Indian fashion industry remembers fashion designer Pierre Cardin

Published

on

December: Pierre Cardin, a well-known, self-made and a legendary Italian-French designer died on Tuesday that is December 29 at the age of 98. The Indian fashion community remembers the work, and contributions of the empowered person who gave many radical changes to the fashion industry and was a thought leader. Fashion designer Pierre Cardin was among a few international designers who brought their clothing lines to India where he was already a popular name in the 1980s and 1990s.

Rina Dhaka, another known designer expressed his sadness over the demise of a worldwide legend. He said that when she herself started reading fashion magazines as a young girl in the 1980-90s, Cardin was one global name in the industry that she ever knew. FDCI Chairman Sunil Sethi also echoed similar views as he also shared fond moments with Cardin during the show in Delhi’s Hauz Khas Village in 1994.

Dhaka further quoted to PTI, “He became renowned down to the fact that ‘I own a Pierre Cardin pen in India or wherever I could be’. He was in many ways a great example of how we as designers can adapt to changing times and still be able to continue a brand over so many decades.” Veteran actor-host Simi Garewal said Cardin was always in the “forefront in designing”. Garewal claimed to PTI, “I was dressed in a sari. In French, he kept saying I looked beautiful during the photo shoot.”

Veteran designer Tarun Tahiliani said, “That’s how I ended up seeing my first ever fashion show of any consequence. And I sketched for a day and night. I then knew this is what I wanted to do.”

The death of fashion designer Pierre Cardin was announced yesterday as he was admitted in a hospital in Neuilly, west of Paris. However, the cause of death of the veteran is not yet out.

Beautify your Winter look with these accessories| Trends for Winter fashion

Published

Winter fashion, 22 January: Stepping out of the house when the temperature drops, that too in style, turns out to be one hell of a difficult task in winters. Beating the chilling winters requires something more than just inner wears and furred coats, you would require additional accessories to keep you both warm and stylish.

With winters breaking all records this time, girls might be suffering as they have to carry out proper clothing and fashion both on-point simultaneously, doing what is next-level strenuous. We cannot even think of removing the bundle of cloth layers the winters are making us wear then why not dress with them on? Indeed, the winter fashion struggle is real but we can make it happen if we want to show off our fashionable outfits in style and stay frost-free.

Check out some of our recommendations below:

Chokers

Classy yet elegant, chokers magnify your look no matter if you wear it in any weather. Pair your cloth or ready-made chokers with your formal look, long coats, or front open leather jackets. Surprise your mates with this look and pull-off the winter fashion in style.

Silver oxidised earrings

There’s no outfit an earring cannot beautify! Literally, every girl misses wearing earrings especially in winters but did no one tell you that your plain winter coat required the charm in form of a silver lining? Yes, it does. Use your silver oxidised earrings with your plain winter outfits, these make you look simple and adorable.

Stoles and scarfs

Seems like no one mentioned about this one too! Scarfs are responsible for making you look gorgeous and warm like nothing else. Personally, I would suggest you buy colourful boho scarfs, these would not only add charm to your winter look but would make you feel good about yourself. Also, scarfs are the best way to protect your neck and chest from the direct chilling wind.

Boots

Heeled ones or flat, it is your call but boots keep you all warm, cosy and classy, of course. Furred boots help keep the feet warm and protected from frost. Your feet are the coldest body part and the one who faces challenges in getting proper warmth. Amid the struggle, your regular shoes do not contribute much in providing them with the proper warmth and fashion look. However,, here is where the long boots play a vital role.

Furred jackets

Furred jackets make you feel cosy, sweet and warm altogether. Furred jackets are one way to keep yourself protected from the extreme cold weather and also pull off your winter look in style. Therefore, furred jackets are girl’s favourite and preferred all over.

Cosy pom beanies or hats for winter fashion, your choice

Depending upon your choice, protect your ears and head area with a beanie. Dress with a headcover.
