Folk in Vogue-Asian Paints

Hi peeps. Yes- I'm finally telling you guys everything. "Folk in Vogue" has been flooding your home page and I'm not sorry. This is a very innovative initiative brought to us by Asian Paints available in their Colour store.

Let me get this straight- I know I've never indulged in commercial blog posts, so when I do, believe me, I am all for it. Being in NIFT amidst creative minds, our tastes always inclines to a traditional masala twist if not fully dedicated to it. The reason behind this is because every form of art and creative activity has its roots in the folk and culture of our society. Today Asian Paints is letting our folk paintings adorn the walls of our urban homes. Take that for a change! The idea is to support our karigaars with work worth spending time on in the present times.

The event held on 30th March 2016 invited 20 most influential women here in Delhi who have been inspiring the lives of many everyday with their immense love and passion for everything artsy. You can watch the clips of these women in the link HERE where they have shared their words towards this initiative. I am truly blessed to have been invited to sit among them and soak in all the positive energy these ladies radiated.

 We got to spend time with three artisans whose expertise lied in Gondh, Madhubani and Patachitra. We received personalized art done by them as a part of the gift package received.

  Annnnnd finally, my ootd! I got my own fusion of tribes going on in a single frame. I made sure I dressed for the event with the same vibe of the whole purpose of the gathering.

I wore my own ITP waistcoat over this summery prairie dress. The waistcoat has a Mizo Puanropui border. I accessorized it with this silver pahari jewelry and Rajasthani bag.
