Little Shilpa ‘s Hat Collection.
Manou of wearbout went around Mumbai, meeting very interesting people who keep experimenting with fashion. One of the people he meets is Little Shilpa, who lives in Bandra and is a milliner, not a very common profession in a country that has been discarding and ignoring head-dressing for a long time.
She has an awesome collection of books on the art.
Shilpa’s friends. The evening Manou and the film makers from London met her, she was heading out for a Sundowner party at a place in Juhu with friends. They were all dressed in her funky head-dress made for the occassion.
I’m a big fan of this guy: Prashant Miranda – Illustrator.
Have you ever wondered how strange we humans will appear to other animals? While we wonder about why snakes, giraffes, earthworms and peacocks look like what they are, they must be looking back at us and wondering how strange these strange stick-like mammals are. How do they move around without toppling over or falling? And the many expression on our faces.
For us humans, the face and head is the most important asset. Have you seen Imran Khan of Delhi Belly act? He is a good example to use for strange human facial expressions, especially using the eyebrows, (that evolved to stop the sweat from running into our eyes as we started walking upright) and the hairline that keep moving without any control.The rest of us are not so lucky and the hair on our heads survived to protect our heads from the sun. People look down on bald people even now because they had poor head protection long before head protection evolved.
