About Style.. A Pastiche!
'A Pastiche' in Italian, is a work of art that has been inspired by other artists, the French and Italian artists later on named Collage as a 'Pastiche'. So, Style to me is a Pastiche, an artful collage influenced by all things around you including your likes, your interpretation of all the fashion trends and your persona. Although, as a blogger I'm constantly exploring different styles; I have always found solace in the "Neo-Ethnic or Indian Moderne" trend.
