While our city has been swallowed by financial troubles, and demonization has become a legit excuse for not indulging in fashion at the moment, the Indian fashion movement has a very low key vibe unless things take off fully after another season of Amazon India fashion week scheduled to happen in March.
Today I am going to emphasize a little more on the traditional rather than the modern , and after the mainstream use and strangulation of the word FUSION, I think we should open a poll on what should we call this form of dressing ? From subtle fusion , to horrendous fusion, my few grey hair have seen it all . And since we are doing this poll, maybe think about a new term for " FASHION BLOGGER " too ?
Blogging industry needs so many new names . Five years before, it was a different charm to explain to someone what you do , exchanging cards, telling them how blogging is the new age of fashion.
Now even my neighborhood DHOBI knows about fashion bloggers . " Kal hee madam aayi thee photographer ke saath !! Boli main fashion blogger hoon , aapke yahan photo lena hai "
Clearly the Fashion blogger wind has reached places , and the bloggers have left the stable and are running wild down the road influencing as per their own capabilities/incapabilities
Why are Medical or legal/financial services blogs not mushrooming like the fashion or lifestyle blog? The answer is a no brainer, coz neither you require a professional degree nor a formal education of the subject,nor ownership of a requisite number of dresses/accessories/footwear.And the best is that you need not even have the vague sense of fashion styling or even dressing up. It adds to your snob value if you do not possess writing skills.It really takes talent to misspell words and rephrase( make a hash ) idioms as per ones personal sensibility or translation skills (from Hindi to English ).Well, no one has got a Literature award for writing correct English on a Blog but who knows one day such fractured english may win you an Ingenious Award for Fusion English. If Singaporeans are proud of their Chinglish, why can't we be for our Hinglish...?? After all we are the koll centre ( call centre )of the world. Don't believe me !!! Sample this- "The whether these days is "magicfull" so I opened the window and let the atmosphere come in "
Since the Fashion and Lifestyle Industry has decided to slowly phase out the following Influencers who have a decent sense of fashion,knowledge of styling, updated on the latest or upcoming trends, interacting with designers, engaging writing skills, fresh talent would be inducted in the next financial year.
So come one come all. Criteria for joining the Fashion Influencer community is us under .You can be an eligible blogger if you are:
1.Shuffling between jobs (part time or just for fun )
2.Out of a job and taking a sabbatical (read unable to fool the next employer )
3.Modelling ( you will automatically be pushed four ranks up ) and utilizing the time between assignments
4.Run out of money,boyfriend has thrown you out .Want to get even with the evil world.
5.Page 3 aspirants (preference would be given to candidates who could murder to get a selfie with Sonam Kapoor or any of their favourite movie stars )
6. Fashion week bloggers - Bloggers who attend to get their own Paparazzi moment in front of a street style photographer and has no interest what happens on the ramp. Talk to them about any show, and swear you would regret bringing the topic up . Forget about the show- There is so much confusion in what season they are attending .
Wow ! Everything in this fashion world is worth inspiration . Honesty does not flow very easily.Its effect is yet to come and you may hate me as of now. But I truly hope that I am able to wash down everything here.
Okay Surbhi - STOP Enough........ Breathe In ...... Breathe out ......
Now since my rant is over, enjoy the outfit I wore for AIFWSS17 which took place in the month of October - Treat this as your season hint and grab that Cuppa coffee now.
