“Beyond the catwalk, the stylishness of ordinary people in everyday clothes is captured by the discerning eye of the photographer Manou. Taking images across India, his work shows the continued use of hand-made textiles in a regionally and socially diverse society. A selection of photographs taken from Manou’s streetstyle blog, Wearabout, closes the exhibition with a final reflection on the pervasive, and persistent, nature of hand-made Indian textiles.” – V&A Museum / Read more.

How would you describe your style? Right now I am doing normcore. Are you writing that? Actually I just found out that I was doing normcore. Any more questions? It’s a narcissist’s dream.
