IndiGreen: Go Bollywood

Bollywood+Fashion+Eco-friendly now isn't that a good concoction. IndiGreen is a relatively new brand launched in India and is owned by Nidhi Singh and her partner Gaurav Gupta. This is one of the funkiest projects i have come across in a long time . 

What is it they do?

Indigreen is Hand-painted Art work on  tee's, dresses, bags jackets and belts.The Brand uses Bollywood as there source of inspiration I.E movie posters.They also have embellished works which is made by the women of SEWA(an NGO). They use Organic cotton so the brand is in tune with the go green mantra.Right now they have limited editions only but Nidhi claims that they never disappoint fans when they come with requests . Take a look at some samples...

There is something about yesteryears posters which immediately gets you hooked. This is a brown tunic with a fun embellished belt .

Now wouldn't this be so chic for an evening coffee or laid back session of chit-chatting with  friends after an evening movie maybe

I would totally wear this for an evening Karaoke.

Wouldn't this be apt for a laid back house party.

Extreme left is Nidhi Singh

This was the launch of IndiGreen in Melange (Bombay), where some of Nidhi's friends had a fun session of trails with the indie green clothes .The collection in Bangalore is available at Kimaya UB City.

If its too hot outside to go shop or your simply lazy ? Indie green has a solution they have an online store as well for more do check there website where you can place orders as well  IndiGreen

DIY Belt

This Belt was one of the first things i ever made.Also its the easiest.

Step 1

Any mesh-ISH kind of material will do. Stitch the sides ,so that it looks like a ribbon with both ends open.

Step 2:

Knot at regular intervals with a button inside ( So it wont roll up)

Step 3

Buy a broach or even better if you could make it yourself and knot it up somewhere along the length
And done!!

DIY Knee length Stockings

I have always loved the knee length socks trend but they  can never really be worn here ,since the weather  in Bangalore never gets very hot neither does it get very cold . So what to do when you want to embrace a style with out getting baked?
Here's what i did , Cut a pair of stockings just above the knee and embroidered tiny dots on them  , Then stitched the elastic to hold them in place , to cover the thick ugly elastic, bought some expandable lace and sewed  it on top . Had to be extremely careful while sewing it since i did not want the stockings to shred.
