Elephanta Tales

16

If you live in London, you’ve probably noticed brightly colored baby elephants all around the streets. These baby elephants are part of the Elephant Parade, a conservation campaign that is trying to highlight the crisis faced by endangered Asian elephant.

Corporations, fashion designers and artists came together to put this project together and there are several of them featuring Indian influences too. From the design world, designers Abu-Sandeep, Manish Arora and Tarun Tahiliani have one of their own. From the arts world, Nilesh Mistry got to design not one but three.

But, the most surprising part of the parade has got to be that all the IPL Teams also have one of their own. Where India is concerned, Cricket does trump everything else.

Catch all of the designs inside and thanks ‘Kirthi’ for bringing the parade to our attention.

P.S. If you can’t cover it all (considering they are spread out all over the city), you can catch all of the elephants on the official viewing days at the Royal Hospital Chelsea on the 25th, 26th and 28th of June. Get more info Here.

A dress that could’ve been fun and edgy completely flat lines on Ms. Jessia-Rampal. Meh.

In Pucci

It was a Pucci dress for Ms. Khan while attending a post party match in Kolkata which she paired with ankle-strap sandals. It’s a cute print but in this v-neck/empire waist version, the dress is rather boring.

In Gauri and Nainika

Spotted Ms. Basu wearing a grey floral Gauri-Nainika dress with ankle-strap sandals at Samsung’s 3D television launch. I must admit I am digging the silk tunic dress but not those sandals.

Guess who loves her Hermès scarves?! :)

We love ’em too. And now, if only she’d ditch those denims. *shudder*
