Monday Muse: Rosalind Jana


If you guys have been keeping an eye out for the Next Gen talent of writers from the UK who are making a wave in the fashion arena, you are sure to have had come across Rosalind Jana.

For all those of you  kindly need a subtle nudge, and an introduction to this young woman of powerful thoughts with an excellent ability to convert those into words, I hereby present you with Rosalind Jana, writer and fashion Blogger.Rosalind writes on her blog where she styles stunning shoots of herself and others too. This teamed with her expressing writing makes you want to spend more time scrolling across each article,which can sometimes lead you into trouble,since it is so addictive that you almost forget your own deadlines.

All of 17, Rosalind won the Vogue Talent Contest 2011 last year, has been clicked by street style photographers all around the world at the London Fashion Week. Previous Vogue Talent Winners include Harriet Quick, Leisa Barnett,Stephen Doig all have left a mark for themselves in the Fashion Journalism space.

So, in case you are not following her blog already, this is the time to track Rosalind’s journey as a writer and blogger.

Her style is as described by Because London very Pre-Raphaelite, which I somewhat agree, as you can see traced of that subtle rustic beauty coming through her Long hair,the dreamy eyes, and now that I am saying that I can actually imagine her as a modern-day Ophelia in the famous Sir John Everett Millais painting.

I will let you be the best judge of my imagination.


Also a subtle reminder for all you guys who would like to attend the London Bloggers Meet November 2012, Please leave a comment with your email so that I can send you a mail.

London Street Style: Orange Cozy Knit


With the Winter officially setting and rumours of a mild snowfall too, I was more than tempted to snuggle in my duvet and not venture out at all today!

The temperature is hitting the lower end single digits (Read as 0 degrees) which gives us a chance to get our fur coats,scarves,gloves and everything else possibly spelling out “WARMTH” out! Thus explains me going through My London Street Style photos folder to pull out some “Comfort” images!

Considering Halloween is around the corner,and Tangerine has been the colour of the year,all the pumpkins and warm colours made me choose this picture from the London Fashion Week,when I was out and about clicking Street Style images.

This man actually reminds me of one of my very good friend back in India, Mohit Rai, who is a freelance stylist, and I can so imagine him strutting this off with absolute swan like grace!I would love to shoot a few images of him in a cozy knit!


Orange is one of the best colours to invest in this Fall Winter, for outerwear, Please see my trending board here for more inspiration.

The Christian Dior New Look : Marion Cotillard

I have thought many a time to feature Marion Cotillard on my Monday Muse for a vintage and retro looks made classic with elegance and subtle glamour.


Her french style is alluring and very hard to nail down as she is quite experimental.


However this is a quick one to share with you all the latest video of the Lady Dior web documentary series La Métamorphose, and how secrets are revealed about the BAR SUIT and the very essential point of history THE NEW LOOK.


The feminism is oozing out with Marion wearing some of the original creations of Christian Dior himself.



What do you think of this video?

Statutory Warning: Colour Explosion! Italy-born Elisa Nalin is no new to the fashion Industry,with a straight track record of graduating from Instituto Europeo del Design (IED),and securing a job at Costume National and eventually the director at Samsonite’s Shoe Line, this fashionista is a self-proclaimed SHOE ADDICT! (Which one of us is not??). Leaving Italy behind, and taking to Paris as the new home, Elisa started her styling career and soon had a great portfolio with Dazed & Confused,i-D and Vogue Nippon and eventually for brands and department stores like Le Bonmarchéand Benetton… Her Staple:

While sourcing images, I just realised Elisa has a great knack of teaming wardrobe basics in a certain colour co-ordinated style,thus curated these images in a certain pattern to show my flow of thoughts.

See You Next Season: Garance Doré

Garance Doré is by far one of my most favorite, instant smile booster,quick chatter, feel good blogger!

I am absolutely in Love with her “Pardon My French” series in partnership with which is her conversations with people in the fashion industry like Guillaume Henry of CarvenCarol and Humberto of Kenzo,Tabitha Simmons apart from casual chats with stylists and editors.

The finale of the “Pardon My French” series is a visual diary/montage of Paris Fashion Week and an insight into the world through Garance’s eyes (or lens)! It cracked me up and made me love her even more.

Covering bits and bobs of her borrowing clothes from her sartorial partner Scott (Schuman), to running for the short Louis Vuitton Show to dancing in the rain and traces of the after party, this last episode is a great way to wrap up the season.

P.s: My Monday Muse makes a quick appearance in this video, any guesses?? To be continued…

Till that time enjoy the video..
