Neon fashion trend
Neon is sweeping the fashion world since last year and it showed up in the runways of both Spring Summer 2013 and Autumn Winter 2013 .... Fashion editorials all over the web has been proclaiming the return of the neon 80's for sometime now .... but for us here in India .... Neon is really not a trend .... we have been neonising our world since time immemorial .... where the western world use neon sparingly as an accent,we Indians go the whole hog .... nothing is too bright on our tan skins , we love color, the brighter the better .... Way back in 1956, legendary photographer Norman Parkinson traveled the length and breadth of India for a photo shoot for British Vogue .... when Diana Vreeland, then editor of Harper's Bazaar saw the images, she exclaimed famously ... "How clever of you Mr Parkinson, to know that pink is the navy blue of India" ..... what she meant obviously is that if black, navy blue and nudes was the common color palette for westerners .... for Indians, colors like Rani Pink (shocking neon pink), lemon yellow, Sindoori red (neon orange red), parrot green, Aasmani Neel ( neon sky blue), Firozi (neon tuquuoise blue), Santari (neon orange) is the common color palette .... after all the Indian National Bird is the Peacock (the male) and the National Flower is Lotus .... and the best equivalent of western graffiti and Japanese Manga in neon can be seen on Indian truck decorations! What do you think about neon???
