Presenting a New Style of Living in Kolkata with THE 42

Wednesday, July 17 2019

Trends are what attract people, either consciously or subconsciously. Be it shopping, fashion, cuisine – in fact, almost all aspects of daily life. We take inspiration from the things that draw our attention, things that grab our interest upon a glance. We replicate habits and trends that we see in films and television, such as Nike shoes, KFC food, and the list is endless.

The influence of trends is unavoidable in daily life, and we also feel the need to replicate the same each day. To uphold a standard of stylish living, we tend to draw parallels to international standards, since the entire concept of an elegant lifestyle seems to emerge from the West.

Well, not anymore.
