Bells Are Ringing

When I go through almost 4000 images I took during fashion week, and find one outfit on the runway that caught my eye, you know it is special. This Vivienne Tam dress, although pretty and simple had the longest sleeves ever. I thought the whole flowy silhouette of the dress and the 2 almost-touching-the-ground sleeves were utter genius and a must add to my closet.

Armor On: Street Fashion

Image by Prutha Raithatha

This guy blew me away with his eye and finger armor. What a cool, fun and original way to accessorize I say. And his attire with the shirt, bow tie and jacket on harem pants were perfect constrained whimsy backdrop for these accessories. Innovate away people!! It makes me love you..... XO

Pink Friday: Personal Fashion

Images by Surfaraz Maner

Coat: All Saints; Tunic: got it Tailored in India some 10 yrs ago; Shoes: Ashish for TopShop

Life is fantastic. Ask why? Because the holiday season is here!! Thanksgiving 4 day break was so fulfilling, I can't tell you. It mostly involved eating, sleeping, going out with friends, art, eating more, sleeping more. This is life!!

I finally bought a winter jacket after probably 3-4 yrs of wearing the old ones. Even my friends were getting fed-up of them. But I just didn't like anything for so long. I finally found this quirky winter jacket with HUGE pockets designed to fit an iPad! I don't have an iPad yet [coz I spent the ipad money on this jacket] but maybe these big pockets can act like my stockings this year and my santa can fill them up ;) [why am I winking when I HAVE NO SANTA!!!]

Bumped into Ben on the street again. I love this guy. And the guy on the bike just joined in cause he wanted to. BTW he had no upper teeth and I have a pic of him showing it off here.

Take These Broken Wings: Personal Fashion

Images by Ben Taylor

Leather Leggings: BCBG; Top: Complex Geometry; Leather Jacket: Versace for H&M; Shoes: Moonspoon Salon; Necklace: Bosquejo

I saw this location on one of my friend's facebook page and had to instantly ask what it was. She explained that it was an interactive art space created in an abandoned lot in manhattan to promote community building and education. The project is called Project for Empty Space. Project For Empty Space, is a non-profit organization, founded by Meenakshi Thirukode and Jasmine Wahi and is a seriously cool space to experience. Go check it out at 181 Stanton St, NYC.

My leather leggings and the Complex Geometry top are like my uniform in the winter. Seriously, my top has faded to a grey by now with the constant laundering. I can't get enough of my Moonspoons and honestly they get some serious attention on the street. SERIOUS!!

While we were shooting, a family found a parking spot right in front of the space and out of the car came these two 4-5 yr old boys. "Hey look. Dark Angel. Whow, Are you dark angel? What are you doing there? Is that your cage? Can you come out of there? Why are you locked in? Why are you a dark angel? Are for real?" I had to calm the boys down by saying that I was not for real and not going to hurt them and that I was just playing Halloween with my friend to take some pictures for a school project. LOL... I hope they can sleep tonight!

Every time we shoot, some comic experience like this always happens. Just what makes the whole project so much more interesting. Reactions of people around you is such a spontaneous unexpected element.

What did everyone do over the weekend?

Wild Child: Street Fashion

Image by Prutha Raithatha

Big hair and wild print, you know I am sold. I do have to also say that I like her bra, the little that is peeping from her top. But ultimately, I would do anything to have hair like her's for life!!
