Saree and lehenga draping(Instagram dig)

In india,saree (unstitched drape) is traditional garment worn by women.Saree is an evergreen attire in india.I personally think saree as old fashioned garment ,but it does add charm if you know which fabric and style suits your body type. Though saree is a simple drape ,but to make it fashion forward is a challenge, definitely not for dolly Jain .she is a celebrity’s drape artist.Making a career out of draping is just unusual and different.Before bumping into her posts I never knew there are tons of ways to drape a piece of fabric to give it a elegant twist.Even repeating outfits can go unnoticed with different pleating and draping.In her post she shows how to drape saree and lehenga in different ways no harm in checking her instapage😊 https://www.instagram.com/tv/B-mWPSIFqdp/?igshid=ojbda0l4bzxy

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.

Conserve Animals,nature, Environment, Basically world.(instagram dig-paper art)

Are we really conserving nature?Do we live in the world were animals are safe.Oh God who am I kidding?We as humans are not safe with our own species who will protect anyone,love the creation of God.

We live in the world,where money is the priority.Well there’s anything wrong in that.We cannot win the war empty stomach right?.But sad part is we humans forget that nature and animals, environmental factors needs our attention specifically animals,those poor creatures die because of hunger, forest disaster etc.God has created them to make human lives better,but we are destroy nature in terms of making a living, loading ourselves.

I have come across a beautiful art of making paper birds figurines.This artist name Niharika rajput is doing a unique art to spreading awareness of saving these little creatures through her art.I love the concept it is all hand made.It looks beautiful as home decor.I am amazed to see to see different kind of talent with spreading awareness in the world.http://www.niharikarajput.com

Binge watch.

As we are in that phase of life,where human contact is not advisable phewww.Many people, including me are binge watching shows , movies and what not😉.

Isn’t internet , Netflix, prime, social media and all other platform seems like a boon in this difficult time in our life.Imagine what if lockdown has happened way before social media , internet era,Ooops don’t even want to think about it,how boring our lives would have been , atleast we are keeping little sanity by watching our favourite shows and doing what we like and always wanted sometime out of our hobby.Otherwise,In the hoard of making money and paying bills,all were tired and exhausted.we still are, nothing really changed as much but atleast we have sometime to do what we like.OH! coming back to binge watching.Nowdays a not so famous show has become my favourite “Jane-the virgin”,yes it is kind of chick flick,but hey many women also like superheroes too.So man ,why not chick flick.I am not saying man should definitely watch these shows, just that sometime chickflicks are fun too.

So the story revolves around three latin-american woman,Jane is the main character who artificially gets inseminated..she is basically a teenager who wants to become a successful writer ,but with this incident comes as a shocker,later she decides to raise a child . she finds out the father of her accidently artificially inseminated child was her crush where she works.Then they fall in love but she already has a boyfriend,then she chooses between the two ,gets confused.There are lot of up downs in her life and her mother and grandmother mother.It is a rom-com series with dreams,life, aspirations of young girl.

It’s good to binge on some light hearted, different story genre.

Makeup,which doesn’t look made-up

Who doesn’t love makeup?.Most of the woman loves makeup and let me make this clear “we ain’t do it for boys”. Generally fasination about makeup starts right from childhood when a little girl grew up watching their mother put something on face to enhance beauty.

It doesn’t always mean to be pro. One can always learn.For some people it could be only mascara as makeup ,for some it could be only blush/lipstick.I mean everybody has their own version of makeup love.

So colorbar has come with this interesting idea ,where you learn and develop your makeup.I think it would be good idea to brush up amateur skills.Paint a face like a pro.

“saving the artisan”

As the title predicts,to save the fashion designer artisans in general of all sorts.I love this initiative where 14 Indian designers come together to save them from famine as the time is hard during pandemic.

There is always a soft corner on my heart for artisans who worked so much hard to make a fashion designer stand out.Of course ,a designer also works as hard as artisans to brainstorm a design,but without this creaters of weaving a vision into a garment fashion industry would have not been where it is now.As the world rank states”Textile industry is world’s second to share country’s GDP”

So these designer’s are selling their two best designs and share the profits with artisans.I people who can afford there designs should definitely support this initiative.I definitely love the cause.I am proud of such designers who thinks about people who are backbone of designer’s.All 14 designer’s listed below.

Agroup of 14 Indian designers have come together to set up a charitable initiative titled ‘Saving the Artist’ to support traditional artisans and craftspeople during lockdown and keep India’s craft traditions alive.

14 designers are selling their most popular products to aid artisans and domestic violence survivors – Jayanti Reddy- Facebook

 
Saving the Artist was recently launched by a group of designers as a fundraiser to aid artisans. Designers included Neeta LullaFarah Sanjana, Shriya Som, Archana Rao, Shehla Khan, Gabriella Demetriades, Jayanti Reddy, Akanksha Gajria, Nitya Bajaj, Eishita Puri, Sohni Patel, Shirin Mann, Suman B, and Ridhi Mehra.

Each designer will put up two of their most popular designs for sale on Instagram and the proceeds from the sale will be divided between the brands’ craft workers and NGO Sneha to support those affected by domestic violence.

“The #savingtheartist initiative has been created to help our unsung heroes of fashion who keep our industry vibrant and flourishing,” participating designer Jayanti Reddy wrote on her eponymous brand’s Facebook page. “In the hope to raise funds to support our embroiderers, tailors, and artists we’re putting together a group of 14 designers from the fashion industry and are coming together as a creative community to help support the families of our workers that need us more than ever right now.”
 
“This initiative to save the artist is to promote the backbone of our fashion family- our workers/ artisans,” Neeta Lulla told the Bombay Times. 
 
Many artisans and craftspeople are daily-wage labourers and have struggled as work has dried up during lockdown due to safety concerns and regulations. Some brands have continued to pay their workers’ salaries when they have not been able to work but others have stated that they do not have the resources to do so facing almost zero income during lockdown.
