Nothing like a little bit of food, fun and fashion on Friday the 13th huh? Marie Claire along with Mango held a Fashion Class where they introduced some of the new trends and how-to-style-yourself. They invited fashion students from some of Mumbai’s top fashion schools (including mine, Raffles Design International) and even gave them a pop quiz, which sadly they didn’t do very well at! We learned about red carpet dressing from Poorna Jagannathan’s stylist Chandni Bahri and Nidhi Jacob showed us the best way to dress for your body type. A special “teacher” gave us working girls some tips, keep reading to find out who she is.
Nishka Lulla who, just like me, loves her bright colours styled two girls and showed us how to take looks from day to night. It’s so important as a working girl who lives in the big city to be able to do this, most of us don’t have time or the luxury to get home and change for each event in the day! Nishka says layering and accessorizing is key to being able to switch up your look.
What really got all the kids going was the 5 min Fashion dash. They had 5 mins to style and wear an outfit that had to be below 5000rs. The winner would get a 5000rs Mango voucher. It was a mad dash to the dressing room, unfortunately some of them were over budget but one lucky girl got it right and won herself some Mango goodies!
