How VFiles is Changing the Way We Consume Fashion

Back in August, when I was taking a break from dental school and going on this self discovery/betterment road, I stumbled upon this series called Model Files on YouTube. As I watched the teeny tiny episode, I realized that this is the ultimate fashion reality tv show i was looking for (The first episode came out in May 2012). Except it wasn’t tv. It was online. But it was so much better than so many shows out there. So I finished the three seasons in one go. What made it work for me was that the show was so raw, and so detailed with inside information, and the cattiness aside, it showed how people in the fashion industry mingle, think, party, and work, from designers, to models, to casting agents. Even our protagonist is the casting agent, Preston, whose personality represents all that fashion industry is.

And VFiles represents all that fashion is now.

DEEPAK PERWANI – Everything But the Girl

If you go back and look at the history of menswear, you will be seeing Deepak Perwani’s name a lot and look at the brand now and you’ll see it has established itself as a prominent womenswear brand now. But what came as a shocker was the announcement that Deepak Perwani will now be showcasing an only menswear collection at the A/W Fashion Pakistan Week.

Beyond the Hype:

In Fashion, it’s hard to tell what’s really real. There is so much hype around everything. So many euphemisms, so many sales gimmicks, and so much “positioning” that to get to what really is going on… that takes some hard looks. This week we have quite a few thought-provoking posts that have us question the very surface of the fashion industry. About diversity, about diversions and about those tricks they use to make us buy.

Best Dressed Men at the 2015 Grammy Awards

When it’s music’s biggest night, one would expect a lot of good choices for the women out there. Pop stars and fashion always go hand in hand, and when it’s the Grammy’s, then the competition gets even tougher. Male musicians also are the kind who know what their signature style is and over time have developed a look that’s definite to them.

Here’s my top picks from the Grammy’s red carpet Continue reading Best Dressed Men at the 2015 Grammy Awards

London vs. Milan vs. Paris: Menswear

As the Mens Collections come to an end, I was left wondering about a lot of things. If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you would probably know that I am in favor of innovation and creativity and tend to think of fashion in terms of personal expression and an embodiment of personal ideologies. With womenswear, it is easier to do ┬áthat but when it’s menswear, it seems one cannot get out of the preformed ideas one has about menswear. But thanks to rebels, it’s changing. Yes, well, not exactly rebel off the charts kind, but slow evolution is what matters.

Outfit: The Long Coat

I think that this coat is really the kind where one can be formal with it and informal as well. Like it works with anything. You can wear it with a suit, or like me, without a suit jacket but get a more formal look to an otherwise casual outfit.

I kind of feel older wearing it, is this weird? I don’t know. I think it sort of makes me feel like this is it, that this is the┬ákind of attire I’m transitioning on to. From very individualistic hipster to something so formal. Continue reading Outfit: The Long Coat

The Writer in Fashion

With Celine’s new campaign featuring Joan Didion, it became evident that writers and authors will always be an influence on the masses, and they have the power to stir things up whenever they want. Buzz Bissinger once wrote a piece for GQ Magazine where he told the world about his addiction to designer leather, and how Gucci even invited him over to show him around, and it was only because he had spent so much money on them. Writers, one way or another, have a hand in the fashion world through their own influences. They’re also celebrities, and they’re also the ones with money, and with fashion, money matters.
