6 Steps to be an environment-conscious Fashionista and Why you should be one! (Earth Day)

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 [1] 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.

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.

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.

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

India Design ID 2014 : Designers and Brands to watch!

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! 

Ajji

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 !
