Kuch kuch Kutch

Hello everyone,

so today i bring to you something which is very different to my usual style. I decided to purchase a ‘kutch vest’ from Safina Plaza at one of their exhibitions. Kutch is a handicraft and textile signature art tradition of the tribal community of Kutch, Gujarat. Its embroidery is traced all the way back to the 16th and 17th centuries when people from countries such as Afghanistan, Greece, Germany, Iraq, and Iran migrated to Gujarat.


Cobblers known as the ‘Mochis’ were taught this particular art form by Sufi Muslims, saints of Sindh. This art form started off as a means for the women to make clothes that fit their weather conditions, and slowly turned into a means through which they could make a living.

Designer who adapted this art form:

An indian designer: Karishma Shahani Khan, whose Pune-based label name is Ka-Sha, has chosen to work with the Rabaris of Kutch. Her work consists of contrasting textures and detailed surface treatments. She has adapted their traditional tie-dye technique, thread embroidery, mirror-work and appliqué.


This particular vest caught my eye owing to its vibrant colours and symmetric design.



I’ve paired this vest with dark blue denims and bralette. For accessories, I went with a yellow pair of earrings to keep the vibrancy of the entire outfit intact.



Since the time I’ve lived in India, Indo-Western clothing has been the most fascinating combination and always manages to look unique and well put together. It translates personality into your everyday wear.


Affordable Christmas Gift Idea (Ladies Edition)

Christmas time is near, which usually means we have to brace our bank accounts and get ready to splurge out on gifts for our loved ones. But fear not, for those who are limited on cash this month, Zara has got you covered. Personally, I love myself a perfume but the abnormal sizes that some come in make it difficult to carry them around. One day, whilst on a Zara shopping spree, I found myself looking at a very pretty package on the cash counter.

These roll ons are compact, long lasting, and easy on the eye and the cherry on top is that they’re only 390 rupees! So if you have someone who loves pretty and easy to carry items, you’ve got your best buy.
