Leading style influencers take stock of our city’s sartorial secrets, at Amethyst next week.
We’ve said it before. Not many cities see people rocking a heavily embroidered kanjeevaram sari and a goth-futuristic cocktail dress in the same day. You’ll find a popular lifestyle boutique owner easily pairing an ajarak-printed kurta with new-age Alexander Wang shoes here. Another style maven marries Indo-western linen and edgy Indian accessories with such ease that she has no trouble convincing an army of followers to invest in the same. Young bloggers use vintage accessories intelligently with street style. Thanks to our heritage, global travel and an inborn aesthetic sense, Chennaiities have developed a fine sense of style that is original and tough to replicate. As part of the Madras Musings Lecture Series during Madras Week, Rosella Stephen, editor, Indulge, and a panel of the city’s style influencers, from designer Vivek Karunakaran to actor-producer Sriya Reddy and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Tanvi Shah, will explore Chennai’s sartorial signature—from the minimal to the vibrant, to the culturally informed. Drop by and share your views.
6.30 pm to 8 pm on August 25 (Thursday). At Amethyst, Whites Road, Royapettah. Details: 45991631/33
