When Karl Lagerfeld showed his Indian-inspired Pre-Fall 2012 collection at Paris last December, I was overjoyed at the sight of bold jewelled and studded head ornaments that decorated the models’ heads.

Then, when I saw a similar style of Indian-inspired head jewellery on the models at the ASHISH Fall/Winter 2012 show, I knew that it had become a sort of East-Meets-West runway trend, and had to write about it!

Buy this month’s issue of Velvet Magazine to read my piece on the the transformation of the Indian bridal “tikka” into a high-end piece of statement jewellery!

If you follow me on Tumblr, you would have already known that I am slightly obsessed with the Western take on the tikka. For my own clothing line, I even created my own version to complement an embellished collar. See it on model Carlijn-Valerie Lap below:
