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.

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

Top Men’s Picks From HSY’s Website

So HSY, one of the best designers in Pakistan, finally got around to launching his website. When it comes to online shopping, not many professionals resort to adapting to the new trends popping across the world, one of them being having an online store for their brand. HSY’s website has a minimalist feel to it with an interface extremely easy to use.

Check out the website here http://hsystudio.com/

If you’ve always wanted to check out HSY’s work and couldn’t find a more reliable source to get to see his work, then his website is surely the best thing to happen to the groomswear industry in Pakistan. I say that because he’s essentially good at that and he’s the best groomswear designer we have at the moment. So be it sherwanis for the Baraat or the Kurta for Mehndi, the new HSY website has it all.

Here are my top picks from the website. Continue reading Top Men’s Picks From HSY’s Website

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  that 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 kind 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.
