Living in the Moment // PART 1
“You bring your own weather to the picnic.”
Recently, I had the privilege of associating with the wonderful designer and curator, Dipti Mrinalini. Her brand is all about customising the perfect silhouette, be it for a working girl, or someone who is aiming for a freshly driven summer/spring wardrobe. The fabrics she houses are all natural. The fabric is soft, sumptuous and breathable – a key feature of handwoven fabrics made from natural fibres.
The fabrics have been sourced from areas around Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu.
Referring back to the quote at the top of this post – you are responsible for what you bring to the table. And you don’t need a massive wardrobe to enable you to “bring your own weather to the picnic”. These outfits have made me realise that you can adapt any number of styles and looks with just 2-3 pairs of clothing.
Wearing Dipti Mrinalini has always made me feel a sense of happiness and confidence. Every ensemble you adorn is made so well to fit your needs.
The outfits I’m wearing currently in the blog post are two of my absolute favourites from the collections. This collection was made for the purpose of being multi-functional and for all seasons.
The prints on the fabric are geometric elements, checks and stripes.
The Striped Dress that I’m wearing is a perfect silhouette for someone looking for some flare and drama. It is structured, and yet dramatic. Dipti has played with the bias-rendering stripes at a 45 degree angle, which gives a little more volume and an element of playfulness. This dress, as you can see, is extremely efficient in many ways. It can be styled in more than one way: I’ve done Day Time vs Night Time styling with this dress. And it was so comfortable to come up with these two very versatile looks, just by adding a different pair of shoes, or a different handbag.
The other outfit that you see me adorn is this beautiful skirt and crop top. You will see checks, but with an overlay of translucent fabric.
You could try different combinations by changing the crop top to a T-shirt, or wear it with a formal button down skirt, or pants. Or wear it to a picnic, as I have in this post. You can definitely wear it to a party, or a formal office dinner. The idea is to do more with less.
The whole purpose of styling these outfits with whatever the collection has, is to tell the world that minimal fashion exists, and we can make it as fancy as we want it to be.
Like the quote above, the point is to do more with less. We in the fashion industry always get overwhelmed with choice. This is a refreshingly different take!
We had a majestic group to work on this association with us! All girls, all the way. Who run the world? Girls.
