No there is actually no confusion between the Gingham style and the Gangnam style. You can certainly emulate the famous singer Psy and dance to his famous Gangnam style and you can do this ofcourse by wearing the Gingham print putting your best fashionista foot forward to match the beats.
History says that the Gingham style originated from South East Asia and over time, it literally got lost in translation because the print looks like checks but was meant to popularise the stripes. And no psychological challenge that Psy is the famous South Korean singer and Gangnam is a fancy community in Seoul.
Very clear in my mind which style I was going to adopt, I stepped out in that rather whimsically windy day (which also happened to be the Oscar Day) in London wearing this Gingham print dress with no intention to be overtaken by the Gangnam style! Rather my style quotient continued to add the spices in the vogue-du-jour with a pair of tangerine platform pump. Coupled with a color-blocked bag which I was happy to brag, I had my head held high with a hat from H&M.
Windy and rainy day aside, we made the most of that Sunday by joining thousands of Londoners in the free public-screening of the Iranian film The Salesman which was nominated for Oscar this year and glad it got the award later that night. This public event was organised by the London mayor to express solidarity and to show it as a medium of peaceful protest against the recent travel ban for 6 countries by US Government. We don’t talk politics on this space, so I stop here, but I thought I give you a little background of the location we were shooting around if you are reading/watching this blog from another country outside the UK, and if you don’t happen to follow me on Instagram or/and Facebook where I share daily updates.
Thank you again for reading and watching. Drop me a line in the comment section if you love Gingham print as much as I do.
