Back to REality: Street Fashion








Images by Prutha Raithatha

So since I was really not happy with my yesterday’s post even though the pics were good, but the outfit just wasn’t me and I felt soo sick about it, I had to delete the post..hehehe.. Yeah I’m crazy like that. What can I say I’m a virgo. I can’t ignore personal imperfections. Not that I want to take fashion or life too seriously ever…but this really needed to go for me to be able to sleep in peace at night ..hehe

And to counter effect yesterday’s catastrophe I present to “myself” as an antidote some real inspiration, originality, true fashion guts and enjoyment. Meet Shail Upadhyay. He is a NY legend with his hand painted suits. All of his suits are insanely crazy colorful with designs noone else but him can pull off. The suit in the pics has cover pages of different magazines painted on him by some struggling artist. See the pages that were painted on the suit?

Also last Friday I saw the Bill Cunninghum Documentary and anyone and everyone who enjoys fashion, street fashion or art in general at all should definitely definitely go watch it. Just do it!!! I mean it!! Oh and BTW, Shail is featured in his documentary too. You can see many more of his suits there too. Or just Google him. I heart true talent and fashionistas.

PS: Manisha Koirala is his niece [for all the Bollywood followers to know].

  2. Oh, yeah, he's amazing!
    It's very interesting how communism propaganda lives side by side with Vogue cover on his suit.
