Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Spring/Summer 2012 is going great. There were plenty Bollywood glitter. I saw Rajeev Khandelwal, Prateik Babbar and Kalki, Behenji Trying To Be Mod – Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Lisa Hayden whose butt has grown bigger since Rascals and Gauhar Khan.
By the way I spotted the Herve Leger flaunting Wannabe Socialite at Raakesh Aggarwal’s show. Her belly portruded from the body hugging Red Herve Leger dress and this time she had a valid front-row seat. But this Page-3 wannabe ensured she is clicked by the paparazzi before leaving. Mission Accomplished Madam-ji?
My choice of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ shows for Day 2:
Sanchita Ajjampur opened her show with Art Deco swimsuits and Bikinis (thankfully the models were waxed clean down there) and then went on to show some cool resort wear. I particularly loved the Sari T-shirts, the wide-legged chiffon pants, the sundresses with floral appliques, and the feather prints that were really unique. My favourites however were the chiffon gowns with unfinished hems. I hate kaftans but Sanchita gave them a whole new twist, which I found rather alluring.
Namrata Joshipura took us on a Pink Floyd trip. I love her work and she timely moved off from those sequin bathed look, which was becoming synonymous to her label. The colours were perfect for a summer line – Glacial, Ivory, Grey and some Black. I loved the goddess draped dresses and skirts, the Shirt-dresses textured with floral and diamond motifs and something innovative, which Namrata called ‘Kinematic Waves’ and of course the spiky shorts.
