Most people (including us) do not really follow make up trends as dictated by any fashion event. We do what is most comfortable to us in our day to day lives. In India, kajal (black kohl) is the most common make up item if any, next to the Bindi (gotta digress here a little bit for our non-indian friends and readers, peeps! bindis are worn by both married and single women :) A stylish lady might wear mascara, eye liner and lipstick. But most other paraphernalia like blusher, foundation, concealer are only worn in air conditioned lives or special occassions. Thankfully, we in India happen to have lots of special occassions, we love celebrations of every kind, and we love to dress up :D

The make up trend for Spring and Summer 2013 is glowing fresh skin, nails are nude all the way (beige or flesh toned), freckles and beauty spots are on display, with pale neon or candy colours to create a pretty doll !! Antoni & Alison showed their smokey eyes in neon, Maria Grachvogel hints of blush and palest peach, PPQ candy lips, Moschino oasis green eyes, Erdem neon orange on inner lips!



This is the first time we are doing an accessories post. When we set out to cover London Fashion Week S/S 2013, we thought of this post as a single blog post. However when we collated our material, it was too much to put up in one post itself. Our friend Wikipedia says : " A fashion accessory is an item which is used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer's outfit. " God, we never realize how much we accessorize in our daily wear do we ? Sunglasses, hats, bangles, bracelets, jewellery, tie, bows, belts, watches and the list is endless. Take a look at a page from our LFW notebook, and you will understand why it is impossible to cover everything in one blog post :)




London Fashion Week is one of the Big Four (http://www.delhistyleblog.com/2012/09/fashion-week-decoded.html ) in the international fashion calender. It is as much known for its avant - garde cutting edge fashion presentations as its street style. Some of the most creatively dressed people hang around the central courtyard of Somerset House (home to London Fashion Week, ( http://www.somersethouse.org.uk/).

D was working as a volunteer/dresser for the Spring/Summer 2013 show held from 14th to 18th September 2012. In between work as a crew, she captured few shots at Somerset house, with her Iphone, S and C were thoroughly missed, as S had to leave London on work after the first day ( therefore excuse the poor quality of pics) ! However, we are looking forward to attending Autumn/Winter 2013 in February, but this time, as Delhi Style Blog :D. Half of the photo credits also goes to Sally Gray, Creative Designer (www.sallygraycreative.com/ ). Sally is from New Zealand, D's friend and batchmate from London College of Fashion ( this is a shout out to you Sally, hope you are enjoying Amsterdam :)

For some truly great professional shots, you might want to check this link (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151161162199851.471883.96845044850&type=1 )

So without much ado, here goes !! ( btw, all pics are the property of DSB, donot copy or download without permission please, you might ask us nicely for reuse though :)





Gotta start with a DSB official photo :p ... ( for the record, D doesnt like it, too bad :)
DSB went to London Fashion Week held from 14 to 18 September at Somerset House, London. Back home in Delhi, many of our friends and family saw the facebook updates and were curious to know what the show is all about. So DSB decided to explain Fashion Week in our own way. This post explains the Fashion Week calender around the world in layman's language, hope you find it relevant :)



Delhi has been experiencing great weather for the last few months thanks to the rainy season. In this part of the world we call it the Monsoons - the four month rainy season from June to September, which brings down the soaring temperatures of an Indian summer. For the positive thinking population (no we are not trying to be trite, but rain logged streets and other pedestrian miseries can be enjoyed by the negative peeps through the newspapers) , so to continue, for the happy peeps rainy days are a happy treat indeed !!

September 7th was Vogue's Fashion's Night Out (http://www.vogue.in/Fno ) at Emporio Mall, Delhi (http://web.dlfemporio.com/ ). We decided to attend and requested the company of two very good friends, for an evening of retail therapy, on the condition they allow us to style and shoot them for the blog. They happily agreed ( Disclaimer : we are not cheapskates, its just that professional models intimidate us, and D is camera shy, so !!) We had a super fun evening as you can see below !!

Hello People, this is our first Blog Post. It has taken forever for us to start this, but finally, after days of procrastination, with mental labour pains worser than anticipated, just like that, without much ado, here it is :)



The Story behind Us
( this is more for our happy memories than your curiosity level :P )



this is D


D was studying in London while on leave from work. By the time she came back , she decided she wanted to be a stylist and tried for an internship (without pay) with many experienced names in Delhi but no one gave a chance ! ("They" who shall not be named, thank you for refusing free labour, :D )
Then D thought about starting a blog ( best way to showcase your creativity without begging someone for a chance ). She asked her best friend Google and realised that you need a good writer ( duh! what is that? can we just write the way we talk ? ), a good researcher ( our BFF Google ), all those adjectives that scares a person from having fun ( disciplined, committed, devoted, persevering, patient, responsible yadda yadda ), and a great photographer ! Well D knew Google, talked a lot ( incessantly as some mean people say), hates adjectives (so defining!) and knows the most interesting photographer on her planet !!



                                                  this is S

S a shutterbug by choice and traveller by profession, soon discovered her love for photography before she could even afford a camera. Lucky to have walked the most famous streets around the world, S found her best companion in C (aka Canon 5D Mark 3). That marked the begining of a steaming love affair between S and C and since then there has been no looking back! Together they captured memories, moments, people and places. Life was good, it was just them and the beautiful world waiting to get captured by their eyes ........
