Do It Yourself – Sash Belt

Since 2015, I’ve been thinking to¬†post about this Marni Spring/Summer 2015 inspired sash that I made (rather, designed and then proceeded to harass my tailor wale bhaiya to stitch it up because I don’t own a sewing machine… yet). But, unfortunately, due to studies, lack of time to blog/write, I was only able to publish this today.

So let’s go back in time to 2o15, shall we?

Specifically to the time when Marni showcased their Spring/Summer collection. The collection on the whole seemed to be inspired by Japanese sensibilities and aesthetics that included minimalism, organisation, structure, textures and even costume (the Kimono) out of many other elements. My favourite thing about the collection was the black and white graphic way of styling the garments, the use of peach/rose pink with jet black colour and that beautiful sash (both black and white)!

The sash itself was quite basic, but I loved how it was accessorised with dresses, pants and tunics. Versatile piece? Well, that I’d completely love.

How To Make The Sash?

Well, I bought some muslin and some lace, and rushed over to my tailor’s to get it stitched. He first made the base sash with a curved end, and then sewed on the lace onto it for the pattern that I wanted. You can play with different colours, but for me, black lace on off-white base works wonders for me, and goes with a lot of colours too!

And then wear it like the pro fashionista you are!

The sash in itself might seem like a complicated accessory because it’s long, not used very often, and the above shown collage just shows one way to style it, which could make you go like “eh, why should I make something when I can only wear it in one way?”

Worry not folks! Mosh is here to save the day! Soon¬†I’ll demonstrate¬†the 3 unique ways you can wear your sash and parade around like a fabulous diva!

Till then, stay tuned!

Patches + Clothes – Fabspiration (2nd Edition)

Trailing after the first edition of beautiful patches on jeans that I posted back in 2014, the trend originally started with DKNY back in 2014 when Cara Delevingne wore them for their advert, and nearly every brand has adopted the patches into their collections, because they are just so cool!

Here’s the second edition of patches on clothing (mostly denim though), with more inspirations for you to get hooked onto and revamp your jeans that you would be thinking about trashing/donating! I’m highly inspired by the pop-art comic representation at the back of my jacket… Might just DIY it super soon!

Pocket Embellishments – Fabspiration

It is a truth universally acknowledged that jeans are your best friends in the casual department of your wardrobe. And we often get influenced by “trending things” and buy a pair of jeans just because it has some embellishment that our other pairs of jeans don’t. And turns out, you don’t wear that pair of jeans as often as you’d think you would at the time of purchase. I call such purchases the “Fantasy Purchases” bought on the whims of a shopaholic mind that gets instant gratification on “owning something that we never had.” But let’s be honest. Jobs are rare, and I’m realising that my hard earned money is just as liquid as my economics professor once said and they do¬†slip by my fingers just as easily as water does.

But I do like a change in my wardrobe, and temporary ways to upgrade it, sound very appealing to me. Since I’m¬†in the mood for playing around with my jeans, a temporary stitching of patches, ribbons, rhinestones and other embellishments around the pocket region of the jeans seems like a great idea¬†where my pair of jeans get to don a different personality and become more playful!

Hence, stitch your desired embellishments in a way that it doesn’t come off while¬†wearing it, but once you’re bored of the look, you can easily remove them and bring the pair of jeans back to their original form, or make some other changes with it. I think it’s a fabulous temporary way to upgrade your jeans, without having to spend much!

Diwali Special Do It Yourself – White Shirt Decoration

Last week I found myself in THE hab, a haberdashery store in Bandra. To say that my time here¬†was anything less than amazing, creatively inspiring and fun, would be a lie. The store is actually like Disneyland for DIY freaks… I kid you not.

It’s no secret that I love wearing what the boys wear, mostly because of the raw feeling of wearing something really boxy, and not just tailored to be boxy for women. Hence, in my workshop, I experimented with¬†The Classic White Shirt, originally tailored for men, and turning it into a crisp Real Boyfriend Shirt.

Hey y’all!

So I’m back again! I’ve been MIA for proper reasons, I assure you. Pursing Masters degree is no joke, but I have to say I’ve been enjoying my studies a lot. So consumed I’ve been with my assignments and projects, it was really difficult to do something fun and post it here for you. But I suppose, now that I’ve given it a good 4 months to adjusting to my new life in Milan, I shall try and post more frequently. I can’t promise you that it will be all about fashion though. I’ve a new found love in cooking, so I might be expanding on my blog “portfolio” from now on. Of course, fashion will be my main love, but you never know…
