India Art Summit 08

When you get a single day off in the entire week, its so hard to decide on the ideal plan for the day. My lazy side screams for me to stay nicely tucked in the comfort of my bed till late noon but my hyperactive brain signals last day of the India Art Summit, the first of its kind at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The heart and mind battle for a few hours and I finally decide on getting into my most boring kurta and black denims, all set to be almost invisible in a crowd of heavily kohl-ed and khadi clad artists and art lovers(but what did I know!?!).

I picked up my Camera, just in case I get inspired by some piece of art and feel an almost desperate need to capture it. I was all prepared to appreciate art when I reached the venue and suddenly my agenda changed - The art appreciation was very conveniently taken over by my ‘Trend-Spotting’ self and turns out ... style still excites me more than Art.

Without losing much time, I started going around in circles observing the crowd and the unmentioned dress-code. I was so surprised to see so many radically different people with such individualistic sense of style under one roof, bound by the sole agenda – ART. The summit may not have turned out to be as fabulous as I expected but Style quotient was one sure thing that promised this Sunday plan would not be regretted.

I sincerely thank each and every one of the people featured here to be such awesome trendsetters in their own right.

Its time the fashion fraternity takes a few tips from the Arty-Chic community!!
