The sociological quirks of the country's commercial capital have only added to its charm. Ask stylist, costume designer and designer Akshay Tyagi, who recently launched a Mumbai-inspired collection titled "Double Decker".
Aiming to capture the beauty of Mumbai's interconnected eccentricities, the line translates his idea of Mumbai into design. Not surprisingly, the cacophony of honking cars and wailing vendors form the inspiration for his work. As do autorickshaws, BEST buses, the ever popular cotton candy and the Chowpatty beach among other influences. All these have found their way into finely crafted saris, unisex shirts and dresses. "I have included references to several things unique to Mumbai. From the Sea Link and the taar (overhead wires) to the marg (streets) and the khamba (electric pole), there are many things that I have played up in this line," he says.
