Of Ikat And Brazilian Sunshine





Pictures - Sohail Singh 
There are many journeys in life which each of us have to take alone. And the first step of each of this journey is accompanied by a fathomless fear and anxiety. That's when the call for a smooth sailing from family and friends makes destination achievable and the process an experience of justifiable pride. With claims of fashion blogging being a hobby or frequent trips to shopping malls being on a decline, my journey with TrimmingsAndLace has become a learning and rewarding experience to live every day. The same seems easy because amidst the many who shun you, there are many who rest their belief in you and except the same from you. 
This very much is a day in the life of Rabia N Singh and Akash Sinha from October. An idea tends to explore similar dimensions and stages after its very inception, and this talented duo are doing an amazing bit to make their ideas come to life...and how! October is a lifestyle brand and a warehouse of talent based at the heartland of Indianess - Jaipur and bringing the same to the world with aplomb. What fascinated me the most about their products is the artistic and precise mix of durrie and leather, lending their products a very vintage, earthy yet contemporary feel. Being a voucher for products that live long and can be used in multiple ways, it just took a glance to fall in love with their work. October specializes in a wide range of travel bags, shopper bags, totes, tech cases, sling bags and wallets each of which can be completely customized to suit your needs. 
Ikat has always been one of my favourite prints and I was ecstatic to pick this lovely sling bag from their work-shop. To do justice to the beauty of the print and the modern structure of the bag, I decided to keep the outfit very minimal lending a soft contrast to the bag. Sunshine yellow, gold sandals and subtle coral earrings took it all to complete this look. Further, we conceptualized the shoot to include strong, architectural elements from the city with an aim to bring together the facets of tradition, evolution and modernity. And if you are wondering about the title to this post, well you will find your answer here..
