Lazy Sunday: Personal Fashion

 Kallol Dutta is a young Indian Fashion Designer who has a mouthful to say about all things fashion. He likes breaking rules [more like not following them] and speaking his mind about things that upset him about the industry. Luckily his designs are strong enough in their statement, creativity and originality that they support all his opinions about fashion in general and you can tell where he's coming from and what he means. 

 When I went to Indian in February I finally got a chance to meet him in person and place a couple of orders for clothes I had been eyeing from his previous collections. This white dress is one of them. It is already a spring/ summer staple and it is utterly befitting to my fashion aesthetic.

False Projections: Personal Fashion

Images by Jackie Russo 

Dress: Givenchy; Shoes: Sam Edelman 

In an attempt to try something different, which doesn't always work out, this was one of the times when I am not sure it did. We used my roommates projector to project a video I took on my iphone at a club one night on a wall and attempted to make a video of my self in front of the projection. We even added original music made by my friend DJ Miriam Rosas to the video. But it didn't really work out like we wanted to entirely. Mostly because we were just winging this huge process without much preparation and hoped it would turn out great. The final outcome wasn't bad, just not upto our standards so we decided to hold off on the video. In the meanwhile here are some of the glimpses from behind the scene.

When Two Cooks Spoil the Broth: Styling

Hrishi and I recently did an engagement shoot for Hrishi's friends Ben and Lavi. In the hopes to not make it super cliched, this is one series I came up with. Did the styling, concept and shoot. I was too excited with the result so had to share on the blog :) 

What do you guys think?

Waiting For My Sinking Boat: Personal fashion

Leather Dress: Topshop; Shoes: Sam Edelman; Jacket: Zara; Ring: Manish Arora for Amrapali jewels.

I am utterly blown away by this series that Hrishi shot and edited. I love every photo! 

I have been trying to shoot in front of this sinking boat for over 2 years and just because it is quite a hike from Mahanttan I never made it until last weekend. It was totally worth it ofcourse. When it comes to styling I feel like there is always a tendency to do very pretty flowy dresses in abandoned locations as they form a cool contrast of pretty with the ugly or then the goth look cause it just goes with the abandoned dark theme. But I wanted to try something different and go for a slightly si-fi, indian, leather but with flowers wearing creature waiting for her sinking boat to arrive and take her to a her final destination. But don't worry, the journey to there is still light years away.
