2022 FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy set for Santiago Do Cacem, Portugal
The 2022 edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy (EVT) is set to fire into life later this week when more than two hundred riders descend on Santiago Do Cacem in southern Portugal for the four-day festival of classic enduro racing. With competitors coming from across Europe as well as the USA and Canada, fifteen nations will be represented as the event reunites old friends and celebrates the very best enduro motorcycles from the early 1970s through to the early 1990s.
• Santiago Do Cacem, Portugal hosts 2022 FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy • Four days of competition include opening speed test, two-day enduro, and final MX • More than 200 riders from 15 nations ready to compete over four days
First run in 2016 during the FIM International Six Days Enduro in Spain, due to the high level of interest in the event the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy became a stand-alone competition in 2021. A successful move, the event attracted a huge entry with enduro and rally legend Stephane Peterhansel taking the overall event win, leading Team France to a commanding Vintage Veterans Trophy win over Team Germany and Team Spain.
This year’s event will fire into life on Wednesday as competitors complete administrative and technical controls before taking part in the event’s official opening ceremony in Santiago Do Cacem. Next up will be the Acceleration Test, on Thursday afternoon, where riders will ride as fast as they can in order to highlight the top speed of their classic bikes, as was commonplace in the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) for many decades.
On Friday and Saturday, competitors will be put through their paces in no uncertain terms as they first face two laps of a sixty-five-kilometer course on Friday before taking on two laps of a seventy-kilometer course on Saturday. With each full day of racing featuring three different special tests per lap, those set on topping the time sheets will have numerous opportunities to do themselves and their nation proud.
The FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy features two main classes – the Vintage Veterans Trophy for national teams of three riders all above the age of fifty, and the Vintage Silver Vase Club category for three riders all above the age of forty. Individual participants are also permitted. Motorcycles competing in the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy are split into five main categories – Classic 75, Classic 79, Classic 83, Open 1986, and Open 1991.
With eight countries entered in the Vintage Veterans Trophy class at the 2022 FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy, on paper at least it looks like Team Italy’s trio of riders – Enrico Tortoli (KTM), Giorgio Grasso (KTM), and Tullio Pellegrinelli (Puch) – will be hard to beat. But with Germany, France, Spain, and many other nations all taking to the start line hoping to challenge for success, the 2022 edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy looks set to be one of the most competitive yet.

Björgvin is an up-and-coming American television actor with a fraternal twin brother. In 2019, this biracial (Icelandic father and Floridian mother) boy wonder made his acting debut as a guest star on Family Time. When asked about his early acting experiences, Arnarson said, “I always liked performing. I used to do community theater back then, I also made short films with my brother… Then my mom asked, ‘Why don’t you start auditioning?’ I replied, ‘Sure!’… I did one commercial, a low-budget film, some horror movies, and a book trailer. I booked some small things and then booked CHUCKY.”
Subsequently, Arnarson broke into film with a supporting role in horror, starring Vadhir Derbez and Guy Pearce, The Seventh Day. Additionally, he solidified a bit part in Hulu’s hit comedy series, PEN15, earning numerous credits in a short span. When questioned about daily set life, he asserts, “I never know what scene we’re shooting until the day of, so I have to be prepared to be super dramatic or super not dramatic.” He further elaborates, “Shooting out of order is interesting to me …like we’re shooting episode 3 but it’s only the end scene, and we’ll shoot the beginning later.”
Björgvin portrays Devon Evans in the TV version of the cult classic, CHUCKY, premiering October 5. “I was on my computer playing games, my dad told me that I booked it. I was like ‘Oh Dang Okay!’” Arnarson recalled the day he got the role. “The first thing I did was watch all of the Chucky movies.”
Born into a family that is both artistic and supportive, it is not surprising that Björgvin Arnarson is an eclectic actor with enormous dedication. Arnarson mentioned that he has a twin brother who is a talented musician and ballet dancer, “We’re fraternal, not identical, but he is three minutes older, he always says that, but whatever.” When they were babies, his mother danced and sang for them, and they soon found out that his father was once in a band and performed in the theater.
