Lilac Wine

20 Mar

I would probably label this week as the liberation week as we miraculously ended our exams sans nervous breakdown, you guys! So anyhow school granted us some leave before our final year starts come forth April . This is probably  week without any stress and pressure however subsequent boredom beckons loudly. This was the first time I attended the whole five day long event and were probably the most exciting days of my life. The air was infectious filled with talks about what the designer showed, who is donning what and basically an open bar for the media (score!)

Here are some excerpts from different shows

Oblivion

5 Jul

Life is hard. It is a fact which everybody realizes. Talent exists. People fight, they hover. Then what is the purpose of you? Will they remember you when you die?

Hello everybody! How was your weekend? Mine was a bliss since it was the last weekend before my school starts. Takeaway Chinese, Sex and the City re-runs  and iced tea- what more does one want?

The sales are in full swing. Don’t you get a rush of adrenaline to see that piece of cloth in a discounted price which you have been coveting the whole season? And the fights. Oh, the fight. That is probably the biggest entertainer! I went out shopping in this season last week. And I did  find stuff. Here is a look-

I have no fucking clue from where they belong since I just grabbed them after finding the right size

I also bought a Bodyshop conditioner and a pair of Blue ballerina flats. I do not use a lot of conditioner because I have inherited irritatingly silky hair from my folks but it smelled like forest. I love the blue Breton top (shown above) because I bought it a size lager and can wear it with a high-waisted skirt, shorts, jeans and practically anything or nothing at all because it is so long!

I have to tell you guys something. Okay two-

a) I wrote an article for High School Piece called ‘The Trend to be perfect’ where I talked about how teenagers and all women are obsessed in looking perfect and then attain harmful means to adapt to flawless skin/hair/body. Do check it out!

b) I covered Blake Lively for my internship where I talked about her ventures and her style check out the article here

Do you like the new header?

Until we meet again.

Fashion Moment

11 Jun

>

Stating that fashion is my life is corny but true. It is that iridescent light that shines upon my soul (which makes me poetic apparently). But there are three fashion moments which are crystal clear.
When I was a child, we used to go a particular mall because my parents somewhat loved it so we used to wind up there whenever we went shopping, The ground floor was a beauty counter which was filled with Givenchy, Maybeline, and Yves Saint Laurent which was rare in India at that time. The whole floor was rather boring for me that time but one day when I stepped down there and reached near the Burberry counter, I smelled a fragrance which I still have a whiff of in my nose. Normally I would quintessentially go over to play at the swings section but the smell of that fragrance and the joy I received when my mum bought it was beyond measure,
Last summer, the main reason I started my blog was because of the copy of British Vogue my sister brought for me from London. She did bring a bunch of other stuff but I read and re-read Vogue a thousand times before I announced that I wanted to be in this. Heck no, I wanted to write in it. To tell you the truth, I sucked at writing. I was vain and naïve and felt that fashion only revolved around what Jennifer Lopez wore at the Globes or what Kristen Stewart wore at some random awards. I am not saying that I am any better of a writer now but I have certainly broadened my horizons and know that fashion is so much more which I am yet to explore.
Two months back, I attended a fashion week for the first time. Previously, my fashion experience was only around the internet and writing whilst on my couch in a pair of pajamas. But when I reached there, I knew I was at the right place. The whole experience was a crazy dream. I had never felt so much excitement in one room.
What are your favorite fashion moments in your life?

My First Fashion Week

I wrote this article for Y Magazine’s Issue #3 which is out now! You can view the article here.
Will’s Lifestyle Fashion Week 2011

My love for fashion was revived when I received my first copy of British Vogue last summer. I feel that the love was there forever, but I never realized it. When my friends found it useless to talk about the Gucci takeover or Carine Roitfeld getting replaced, I realized that I wanted my voice to be heard for the first time.

After ten months of blogging and getting both positive and negative feedbacks, I contacted Santu Misra. We connected for a few months and then he asked me to cover the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week. I was fucking ecstatic! Timing, they say, is everything. When Mr. Warhol, a leading figure in visual art movement commented on fame, he said- “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Andy was right. Entering the venue was like entering a world where whimsical head gears and Valentino dresses were normal. I was in the right place.
I had viewed three of the shows- Kallol Datta 1955, Rehane and Urvashi Kaur. All three of them displayed their impeccable taste in the collection. All three of them were individualistic. All three of them embroiled creativity with the newest trends but kept their originality. Kallol Datta 1955 experimented with neutral shades in different silhouettes. In one of his interviews I remember, he says that its not about the print or the silhouette; its more of a social commentary than anything else. Amen to that.
Rehane paid homage to the much talked about color block and mixed it with more of a 50s American hairstyle and tube dresses. It was quite predictable since she is known to mix European Haute Couture with her collection. Subsequently, Urvashi Kaur also displayed her collection which started with a ballerina dancer dancing to a Sufi tune. She incorporated her collection with both Indian and western outlook. She to, used color block but in a very different manner than Rehane did. I loved the way everyone who was connected with her collection came at the end for the last bow.

The best part for me was perhaps, the time when we actually came out of the show. People came out with meticulous outfits displaying the latest couture trends and runway collections. I remember one person wearing a Gucci-like outfit from their Spring/Summer collection. Serenity.
My ephemeral ended after Urvashi Kaur’s show. I may have not got contacts or any other major break, but I definitely learnt a lot and gained a lot of experience.” Fashion happens every morning when you wake up“. I fully concur.
