The Good Indian Bride👰🏽

Banglez was invited Thursday, November 24, 2016 to the ‘The Good Indian Bride’ event Curated by Artist/Director Ms. Mutta and the team of web series ‘Anarkali’.

“Artist and Director Ms. Mutta examines through a Web Series focused on relationship trials and tribulations that looks at Indian Diaspora women and their romantic interactions – the good, bad and the ugly.

Ms. Mutta Productions Inc. is a Toronto-based creative house, owned and operated by filmmaker, producer, and writer, Ms. Rakhi Mutta. Ms. Mutta has written, directed, and produced everything from viral videos, to short films, to her own award-winning web series. Ms. Mutta’s past work has been featured on NBC, CBC, CBC Arts, BBC, OMNI TV, as well as Elle Canada and Canadian Living.”


“Toronto, ON – The highly anticipated premiere showcase of ‘The Good Indian Bride’ performance art exhibit, by award-winning Artist/Director, Ms Mutta, is unveiling for one-night-only in Toronto on Thursday November 24, 2016, taking place inside the exclusive DAIS. The Good Indian Bride is a living manifestation of a distorted legacy, exploring the patriarchal subtexts of North Indian wedding rituals, both in the diaspora and the subcontinent.

What began as a photography exhibit featured at Nuit Blanche 2015 (Toronto) and the 2015 Feminist Art Conference (Toronto), is now coming to life through performance art for audiences to physically experience what it really means to be a “good Indian bride”. This artistic labour of love is a masterful creation pushing boundaries and  demanding that we engage  in dialogue around South Asian marriage rituals, with all its beauty, grandeur, and darkness.

“The ultimate goal growing up was to ensure that you were married. No degrees, no accolades, no awards, your dreams, desires and ambitions meant absolutely nothing if you were not married”. – Ms. Mutta”


We will be providing our beautiful jewelry for the event, pictures to follow!

Now let’s take a look at the Anarkali series. Dating is tough. Relationships are tough. Being a girl is tough. Coming from a south Asian family is tough. Keeping your parents happy is tough. Combine those factors together and you enter the turmoil that is the reality of dating for south Asian women in today’s time.

Times are tough ladies and web series ‘Anarkali‘ can relate!

*Stay tuned for an exclusive on event!*

#BadBeti 💀

A once all hallows eve now known as Halloween is a popular holiday amongst North Americas and multiple countries around the world. Originating from the 2000-year-old ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts, it now includes traditional activities like trick-or-treating, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses” and carving jack-o-lanterns.

The celebration of Diwali falls around the date of Halloween, often conflicting with celebrations. Of the Indians that do not participate, their belief is that Western holidays like Halloween have begun to negatively affect their native festivals.

This may have changed when Pakistani-Canadian artist Maria Qamar uploaded a picture of makeup artist Jasmine Lakhesar with skull makeup and Indian jewelry on Instagram. Promoting her #BadBeti exhibition with Babbu the Painter, Indians all over the world are taking notice. Serious Halloween inspo right here!💀


Maria Qamar, owner of @hatecopy is widely known for her audacious and brazen desi artwork that’s totally relatable! From wedding issues to the chemistry behind chai making and sneaky aunty humor, she unites all worldwide desis on similar issues.

Since the post, desi Instagrammers all over the world have been inspired to post their own badass skull makeup looks in Indian wear!

And without a doubt killinnn it!🙌

If Tim burtons corpse bride had babies with Shah Rukh Khan, THESE are definitely the outcomes!😁

The trend has since been picked up by Buzzfeed! #winning 

Indo-Canadian Instagrammer @babbuthepainter shared her inspiration behind the #BadBeti movement, “I’m an Indian – Canadian who builds a bridge between my two cultures to create meaningful art. This isn’t a skull that I put an “Indian Twist” on, it’s more than that. It talks about the struggle of an immigrant who feels the need to assimilate to a new world and…” More on

As many of us struggle to close the gap between what we are, who we are and what we want to be, campaigns like #BadBeti help liberate us with an outlet to express the innermost workings of us, desi girls.

Are you a #BadBeti?!😏

Until next time,

“Every piece of art that exists in the world started as an idea. Every idea was turned into something real by an artist. Every time that reality met or exceeded the idea it’s because that artist put blood, sweat, and tears into not only the art but the years of learning and practice that preceded the art. Art isn’t free. Stop acting like it is.” – Brian Geddes

Banglez Jewelry Appointment 101👰🏽

Banglez is here to make your life as easy and stylish as possible! In doing so, we’d like to walk you through a typical appointment is like at Banglez🙂

The first step would be to get in touch with us! We work best with text but you are welcome to call or email us as well.

DM on Facebook and Instagram is not recommended as messages often get lost and the turnaround time for a response is much longer.

Once we’ve confirmed an appointment with you, we will send you a calendar invite providing you with details and suggestions that can aid in a successful appointment.

We strongly recommend that you bring your blouse/top, as it is A LOT simpler to choose jewelry.

Keep in mind that bringing your dupatta/chunri/chunni/pacheri is not always enough since the neckline is often more important than the work/embroidery.

We’ve had many clients/brides who decided not to bring their whole outfit simply because it was too heavy to carry around etc.…and ultimately regretted that decision. Many then decide to come back again with their blouse or gown.

Since your To-Do-List can get quite lengthy when it comes to weddings/engagement and big events, we urge our clients to take our advice and bring their outfits along for the ride😉

**If you absolutely cannot bring your outfit, take a picture and short video of yourself wearing it. Not just of your outfit.**

During our one on one meeting, you can change into your outfit and wear it while we suggest a variety of jewelry pieces that we feel will compliment both your outfit and your personality!

