The last Sunday at Orion Mall, Bangalore, was a fun event by Fossil, where DIY was the central theme of it all. A few of the fun activities were keeping the on-lookers busy, including Personalized Caricature artists marking their watch’s tins, some were spinning the wheel to test their luck, or some of them were busy arranging a Flat layout design that captured their personal style of wearing Fossil accessories. An added bonus was that, we could submit our entry for a chance to win $1000. My favourite DIY was making my own watch; It’s fairly simple, a two step process to sum it all – pick the face and then match the strap. But, the whole idea of designing one’s own watch is awesome!

I’m an avid traveler, and a watch is my companion during my journey, to keep a track on time, and to plan my schedule accordingly; because you never know if your phone’s battery would even match your travel schedule.. right? I used to carry a Binocular and a vintage camera with those rolls too, when I was in school. So, my Flat Layout Design is a throwback, to those fun and adventurous travel trips, I’ve done back in my school and college days, along with my friends and family; bringing back all the Nostalgia from the 1990s.
Fossil Inc. is one of of those U.S. based watchmakers, whose design aesthetics are grunge and vintage in nature with an edgy new-age touch. The designs/impressions you see on the watches are inspired by Industrial Machinery; to get inspired by something that rugged and turn that into something wearable, is Art. Featured as part of their exhibits, were a few collections of Fossils that I personally adore, as my style is inspired by vintage grunge too.

The Oak Collection for men, is influenced by the brown colour palette, whereas the ‘The Mechanical’ collection has its jewels showing, I call it the rugged beauty. Kaleido is another collection for women, inspired by the trippy designs in a Kaleidoscope, you can find a handbag to go with your watch too. The ‘Her – Boyfriend’ collection is my personal favourite; it sums up my persona which is a mix of laid back vintage Grunge, simple tomboyish accessorizing style with a topping of femininity.