While this tailspin continues to earn honors, Arnarson enjoys reading comics, playing the piano and being an active company in the local artistic scene. “I like photography, digital art… putting things together into one big piece… filmmaking, mixed media, Manga… and I’m a big music guy,” Arnarson said.
DEVON EVANS is a boy-next-door and true crime addict who runs a podcast called “Hackenslash,” which sheds light on local crime in his hometown of Hackensack. Evans is hell-bent on making sense of the mysterious Hackensack tragedies, not only from the past but also from the present. Devon is a student at Perry Middle School and is dating “Jack Wheeler” (Zachary Arthur).
CHUCKY is a continuation of the emblematic cinema franchise that retraces the murderous events of the famous killer doll. In the television series, Chucky encounters former allies, sworn enemies and new prey, as he tries to inspire fear, nervousness and chaos wherever he goes.
After his horrible plot to invade America’s children’s hospitals was thwarted in the first season, Chucky now seeks revenge on those he blames, surviving teens Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson) and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), along with his ex-Tiffany ( his sworn enemy).
The series averaged 11.6 million viewers in season 1. Season 2 will premiere on October 5 (trailer) on SYFY and USA Networks.
New to the scene is the ultra elegant and feminine Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Monogram Dentelle. And, as first introduced earlier this month on acclaimed actor and director, Bradley Cooper, the Tambour Watch’s Twentieth Anniversary is commemorated by the limited edition of 200 pieces, and a custom-made trunk in Monogram canvas.
Adorned with white mother-of-pearl in 2019, the Tambour Slim makes a comeback this year in a sophisticated, new iteration. This timeless, refined model pays tribute to the iconic Monogram flower, as first fashioned by Georges Louis Vuitton in 1896. Encrusted with brilliant-cut diamonds, the silvery blossoms sparkle subtly on the black-lacquered dial.
Enlightened by a diamond-set bezel, this feminine collection is available in two different diameters, 28 and 33 mm. It is equipped with a quartz movement and the innovative, Louis Vuitton-patented system of interchangeable straps, making it possible to infinitely customize the watch, by choosing from a selection of over one hundred different designs. Offering two white mother-of-pearl versions, this collection is enriched with black lacquer dials with stunning silver accents, and is set with diamonds. The dial is devoid of hour markers to accentuate the sophistication and femininity of the timepiece. Playing with contrasts, this watch is magnified with a diamond-set bezel: a creation defined by femininity and elegance. Other features include an interchangeable black alligator strap fitted with Louis Vuitton’s patented system, 50 Meters of water resistance, an ardillon buckle, and a stainless steel case.
CLMBR is a vertical exercise machine that works on both the upper and lower body, “…the best kind of primal movements that a person can do,” according to founder Avrum Elmakis, who was on hand to host the event.
CLMBR Fitness celebrated its elaborate grand opening in West Hollywood on Thursday. Chanel West Coast dazzled the crowd on the red carpet with her curvaceous baby body. She wasn’t the only head-turner at this immersive activation. Other notable guests were invited: Luke Rockhold, Dom Fenison, Carter Jenkins, Maximilian Acevedo, Brandon Graves, artist James Goldcrown, Bunnie Barbie, CJ Hammond, Hari Tahov, Jules Liesl, B. Thompson, Nick Pfeifer, Shaka Smith, Nicole Steen, Skinner Jones, Lucas Dell, and Logan Noh.
This workout is a low-impact, total-body routine designed by some of the most prominent members of the entertainment industry. And, obviously, it was fabricated for the affluent, high-powered executives who have little time for anything less than results: Jay Z, LeBron James, Pitbull, Ryan Seacrest, Oliver Trevena, and Novak Djokovic.
