Soul_works_official(instagram dig)

This page soul works by karima is all about dream catchers.she makes memorising dreamcatcher and boho stuff.Basically dream catchers were first noted in 1929 in the native American tribe of objibway.It was used to hung on baby’s cradle to protect them from bad dreams .The beads woven into a dreamcatcher symbolise the spider, the web weaver itself, and they act as charms to prevent good dreams being trapped in the web – these are the dreams you want to get through to you.

When I first saw this page I was stunned to see such intricate detailed Dreamcatchers.I have seen lot of dream catchers but hers is different.Nowdays Dreamcatchers are used for home ,garden ,office space decor.Dreamcatchers have cultural history about how the spider woman brought the sun back to the people of the world. Once, the objiway people were gathered together as one nation.

I love the way she makes this craft so beautiful. There are so many unknown cultures and history in this world ,which can be unfolded through arts and crafts.

Is haute couture (High dressmaking) dying /Pret e porter(ready to wear) dominates the industry?

Well, statistically majority of world population comes under poor/middle class people.So there is no question they will look for something cheap and can be use often.Custom made sewing is expensive ,it takes time, effort ,money and originality,which again is rare in today’s era.

I often wonder how McQueen,Yves sant Laurent,coco chanel and many other big designers do ton of shows and survive to come up with different collections every year.There is elite crowd who buys from world renowned Designer’s.while watching their shows I wonder how do they manage to sell such exclusive and expensive stuff every year.If they would have not been managing to sell, there would haven’t been any market for high end designers.

It concludes their is market for haute couture,fast fashion,street style etc.And to be honest fashion world has become more cluttered, exhausting , competitive but if there is a passion for fashion,then one must dive into deep water to see if they can reach the shore again.

Habit…Easy to break,hard to make and viceversa

Why do we hustle to make a habit which helps us to be better in something or a better person And on the other hand why bad habits are such an easy task. Sometimes I wonder why animals and other creatures doesn’t have to cook,earn,pay bills take all the worries in and try to find different channels to take it all out ,keep calm, keep going.

Most common example if one decides to lose weight, sometimes it takes lifetime to form a habit of doing exercise daily.while it’s so easy to eat junk and gain weight.Its all about putting an effort to make a habit.

One drink, becomes two,then three,by the time you realise fun drinking turned out be an habitual drinker(alcoholic).Does it take an effort ,but once the habit is formed it is so hard to live with/without alcohol.It takes tons of effort to stop.

Someone has said a meaningful quote”There is no free lunch”. Nothing in life comes for free.Humans are wired to work hard to do something good,make change.If things comes easy ,Goes easy,Comes hard stay hard.Good things takes effort and time, that’s why a enough number of years to make it,break it then again make it something good.

Though it does seems like a lot of efforts but good habit is always stay good helps to make life lovable, livable.

Boring but true, Working hard does bring fruitful success.Its okay to break the habit but always be consistent in making a new one for good.

How to combat greatest fear?

Human mind has lots of fear in life. some are brave to overcome ,some become victim of fear.Why do we have fear?

Does it come to make us stronger? As god is made us for purpose .It is undoubtedly sure that God has given us this trait to make us more stronger and fighting against gives us strength.

As a woman,I feel greatest fear is to get harassed inappropriately .There are majority of women in the world who can relate to this fear.For woman It become necessary to always look for safe places,safe people around.It is possible to combat inner fear and conquer it.Why It is not possible to combat that harrasment fear .World can be the better place to live,how can it be the safest place to live.

With technology we can do wonders.Is there any things which can do wonders to eradicate this fear.Sometimes I wonder who is to be blamed god or humans.God has made us but why he made us this way to get that mentality..Or it is human’s Fault to create that mentality.

Wish and pray hope this world become safest place for man and specially for women.

Some place Beautiful…..

Through painting,It feels surreal to revive pleasure of traveling to beautiful places.Traveling makes one feel alive to see different parts of the world unfold.

I have never been to Santorini (Italy),But those Bougainville,white walls,pathways,blue sea seems so mesmerising.Sometimes I Wonder how the creator of this world has thought about human being needs, to make this world a beautiful place through nature and natural beauty.

Though It depends on humans how we preserve and make this beautiful places more beautiful to enjoy, for us and for generations to come.Cleanliness always play vital role in Beautification of any thing.Who likes Garbage and filthy places,still we live in a world where nature and cleanliness are not appreciated.It is sad to see people litter and throw things anywhere they like.Industries play major role in polluting and destroying nature . Though Knowledge can make Man wise, so right from childhood , school’s should educating about preserving nature and cleanliness to make some change.

Let’s make this world a better place to live .

Digital platform for fashion collection.

As the world is lockdown.People from all around the place has started doing creative stuff which might not be possible before lockdown. I mean it is ironic to see how quickly human mind adapts change according to situation,who would have thought fashion week can also become digital,showcasing new collection a new collection without going some place beautiful, setting up a stage ,doing hooo- haaa about invites.

Designers are also evolving with time, whether if its a world wide known designer or around the street designer they are keeping us through about their work and struggles to showcase a collection.During pandemic Fashion weeks are called off,so to keep up with enticing people Chanel has launched cruise collection through digital platforms.

Watch “The Cruise 2020/21 Collection — CHANEL” on YouTube

Titled as  Balade en Méditerranée’ (A trip around the medditarean)

As they say change is only constant.Fashion designers creative minds can’t be challenged.Designers make some or the other way to make loyal fans engaged in buying activity.

Will the shopping/splurging money mindset make change after this crucial time gets over?

Did something really changed during lockdown specially our needs and desires?

Well, That will also cruise with time.
