Several times, street style has also inspired designers to create collections. Sana and Sulakshana of the label The Circus say street style has become popular because it reflects a sense of ease and quirkiness, while keeping fashionable trends in mind. “Street style stands for the freedom of imagination. It lets the wearer bend the rules of fashion and create his/her own style statement, which was what we had in mind when we made our first line, The Paradox, which was inspired by it,” says Sana. Shoe designer Laksheeta Govil of Fizzy Goblet often uses street style as an inspiration for her collections. “We are looking for individuality. What we wear is a perfect conduit for that. Also, street style has become accessible due to platforms like Instagram,” she adds.
