Look: The confident woman
At Kotwara by Meera Ali, the models wore breeches, skirts and ivory shirts in wool, chiffon, bamberg crepe and suede. The look combined structure and flowing lines, which I adore. I want to be this woman!
Look: The quirky woman
There were bright geeky glasses, printed shorts, skirts and dresses, along with funky motifs (exaggerated lips) at Niharika. You need to be very funky to carry off this look!
Hippie gone upmarket
Tanvi Kedia’s hippie-deluxe look is about non-conformist glamour with mish-mash of prints like sandwiched stripes, tapestry patterns and hazy geometrics.
Sheer in winter, anyone?
You can layer sheer fabrics in wintery colours like purple and dark blue with jackets, trousers and skirts this winter. Raj Shroff showed us how.
For the girl who wants to be a cop
For those dreamt of dressing in a khaki uniform for work, Rehane has the right look for you—caps and all!
For the music-loving geeky gal
Noise-cancelling headphones- check. Geeky glasses- check. Sequins- check. Feminine silhouette, manly shoes- check. It was all happening at Schon by Sakshi Pradhan!
For Gwenyth Paltow fans
If you liked Gwenyth Paltrow’s “cape” at yesterday’s Academy Awards, Tahera Peeran’s wraps are for you.
Accessories of the day:
Sling-bag with old-fashioned lock at Verb by Pallavi Singhee.
Carved bags at Virtues by Viral, Ashish and Vikrant.
Uncut diamonds and polki jewellery at JJ Valaya.
WTFashion moment of the day
Abdul Halder’s strategically-placed birds made me cringe. Which woman would want to wear this?
JJ Valaya ended WIFW A/W 2012 with a Turkish flourish. He used unusual art and craft based forms such as mother of pearl inlay, Turkish miniatures, Iznik Ceramics, weaves of the Sultan’s robes, exotic birds and graphic calligraphy in his jackets, dresses, breeches, shirts and blouses.
Customary Bollywood appearances of the day
