At Vavci, you can choose from basic colors like beige, blue or black and team up with bandis in brocades and pure silks. Experiment with colors to add a slight sparkle as you celebrate. Or try on Vavci’s new range of drapes and assymetrical cuts of kurtas with unique bottoms that allow one's individuality to come to the fore.

The perfect wedding suit

February 27, 2017

Proposing is nerve-wracking enough but then you have to decide what to wear on your wedding day…how do you decide? At Vavci we encourage clients to get out of their comfort zone and dare to be different on their big day. Here are some basic questions to think about before you style your way down the aisle: Is it a day wedding or at night? Perhaps opt for a lighter or brighter shade of the traditional blue or grey if it’s the former? Where is the wedding going to be held?  In a place of worship, outdoors or in a hotel ballroom? The details make all the difference. What colo       READ MORE


The royal touches

February 27, 2017

Whilst Indian’s men’s fashion is definitely becoming more universal, our accessories tend to be inspired by our unique culture. For formal events, men still choose to wear the traditional three-piece suit with a pair of elegant cufflinks, a tie or a pocket square in a complementary color. For weddings in the North, the groom will wear a pagdi embellished with pearls or uncut diamonds, showcasing the skill and detailing that has made our artisans renowned all over the world. These embellishments can also be seen in Vavci’s wedding couture this season to add that extra sparkle to an outfit       READ MORE


Why settle for fitting in

“Clothes maketh the man.” When William Shakespeare wrote that famous line his intent was clearly to underscore the role that sartorial elegance plays in the impression a man makes in society and amongst his peers. At work, at play and for special occasions. At VAVCI we have made a work ethos out of that sentiment. Why settle for fitting in when you can stand out. The concept of setting the bar at another level in the realm of men’s clothing was taken as a challenge by the designer couple Kanika and Vishal Mehra because they truly believed that the most discerning of men had a limi       READ MORE
