This topic has got to be one of my favourites to talk about as I like to believe, fusion styling is my forte.
Since long, I have realized, if I am going to spend on expensive eastern pieces, I have to make sure to utilize them to their fullest. I personally think, western clothing gets more wear out of them as this is what we use in our daily lives. Hence, I decided to start thinking more about utility before buying designer pieces from Pakistani/Indian fashion designers. Nonetheless, its not that hard anymore as they themselves create many fusion pieces. However, giving it more of a thought on how many possible ways can a particular piece can be worn helps create the mix. To think about it, trends showcased in eastern country runways have been the same as those of the western. Weather the trend is to wear kimonos, ruffles, fringes or any other, its similar all around the world with ethnic differences. I would say, start thinking about some of the funky pieces we find in our daily shopping stores here as well; we may think its not worthy to spend on it as it may only be worn to a single dinner party, but what about wearing it with an eastern clothing piece of yours thats been hanging in your closet forever?
Here, I am pairing my frill trousers from Zara with a tunic from Sania Maskatiya. I have worn this blue tunic before with a simple silk trouser and at the same time I have worn these black trousers with a simple white tee. At the end of the day, you have to keep an eye out for trends, inspire yourself and you will learn to mix and match in no time.
Its time to take out those those ‘occasion only clothes’ and give them a twist. Make sure to visit the fusion section of my blog for more inspiration.
