I remember always wanting to be in a band.

How would you describe your style?
Kind of like a Woodstock attendee. I also like layers.

Maverick from Top Gun and Jimi Hendrix.

A song you’re currently listening to on repeat.
Tora – Eat The Sun

Gursi | fashion week

October 17, 2015

street style fashion week delhi

Tell me something about yourself?  I am Gursi, a designer, perpetually looking out for bigger meanings in life.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? As a kid I always wanted to do and try different things, I realised way too early that the only thing that’s constant is change.

How would you describe your style? My style is mostly monochromatic, simple, and boxy.

What are you wearing? I am wearing a long oversize white shirt with grey melange paneling and a white low crotch pants – all lovebirds.

Do you have any pop culture figures that you look up to? I like the androgyny and madness of Miranda July and Thom Yorke.

How did you get interested in fashion?  I was always interested in design. I have been doing graphics, spaces, and illustrations, and while doing all that I always had an opinion about fashion. But I got more into it after meeting Amrita while she was curating western vintage. Of course traveling and east London inspired us to do more.

What are you currently listening to? Tropic of Cancer – The One Left

Currently reading? Milan Kundera’s Ignorance

A phrase you can’t avoid. It’s all a game!

P: No.
A: None, really. Maybe I lean towards what K-pop artistes wear.

What’s the best part about your life in Dimapur?

P: I’m listening to a lot of K-pop lately like Big Bang, 2ne1. Bits of Tori kelly and Leroy Sanchez.

What was your last weekend like?
P: I don’t remember much. My head hurts thinking about it.
A: Work filled. Decorated a Ninja themed party and worked on a magazine design till 3 am.

What places do you recommend to hang at in Dimapur?
P: Upstairs for drinks & Tom Yum Goong for food- the chicken wings & liver chilly is amazing.
A: There’s not much to do but after dark – Upstairs and Hooligans.
