Who would have ever thought that an old, discarded quilt or table cloth can be turned into a trendy jacket or a shirt? Meet Harsh Agarwal, a 26-year-old economics graduate from Symbiosis School of Liberal Arts, who is making it big in fashion without any formal training in designing, and using this concept of mending and repairing old textiles sourced from his mother and grandmother into a wearable piece of art. Once we glance through the designer's work on his Instagram, we see a lot of such wonderful creations that have been created from various vintage textiles. A bed sheet set, hand-embroidered by the designer's mother in 1985, has been now turned into a co-ord set that is transeasonal and features a relaxed silhouette. "The whole idea came about very coincidentally. I have always been into making clothes, appreciating and sourcing textiles. This was something I was involved in from way back.

Home Fashion Trends Fashion Trends Devika By Devika Tripathi | on July 26, 2018 The first day of the India Couture Week 2018 proved to us that regal looks matter in the Indian bridal market. Yes, the two prominent designers Tarun Tahiliani and Anju Modi both flirted with the blue-blooded inspiration. Their inspirations were different but the ideas they projected had to do a lot with royal-fueled fashion. While Tahiliani's collection celebrated Indian regal heritage, Modi's, on the other hand, drew inspiration from the Victorian era. Barring a few outfits, Tahiliani's collection, 'In Elysium' was more structural and crisp. His sartorial cuts on the ensembles were definitely sharper.
