Jabong.com strongly believes in democratizing fashion and bringing the runway to millions of homes. I wish them all the luck as every Indian girl/ woman should dress up as if its the runway. Dressing well should not be reserved for special days but be a daily routine! I would feel so good on the streets of Italy because every woman was dressed to kill. Why should we be behind?
According to Arun Chandra Mohan, Founder and CEO of Jabong.com , "This is just the beginning of a bigger expansion plan that includes launching many other international labels.” Whoa! Am I excited?!
The Collection for LFW S/R 2014:
This season, the Dorothy Perkins SS14 collection finds inspiration in delicate pastels, sorbet hued laces, tapestry florals and tropical prints. The line uses smart separates, chic accessories and a gamut of shoes that are great for taking the look from day to night. For the next-gen, 1980’s rocker-style bleached jeans along with an array of playful bikinis and maillot swimsuits are perfect for a holiday in the sun.