This cutting-edge facility, located directly above the once-disheveled Ramada Hotel in Santa Monica, will provide group and one-on-one instruction to the health-conscious consumer. With memberships priced just under $3,000, it’s already in direct competition with rival fitness clubs like SoulCycle and Equinox.
Post-pandemic, those clubhouses have been plagued by poor management, daunting customer service, and dwindling amenities, leaving the market wide open for new entrants.
Breakout Comedian and TikTok Star Tyler Regan‘s one man skits have amassed over half a billion views
Tyler Regan‘s one-man-show of comedic brilliance coupled with naturalistic writing skills has amassed him a sort of cult-like following with 1.4 million TikTok followers and over 2 million followers across all his social media platforms. His comedy-centric content now has over half a billion cumulative views with topics ranging from office etiquette to Karens.
Although the Cornell University alum has been creating videos since 2017, he’s best known for his solid mix of commentary on politics and current events and clever representation of awkward everyday life experiences. “Finding your voice is a journey,” Tyler says, “… And it wasn’t until the pandemic forced my content to become a one-man show that I truly found mine.”
Having grown up on a steady diet of Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Monty Python and Robin Williams, Tyler fell into the comedy profession by accident, quite literally. The realism in his subject matter and deadpan delivery was honed, in part by the misfortune of a college soccer sports injury. He understood how to identify and distill the humorous elements of everyday life to tell relevant stories because, as Robin Williams says, “Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.”
The Philly native is currently filming social media content from a vintage 1976 Airstream while on a cross country trip with his girlfriend but when he returns to Los Angeles, he will continue to parlay his online fame into off-line opportunities that encompass collaborative creative writing for film/tv, as well as other multimedia projects.
Pursuing his comedy dreams in the face of despair, Tyler has the potential to occupy a place in America’s cultural heart.
ABOUT TYLER REGAN
For Tyler Regan, a career in comedy was not on his radar. He spent his adolescent and young adult years in Philadelphia tirelessly preparing to become a professional soccer player. However, at the dawn of his childhood vision becoming a reality, he suffered a devastating ankle injury that forced him into premature retirement.
In 2015, Tyler pursued a master’s degree in engineering from Drexel University and settled into an assistant project manager position. Tyler’s then girlfriend was a content creator who encouraged him to craft and post comical videos to his social media platform. He looked at the opportunity as an outlet to escape the boredom of his 9-to-5 and be his authentically weird self. It wasn’t long before his brand of humor attracted an audience and took on a life of its own, which prompted a move to Los Angeles in 2017 but imposter syndrome set in. While he always had an interest in the film/tv industry, even enrolling in film classes that lead to him composing an original screenplay he submitted to a film festival in his early teens and graduating from Cornell with a BA in media studies.
Once in Hollywood, Tyler continued to put in work by posting daily videos of witty skits alongside actors to his YouTube channel. His dedication and consistency boosted his popularity and kept his subscribers eagerly tuned in for 2 years but he still hadn’t found his niche. And then the pandemic hit. The digital entertainer used the lockdown to pivot to TikTok and build the kind of content he wanted to make with the confidence that his tribe would gravitate towards him.
The Diesel democracy: denim, utility, pop and play, debuting in front of an audience of nearly 5,000. Experimentation for everybody, energy that’s inclusive; this 21st century Diesel reboot has only just begun. It’s a show that breaks a Guinness World Record: at the heart of the runway is the world’s largest ever inflatable sculpture.
“I wanted to open Diesel up to the public, for people who may never have been to a fashion show before. They deserve a spectacle, so we’ve broken the record for the biggest inflatable sculpture in the world. It’s what I believe about the fashion and the state of mind – everybody can be part of Diesel,” says Glenn Martens, creative director of Diesel.
Democratic fashion is everything, with experimentation and subversion for every single day. Denim devoré is created by weaving denim onto a transparent base, like the devoré corset waist of low-slung denim pants. The effect is also created with denim knits, while part-solarised denim is like it’s been left out in years of hot summer sun.
