Last weekend at the Blog camp 2006 conference i chanced upon meeting Mr. Lakshman a top executive of a leading Fashion House in India and we immediately hit it off talking about fashion. What followed was an interesting dialogue between me, sunil and Mr.Lakshman which i fortunately recorded as a podcast and will be made available here as soon as i have compile and edited it into usable form. For the benefit of all those who would like to read about here is an excerpt from the discussion…
“Fashion trends today is a top down approach globally whereby most of the trends are driven to the masses by only handful of people like Designer, design houses, celebrities & artist, manufacturing houses so on. This traditional topdown approach can be redefined by blogging about fashion.
Today youth come about defining trends in the fashion world and with the web evolving so fast this kind of inputs as blogs can drive the industry to redifine trends with a bottoms up approach “
I came across Arjun back at Barcamp chennai but couldnt get an opportunity to hear him on Taazza as we had one of our friends (Ram) was presenting something great on internet rich applications from the house of Adobe (A product called Flex). Today after having a snapshot on Taazza i realised i had missed a " killer " that too done on ROR.
First of all Great work Arjun, perseverance really pays and it shows in your product. We see a visible differentiator and a value sell to see it better than Memmorandum and google news. " I see you think global and act local". Thanx for the vision that you are currently keeping the site clean and focussed,
But at an afterthought sometime down the lane dont you feel Taazza will succumb to the commercial bug thus compromising the vision and settling for much lesser ideals … bcos you need to oil the infrastructural machinery more so…
Is there a visionary objectve and also are you prone to acquisitions …only time will tell. But for today Taazza is really fresh and its upto the ace founders to keep it that way!
