The fashion week has now kicked in with designers showcasing their spring-summer collections to the world. Much like every other year, 2019 has also seen bizarre trends that ought not to leave the ramp!

If minimalism is your fashion mantra, then this is going to be a roller coaster ride for you. Read on !!

Birds Of A Feather

Only if feathers were restricted to the faux feather coats or just an intricate detail to long flowy gowns or pretty dresses…  From bridal fascinators, to head bands, hair pins, ear rings, slippers to feather eye brows and even lingerie, feathers have flown far too far and is now bordering the bizarre!

Somethings Are Fishy

Fishnets are the favourites of the fashion industry. The hosiery that was meant to accentuate the lower body and used as stockings, tights are now all over the place! Fishnet body-con dresses have hit the runway and even made their way into the closets of the fashion divas. Would you come out in the scorching summer heat in your netted clothing just to grab an ice-cream?