Denim is roughly embroidered with a layer of tulle that’s then torn, while totally distressed denim is held by stitching lines and a sheer lining to bring control to the destruction.
There’s also denim that’s been bonded with a layer of cotton then acid washed, revealing the denim once more. Scans of distressed denim have been taken to create second-skin trompe-l’oeil prints, while many pieces throughout the collection are trimmed with raw denim for pure Diesel energy.
Utility pants with supersized pockets are solarised for attitude, satin cargo pants are future perfect, while little fluid tops are held by wide utility belts. Nylon utility jackets and flying pants have cotton layers that are then cut away; dresses and pants are made from organza layers which are then cut open; double-layer printed T-shirts have smiley holes cut into the top layer to reveal the print beneath.
Acid floral slip dresses are trimmed with lace, as are tank minidresses with frill at the neck and arm. Vivid knits are coated then cracked open, like metallic pop dresses, or sleeveless vests fastened by hook-and-eye. Plasticised denim is waterproofed like jelly, creases left intentionally undyed, and metallic printed coats are like a city reflected in chrome.
Bonded leather jackets are cut with raw edges. Diesel Library denim pieces are bonded and encased in layers of rough-cut denim. Artisanal denim pieces are cut and distressed as if the denim is turning into fur; an artisanal coat is made entirely from over 15,000 distressed and brushed Diesel labels.
Slip-on denim heels have utility pockets to make going out easy. Strappy sandals have sporty soles, while patent boots are finished with a metallic D. Men’s flip-flops are moulded, while Prototype sneakers are cut open for summer. 1DR bags are medium or micro, while D-vina bags are tricked out with sparkling charms, or reimagined with a moulded D.
This season’s Diesel Eyewear collection is a special collaboration with EssilorLuxottica, launching exclusively through Diesel networks in February 2023. Each style, from aviator to wraparound, has colour edging and metallic temples finishing on a perfect D. One limited edition model has been exclusively developed for Diesel Runway and only 55 units will be immediately available through preorder on diesel.com with delivery in November 2022.
– Guinness World Records have confirmed that the specially designed set has broken the record for the Largest Inflatable Sculpture.
– A capacity crowd of 4,800, with over 3,000 members of the public attending for free.
– When the public tickets went online on 1 September, they were gone in 90 minutes.
– 70% of the public tickets went to 18-25 year olds. – As well as the public, 1,600 fashion students from Milan were given free tickets.
– Also attending are NFT collectors, who received a free ticket with the purchase of their AW22 runway NFTs.
– Every single guest to the show will receive a commemorative NFT.
– The show, which marks the start of Milan Fashion Week, is held at the Allianz Cloud Arena under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan.

Amongst the most common ways to put money into an investment is through trading stocks. You can purchase a specific proportion of a firm and gain a profit without needing to do anything other than buy shares in the company.
It goes without saying that those who invest large sums and obtain a controlling stake are members of the boards of directors and therefore are participating in the procedure of decision-making; nevertheless, in order to accomplish this goal, you will need a significant amount of capital.
Apps for trading stocks have seen a surge in popularity in recent years due to the fact that they enable users to track the most recent market developments effectively and make stock investments with only a few taps required on a touchscreen interface.
Having said all of that, we wanted to make sure that you have access to some general pointers that will assist you in selecting the most suitable trading software. Let’s go ahead and investigate them.
How We Rate Stock Apps
Before we go through what makes stock apps good for trading, it is essential that you do some independent research before making a choice. Because no two service providers are identical, doing so will guarantee that the stock application you choose is suitable for the individual investing objectives you have set for yourself.
Before installing a new software for stock trading, we would advise thinking about the following points.
It is no secret that the regulatory standing of the broker is the initial and most crucial measure that you have to verify; in fact, it is the only metric that even matters. The particular governing organisation that issues licences, on the other hand, will be determined by your location.
