 Upon researching for Indian fashion designers and costume designers for my new project I have fallen in love with the detailing and combination of styles used in indo-western clothing. Designers like Ritu Kumar have high street lines aimed at international customers fusing traditional indian textile techniques with silhouettes and trends from Europe and America. Whilst searching for indian fabrics i came across a beautiful homemade sari in a charity shop and the top can be seen in the first few photos. I have chosen to pair the pink and green silk top with my matte leggings to further emphasise the clash between the two styles and to bring out the bright colour and machine work in the top. Furthermore I found this tunic/dress at a market stall in France for 5 euros and fell in love with its paisley print design and silk-feel fabric. Look out for brightly coloured fabrics and intricate designs as they will really add something to your wardrobe even if you only use it as a scarf or tie on your bag
