Kalaghoda 2011

Sunday, I went to the most awaited art festival of Mumbai - the Kalaghoda Art Festival. Its a 9 day long festival where artists, artisans, craftsmen, musicians, dancers, actors, authors, photographers, sculptors, etc come under one roof to parade their skills. It is a platform for new talent. A myriad of workshops are held in and around the festival, by the professionals of the industry, to help budding talent. The avalanche of creativity during this festival is truly phenomenal. Especially the gigantic art installations by various artists are always a treat to the naked eye. Here is a glimpse of the festival. Be there to believe it!

Kalaghoda : Literally The Black Horse

Kalaghoda festival also summons various forms of fashion. A major part of it being Hippie !

Personally, I liked the festival better last year - the stalls as well as the installations. But for those who haven't been there yet, its definitely worth your while!

Enjoy the fest!

S/S 11 Trend: Part 2

The S/S 2011 collection witnessed, in the history of leather, by far THE MOST exciting treatment of leather. Leather has received a complete make over. It's cut - it's fringed - it's ruffled! 
Feminine, flirty, short 'n' sexy leather dresses, skirts, tops, corsets, pants, even leather Kurtas(!!) are now at your disposal. The best part? It comes with a cascade of the most desirable colours, perfectly suited for  a bright and happy summer. Enjoy.

As much as I want to, unfortunately, I cannot reveal rest of the trends unless the issue is out! So wait for Vogue's S/S 2011 Trend Report - which will be out in March. 

Till next time. 
You know you love me ;)
