The past week we in Delhi had a double dose of good fashion. First we had a sneak-peek at Rohit Bal’s ‘Gulbagh’ collection for the forthcoming Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2015 and then we enjoyed Manav Gangwani’s extravagant Haute Couture 2014 show. You can read my take on them in Sunday Standard. Here is the link to the ePaper: http://epaper.thesundaystandard.com/350106/The-Sunday-Standard-Delhi/05-10-2014#page/4/1
Thank God we don’t have B-Town walas like Karan Johar pretending to be a fashion designer and creating a capsule-collection for Vero Moda. It was just a styling job, which was actually done by Anaita Adjania but K Jo laughed all the way to the bank. Jabong, an eCommerce site also played the Bollywood gimmick by signing on Alia Bhatt to do a line for them. I think they are just aping the model initiated by High-Street fashion biggies like TopShop and H&M. ECommerce fashion retailing business is plagued by sites peddling fake stuff so I personally have an issue with that.
Anyway Delhi is the fashion capital of India and we enjoy some real fashion here!
