The Goths and The Madras

by jennine on November 5, 2008

A pretty mixture of east and west, Madras641 so elegantly hits all the right notes in their Autumn Collection. Founded by Subu and Ina, Subu from India grew up in the garment business, and has really integrated a lot of Indian details mixed with gothic charm in her collection… I really liked this because it’s not quite boho and not really dark and drippy goth (personally, I was never really good at either, too cynical for boho, to sunny for goth) Like most of us, something in between, something ultimately more real, more harmonious and more beautiful.

these are gorgeous. i love the lace neckline on the second dress and the fabrics look so lush and warm, perfect for the upcoming winter or first frost. and your statement about being boho or goth, has never hit closer, i always struggled with always being in between too. but clothes can be anything you want them to be and i’ve always relished in that.

Beatiful looks! I love the black dress.

I have a proposition for you girl, I saw the post “What to wear to a Wedding” and I really want to know and see how or what you´ll choose to be THE ONE of the wedding,

@cecile… the 20’s theme sounds gorgeous.

Actually I´m an Event Planner and this is my new project!

The 20s theme is my favourite but we didn´t want anything extraordinary, just keep it simply and lovely.

(I will do it like Carrie Bradshaw!)

I´ll wait for your brides section ;)
