A few weeks ago, when Gurpreet and I were shooting this look, I put up a sneak peek on my instagram and was barraged with messages and comments on where I got the tights from. It was no surprise considering that fishnets have officially moved from the costumes of burlesque shows to the instagram feeds of global ‘it’ girls.
When I had set out to buy myself a pair, I promptly typed in ‘buy fishnet tights online india’ and was greeted with options that ranged from less than satisfactory to straight out of the costume department of a low budget blue film. Why was it so difficult to find something that I felt EVERYONE was wearing? Asos.com had the perfect pair– but at INR 600/piece plus duty- I felt it was a tad bit pricey for what essentially is just some string put together. So I figured I had to do this the old fashioned way, and headed to Commercial Street. And what d’ya know- the first store I walked into which had ‘bra-panty-and-all-hosiery-needs’ board on it stocked fishnets in three different colours with four different mesh sizes. And this is why, ladies and gentlemen, commercial street will never go out of business.
Until next time,