Traders in the United Kingdom and Europe, for instance, will often fall under the purview of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or CySEC, but in the United States, this responsibility falls to the SEC as well as FINRA.
It is imperative that you steer clear of the stock application of your choice at all costs if it is not governed by a tier-one licensing organisation that is applicable to your region.
The greatest stock investment applications are those that are custom-built for the operating system of your particular mobile device. Users of Windows and Blackberry operating systems are likely to be dissatisfied because this feature will only be available on Android and iOS smartphones in the great majority of instances.
Despite this, you should investigate how simple the smartphone app is to use because different apps have varying degrees of complexity and some are better suited for novices than others. It is vitally important that you should not be hampered in your ability to travel through into the stock libraries and make a purchase by a screen that is of a smaller size.
Stocks that can be Traded
You can now gain access to a diverse range of international equities with some of the greatest stock market applications of 2022. However, this is not always the case, and before creating an account, you should check to see which markets the application covers.
Trading platforms such as for instance, provide users access to tens of thousands of equities that are traded on a variety of stock exchanges. Additionally, you need to investigate whether the stock software you choose enables conventional share ownership or contracts for difference (CFDs).
The days of having to pay fees to trade stocks are rapidly drawing to a close and will be gone very soon. This is one reason why modern platforms are gaining popularity among the next age of stock investors. When you buy stocks, brokers will typically charge one of two types of fees: a fixed cost and a variable fee.
If they do, you are going to be charged for this at both ends of the trade, which means that you will be required to pay a cost when you invest in stocks as well as another fee when you trade them. On the other hand, the finest stock market applications, such as the ones we’ve examined, do not charge any sort of trading fees.
Overnight Financing and Spread
Even if there are a number of commission-free stock trading apps from which to choose, you still need to be aware of the spread. This is just the distinction between the cost at which a stock can be purchased and the price at which it can be sold.
The difference in prices is referred to as the spread, and you are charged an indirect fee in order to gain access to the market. If you choose to trade stocks in the manner of CFDs, then you need to be aware of overnight financing options as well.
Putting money into the stock market without first conducting adequate research carries the same level of inherent danger as placing bets on the outcome of a spin of the roulette in a casino.
Because of this, it is imperative that you select a stock app that provides you with access to tools for conducting fundamental research. The capability to establish price alerts and to get breaking news in real time are at the front of this development.
When it comes to conducting chart analysis, you will want to select the top stock app that provides you with access to various sketching tools as well as technical indicators. This is especially important to keep in mind if you intend to engage in stock CFD trading.
If you are completely new to the scene of stocks and bonds, it is imperative that you start brushing up on basic investment knowledge as soon as possible. When it comes to this particular aspect, we give preference to stock investing applications that include educational content within the app itself.
For instance, certain apps will provide a plethora of tutorials, videos, and sometimes even webinars which can help you advance towards the next level in your trading expertise.
Video game players and developers, especially women, frequently suffer sexism, which is prejudiced conduct or discrimination based on sex or gender. Sexual harassment or the portrayal of genders in video games, such as when characters adhere to gender-specific clichés and stereotypes, are examples of how this could appear.
Video game culture changed significantly during the 1980s and 1990s when it was once thought of as a subculture exclusive to young men. As of the 2010s, women make up roughly 50% of all gamers. However, by not punishing users who engage in this kind of behavior or by including sexist elements in their plots, several video games actively encourage instances of sexism against women.
People in the video games industry are now more aware of sexism as a result of the growing number of women in the gaming business and the subsequently publicized cases of harassment of these women.
Sexism in Video Games
The International Game Developers Association carried out a survey in 2014 that revealed some unprofessionalism women encountered in the game development industry. Women first noted defiance from male coworkers who were beneath them. The study also revealed that white men were preferred for executive jobs and throughout the whole hiring process.
According to a poll, female developers were not treated with respect in the industry and were instead subjected to inappropriate behavior by male coworkers, such as being tricked into going on dates.
