street fashion bangaloreWhat kind of music do you like and what are you currently listening to? My teenage band was The Fugees and my band crush was Take That. Right now it’s 22 by Taylor Swift on repeat.

What did you want to become as a kid? Popstar or a nurse. Actually when I was 5, at school, they asked us to draw who we wanted to be and I drew a nurse.

What’s your favourite place in Bangalore? Shopping malls and Center of Internet & Society.

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.

Yeah, one last. Do you have any tips for self improvement? Smile more.

photo curation @ SouthAsia.Art

June 4, 2019

View this post on Instagram

Our next guest curator Manou is a photoblogger and runs the page @wearaboutblog. He has been traveling in and around India last 5 years. Manou's approach to photography is open eyed, direct and undiscriminating – like a child's view of the world. There is an impulse prompted by the fascination of seeing, embodied in the magnetism of his 'street-style' portraits and travel vignettes. Thematically his photographs are not necessarily grand in scale, they are intimate and based in subjective choice or poetics of reach. Amidst the rapid internationalization and industrialization of fashion and photography, his photographs help us canvas situated forms of self-work and self-dressing, they make us ask ourselves what it means to be dressed, styled and fashioned today in the south asian subcontinent. Manou's work previously has been featured in the New Yorker, V&A London, Museum at FIT New York, Die Zeit Magazin, VOGUE ELLE GQ Wallpaper* During his week on @southasia.art he will be sharing a bit of his process, and maybe some thoughts and excerpts from his journal. Most photos are straightforward and simple but they are still open to interpretation. Would like it to be interactive. If anyone has any thoughts or questions or wants to see more of something, please feel to write in comments or message directly.

What makes you dance?
Definitely something with a funky bassline. I love a good beat and bassline.

What makes you happy?
Going out for a meal(I love pork and seafood), cooking for close friends and family, being able to create art with friends, cuddles, starry sky, sun bathing, and generally beach/hills chilling in the sun.

What’s the best and worst thing about where you are?
Best – having old friends and family in the same city as me; I love that there’s so many things to do in the city.
Worst – the filth in the air and the streets, also how rude & aggressive people can be here.

What kind of change would you like to see in the world)?
It would be great to see people being more empathetic to each other and nature. Less buildings, less trash, less cars. Decisions from higher up being made for good, not for greed.

How would you describe yourself?
Vulnerable. And gutsy.

List of things you love.
History. Hot beverages. Jasmine fragrance. Bathing in the dark. The smell of burning wood. Being on a boat. Passionate, uninhibited sex. Long travel hours in buses/trains. Photographing people. Cooking for special ones.

What do you do in your free time?
I’m an avid reader. I may be obsessed with cleaning, I find the whole process of household chores very therapeutic.

Strangest thing someone has ever told you.
‘I love you’ said in the tone of ‘I give up’.

How would you describe your style?
My style usually consists of Betty Draper prints and graphic tees. Today’s outfit has a very diner girl vibe.

What’s your work at Grazia like?
It consists of writing about fashion in an academic and business sense. I love drawing parallels between daily life and consumer behaviour, finding out why people subconsciously dress the way they do and their mental and emotional processes behind it. I also write about lesser known designers and micro trends.

Which Indian designers are you following at the moment?
I love untitled co, urvashi kaur, eka, yavi, and 11:11.

What inspires you about Bombay?
I think the shutter speed energy of the city is curious because it can be absolutely overwhelming but also uplifting sometimes.

What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned so far?
Sometimes you really have to let go.

What’s your most used emoji?
😂

What’s currently keeping you occupied?

How would you describe your style? I don’t know if my style has a specific name or tag. Sometimes I’m glam sometimes I dress like a sack of potatoes but I wear whatever makes me happy.

> Is there anybody who inspires your style?
I really like Erika Bowes, Alyssa Lau, the 90’s Drew Barrymore, Rachel Nguyen from thatschic, and Kiko Mizuhara.

> How would you describe the way you are dressed in the photos?
> Something that’s easy to run around in and sweat but still look cute.

Street Style Aizawl for ELLE India

June 9, 2018

“Fact: the needle on the Indian street style compass points duly North-East. Always ahead of the curve and — in many cases — defying it, the citizens of the Seven Sisters have a way of establishing their superiority in the fashion food chain that’s frustratingly effortless.”

“I love singing Caity Peters’ Jealous while driving and Pink is my current favourite.

I find happiness in music and expressing myself through music and fashion. I am drawn to anything vintage. I value kindness. I love rain, writing songs, and our mother earth. “
