While every industry has its ups and downs, fashion is the only industry that is up even when it’s down. Designers don’t stop designing, people won’t stop wearing clothes, the idea of looking new will not stop reocurring our minds. Even if an individual is not directly related to this industry, the curiosity of the vast glamourous art world bedazzles everyone. Reading real life stories of how certain labels became a global superpower or what a designer’s journey has been like or how your dream bag is made, is the most satisfying dream come true. For those who live for fashion probably do understand the rewarding feeling one experiences when hearing it from the horse’s mouth. It’s emotional and magical at the same time.

10 ways to sound more classy
10 ways to sound more classy

Stop saying ‘Dear or Madam’ - Dear is not even endearing, it’s just acceptable to address someone in an email. It sounds worse coming from the younger generation than older aunties because when aunties say dear it’s not as bad. But the worst is when a young man sends a message ‘Hi dear, kya haal chaal?’. Never spoke to him again. What disgusts me the most is when, people who are not working under me call me madam. And that also when their pronunciation emphasises the ‘d’ and elongates the last ‘m’. “Aur madam (madddhummm), you tho don’t have time only…looking like a model shodel n all these days.” Yuck.
