Words of a Leading Designer

By Vedika-

In a session with Indias leading fashion designer and founder of Gurukul School  of Design ,Mr.Raghvendra Rathore enlightens us with moral values that he learned from his journey.From the town of jodhpur in Rajasthan to becoming a fashion designer

Teaching us priceless values like doing things that Contribute to the agenda of your life for
You have no boundaries in this universe and to think that you cannot compete with people who are already at the peak of their career is just stopping you from being who you were meant to be.

According to him the Glamour world is a reflection of your own agendas.You need to start imagining things that you want to do and the universe will open up

He says”I was an introvert,And to be propelled into the universe of fashion was a difficult task
I was away from india for 8 to 9 years which boldened me before I entered the glamour world when I came to delhi”
“The journalists and critics throwing opinions at you.As you go farther on the way to success there are just more and more obstacles,there are haters but you have to go through it all and try again and again”

 

When asked that what does he feel on the ramp and all the spotlights on him , he says
“The ramp walk is like a medicine that reassures you that u have to do it again  and again ”
His brand is synonymous with heritage and the jodhpuri culture.
Personal moment of glory for him:
Being asked to fly on the fastest plane to paris to drop fabrics before a fashion show.
Mr Valentino sitting 4 feet away and asking him to pin a skirt on a model to make it look beautiful
He forgot who he was while doing this task in front of a tycoon.His hands were trembling but it was a proud moment for him.

The difference between a designer and a artist:

“Designer is a commercial pursuit of wealth and an artist tries to showcase how they see the world through their art”

Remember that the universe will open up opportunities as soon as you work towards the agenda of your life.

Fall (Style is back)

By Vedika,

Well guess, it wasn’t wholly a disaster after all (if u don’t get why I’m calling it a disaster read my ‘Fall Disaster 2018’ article. But don’t worry high class trends are coming your way.. This time it has a sprinkle of sparkle styled with suits and scarfs and even with one pieces!! Yass , finally! The fall spirits are back..This is a men-women combo style..it is for both tho there is a huge difference for styling it…

CYMERA_20180911_202041.jpg
Giorgio Armani”s Fall collection..

Now this is something ,isn’t it? Formal yet sparkly ..

Though if you want a back to school, Layering a sparkly grey /black/navy blue sweater with a white cardigan (not sparkly) and a plaid scarf would be considered trendy and you will Rock at the first day at school..Don’t forget to add layered necklaces,denims (obviously) and over -the -knee leather boots..yeah u gonna rock it..

Now coming to the men’s part.. There were a few styles that I could really get the hang of and this is one of them👇

Screenshot_20113-15
Balmain’s Men’s fall collection

It’s the spark and coat thing..Thought that spark is a little too sparkly , it can be worked out with leather shoes ,pants and a jacket with sparkle only in the pockets borders!..That would make the outfit way more cool..

And for back to school time , denims,shoes or sneakers and the jacket I just mentioned ..It will be attractive with a white tee inside..so u have to try it..

………………… EXPRESSALITE  ORIGINALS

So, You guys know almost everything about the trends as per the professionals..Now let’s get casual and create our own trends that you can actually show off.

1. The easiest way to style yourself for fall is a leather jacket , a scarf,denims,boots and a cup of coffee in your hand.Right?

2.now let’s see what else can be done?..hmm.. Oh yeah! How about a solid color jumpsuit styled with a woollen cardigan (preferable hot pink) and wedges.. Pretty weird right?..But it is not..let’s bring back summer colors in the fall idea!..Ur first day of school/college in this and the next day , everyone is like you ..Awesome right!

……………EXPRESSALITE ACCESSORIESS

1.Scarfs-  Don’t know why I am writing this cuz it’s obvious and a very old fall trend that never ends..but this time plaid scarfs are so working out..They are also very easy to pul off.

2.Bracelets- Now as per the clothing trends, best preferred are bangle bracelets and charm bracelets..Just so cute! Charm bracelets should be of many layers and not just one  that will make u look more of a party animal..And bangle bracelets for any outing or casuals

3.Shades-And how can we forget sunglasses. No matter what the outfit is , shades should always be cool. . Of different shapes(circular,hexagonal) and colors (blue,yellow,brown).. Brings your face out ..even if u can’t work ur outfit, ur sunglasses will work it for u!..

4. Jewellery- Earlier,  I told about layered necklaces so these will complement the charm bracelets..make sure they are thin layers and not too thick …And earrings , in trend are  chandelier and hoop earrings..or if u want to be more party or cool type then ear cuffs or ear spikes ..

 

This is just the start of fall

Xoxo😘

Fall Disaster 2018

By Vedika..

Fall is here and we all were excited for our back to school outfits but oh! The disaster.I watched the coverage of some fashion shows and neon animal prints are back in style..unbelievable.. Here are some photos from Tom Ford collection at NYFW 2018..

2018-09-11 17.56.11.png

Not sure how this looks to you but to me, it inculcates a Cheetah Girls feeling which is not very preferable at this time of fall..Though seeing that it has been brought in trend by some of the top designers, we have no choice but to continue this trend..now to actually give out a bolder style statement, I have come up with some ways to style this animal print and some ways not to..

The ways in which you should:

  1. Shoes- Leopard print heels with a bolder outfit (Black suits , Dark colored dresses) and smoky makeup would really bring you out. It would be like wearing a trend that in bulk is just ugly but wearing it with some swag that really shows ur confidence.
  2.  Style a leather zebra print coat with a descent white shirt will be perfect for ur formal places and don’t forget a pair of heels😅..Literally if you wear a coat without heels,it’s kind of useless unless you want to give a more sincere and disciplined kind of feeling.Remember heels are for intimidating .

