“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

Fashion is a visual power. We all know this, but what about men’s perception of fashion? When it comes to this, it’s not only derived from aesthetics but it also is a reflection of personality and ego. Men’s fashion has evolved in style tremendously and significantly as women’s .Fashion is changing but style is enduring? We want to ask and share a notion of our dear friend Patryk Strzala.

Patryk Strzala – Fashion aficionado, one of the most famous blogger. He is a rising star and as many people say, future trendsetter. You can love him or hate him but no matter what you say, he definitely draws attention. His unique style, confidence, approachability and freedom of expressing his view of fashion makes him one of the most recognizable men’s bloggers in Poland. What is his notion of the good life? What is valuable for him? “Good Life for me is lifestyle and being…beautiful women, exotic trips, unique cars and of obviously fashion…clothes, watches and other accessories which makes life easier and more beautiful at the same time. But fashion isn’t the only way to good life, for me, it is meeting with friends, dealing with various situation, and remembering indelible moments. From every day I take the finest moments and motivate myself. I like to be surrounded by luxury items; well I guess as we all like this…it has been always close to me and remember  luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

This is one of his  stylization, mix of modern look with old style.

Indian Wedding

Marriage is one of the most important events in everybodys life. The time when you find your “other part”, the person who you want to spend the rest of your life with, when you fall in love, all around you and you know that you are ready to say “YES”. Our Western World used to love marriage, when two people meet together and simply fall in love with each other. However it is not like that everywhere. India is a great example where arranged marriage is still practiced. Is it better or worse? Maybe we should trust our parents, they are more experienced and know a lot about men-women relations. Numerology and stars are also helpful. But what if your heart feel something different than what your parents believe?

We had that opportunity to take part in a real Hindu Wedding and check if term ” Big Fat Indian Wedding” is adequate.

For Indian getting married is a big thing, it involves all family, friends and the most important- showing how rich you are!

Traditional wedding can extend even for a week, budgets for an abundant wedding can easily reach around $2 million. But each year, there are dozens of weddings which cost even more than $10 million.

The most expensive Indian wedding ever took place was in 2004 and it was double wedding of Seemanto Roy & Chandni Toor and Sushanto Roy & Richa Roy. It cost incredibly huge amount of $123 Million.

One of the reasons why weddings are so expensive is jewelry. The larger and heavier it is the better it looks. Below is traditional golden belt which is worn by the bride. Indian brides start receiving gold as presents when they are young girls, in preparation for their wedding day.

“Historically big Indian weddings were a result of marriages being more of a ‘transaction’ than a bond of love.”

Families chose a partner for their children based primarily on economic and social standing of the second family. Is it all about the money?

Henna tatoo ( Mehndi ) is applied during the wedding by specially employed women. Every girl can have it in both of their hands but after you have to be careful until it gets dry.

India’s bridal market is one of the biggest in the world.  This is a paradise for women who likes to feel shiny.

At every single wedding  huge(!) number of guests are invited. What I mean by huge? The number is in thousands….

The real Indian wedding is something worth to take part in! You will not find it anywhere else in the world. It is possible to write a book about this. Everything what is happening during this event has own meaning and it is worth to mention that depends of the region people can celebrate even for a week!
