ABANDONED WIZARDING SCHOOLS: ATLANTIS

Eleven millenniums past, eleven millenniums gone. Still, people speak of Atlantis, grand as it was, and doomed to fall in a day and night. Sunken like a stone in the bottom of the ocean, the ruins of the island are no strangers to oceanic oddities flitting past, and it often plays host to curious merpeople who are drawn to the magic of the lost civilization. The people of Atlantis were unusually extraordinary—eccentric, even—basking in their utopian kingdom for years upon years. But the utopia did as utopias do: it fell. Not to natural disasters, but to a monumental earthquake brought on by the people themselves, for the magic folk do not take well to muggle disturbances. When the Athenian army stepped foot on the island, the Atlantean sanctuary was breached. As a last resort to preserve the purity of their magic, they brought destruction to the island. Better no magic than impure muggle influences penetrating the magical society. And so, down, down, down went the shell of the civilization, hoarding secrets in its ruined chambers and drawing strange creatures to its ebbing flow of magic. Many believe the merpeople have made a sanctuary of the island, preserving the scrolls and learning the ways of the Atlanteans. However, the mystery of Atlantis remains just that: a mystery. The island, to this day, has not been found, for places that have no intentions of being discovered often remain that way. [photo cred]

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: THE CARIBBEAN

The magic folk of the Caribbean are nothing if not ambitious. Raising an unplottable island out of the ocean, they retreated to their paradisiacal land whereupon they built a school of magic to pass on their knowledge. Over time, the island grew crowded, and the magical community moved away, but the school remained in operation. Surrounded by a vast blue stretch of water, students must travel via large sentient sailing ships that have been magicked to operate independently (an extremely useful enchantment during the era of piracy as the ships knew to avoid danger). In the waters surrounding the school swims an unnaturally large barracuda with magical scales that can be used as wand cores, but only when it is given willingly. There are many classes dedicated to spice magic, and foreign visitors often say the school carries a distinct aroma akin to a legion of chefs who never stop cooking. Cinnamon for friendship, ginger root for courage and strength, red chillies can fight evil or cause destruction… it becomes the unofficial anthem of the students over time because the chant aids greatly during the multitude of spice-reading exams conducted throughout the school year.

Erevos Aether – Wake the Serpent Not

Erevos Aether’s AW 2014-15 collection, Wake the Serpent Not, contrasts sheer, romantic, fragile textures with armorlike iridescent leather and metallic elements. The architectural qualities of this tough, invulnerable aspect combine with its softer side to create a high sci-fi look that is dark and impressive.

The Art of Indianism

I was skimming through a few of my mother’s old cotton sarees recently, pieces she’s picked up from different parts of the country over a span of almost 20 years.

I was excitedly gushing over how pretty and unique they were, and that was when it struck me that we hardly see girls/women our generation in these gorgeous traditional ensembles anymore.

We’ve been so strongly influenced by the Zara, Forever21, Mango, etc wave that’s hit our country, that we’ve almost lost our own ethnic style somewhere in that chaos.

 I’m not a fashion extremist. I personally love these brands that I just mentioned. But I also love the gorgeous traditional styles we’ve had around us for centuries. So many colours, such vibrant gorgeous prints, and breathtaking jewellery!

 I immediately feverishly started googling Indian fashion blogs to see if there were bloggers who’d made an attempt to incorporate any ethnic elements into the looks they blog about. Unfortunately, I found no one.

 The Scarlet Window, was hence conceived out of an eager desire to revive our native styles, and fuse it with the new-age trends to created wearable, contemporary Indian looks.
