>Traveling is one of my passions…and fortunately I have gotten a chance to do quite a bit. It is when I learnt and discovered different cultures..different people …different lifestyles and hence different fashions.
Every time I traveled its made me change some thing or the other about myself or rather my sense of style and it is now after so many years that I have realized this fact. The world is becoming global in its true sense of the terms, I remember as a kid I would never understand fashion being so diverse and my mum saying that ‘ you cannot wear this back home’..this sentence would just make me feel so awful. Till a few years back, I would face this incident very often in my life but not anymore…I feel glad to see the same styles and colors dominating the stores a few weeks after I see them abroad…and this site is just so overwhelming.
For example…till just a year or two back one could not be seen wearing those tiny shorts in the open or as a matter of fact finding dresses was a tedious task but now my observation totally over rules this site. Hot pants..miny skirts…have become a common site be it parties…or even in the day….the trends in the newspapers, magazines etc. actually promote these tiny things and even give you suggestions on how to wear them and where to get them..this truly shows how India is progressing and adopting the global sense of style. Lately, you go to your favorite store to pick up the dress you liked and to your heartbreak..you don’t find it anymore..apparently you soon find out ..its sold out..and its one of the hot selling style..and just like you others also imagined wearing the same dress on new years or Christmas…and you are just left wondering this never happened till two years back…no one really wore dresses and Christmas was never a big deal.
Well the site is liberating…its good to see well dressed people on the street..be it guys or girls..everyone seems to be taking interest. Another example ..could one ever imagine men walkin down in ‘Pink’…a year back…well offcourse not…It was always a color synonymous with girls but now guys seem to be carrying it off with panache and to my surprise my friend has developed this weird theory…’‘My guy should have the capability of looking classy in pink’..thats become one of her fantasies…and to your surprise the hot selling colour for men this season (S/S 2010) is orchid…yes..its true…check out Kazo….S.Oliver….Esprit…the color dominates the men color chart..
India is surely picking up…and its very exciting to see this….more updates and more fashion through my eyes coming for you soon..till then…keep responding and updating..!
