Thoughts about Indian Fashion
When I first arrived in Bangalore, I decided that in an effort to fit in with the locals I would introduce some colour into my drab travel wardrobe. I bought a beautiful fuchsia silk scarf to accent my boring beige, black and white travel pieces. I desperately wanted to purchase reams of colourful fabrics and dress myself in silk salwaars and sarees, but I was unsure of how locals would feel about a westerner in their traditional Indian clothing. So I embraced this colourful culture by imitating certain aspects of their style of dress.
