DLF Promenade Fashion Bloggers Meet2013

19th March, DLF Promenade hosted a Delhi Fashion Bloggers Meet which brought together 12 fashion  bloggers from Delhi and Mumbai. All the bloggers were given a challenge to create either of these looks.. Androgynous, Monochrome, Resort-Wear, Formal-Wear, Neon& Neutrals, Pastels, Graphical using apparels, shoes and accessories from the in-house brands available at the mall including Zara, Mango, Bebe, Aldo, CKJ, lacoste, Clarks, Tommy Hilfiger, Sunglass Hut, FCUK, Steve Madden., etc.,. All the looks were the judged by ace designer Suneet Verma..




My choice of theme was Androgynous for obvious reasons( that's my personal style and is still kinda untapped in Indian Fashion scene) and styled this adorable girl Garima, who happens to be a class 12th student, listens to Jazz and loves dressing up like her favourite Jazz musician who apparently dresses exactly like this..

Leather pants, Leather bralette, Biker Jacket, Bow-tie, Studded flats, clutch c/o ZARA
What and Why Androgynous??..

In today's day-and-age, as modern Indian women feel the urgent need to be empowered, I feel androgynous fashion (thanks to the masculine elements) is the need of the hour. Besides fusing style and chic glamour  androgynous fashion might also be instrumental in making women feel a little more powerful -- at least psychologically. In fashion terms too, androgynous fashion has been a source of interest and intrigue for ages but today, as society's boundaries change, the androgynous look is in vogue like never before. 

To put it simply, as Indian women become more independent and empowered, androgynous fashion can be the right combination of style, glamour, comfort and need for an archetypal desi female folk. It doesn't require you to put in hours and hours going through your wardrobe and sitting in front of your mirror to hit upon the right look. It's easier to don androgynous look and still you can mix up various elements right from your hair style to your shirt/top, trousers, shoes and almost everything and make it your personal style statement. So the possibilities are just endless. And since it's not very time consuming, it can come in handy for working as well as non-working women. It's the order of the day for all modern-day women.

It was a wonderful and an enriching experience. Its nice to see that fashion bloggers in India are finally taken seriously. It feels great to be recognized with such events as Indian fashion blogging scene is still growing and these events are like pat on the back for our little contribution in this big Fashion Cycle.