Online video games can be host to extreme sexism towards women, with 65 percent of women reporting an instance of sexual harassment in this setting. Women receive three times as many offensive or derogatory comments from gamers as men do, which can be made anonymously by gamers.
Why is Sexism So Widespread in the Gaming Industry?
Well, there are a few things that need to be considered before we answer that question. According to researchers, playing video games has traditionally been associated with men. At least since the 1980s, when the industry experienced a financial depression, game developers have prioritized targeting men as their main market.
Even Esports participants are affected by the video game industry’s male orientation with only 1 out of 500 earning professionals being a woman. Although there is some evidence that this is starting to change, male dominance in the business and its focus on its male clientele have led to the creation of video games with few female characters and hyper-sexualization of those few that exist.
Is There a Light at the End of this Tunnel?
Some people have expressed optimism in response to the most recent allegations of sexism in the industry, theorizing that a tipping point may have been reached and that significant change is feasible. They find encouragement in the fact that recent events have not provoked the customary backlash but rather compassionate reactions, resignations, and promises of culture change from firm CEOs. As part of their efforts to change and reform, several businesses have employed diver officers and recruited high-priced consultants.
Women’s rights activists actively work to change how women are portrayed in video games and how the gaming community as a whole treats them. For instance, feminist frequency, a group founded by media critic Anita Sarkeesian, offers training and seminars to influence game culture and change it for good.
Gaming companies have also taken initiatives to maintain a safe and respectful workplace, including adopting standards and training programs. The French government proposed legislation in 2016 that would reward or incentivize video game developers for portraying more positive representations of female characters in their works, in an effort to combat sexism. These recommendations also lay out a rating system that separates games that support positive female representation from those that do not, with the latter receiving the highest age 18 rating.
Although we still have a long way to go in this battle against not only sexism but all kinds of discriminatory behavior in the online video game industry. It is safe to say that the fact that harassment is now being talked about is a big step forward. Whether the games industry has actually been able to transform and create better working conditions remains to be seen. But for the time being, it has made a start.
Creator and fashion influencer/model, Rini Jain, covers this year’s New York Fashion Week with 360 Magazine. We sat down with her to hear all the hot takes and highlights on one of fashion’s biggest weeks.
What shows did you attend at this year’s NYFW?
I was thrilled to be a part of some amazing shows this season like Pamella Roland, Dennis Basso, Homolog, Selkie, Tia Adeola, Rebecca Minkoff, Tiffany Brown, June79, Melke, Revolve, Bruce Glen, Deity, Leonardo 5th Avenue, and more. I also attended Vogue Magazine’s 130th Anniversary Celebration hosted by Vogue Club. I made sure to catch the glimpses online for some of the other shows that I was invited to, but missed attending those due to conflicts, NYC weather, and traffic like Frederick Anderson, Cucculelli Shaheen, Willy Chavarria, Blonds, KGL (and a few more).
How was this season different from the last season?
The number of runways, presentations, after-parties, and private viewings was clearly high enough to make up for two pandemic years. The waiting lines and guest lists both seemed more inflated than in the past seasons. Even though the central location of NYFW remained Spring Studios, there were more shows this season that were offsite which made it extremely difficult to commute from one show to the other. There were more Influencers and Content Creators in attendance, highlighting how digital content has been instrumental in helping brands move products. This season, I personally had a record number of show invites and collaborations with designers to wear their pieces during NYFW. Also, NYFW was more international this season with two major Italian houses in the list – Fendi and Marni.
Who were you most excited to see and why?
I was most excited for Pamella Roland and Dennis Basso not only because I truly relate to the unapologetic glamour and glitz in their collections, but also since it was the milestone year and show for both of them. It has been 20 years, and 40 years for Pamella DeVos and Dennis Basso respectively since they launched their own fashion labels. While Pamella Roland set was inspired by the streets of New York with a backdrop that looked like a flower stand, Dennis Basso showcase was at the incredible ballroom at the Pierre Hotel with no dearth of celebrities in attendance – everybody from Martha Stewart, to Kris Jenner, to Carmen Dell’Orefice, and more.
