The Truth about Trends and Bloggers


Based on my past experiences with Reliance Trends, it was a pleasant surprise to see the overload of bold colors at their Korum Mall, Thane, store. There definitely has been an effort gone into bringing bold and funky prints across different styles. This boldness and funkiness came through when I was almost pulled towards the ethnic harem pants by Naatak Mandali (under fusion by Reliance Trends). As part of my mix ‘n’ match fetish of 2015, I chose to pair the pants with the sporty mesh top by Intribe. The fact that I could achieve this look was soo unexpected that I missed having mojaris.:) Looking beyond the Indian fashion brands' obsession with having unfocused collections and messy displays, Reliance Trends is breaking the mould.

Speaking of breaking the mould, professional blogging in India is still considered to be just a hobby. It is saddening that we fashion bloggers still have to jump through hoops to get permission for clicking pictures and for participating in contests. I honestly feel that I could have done much better in this contest if I did not have space constraints (“You can shoot only in the trial room area!”), time constraints (no accessories), or interruptions (a lady creating havoc at seeing a camera in the trial room area – I mean she had a smartphone with her! :P). I would complete this look with a jhola bag, a few chunky bracelets, and of course, mojaris.
