We all have ‘n’ number of denim stacked up in our wardrobe. I am sure all of us must be having few jeans lying plain there, either because they are no longer in trend or because they have lost their sheen. IML, the bespoke jeans brand recently hosted a jeans makeover event at The Young Stars Academy in Chhatarpur, Delhi to help the fashion lovers create something new with their old pair of jeans which they definitely don’t want to throw away.
The options to redesign the pair involved embroidery, monogramming, thread work, layering, destruction, placing colorful/plain patches, under patches and add-ons.
Each blogger was asked to carry a pair of jeans along to the venue to try their redesigning skills upon. I took my navy blue levis denim, which now carry a completely different look. I randomly selected the design and patch to be placed out of the multiple options available there and then with the help of the stylists I got them beautifully placed on my jeans! And I must admit, it looks amazing now!
You can never get such designs in the readymade outlets. It is indeed fun to try some unique skills on jeans. I felt it to be any day a better option to try your hands upon and even a perfect mean for moving beyond the cliché jeans trend.
What remains more interesting is, IML serves you with on the door services. The executives from the brand visit your place with all the required accessories and designing options. They will then jot down your preference of style and within the span of barely two weeks, you will get the complete new look for your jeans. They have got in-house developed designs, imagination is no bar here! Factors they emphasise upon include future trend, wearability, comfort and quality of fabrics.
The random fashion experiments done by the people were absolutely fascinating. Few even managed to give a complete new look to their respective old pair of jeans. Further, it was even more exciting to revamp an old pair of jeans with our own choice and skills!
