If you check out our page on Facebook, you will already know of this. One of our bloggers here at Fashion and Frappes, Bidisha (sister and co-blogger to me) was recently interviewed by Royalty India magazine. To give you a little bit of background, Bidisha is a fashion designing student from NIFT Mumbai. She graduated in 2008, worked for a number of fashion houses as a designer for some years. She started styling almost as a hobby. She’s worked for both MTv and Channel V. Ultimately, she decided to go out into the world as a freelance stylist. She has styled for a number TV shows, advertisements and movies. She is now a well-known fashion stylist.
As a sister and onlooker, it has always been most entertaining for me to watch her work. Sometimes she is scrambling around for certain clothes, whether its a belly dancer costume or a white wedding dress in the middle of the non-wedding season. However, at the same time I see all the hard work that goes into this. I am amazed she has the energy to get up at 5 am for a shoot after getting home at 3 am in the morning.
In her interview with Royalty India she talks about how she chose to be a part of the entertainment industry, the work of a fashion stylist and what drives her.
In her next column with Royalty India she talks about fashion. She focuses on whats ‘mod’ and whats ‘odd’ – see her list here.
Do you, dear readers, agree with Bidisha’s list? Sadly, the odds are not in favour of the menfolk. However, I have to add my bit here. Sometimes in fashion, fortunately and unfortunately, the odd and mod appear to coincide. But I believe thats when its most fun!