We allow pictures to be taken! In fact, we encourage you to take pictures while wearing the pieces, so that you can refer back to them and compare the contenders.

Necklace, earrings, and tikka are usually done first followed by bangles. This is how we tie in the look of the jewelry to your bangles. Some of the items that we have available are…

-Bangles (chudiyan, chura, kara/kada, kangan, bracelet, etc.)

-Earrings (jhumka, chandelier, tops, sahaara chain, etc..)

-Necklaces (bridal, party, long haar, mala, choker, pendant, etc.)

-Tikkas/Maang teeka


-Armlet (vankis/Baaju band)

-Nose Rings (Nath)



-Headpiece (matha pattis)

-Hair pieces/hair ornaments

-Saree belt (kamar bandh/kamar band/Tagdi)

-Hand piece (hath panja)

-Anklets (jhangara/payals)



Plus many more options with customization!


We encourage bringing pictures of styles and looks you’re interested in.

You may also check out and follow our social media platforms for ideas and inspiration!

Collaboration with Grafiti Clothing🎨

Hi guys!

Welcome back to yet another edition of the Banglez blog! 

Last month Banglez teamed up with Grāfiti Creative Design House to create a vintage inspired Spanish shoot to showcase their summer in Spain SS16 Collection. Other vendors involved were: Brown Rice Photography, Canvas Make Up & Hair, models Vanessa Stalony and Pardeep Bassi.

Grāfiti Creative Design Houses design philosophy is to create South Asian wear that is edgy and original, while maintaining certain traditional elements. They believe their designs are unique to the individuals who wear them, hence why they create one of a kind pieces that they don’t replicate. Their designs are for a woman who likes to stand out from the crowd and leave her mark in a sea of fads and trends. 


Indian clothing and jewelry have a history that can be traced back to ancient times. As time went by, trends diversified as each region in India put their spin on clothes based culture, geography, and lifestyle. Presently, traditional Indian clothing has transitioned into having a modern western influence. You can “Indian-ify” any clothes as long as you have sequins, gold thread, embroidery (beads, stones, etc.) and distinct thread patterns. Indian jewelry is just as unique and varies from religious to aesthetic styles. Stay tuned for our blog on the history of Indian jewelry!


Before France came into the limelight for fashion, in the 16th-century Spanish clothing styles influenced the world, and were well known for their elegance and embellishments. Today, Spanish style maintains its elegance but with a contemporary approach. When I think of Spanish clothing, I picture a woman in a beautiful, body-hugging, bold red, voluminous, jersey style dress with ruffles, and a rose behind her ear doing the flamenco.

Now back to the summer in Spain SS16 Collection shoot! We talked to the founders of the Grāfiti Creative Design House about what inspired them, what their vision was and what their target audience is.

“We wanted to feature lace and bold colours in multiple designs for this collection, and we felt the best way to portray them would be with a Spanish influence, like a Senorita in the Summer, Be Mine in Barcelona, Peach Sangria, etc… Hence, how we knew a Spanish themed shoot was perfect because they are so well known for their beautiful laces and vibrant colours!

We envisioned the gorgeous women of Spain in their big floral headpieces, crowns, and flowy gowns when starting our vision board for the SS16 collection.

It’s also why we chose our location to mimic Spanish architecture and their stonewall structures. The looks tied into our vision of a summer in Spain incredibly well!

When creating the looks we envisioned the gorgeous women of Spain in their big floral headpieces, crowns, and flowing gowns when putting together our vision board for the SS16 collection.

Our target audience is any woman who loves to be bold, look beautiful and wear confidence

Lastly, I feel that the team that helped put his whole vision of ours together couldn’t have been more amazing!! Everything came together perfectly!”

Now let’s take a look at the ravishing summer in Spain SS16 Collection!  

As you saw, the team did a fantastic job of meshing together Indian clothes with a Spanish flare. As evident with their vast use of bold colours, ruffles, body hugging designs, large earrings, hair combs, flowers and intricately embroidered manton styled dupattas.

This season if you’re looking for a lovely Indian outfit that comes with a Spanish sparkle, contact Grāfiti Creative Design House at Arriba, arriba! Ándale before they sell out!

Happy Mother’s Day!🌸


“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”

~Abraham Lincoln

As many of you know or now know, this Sunday is Mother’s day! Ahh yes, that one time of the year besides her birthday that we get to pamper her, show her how much we truly appreciate her and everything she has done for us.

Growing up, I defined a mother as the woman who gave birth to me and raised me. Though as I got older, I realized other women in my life playing similar roles. It could be the stepmom who came into your life later but raised you as her own, the sister who never left your side, the aunt who babysat and spoiled you or a grandmother who showered you with all the love she once gave raising your parents. So this year, I choose to celebrate all these special women in my life, Happy Mothers day to all of you!

Let’s not forget all the new mothers out there who were blessed with their bundles of joy this past year or the women who may only be mothers in their hearts, but are mothers nonetheless. #HonorAllMoms

This mothers day, we’d like to celebrate all these impeccable women! To show our sincerest appreciation, we are offering 30% off all jewelry.

Here at Banglez, our staff is dedicated to making our customers feel at ease while shopping, making their experience comfortable and enjoyable!

Also, as a special treat for the day, The Bow Tie Bakery will be bringing in her delicious cupcakes. We will be serving mimosas as well because a party isn’t complete without them!

Come into our Oakville store at 2387 Trafalgar Rd and let us help your mom feel like a queen for the day!

#MothersDay #ILoveYouMom

Have an awesome day!
