Black Handloom cotton dress : Jaypore Kashmiri Jacket: Mom’s closet Boots: Zara Tribal neckpiece: Lost Lover store   Its been quite cold here lately. I know i know what you are thinking, its April already but it doesn’t get better here until end of May probably.

Ask your favorite brand #Whomademyclothes? Get Involved During Fashion Revolution Week 2018

Let me start this post by asking a simple question, do you know “Who made your clothes?”. When you look at your wardrobe, do you ever think about who on earth would have made that piece of clothing you are really fond of wearing? Or when you pick up something you really like and feel like you got a great deal right there, do you ever out of curiosity check it’s label?
