Fashion is something which brings the best in you and definitely has a language of expression. We all love to look good and have a change in life to make it look interesting, so it is important to always try and be the creatively different one who stands apart from all. I personally don’t experiment much in my fashion apart from wearing smart casuals, however on and off i like to be dressy and quirky too depending on the occasions that i encounter in my day to day life. My appreciation goes down for those people who actually have the passion for making and wearing stunning clothes,as i believe they put in lot of effort with their talent to show everyone a direction of trend every single day.

Recently in Kolkata, Friday February 23/02/2018 INIFD Lindsay Street organised its Annual Graduating Fashion Show, Tomorrow Makers 2018 at Rang Durbaar, Swabhumi displaying their best collection in fashion and textiles.
