“These pics are of my dad and his friends around 1977-78. They are all Zeliangrong Naga boys in their late teens studying in Shillong.

My dad was a free spirit, an all rounder – local singer, martial artist, he had plenty of friends and roamed around everywhere. I was surprised to hear he turned up good grades haha!

Those were interesting days, he used to say. They listened to Grand Funk Railroad, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt etc.
Bell bottoms were all the rage with block heel shoes. They would be 3-4 inches tall!”

I found some amazing photos while digging through my friend’s old family albums. I’ll be sharing some of them on my blog over the next few weeks and I’d love you to contribute.

If you have the time and inclination, mail me your vintage photos on wearabout/at/gmail/dot/com with some info about the photograph(time and place + anything else of relevance). If you are on instagram use #wrbtvintage

Looking forward to your photos.

mizoram people fashion style delhi

What kind of fashion do you like and what shows did you watch at fashion week?
Van: I like a bit grungy type of outfits. I went to see just one show so I don’t know what I like this fashion week. Atsu was quite alright I guess but I didn’t see the show.
Sang: I love all kinds of style — boho, chic, feminine, goth, but I usually like dressing up in a simple, understated way. I love embroidery work. I’ve been a fan of Gauri and Nainika for a long time and I also love the concept of Pero by Aneeth Arora.

Do you have any fashion icons?
Van: The Kills. Pete Doherty.
Sang: No, not exactly. I used to love the model Kate Moss for her style but maybe not anymore.

What kind of music do you like and what are you currently listening to?
Van: Lots of Sia and MIA. I love MIA. She is so innovative with both fashion and music.
Sang: I love Mark Knopfler a lot and my all time favourite band is Dire Straits. Growing up with three elder brothers made me love all the 80s & 90s rock bands. Currently I’m listening to Ane Brun’s version of Halo on repeat.

Fashion week, Delhi. October 2014.
