The Right Bed and Pajamas

If you really want to stand out in the United States then all you need to do is wear some Indian clothing. It is so different from what traditional Americans wear in their daily lives. I know many Americans who think that it looks very odd and I know others who think it is very fashionable. A lot of Americans always think anything from Eastern cultures can seem a little odd. I think the clothes you wear tells a lot about you. So if you are not Indian does not mean that you cannot wear Indian clothing at all. I love it when I see Americans wear Indian clothing or other cultures traditionally clothing period. I think that is one thing that makes America great. It really is the melting pot of the world. All the subcultures make it so different from any other country in the world.

Something I am sure you have never seen before are some Indian pajamas. They are very similar to the ones that are here in the United States. Except I think that the Indian ones are much more stylish! Many people who are not familiar with them would think that they are everyday clothes that you wear out in public. If I did not know the culture I would probably think that too. Men’s pajamas have a long sleeved top, but the torso is much longer than a normal shirt. The pants for the pajamas are always long. They are mostly like this for women too. You can also get them in short sleeve and sleeveless.

One thing that is not different is the type of bed you sleep on. There is nothing that beats a good mattress. I know one place I got a lot of my mattress information from was http://www.sleepcomfortably.org/mattresses-pads-toppers/. They have all of the information you need to make the right decision about a mattress. I know that they answered all my questions that I had when my spouse and I were looking for a new bed.  They made our decision very easy after reading all of their very informative articles. I know that I thank them every time I wake up in the morning.

My Top Five Favorite Indian fashion designers

I’ve always loved Indian fashion because of its sheer elegance and beauty. For some reason, every time I see someone wearing clothes that were patterned from Indian culture, it allows me to see the kind of person he/she is. Don’t get me wrong; most professional fashion designers have that ability as well. I’d like to believe that the reason for the ability I have above is because of my love for Indian fashion.

In any case, it was a hot Sunday afternoon when the technicians from Broadconnect.com hosted PBX came to fix my phone lines. While waiting for them to finish their job, I sat down in front of my laptop and started browsing the Internet for something that will keep me from boredom. While checking on Google, I suddenly saw on the results an article about the best Indian fashion designers today. The article was just recent and I actually liked it. That then got me thinking about who my personal favorites were. Everyone who appreciates great Indian fashion surely have their own favorite fashion designer too. I decided to write a blog post about this, since my blog has been a little lonely since I first launched it!

So without further ado, here’s my top five favorite Indian fashion designers:

Ritu Beri – A Delhi-based International designer, Ritu Beri is considered as the first Asian fashion designer to start the French fashion brand , Scherrer. I know a lot of my friends who love Scherrer. Also, she’s the only Indian fashion designer that was featured in Acustyl, which is Promostyle’s official magazine.

Rina Dhaka – Rina Dhaka remains as one of the top Indian fashion designers of today. Her taste in fashion is superb and she is well known for her theme projects. Most of her projects revolve around sheer trousers, stretch jerseys, woolen garments, and crochets. She’s a personal favorite of mine because of her ability to combine popular Western clothing with Indian fashion.

Manish Malhotra – Malhotra is revered as the fashion designer of Bollywood stars. Most of his creations were worn by popular Bollywood actresses like Kajol, Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and many others. His talent of imagining a “look” for the nature and his taste for dissimilar fashion has earned him a place among India’s top fashion designers.

Ritu Kumar – If Ritu Beri is known for her French fashion brand Scherrer, Ritu Kumar is known for her emblematic Indian fashion style. Famous for creating some of the most beautiful Indian bridal collections, her works often show her proud roots. She’s also responsible for Miss India’s formal gown and swimwear for international beauty pageants such as Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Asia Pacific.

Tarun Tahiliani – Lastly, we have Tarun Tahiliani. A renowned Indian fashion designer since the late 80’s, his creations always portray beautiful ethnic designs. He loves creating different designs for the sari, which he believes is the most stylish set of clothes for anyone who favors the luxurious look.
