Seven Runway-Worthy Looks You Can Pull Off Any Day

By | News

Here are seven outfits hand picked for you that could easily be seen gracing the runway (and some pieces actually have!). Look like a model every day of the week in our designs – made from the highest quality fabric with comfort in mind.

Chief Executive – The exquisite silk Pratt Shirt  is exactly the kind of powerhouse piece you need in your wardrobe. With hand-beaded crystals and a classic neckline, this top is sophisticated enough to wear to your most formal events. We recommend pairing the Pratt Shirt with high-waisted, wide-legged black trousers with a thick waistband to flatter the waist and hips. Throw on a pair of black pumps for a polished, professional look.

Tea Time – For your next afternoon outing, try pairing the Delia Tunic Top tucked into the Split Hem Pants. The soft color options for the Delia Tunic matched with white pants creates an ultra-feminine color scheme, complemented by aurora borealis-finished Swarovski crystals along the left shoulder. The Delia Tunic is available in pink, green, and blue – all in equally powdery, beautiful shades. This outfit would look perfect with nude, strappy heels.

The Queen Has Arrived – Whether you’re the Queen of Hearts or the Queen of Rock, the Embroidered Cropped Jacket is a must-have piece if you’re looking for bold style in your outfits. This jacket matches beautifully with the simple, understated Jocelyne Gown and small gold earrings for a formal event. It can even be dressed down with jeans, a black tank-top, and chunky leather ankle boots.

Charmed –  The Poetic Blouse and Ninaa Skirt are a match made in heaven. The luscious red color of the blouse and detailing in the skirt create a color coordinating ensemble without being overly harmonious. This outfit is perfect for a lunch date, baby shower, or any other lighthearted daytime event.

Girl’s Night Out –  For your next night out on the town with your best ladies, you have to try on the Detachable Jumper. The bright red color and sexy waist cutouts will have all eyes on you. The exposed skin and heart-shaped neckline will flatter your every curve without revealing too much. You can dress this piece up or down as much as you’d like with all kinds of jewelry. We recommend pairing with a neutral colored shoe.

At LAVANYA Coodly, we work hard to provide unique and finely crafted pieces to meet any of your fashion needs.  We focus on designing garments for sophisticated men and women that pursue diverse interests and passions.  From those who work and travel to others who commit their time to charities, supporting the fine arts, engaging in self empowerment activities, or just relaxing with friends and family, we have something for each lifestyle choice. We would like you to be well dressed no matter what you are doing.

Hand-Sewn Pieces and their Benefits

By | News

Typically, when anything is handmade, it takes time, effort, and attention to detail. These factors play a huge role in the quality of the finished product, ensuring that each component is perfect and each stitch is perfect At Lavanya Coodly, we are keenly aware of the importance of paying attention to even the smallest detail when it comes to clothing. This is why you will find that many of our hand-embroidered pieces also feature hand-stitching.

Putting the time into design and manufacturing pays off in the long run. On average, handmade pieces from high quality fabric tend to last far longer than machine-made, fast fashion. When a machine manufactures pieces in bulk with cheap fabric, weaknesses that the program or template of the machine simply cannot detect flaws. This is minimized greatly by the human eye and hand, where you can feel each thread, strength in a knot and control the speed of stitching and manipulate the fabric as needed. We believe that it is worth paying a slightly higher price for clothing that will last for years to come, rather than spending any money on something that will begin to deteriorate after a few washes. Make the most of your shopping experience by choosing pieces you know that will become a good investment- pieces that you can rely on to look good, feel good and wear well.

Typically, handmade pieces require high quality fabrics derived from natural resources. Rarely do you see them constructed from synthetic, less breathable fibers. Often, handmade pieces – like much of the selections offered in our store – are made from silk, cotton, linen, and wool. They will allow your skin to breathe and regulate your body temperature more effectively than synthetics and thus, provide comfort when you need it most. Cool cottons and linens for summer and warm wool and silks for winter are inviting season after season.

Another benefit of having pieces handmade is customization. At Lavanya Coodly, we offer Made to Measure option for many pieces in our selection, working closely with clients to bring their dream dress from sketch to reality. Brides may custom design their wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses and even bring in the groom to be fitted by us. Know that your piece is one-of-a-kind and personalized in every aspect by our experienced and talented staff !

Handmade pieces last longer, have unique differences, are never repetitive and tell a story that is not only yours but that others cannot help but notice. What would you like your story to be?
