They take you back to your roots, they connect you with your own culture, they are made with love and passion, they are crafted with care, they are exclusive, they are Handmade in India. A story that is completely in sync with times, where everything INDIAN is of much more value and prominence, Colossal closet is proudly holding hands with a unique online marketplace called HANDTRIBE in their endeavor. Read on to find out why.
I have been in this industry for 3 years now. I’ve seen more downs than ups and when finally things are looking up, there is such an amazing sense of well being that it has managed to drown every struggle that brought me here. Its now that I feel how important having a voice is, rather, sticking to it is. You can’t keep changing your formats to please everyone. You have to keep working till the right people who find your format pleasant and worthwhile find YOU. EBONY TWIST at HANDTRIBE and me found each other mutually appeasing as they have a sense of aesthetics that’s pretty much in sync with mine. They have some rather exclusive brands and local artists on board selling with them, propagating what’s best made with hands and promoting a tribe of talent that needs to get its due.
Indian fashion and choices are transitioning back to their roots and that’s why online marketplaces like Handtribe stand out and deliver what our mind wants right now. We want the best of Indian and western sensibilities. We want our kurtis and we want our mini skirts. We want some quirky accessories and we want some demure artifacts. They have mindfully curated slow and fast fashion, sustainable fashion and local brands from across the land and brought it under one umbrella.
Here are the two looks I created using Handtribe Fashion-
LOOK 1- SULTRY SEDUCTRESS
Every woman is a diva who has the power to rule this planet. The moment she unleashes the seductress in her, the hardest of the nuts get cracked open like its child’s play. This off shoulder teal gown from HandTribe gave me the DIVA vibe and it fits like a dream. Sensuous, smokey, elegant and yet holding her own ground is what this look is about. Get this look for days when you want all eyes on you.
LOOK 2- FLORAL FUSION
An element of rugged meets whimsy in this corset and floral skirt combo. With the temperatures soaring high, skirts become summer essentials that need due styling for different occasions. This is a fusion look with elements of Rugged, floral, girly, boho and even ethnic in the right proportions. This look is for that confident girl who isn’t afraid to mix and match.
I’d like to finish off by re-enforcing just one thing, follow your heart, the mind will fall in place sooner than later.
