NOT JUST FOR MEN
Designer Gautam Gupta says that polka dots, animal prints, geometrical patterns and even ethnic motifs (such as paisleys) are just some of the few elements being used to add zing to this accessory. As a result, the bow tie is no longer meant only for formal occasions, or for only men for that matter. “This trend is really picking up. Not only men but women, too, are adopting it in a big way. In fact, women can also play a little more with the patterns, textures and colours of the bow tie as compared to their male counterparts. The experimental attitude of today’s generation has opened up new avenues for the bow tie,” says Gupta.
