Pearl Academy is the harbinger of fashion revolution with a futuristic outlook. The finale of FDCI Amazon India Fashion Week, 2018, became more exuberant with the creations of graduating students of Pearl Academy under the theme of ‘Future of Fashion’, presenting it as a day long ‘Pearl Academy Portfolio 2018′ fashion show series. They put up a set of 5 impressive shows. We enjoyed Show 1 which had highly appealing themes such as Indie – Fused, Azure Fantasy, Soul Fit, Textile Assemblage, Neutral Block, Lavender Mint, Blocks Divided, Prarie Tangerine, Femme Regale, Noir League, L’ Blanche, Dusk Strut and Bijoux by Jewellery Design students of Pearl Academy, Jaipur. Show 2 had an interesting range of themes and concepts such as, Summer Kaleidoscope, Welsh Summer, Yuppy Strut, Sci-Fi Street, Turmeric Tales, Vandalists, Aqua-Rouge, Rusted, Occult Force, Print & Patch and Tourmaline among others. The final year students of Fashion styling and Image Design showcased a highly thought out collection that combined the need for fashion sustainability with preservation of traditional Indian craft without compromising with the ever advancing fashion trends. The students are sensitive to both fashion culture and the power of fashion as a driver of social change. They conceptualized ‘Fashion as a voice for Social Activism’ by pairing it up with an elegant ‘Black Swan’ ballet performance. The young designers showed their prowess by creating exquisite costumes to convey body-positivity movements and gender aesthetics through it. Rajul Goldar brought our attention to environment-friendly fabrics that do not involve shedding of trees. He is spearheading a movement to bring about the face of forests on ramp along with promoting the use of non-cellulosic fabrics. The collection by Pallavi Yadav had a story of deconstructing of the garment and decorating it with zero-water embellishments. A luxrious collection – Tawaif – drew …

I believe, that your personal style doesn’t just reflect on the clothing you wear. Personal style is very much defined by how you decorate your personal space as well. Whether you like to add the vibrancy of kitsch to your furniture, or like keeping the décor gold-luxe, it’s all about defining what aesthetics please your taste. Among all the elements of a room, ceiling fans play a pivotal role given their central position on top. AEROSTORM by Orient Electric is the perfect blend of style and modern technology as it meets both my creative pre-conditions and also the need for a powerful yet quiet ceiling fan. The creators of AeroStorm have truly gone out of the way to give us an enchanting fan whose blades are inspired from modern Aircrafts! Yes, the one of a kind winglet technology of these fans turns into the wings of aircrafts. This facilitates higher air thrust spanning as much as 300 CMM (Cubic metres per minute) unlike other fans which focus on a small area below. It gets embarrassing when you have guests over and the fans make noise disrupting all the merriment. Even when it is time for some leisure reading, noisy fans play spoilsport. I can now breathe a sigh of relief as Aeroquiet has brought an innovative solution to this problem. The Advanced 3D aerodynamic profiled blade design let the fan work without any noise. While the 18 Pole heavy Motor with double ball ensures that the fan is long lasting. Till now the role of fans in improving the décor of a room has been slightly under-rated. But the Aeroseries range of fans is going to make people stop and take notice of what a fan is capable of doing. These fans can be an essential addition to the interior …
