Curating Style is a creative task. While I have known for many years that I am not an overly keen artistic person, I understand my potential and limitations. While curating the styles for the Elbe I usually follow three Cs of Creativity – Curiosity, Confidence and Courage. Curiosity makes me imagining different elements together. I put them on a lookbook and see how would they look. Once my curiosity is satisfied with a bit of tweaking here and there it gives me the confidence to be sure of my creation and courage to showcase my style and sense to the world. An author once said – The Creative person is an expert in having accidents and then turning those accidents into creations.
