” said Sareh Nouri. From the layering of sophisticated laces to the long dramatic trains, each dress in the collection lends itself to detail, intricacy and romance with the use of long lace sleeves, dramatically detailed backs and elegant embellishments. The collection stays true to its mission of light-weight and ultra-luxurious gowns, each with impeccable structure and fit with a built-in bustier, entirely hand-sewn in the U.S.A. Sareh Nouri’s exquisite Fall 2016 collection captures the essence of chic luxury inspired by traditional design, directly reflecting the designer herself and her Persian heritage, further setting her apart as a leader in the fashion industry.

5 Alternative Ideas for Your Bachelorette Party

If an evening in a nightclub with your best gal friends isn’t your idea of bachelorette heaven then it’s time to look at some alternative ways to celebrate your last night of freedom. Here are 5 totally awesome ideas that can add something completely different to your bachelorette event.

1. Take a Road Trip

Road trips are awesome because you get to spend time with your closest pals whilst discovering new places. Some of the best road trips include Route 66, South Carolina’s BBQ Trail, Pacific Coast Route, The Appalachian Trail and The Atlantic Coast Route. If you want to go abroad, try the Amalfi Coast in Italy or the famous Autobahn in Germany. Wherever you go, be sure to have the perfect bachelorette road trip playlist and make plenty of stops to enjoy the views.

2. Take Your Bachelorettes to a Festival

If a nightclub doesn’t tick all your boxes, try taking your best friends to a music festival. There’s nothing quite like a festival atmosphere, and with the magical mix of great weather, live music, fantastic food and your closest buddies, it will turn out to be truly memorable for everyone. Some of the world’s best festivals include Glastonbury in the UK, Electric Daisy Festival in Vegas, Tomorrowland in Belgium, Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and Outside Lands in San Francisco. Visit Timeout for more of the 50 Best Music Festivals in the World.

 3. European City Trip

A city break in Europe is fantastic because it generally has something for everyone. If you have a mixed group and people with varying interests in your bachelorette group, jet off to beautiful Europe and choose from some of the most amazing city destinations. Europe is brimming with culture and excitement; outstanding historical sites and architecture, breath-taking natural surroundings, the best nightlife, the finest food and Michelin star restaurants, fantastic shopping and plenty of activities.

4. Head to a Health Retreat

If you’re a health conscious bride (or maybe you just want to relax before your big day), a health retreat is the perfect way to treat yourself without breaking your pre-wedding diet plans. Health vacations or yoga retreats are growing in popularity and it’s easy to see why; a week of body beautiful activities, luxury treatments and wonderful, healthy food cooked for you and your bridal group.

5. Go Camping or Glamping

Camping or the more glamorous version of (glamping) is a great for girls who like to get stuck in when it comes to the great outdoors. An awesome alternative for anyone who doesn’t want to dress up and go clubbing for their bridal shower. An open fire, toasted marshmallows, and your closest friends is a great way of celebrating.
