As per this super model, monsoon brings in the opportunity for her to sit by window with a cup of tea and cram upon piping Indian hot snacks with her family. The city’s cityscape is amazing from her window.
Mumbai ki baarish just makes her fall in love with the city. But she doesn’t like the idea of stepping out, as it gets cumbersome with her Jimmy Choo shoes and Chanel dresses getting wet and dirty.
In contrast, fashion designer Sonya Vajifdar strongly feels monsoon should not discourage your outdoor movements. One thing that you absolutely have for the monsoon season is a good raincoat.
These days fashionable raincoats are also available for fashionista, who feel rains kill fashion. You can always do the layering smartly. And this can be done with soft fabrics, transparent raincoat or even a transparent poncho.

Same is the case with this star designer, who has similar views. This is what he had to say,

Some fashion designers feel this way..