What looks stood out to you?
There were so many. Amongst the shows I attended – Dennis Basso’s furry outerwear, and Pamella Roland’s feather detailing was interestingly used in the pieces. I loved the rich colors and dramatic, avant-garde designs of Melke. I am totally eyeing the ruffles, bows, frills, oversized collars, and bags that resembled pillows from the Selkie showcase. Also, I loved Tia Adeola’s take on knitted fabrics, cutouts, and body-cons. From some of the other shows – I absolutely loved Tom Ford’s look for Bella and Gigi Hadid, and the hot pink suit was so stunning. The patchwork pieces at Coach, and the purple and green sequin look at Fendi certainly caught my eye. Peter Do’s opening look was absolutely magical, a perfect example of fluid tailoring. I also loved Tibi’s stab at menswear, especially the full-denim perfectly baggy look. Marni’s ultra-flared velvet jeans featuring artwork of Flaminia Veronesi was a highlight for sure.
Were there recurring themes or trends that caught your eye?
Fringes, Cargo Trousers, Sequins, Feathers, plenty of Back-to-School looks, and the color Purple were definitely some of the common trends amongst many shows.
Which designers did you wear?
I wore pieces from Ivan Young, Oroy Shakhidi, Bani Pasricha, Kerry Parker, Nirmooha, MAM, Misa Harada, Uncuffed Leather.
Why did you pick those designers?
I chose a mix of designers and brands that are creatively different and unique from each other, represent different visions, cultures, the pieces that will allow me to experiment and style the looks uniquely, and allow me to present my personal style and creativity. I relate so much to the flamboyance and elegance of the pieces from Ivan Young. At the same time, I was so intrigued with how uniquely Oroy Shakhidi constructs a piece, and its opulent finishes. MAM, Misa Harada, Kerry Parker are some of the brands that allow me to bring that element of “statement” in my looks with their accessories. With Uncuffed Leather, I relate so much with the immigrant story of the designer Olga Barsky, and its vision to create pieces and accessories with sustainable leather. Every season, I make sure I wear a few pieces that represent my South Asian/Indian roots, hence Nirmooha and Bani Pasricha, that I absolutely love.
What was your vision behind each look?
I usually get inspired from previous eras, mannequins, runways, movies, art and more for my looks. You may describe my style “Mix Match” because I love to create my own looks that are inspired from multiple things at the same time. If I had to describe my look for the Selkie show this season, I would say “Barbie meets Royal Family”, where I paired a Ruffles Pink Checkered set with feathers details, with gloves that had flower details and a Hat to give it a Royal Family vibe. For another look, I created a modern Audrey Hepburn by pairing a black velvet dress with power shoulders, paired with a statement pearl body necklace. For shows like Dennis Basso, and Pamella Roland, I created an extremely sophisticated, flamboyant, elegant, decadent vibe that totally fit into the vibe of the shows I was attending, by wearing a statement dress embellished with ostrich feathers.
Were any of your outfits influenced by your South Asian background?
Yes, absolutely! I make it a point to represent my culture and showcase amazing Indian designers through at least one of my looks every season. This time I wore a stunning saree from Nirmooha and styled it in a very unique way with gold accessories like gloves, handbag, and vintage earrings. The outfit was an absolute show stealer and garnered compliments from the attendees of the event hosted by Afterpay, the official partners of NYFW, and was also covered by various media houses including Getty Images.
Why is it important for you to attend Fashion Week?
I am a Fashion Student at heart. I learn something new from every single show I attend, and get inspired to create better. It is a huge opportunity for me to connect with amazing brands and designers, network with like-minded people, have fun and get more creative and experimental with my own outfits during the Fashion Week.
