The Fashion Diaries - I
Yes...it's been more than a week I'm back from my trip to Bombay.
And yes....I got time to sit down & blog about it today.
But what to do? When it comes to work, I'm a stricter boss to myself than anyone else has ever been. And right now, work is as maddening as work can get.
Anyway, how have you all been? I know I've been MIA on the blogosphere for a while........but am back now, so you'll see a lot of me on both my blog & yours! :)
As for the trip I took to one of my favorite cities on Earth, well.......I had a blast, to say the least!!! But then, that's what you get when you mix fashion, friends & a whole lot of fun!!!
Here's a low down on the Fashion Week fever I've yet not recovered from:
- Running around from one designer's (mostly friends) show to the other's can sure be hectic, but equally adrenaline-pumping fun too!
- I packed in back to back fashion shows, hours of shopping sprees from street markets to Zara stores, hogging on yummy vada pao, not missing out on 'Mad Over Donuts' donuts & Naturals fruit-flavored ice-cream, ogling at random Audi R8s at Marine Drive, singing at the top of my voice with friends at Carter Road, hanging out with buddies at Bandstand, catching up with old friends - all in 4 days! *achievement alert* :D
- Thrift shopping is crazy fun, awfully exciting, blissfully rejuvenating & quite expensive when not done in a limit... :P
- All the backstage rush, decked-up models, even more decked up show-stoppers, pretty clothes, talented designers, free-flowing creativity all around, amazingly well-dressed people, non-stop click of cameras, rhythmic tap of high heels, crazy fashion sensibilities & do-not-care-what-others-think attitude, the glamour of a show and the creative fulfillness of the people who have worked hard for it - all this & more at a fashion week makes me realize why fashion is what I chose above everything else. <3
