I love this look, and I think the best examples of it being seen on the catwalk are these ones below. I'm a sucker for beautifully made jackets, and with something as richly coloured as these, I'd love to be able to wear something like this. I also see it as a slightly 'fusion' style look. as it looks modern yet very, very glamorous.

I've seen in in some Bollywood movies, such as Rockstar which released earlier this year, and which I noticed made a lot of use of this style of embroidered jackets. I do also love how the actress in this picture decided to dress down the look by pairing it with some jeans, making it something which would work extremely well in the everyday world.

I haven't seen anything like this hit the shops just yet (apart from the men's section!) as the jackets I've seen are more about the bling and aren't always as toned down as these. I do love this look, but I'm not sure how well they would work on ordinary consumers for their special events. I love the whole modesty aspect to this, the full sleeves, the high collars and the beautiful workmanship, but it's probably something which wouldn't be very cheap and may not suit all occasions. Is this something you'd imagine wearing - or is it not dressy enough for special occasions?
