  • Witness to victory

    Collective memories are of course rich anthologies of history, but in it, get lost many individual voices. With the passage of time, we are losing many of the people who were witness to the struggle for independence. Here, we bring you some testimonials of general citizens, of varying ages, describing what they remember of the very first Victory Day, and the lead up to it.

  • Jeans and denim: evergreen picks

    There are limits to how much one can stretch a piece of jeans. Thankfully, the same does not hold true for how much one can push it up the fashion barometer. A piece of cotton denim, as far as styling goes, is timeless and as relevant today as it was...mmm...always!

  • Timeless

    For the past few years, brides have chosen bejewelled pieces as their style statements. While they still reign supreme, there is a slow trend moving back to good old gold, in their myriad forms and hues even.

  • The Second Act

    While it is possible to buy four to five different saris, just for the sake of it, there are reasons to put some good thought into your purchases. Remember, the post weddings’ Second Act is where you once again emerge as a couple, and there needs to be coordination between you two.

  • The Bride’s Sidekick

    This a glorious time, when the fabulously well-heeled fashionistas of Dhaka city turn out in their festive best, and sprinkle their heady stardust wherever they go.

  • LEGENDS OF THE SHERWANI

    The sherwani is a classic. The evolution has been so dramatic that it is now irrelevant to search for its roots to claim it as one of our own. A sharp-cut piece is as fashionable today as it was two hundred years ago at the durbars of nawabs and maharajas.

  • Nawabs, Maharajas Valiant men

    Weddings are a celebration of life, and a chance for the bride and the groom to share the flair on stage, as they embark on a journey together, hand in hand.

  • Curls of wisdom

    Take a good hard look at the mirror, at that lifeless, uncooperative mop on your head that has been through a decade’s worth of chemical products, treatments, heating tools, and resulted in frizzy, dry, brittle, and lacklustre locks.

  • A wind of change in fashion industry

    Our hope with the campaign has been to encourage reliance on local products, boosting productivity, economic development, and creativity, while encouraging the concept of conscious living — which promotes the understanding that we are all in this together and for a better world.

  • Twinkle Twinkle little Trinkets

    Do not think that this is isolated to just women, as more and more men are accessorising their outfits with different trinkets to highlight their style.
