What is the true meaning of Fashion? Let’s try and decipher it. Mind you I am no Guru at this but it’s a subject that most would attack only after someone makes a headstart… Here goes Full clothing to cover a body(Do not laugh here as this is serious designing at work on my revu!).

A Alter the shape with sharp objects(scissors). Hmm ok. snip, snip, snip, . Whoa. The hemlines are all wrong, its gone up one way and down the other. hey that’s called uneven hemlines. Where are the sleeves gone.? I used it as a small bow on the back of this dress. wowo that’s a DESIGNER DRESS!

S Sigh of happiness? Or sadness?(this is important) because after all the sniping what shape the garment takes is supposedly and blatantly revealed to the outer world(read friends at parties… page 3 if possible). Happiness meanz people want to replicate it and sadness means constructive criticism of the garment and supplementing it with “you should have gone to xyz designs”, the sleeves should have been a lil higher… and so on and so forth…

H The higher the better… I neednt explain that, right?

IIconic emulation of garbs which lead to being with it and in with it! Huh, I do not know what this means literally but if Farhan Akhtar can use a hair band for his hair why cant you?

OOrgasmic. Do not get the wrong idea here. Its all about the pleasures and the oohh’s and aahh’s that you can draw out of the audience watching you in that piece of clothing dahlings!


That is definitely not Fashion. I believe it to be an emulation of the other side of the world.

Look at it this way…

Men – Bless their souls. Never in the midst of any controversy for wearing clothes. Always wearing an assemble which resemble an ensemble.  `yikes! The fashion bugs got me. Jokes apart. Men have their shirts and trousers to wear along with shoes for work and ties with designs etc. Belts to hold them pants or to hide a bit of the bulge but it’s a must and of course the weekend sees him wearing a short, berm with T shirts and sport shoes… That is a perfect RAYMOND man for all. But hey… today when you wear a Kurta with embroidered borders and embellishments with a dupatta… You make a fashion statement! WOW. What people have worn pre independence comes to be called fashion in the millennium. Guess that’s what it is when they say Old is Gold.

Women – Now I am gonna get a lot of flak for this but hey I am gong to write this thing without any fear at all. What the @#$%@ …. Here goes…

The most popular super(Indian) model claims that they look their feminine best in sarees and the next moment you see them scorching the ramp with crazee ensembles which resemble two different garments attached to one another with a cut here and a bow there and frill here and a tack there… Its designer… so sew it buddies! Sarees were the only garment which was seen on the women in India. Today… snip, snip, you have a Salwar/Kameez(very decent and eye pleasing) snip some more. hey you have a figure hugging Kameez. chup badtameez! Snip some more and you have knee length berms(pedal pushers.?) snip some more and you have hot pants, snip some more…. Leave it right there please.

Long flowing skirts which did replace the saree in emulating the west, were the last best thing that happened to women’s wear… snip more and you got a knee length skirt… hey that’s not so hip… so snip some more and voila you have a hot skirt called a mini… can it get minier….sure… snip, snip… you got a micro… hey…hold on… whoaa. What is this gibberish? Man I am not with it … its FASHION. Simple t shirts gave way to sleeveless t’s, gave way to apna ganji’s man… gave way to the straps getting narrower called noodle straps.~ yikes~ I have given up eating noodles… I refuse to gobble up a fashion statement. Good old trousers gave way to jeans…. No harm done, gave way to figure hugging jeans(whatever happened to comfort fit? You ask… the answer is. Fashion is being comfortable in as UNCOMFORTABLE circumstances as it gets, gave way to low waist(HUH?) to 501’s… Savvy?

Please do not take this as criticism takes this as an insult to our intelligence. Why do we need the west to tell us what to wear and what not to? Is fashion in emulating them or making our own garments to speak a global language? Can’t the saree be tied in various ways and be turned to a fashion statement?(Watch the serials on Star, Zee and SONY if you must) I am not against this so called fashion brigade but it just crosses your mind to think and say STOP! We are definitely better off by selecting what we feel is right. The physique, the complexion and the attributes of height, weight should be the deciding parameters to make a statement.

You need to decide what you want to wear and not ape it! Get it…

Fashion is not a good word as it has synonyms and synonyms degenerate the original. What is fashion if it outdoes fashion itself and creates new fashion out of fashion itself…? HUH did I just say that…

You wear what you like and make a statement don’t let the others dictate you. Why do we want to land in trouble with the morality of the society and abate dangerous stares? Why lay awake in the night thinking about your progenies who have gone out for the night on town wearing a mini something? Let’s be a little better than that and look at fashion as a statement which does not in any way harm the decency of the society we live in.

I don’t know why… But I did it… So help me god!
