Everybody is aware of the rivalry between Mumbai and Delhi about being the fashion capital of India. They constantly try to get a one-up in some form or the other, whether it’s bringing in the big brands or the residents showcasing their varied styles. The competition is real. The two cities have played the catch-up game in the global fashion capital rankings for awhile now.
But let’s leave that discussion for another day. Fashion is what’s in yes, but the style is what you are! The extremely subjective nature of personal style is what drew us to try and decode the women’s fashion scene of these two cities using two uber-cool Plixxo super bloggers.
Representing the Mumbaikars is resident cool girl Juhi Godambe and the super fun Mehak Ghai shall be filling in for the Delhiites. Our blogger style file is based on the effortless style of Mumbai vs the well-thought-out ensembles of Delhi. We are also going to focus on the more mainstream approach taken by Bombay girls as compared to more individually unique looks of the Delhi girls.
