    Phantasmogoria

    Phantasmagoria: ¬†fantazm…ôňąg…Ēňźr…™…ô,-ňąg…ír…™…ô :¬†a sequence of real or imaginary images like that seen in a dream.¬†Shahpurjat offers numerous moments to experience the same with its splash of art in every nook and corner of the urban village. To compliment these colours I decided to go ahead with a monochromatic outfit and break the myth : Black is not for the summer.¬†I wore printed pajama pants (absolutely love this style) to create a casual day look which works well in the Delhi heat. The art behind me is by Mattia Lullini and its absolutely fabulous. To add some colour to the outfit, I wore a ¬†pastels statement necklace from Faballey¬†that instantly lifted…

Delhi Haat is a space where one can pass time for hours without really doing anything concretely. It opened as an aircraft bazaar and food plaza ¬†run by Delhi tourism and transportation development corporation…
