Who thought so that our very own childhood cartoon character would be on clothes? But now clothes will have the iconic Disney characters. It’s a dream come true with Anouk, Myntra’s ethnic fashion brand who have come out with wearable stuff like palazzo pants, crop tops, kurtas & anarkalis in fun and vibrant colours. The collection is a fusion of both contemporary and traditional as I could see jackets with Mickey motifs & scarves with Mickey characters on them. I loved the special Mickey buttons on the kurtas.
To address the afternoon was the famous fashion designer Aki Narula. There was a contest in which the people present there took part & Aki Narula declared the winner depending on the creativity & the styling of the garments on live models. It was interesting to see the fusion cocktail of bright colors & Mickey on the garments. It was quite fun and looked stylish.
Commenting on the collection, Aki said, “Indian apparel has seen a great deal of experimentation over the past few years with contemporary motifs, asymmetrical cuts and free flowing designs finding their way into Indian wear representing the changing taste of Indian women. I am very inspired to see the interpretation of the iconic Mickey Mouse character on Indian wear. It gives me great pleasure to be unveiling this stylish range of ethnic wear which is sure to appeal to chic Indian woman of today.”
Aki Narula also shared various style tips with the bloggers & spoke about Mickey being used as a fresh, modern & contemporary approach in fashion diminishing the age bar that kids are the only Mickey Mouse lovers. One particular thing he said was that the golden Mickey motif just looked like a flower- so small & cute that he would love to dress Alia & Kangana in it. He also pointed out that Aishwarya Rai could dorn the maxi dress and look beautiful & young as always. He mentioned that longer the shape of the drape, slimmer the person looks & not to divide the body by the garment, keep adding length.
His favourite piece from the collection was the short sleeve tunic which was indeed bright, vibrant, young & cheerful. There were jumpsuits for the new age, symmetrical dresses, colourful jackets, & shirts set to take the clothes industry by storm. I loved the collection as the fabric used was very fine and soft to touch and that too priced between Rs 1099 – Rs 4999.
It was fun to be a part of the event & meeting the famous stylist Aki Narula. It was a stylish & glamourous day and the clothes looked dazzling, more appealing & wearable & of course Mickey added its unique charm on every garment. We also got gift hampers containing chocolates & the Mickey scarf as a remembrance to this special event. I was happy to be a part of the meet & would look forward to sporting Mickey on my garment especially on Indian style someday. Mickey you are still a favourite of many!!! Let’s celebrate the fusion garment segment of splashing colours & let the cute Mickey sparkle with all the shine & be ready to show the magic to the whole world, what say Mickey Mouse lovers?
