MY FASHION MANTRA: BE THYSELF AND SPREAD THE CHEER

Fashion – well, it’s a personal thing and can have a different meaning for each individual. I am a fashion designer myself and my job involves making my clients look more fashionable. Feels so good to pen down thoughts on the subject very dear to me – Fashion.

First things first - Fashion goes well beyond just how you want to be seen or perceived. It’s an extension of who you are and how your presence makes a difference to those around you. Here are my tips on how you could carry a fashionable persona.

  1. Be Thyself: I don’t believe in following trends blindly. What I wear makes a statement about myself. So, here’s the checklist that I always follow – does it represent me as a person, do I feel comfortable in it and can I carry it with confidence. Classy is my style. So, I choose subtle prints, earthy colours, handcrafted jewellery most of the times. I don’t wear high-heels because I don’t find them comfortable. Likewise, I always advise and help my clients create a style that is unique to them.
  2. Experiment & Imagine: I believe in being original. So, I do a lot of mix & match of fabrics, styles & accessories. The imaginative mix of these elements creates an outfit that stands out.
  3. Beat the Street and Go Authentic: Most important agenda during my travels is, you guessed it right, shopping. I always believe that the cultural pulse of a placeis felt on its streets. I have created some great collection out of my street shopping – be it night market in KL, silk scarves in Hong Kong, antique silver jewellery in Jaisalmer or Pashminas on the Shikaras at Srinagar. They all adorn my wardrobe and add to its uniqueness.
  4. Go conscientious: I make it a point to buy from local artisans. It helps in many ways. You get stuff that is authentic and handcrafted. I also don’t bargain too much with them. We don’t do that at malls, do we? So, why bargain with poor artisans?  Broad smiles on their faces make my purchases worth far more than I pay. I have developed good relations with many such artisans and they send me the stuff that I like.
