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!