3.Not sure about this one but is based on the main trend which is neon animal print..As shown in the above collection it is not going well except it kind of works in the 3rd picture. So this is more like a neon sweater dress over a white layer..so layering is coming handy in this and so it will work out

4. Stockings will totally work..No fear in styling them..so that’s basic.

Things u should totally not do:

  1.  Don’t try wearing those animal print pants..just never..They say a different type of funk that should not be worn by us casually or formally😅..It just wierds things out and I’m not recommending it..
  2. Don’t wear 2 different type of prints together in ur coat and pant or in any outfit..Think it’s obvious but just to remind…

Okay guys ..this is it but there are more to fall trends because they just don’t end..

U will soon find out the next trend …It has many things styled together and most begin with the letter ‘s’

The suspense😂..

Facing Writer’s Block

By Kriti and Vedika

What to write when you seriously don’t know WHAT TO WRITE?

This is the biggest question every beginning writer needs to ask now or later.

So, here are a few ideas you could probably use to get what to write.

  1. Firstly, you SHOULD carry a small notepad along with you. Mostly because creativity and imagination are the two things that can strike anytime. Then, you could write your ideas in one place and assemble them whenever you are free!
  2. What I usually do when I’m writing my fashion articles is that I see the latest fashion shows ..well most of those that I see have absurd clothes and silly things n I’m not recommending those untrendy trends to u..so watch the shows.. learn about the designers ..Read their blogs and then decide upon the best trend..
  3. If u think you are a good writer then a cup of coffee and a pen and diary in ur hand in front of a good sight . You will automatically start writing a poem or story..
  4. Now what else is important?? Ya right, we are currently doing article writing in our class and the topics are of the current problems like obesity n other things but to make it interesting, write about the current issues with a relation to someone popular whose life people would love to know about..that will spice up ur writing skills and intimidate the readers.
  5. In continuation to the last point ..write about the athleisure life of fit celebs or the beauty tips given by them..I swear it will get u more and more subscribers.
  6. Now though this is not about what u will write but how will u make the readers read ur article..Recently in a YouTube video I saw that they used a title like ‘Hair disaster ‘ so that people watch that video but in reality there was nothing like it..Don’t do that exactly but use a catchy title and the context should be similar obviously ..
  7. Continuing, My fashion articles always have a catchy title like ‘teal appeal’ ..it rhymes so it’s cool. Then our poems have a catchy title..
  8.  Like one of the poem”s title is ‘stars’..relates to dreams n fairy tales doesn’t it? Then the other is ‘beyond’ ..isn’t that like finding out what’s beyond but beyond what? So that will make the reader not being  able to resist it!!

WELL THAT’S IT FOR NOW!!

Hope it helps..keep reading our blogs ..they will keep u busy and u won’t be able to resist them..

Color Blocking!!

 

By Vedika!

Hey guys,it’s me! and today we have a new fashion advice!!..

This one is gonna be exciting, so tighten your seat belts and get ready..

For all parties,funky places etc. . Anywhere you go, this is just as unique as you and just as perfect..

So, what do you think is color blocking?…color blocking is not wearing monochromatic colors or adding a pop of color..It is completely different and trendy..

Definitely pairing a maroon belt with nude peach romper is cute but what about a red crop top with blue denims and white sneakers? Isn’t that even better?

Color blocking looks cool and you look open and like a bosss!

Personally,I have never really tried it more than once or twice but now it is my new favorite..

Even most of the youtubers these days prefer this new look!..

It was in trend when we go back to 2010s and it looks as if it is returning..

I think we all should be the first ones to set this trend back to life..shouldn’t we?

So,open your closet and pair all clothes with their opposites and go anywhere you like!

Teal Appeal

By Vedika Gupta

Teal is a tricky color in trend,though it might go well with colors like white,beige,black of course,orange etc.. There is a great need to understand the traits teal is related to before wearing it and it might as well be used in different styles on different occasions.

Preferably, teal is used as a funky color to be  worn on carnivals or clubs just to show how fun you are and confidence in yourself.

Confidence is associated generally with bold colors like black , blue,  pink etc. Often pairing teal accessories with these bold colors is generally a style statement to state how confident and carefree you are.

It is a color that makes you look versatile,timeless and elegant.

If you go further on this topic, there are different ways to style yourself.

You might try pairing a full sleeve teal shirt with black denims for professional meetings or even pair a plain white t-shirt with funky teal shorts for a fun and casual day. A white short dress with teal accessories for a party.

We can not tell you all the ways but can give you advices like how to pair colors with each other.

In short, it looks descent and can be worn on any occassion.

Nail Art Trends

By Kriti

Looking out for Summery Nail Art ideas? Here’s a list of top three styles you could add to the ‘Beauty’ of your hands!!

  1. Floral

Try out some floral ideas! Either fill the nail with flowers, or simply add a flower to a single corner. Maybe, colour all nails a fixed colour and paint a single flower on just one attractive nail.

2. French nails

French nails look super-classy on high teas and other formals. This is the simplest way for a quick nail design. Not just to stick to the white, try out new colours by painting just the tips of your nails! Trust me, they look so vintage!

3. Gray Suede

Colours like black go pretty well off with Grey Suede. It looks really nice with a base and the art with black. French nail art can also be tried with a gray base and black tips.

 

4. Glitter Nails

Glitters are an all-time fave! (For greater details on Shimmer, read our blog Shimmer Hurricane) Shimmery nails are very catchy for Disc-Parties and Girly-Sleepovers. One can either glitter-up all nails or paint just one nail with glitter and the rest with a shade of the glitter, as below! 😉
