Beetle Leaves and Queens: Mumbai Street Fashion



Images by Prutha Raithatha

Salwar Kameez/ Outfit: Sobo, Mumbai; Sandals: Mahabaleshwer, India; Bag: Kasidos

Spotted Avni outside my favorite restaurant in Mumbai called Swati Snacks [Yes, I know, I am such a Gujju]. On my trip to India I had been looking all over for someone in a perfect traditional Indian outfit with cool details. Avni had it perfect to the T. I love the Mughal Queen face detail on her string belt. Also her cuff and bag are incredible.

  15. Girls in Mumbai always seem to get it right in colour. I should be inspired to give black a break for a while.

    Maybe its the beautiful skintone too though...
