So, it is 22 April – Earth Day and I thought it is a good time to talk about an issue that has been on my mind for a while. Fashion Industry with it’s 80,000,000,000 (billion) garments produced around the world  and in the process contributing to drastically to waste water, air and sound pollution, river pollution and what not. So, the ever growing multi-billion-dollar industry isn’t so good for the environment. But you probably knew that right? Just maybe ignored it.

The Veet “Don’t Risk Dudeness” ad is now pulled out from the US market. Fair and lovely continues to sell ‘a lighter skin’ to Indian women and men portraying that you can’t be successful without it. In the fashion world, size 8 and up is now considered a plus size model. I will connect the dots. Read on. Continue reading
Are Indian men really stylish and fashionable? Are they outgoing and having fun with their clothes and accessories? Well, majorly no. Most of them are still conservative when it comes to dressing and you would not need to be a rocket scientist to know that. But this set of men at Wills India Fashion Week A/W 14 can make you believe otherwise. At least, you will know that there are sartorial eye candies in this part of the world as well, just few and far between is all.
If you are blogging in fashion and haven’t visited Independent Fashion Bloggers‘ website, well you are definitely losing out on such an valuable resource. But why I mention them today? Because I have some news. I was featured in their weekly round-up Links à la Mode for the first time!
Below are the 20 posts featured, the crème de la crème this week. And I completely suggest taking some time out to read them! You wouldn’t regret it one bit. It’s on my weekly reading list as well (a busy week at that, Wills India Fashion Week is just round the corner folks) So until I put together my next post, here this goes!
There are some obvious perks to dating a fashion blogger but what are the downsides you wonder? Some may even be skeptical of there being any at all. Not true. So well, apart from the ones I mentioned in my last post “Don’t date a girl who blogs” here is my semi- humorous list of problems that one can face dating a fashion blogger. Continue reading
Over the past month I have come across various versions of this – Don’t date a girl who travels, don’t date a girl who reads, don’t date a girl who teaches….. There were also counter articles written for the same, all over the cyberspace. Then I have come across Dating a designer : 10 things you need to know, 20 reasons why you should date a geek.. so on and so forth. But I haven’t really come across a lot related to blogging and especially fashion bloggers. So I thought to myself – let’s put it out there ! Continue reading
In their second edition, India Design ID brought together leading product designers and Interior brands and stores to Delhi. The exhibition got over on 16th February, but I brought back these plethora of pictures and inspiration. So, if you love anything click on the title to reach the said designer/brand directly! So all that I loved is right here, starting with what I wished I could bring home the most! And Warning : Long picture heavy post ahead!
The kind of statement that you can create in a Roksanda Ilincic garment is close to what having an Ajji product (especially the dot pictured here) could do to your home. Saying that it is a wall hung seating is under selling it. It will be the focus in a room, it will be like placing the sun on a wall, a visual dot so strong it could evoke thoughts and definitely start conversations. It is an art work in the sense of it feels like Kazimir Malevich’s black circle has become the red dot instead. I wish I could have it, like seriously !
There is something about women with short hair in evening gowns… pixies more than anything. It was hard not to give-in to this fascination!
All of those words probably don’t fit in the same line for a lot of us. But for me they truly do. And when I keep asking myself why is that.. my mind sends me back to a story. A personal story that I believe is important enough to be shared here. Continue reading
