Southern City where fashion resides: Bengaluru.
India has no city to compare with neither Paris nor New York. India’s way of fashion and living style is influenced by religion and social-economic status. So people are not as free as in western countries. They are restricted by others opinion. Probably cities like Delhi, Mumbai have the most fashionable people but we cannot brush aside cities like Bengaluru. Despite the fact that we have such cultural roots that influence fashion, we’ll mainly talk about mainstream fashion and spectacular everyday wear. In Bengaluru, it is not just fashion weeks, but the people on the street are ruling the fashion.
Bengaluru not only is the IT hub, but also a major fashion destination. Here folks are composed in their outlook and so is the fashion. With most of the crowd being the IT professionals, Bengaluru offers everything vibrant and fun. Bangaloreans believe in experimenting with fashion and mixing Indian with western styles. The city has emerged as one of the fashion capital of the country and is keeping pace with the latest trends.
For the city dwellers being in the city is a big fashion advantage. They take inspiration from fashion streets and malls. In Bengaluru, if you want to keep up with changes in the fashion world, then MG Road and Brigade Road are where you have to be. Despite the mall culture, the youngsters swear by street style fashion. Not only there is variety on the streets, but shopping is easy on the wallet too, making fashion a daily affair.
Commercial Street is one of the paradises for street shopping in Bengaluru, with clothes ranging from costly to cheap; each of them having superb quality. It is a one-stop destination for garments, imitation jewelry, sports goods, and footwear. This place is crowded, so one must prepare to walk a lot and good bargaining skills will make your shopping experience more worth.
