Happy Holi - the Hindu Festival of Spring!

Holi powdered colours
Amrapali's London store on Beauchamp Place

Last night the Dinny Hall girls headed to Amrapali’s beautiful Beauchamp Place store to celebrate Holi, the Spring festival when people throw coloured poders over each other as well as Amrapali's new Autumn/Winter 13/14 collections. We were greeted by the gorgeous Anjali who gave us all bindis of brightly coloured powder to celebrate spring before showing us around the collections and letting us try on anything we wanted! And didn’t we have a good time…

Our lovely Finola getting into the Spring mood with her bindi of orange and pink powders

Babs wearing Amrapali's incredible Gazelle Temple Necklace, which she teamed with her beloved Dinnh Hall Talitha Statement earrings

In the meantime...Just look at these!

...Amelie and Shakira wearing the Panther and Gazelle rings from the Manish Arora collection, which are available exclusivelly from Dinny Hall in Liberty!

We could have stayed there all night trying on piece after stunning piece, but alas we are back in store today. I guess we’ll just have to cheer ourselves up by looking forward to the new Dinny Hall-Amrapali collaborative designswhich will be in stores in the Summer. Here's a sneak preview from Dinny's sketchbook:

Dinny Hall-Amrapali Jaisalmer collection

One item we were all sad to leave behind was the Jewelled Collar with the gorgeous enamel, green oxyx and incredible holographic crystals. We would love to see this in one of our stores! Watch this space…
