A white lace sundress and easygoing wedges can make heads turn – to achieve the office going look just throw on a light jacket or a scarf. The pairing with a jacket can be just as relaxed and comfortable, but looks way more professional when meeting clients.

 Summer can be a challenging season to dress for many women. What is the right length for a dress? How little or How much skin to show?

This is because we reveal more about ourselves and our body than in any other season and have fewer layering tricks at our disposal to either cover up certain parts or create a nice silhouette.  But we can see these challenges as opportunities to explore fashion and create a new look by playing with scarves, jackets and colours.

Dressing for the Summer Evening? Try this Silk dress. If you believe in wearing ethical clothes this can be the dress for you. Silk material is excellent for the summer as the fabric breathes and can keep you cool on a sultry outdoor event. It is a bit more special than your day and work dress. But don’t keep your nice clothes just for parties you should wear your nice clothes as often as possible so I would suggest that you wear this silk dress to work and during the day too!

Summer is here to stay for a while – go out and invest in a dress and when you chose a dress make sure it can take you from day to evening and weekend in style and well-deserved confidence.

Ethical and Sustainable Fashion Shopping can be fun and good for the soul  but it is not always straightforward and simple as it requires some research. Before we get into serious research stuff – Let us focus on you First.

What are you passionate about? The environment? Small carbon footprint? Handmade Fabrics? Fair trade? Locally sourced materials? No child or slave labour?

What you care about and what you value is different for everyone else. It is not easy to check all the boxes that make a product Ethical and Sustainable but things can become simpler if we narrow down what your priorities are  and what is available to you.

It is important to know that the companies you are supporting and the clothes you are wearing did not harm the environment or people.

But lets not fool ourselves – the clothes themselves need to be attractive and something we want to wear. No matter how environmentally friendly they are if they don’t fit or the colour runs – we are not going to be happy with the! We need to find out –

What is most important attribute of an outfit for YOU.

These include:

  • price
  • durability
  • comfort
  • style
  • colour
  • material

Indigo dyed Fabric

Some of these may overlap. Before embarking on your shopping spree it is always a good idea to make a list of exactly what outfits you are looking for. Jeans, tops, dresses, work wear or party wear.

Online shopping can be the easiest and many brands have a transparent trail that will let you know exactly where the clothes were sourced, right from the material to the stitching. You can chose from the ones that share your values and ethics. Check out the brands mission and vision page.

In India we are specially lucky as we have an abundance of craft bazaars where we can buy handmade products directly from the producer groups.

In Delhi we have the Nature Bazaar at Andheria More and Dilli Haat at INA.  It is very cool experience talking  to the people who have made the products and are selling them right at your door step. You don’t need to travel to remote parts of the country to buy a Jamdani or a Chanderi. Often the crafts people are happy to collaborate with customers to produce one off custom made designs for a small fee. If the clothes you buy from crafts people don’t fit perfectly please get a tailor to alter it to your size. Our crafts people need us to make a living and when we buy from them we also give them valuable feedback so that they can improve their products and making them more contemporary and market friendly.

When looking for Ethical and Sustainable clothes do not be too hard on yourself remember every small step you take makes a big impact.

This Month’s resolution: Drink more water to get the Big Win. While it may not sound as the most exciting New year resolution, it can be the most rewarding.

 In one drop of water is found all the secrets of the ocean

Khalil Gibran

Little steps can have a great impact in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

This is our third story on this monthly series  that aims to help you develop and adopt a positive lifestyle change to achieving the Big Win. We all know that drinking water is  essential for us to stay alive but did you also know that-

drinking water can improve metabolism, prevent fatigue, help you detox and reduce stress.

So what is stopping us? Here is how you can embrace this habit?

Drinking 8 glasses of water is doable enough but our busy schedules make us forget, we substitute beverages for water and of course too much caffeine. The easiest thing is to listen to your body and drink water when you are thirsty – but it is easier said than done so here are a few tricks to make you fall in love with your water.

Make jugs of naturally flavoured water using fruit, veg and herbs—
Here is the recipe to make a refreshing drink:

To make the infusion, you can start with cold water or, for a stronger flavor, with hot (not boiling) water, as this will help extract flavor. Set the water aside until cool and you can chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving, or add some ice cubes.

Here are some of my favorite combinations:

  • Slices of orange, lemon and lime with fresh mint sprigs
  • Lemon and cucumber
  • Pineapple chunks and slices of fresh ginger
  • Dried rosebuds or rose petals—you can use fresh, but the dried have a more concentrated flavor
  • Fresh or dried lavender

Water responds to our thoughts, energy vibrations and emotions and the energy in its environment. So next time you go to drink a glass of water, give it a little love and feel how it nourishes your body and soul.
What healthy lifestyle choices have you adopted this year? Please do share your experiences with us in our comment section.

The Indian models are gracing the covers of top international magazines and also walking the runway for Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Chanel.

You would think that Fashion runways are about clothes but now the choice of models draws just as much attention than the clothes! the presence of Indian models have created quite a stir in this field.

About time the world took notice of the beauty of the Indian woman.

However, it is not simply about India having beautiful women – this Indian presence can be traced to:

 Firstly, the increased ability of Indian consumers to buy international brands and it is believed that soon India will be one of the largest consumer markets.

Secondly, due advancement of technology which is giving models access to the  global agencies resulting in new opportunities.

We must pay tribute to Priyanka Chopra for paving the way on international scene for our Desi Girls.

 

The stories of their individual journeys are filled in incidents overcoming discrimination and prejudice both at home and abroad.

The good news is that the notion of beauty is changing and becoming more versatile. Skin tone is no longer a standard of beauty internationally.

However in India we continue to struggle with prejudice relating to skin tone. The true representation of our population is not reflected in our advertising and films which continue to be dominated by an obsession with fair-skin.

It is important for Indian women to make a mark on the international scene not only for our national pride but we believe that they can be champions for Make in India hope that this will open the doors of the global markets for our  Desi-designers and crafts.

We are keeping a close look on: Radhika Nair, Bhumika Arora and Dipti Sharma who have graced the covers of Vogue Italia.

The minuscule shades  have become the glasses of choice of the fashion trendsetters like Bella and Gigi Hadid who are wearing these glasses every where – On the streets with their hoodies and on the Red carpet.

The Hadid Sisters are early adopters of the Look!

Spotted everywhere from Miu Miu to Louis Vuitton, the origins of the Matrix-esque glasses can actually be traced back to designer Demna Gvasalia, who showcased small black sunglasses for Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2017 show. Kendal Jenner was also seen on the runway sporting oval shaped frames with tinted-glasses.
