street style delhi ladakh

Tell me something about yourself.
I’m from Ladakh. I am obsessed with wearing all white. My favourite film is Ghibli’s Kaguya Hime no monogatari. Stereophonics’ Maybe Tomorrow is my morning song. I am fluent in Japanese. My name means one angel in Ladakhi, it was given to me by my parents, and Rigzin Wangmo was given to me by a head monk. I have a pet rabbit who acts like a pup.

What’s the best thing about Ladakh?
It’s so quiet at night that you can hear the leaves move and the sound of water stream from my room.

Tell me more about the rabbit.
He’s called Tashi. He has a balcony full of plants all to himself. We’ve made toys out of cardboard boxes for him to play with. I’m also getting a tunnel made for him.

You know you can train them and apparently you can also teach them to play hide and seek.

street fashion india fashion week

What do you do and where are you from?
Currently pursuing a bachelors degree in mass communication. I am from Nagaland.

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.

Jeans and sweatshirt from H&M, oversized t-shirt I got stitched, and supra shoes.

Do you have any fashion icons?
Maverick from Top Gun and Jimi Hendrix.

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

Favorite book
Invisible Monsters

What phrase do you use the most?
“You get it?” Because I’m always on lookout for validation and reassurance.

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!

Calcutta.

I work as a designer and a stylist.

street style mumbai india

Growing up in Pakistan and attending a little boarding school hidden in the foothills of the Himalayas, I started off a far cry from the world of fashion and design though I loved sketching, painting, and shopping for fabric at the night bazaars. With the lights ablaze on all the sparkling bangles, I would sit enchanted as roll after roll of embroidered chiffons, silks, and cottons would be unfurled in front of us to choose fabrics for new salwar kameezes. 

When I was about 12, a family friend asked me if there was anything she could bring back from a visit to the UK and for some reason I asked for a fashion magazine. She brought me back a copy of Vogue and although she had ripped out all the pages with nudity, it was the most intriguing thing I had ever seen.”

recent stuff & plans | August

August 24, 2013

There is an Indian Street Style post on BuzzFeed made of my photos(mostly). Take a look.

Jonathan Longuet, a French artist, is making life size paintings of my photographs for an exhibition in Delhi. A rough draft.

Some of my photos were part of a street photography exhibit at Artscape, Baltimore.

Wearabout was on Tasveer Journal sometime ago.

I have an 8 page street style story in GQ India this month.

I have to interrupt my Northeast updates for now. They will have to wait. I was too slow miscalculated my blogging speed. WIll get on with it again in September.

Fashion week in Bombay started yesterday. Will be blogging from there.

Contemplating a giveaway. Would anyone be interested in old looking clothes & books?

Looking forward to leaving Bombay again in October & travel for maybe 6 months. My lease gets over; which is a great thing. The best. Looking at Dharamsala, Calcutta, & Sikkim. Maybe down south.

Also, I’m looking for someone to help me organize all my images and edit a lot of text. You get paid but it’s not much money. If you’re interested, write to me at wearabout at gmail
