I am really resonating with Miuccia Prada's epic remark on her Fall 2017 collection, "it's about the madness of glamour..." To me, glamour is the juxtaposition of the east and the west. It is the intricacy that lies in Indian design, in sheer cascading fabrics, in hand-embroidery. Glamour is boundary-less, and spans all cultures, countries, and silhouettes. What is all that if not complete, utter alchemy? Here's an anecdote about how I came to be amidst the madness of my glamour.

Much of being a fashion influencer these days hinges on maintaining a signature aesthetic on social media while still being unique and engaging. It is one of the many aspects that makes the digital era both riveting and exciting for me. Exciting, because I get to treat my blog and social like playgrounds, and explore the nuances of Indian fashion as I please. Riveting, because I am constantly reading, staying abreast with industry trends, and trying to better my best.
I hereby rule in favor of authenticity and quality.

I'm an old school girl. I eagerly await September Issues, and I still rely on fashion glossies to sample perfumes. Anna Wintour, Suzy Menkes, Cathy Horyn, and Sarah Mower (among MANY others) are the czarinas of my fashion world. I love editorials bitterly, I live to read, and I couldn't imagine existing in a world where words ceased to tell fashion stories. Off-late, I've been on an active lookout for fashion writers - you know, those that could envision themselves spending a lifetime learning fashion's nuances (not necessarily through formal education), those that have earned the right and privilege to be fashion arbiters; whose Op-Eds and Collection Reviews may have received failing grades at one point, but nothing could stop them from developing a voice and passion so fierce, it can spawn a whole new generation of fashion leaders.
Big shoutout to SOMA for putting a Spring in my step through these bejeweled juttis!
