Overheard @ Lakme Fashion Week

Fashion Weeks are a great place to catch up on latest gossips and Lakme Fashion Week is no different.  It was a ‘first’ of sorts – Amitabh Bachchan coming for a show at a Fashion Week. Yes indeed it was for the first time Big B and his wife, Jaya came to see Nachiket Barve’s show at Lakme Fashion Week. Though Bachchan came to see Nachiket’s collection, few other designers did not want to lose a photo opportunity. I overheard a designer excitedly asking a private photographer, “Did you get me in the frame with AB? Show me. Oh please crop the picture so it’s just Big B and me and let me immediately buy ‘lead picture’ slot in Bombay Times through Medianet.” It was first for me – to see one designer hijack another designer’s celebrity guest and encash on it. Come on folks, grow up!

Few Editors of Fashion Glossies are always busy texting or playing ‘Dumb Charades’ with socialites on the opposite side of the front-row. They hardly look at the clothes on the ramp. Wonder how they write lengthy tributes on collections without even watching the show. A keen observant said, “Oh these ladies think and behave like social butterflies. All they are concerned about is a change of outfit before every show.” How true!

A designer was really pissed off when the organisers disallowed an additional firang model for his show. This model has a business visa and holds a PAN Card but organisers aren’t satisfied and said that the model won’t be allowed till the designer gets a NOC from the Home Ministry. Now that’s isn’t an easy job. I can only blame it on cartels. Believe you me; fashion industry here is fraught with camps and cartels.

    Isn’t that Helen Brodie next to Gayatri? Haven’t seen her in forever. What’s up with both Namrata and Gayatri wearing Tory Burch shoes – every suburban mom’s favourite brand.

    So if they’re not really watching the show, then they couldn’t be twittering about the collection…guess they’re just plain bored! Hardly anything refreshing on the ramp this season, hotchpotch of collections from Fall to Resort wear to Bridal and shaadi stuff. ….No comparison but the ongoing London Fashion Week is hell of a lot exciting!
