Typical Delhi A**Hole
A reader of fashionscandal.com sent me this story. Thank you SS!
A drunk-out-of-his-wits lad is stopped by the police in New Delhi. Police smartly take away the key of the car and then these drunken lads goes on an verbal onslaught so typical of Delhi guys – ‘Tu Nahin Jaanta Main Kaun Hoon (You don’t know who I am)’. They use choicest expletives with the cops and also the media folks who were co-incidentally there and filmed the entire episode. Here is the link to that video:
There was some sense shown by the drunken douche-bag’s father ( a lawyer) who gave his son couple of tight slaps. I am amazed that the Delhi Police personnel kept their cool. If I were there I couldn’t have tolerated a drunk loser abusing me and would had taken him to task.
This brats should be immediately arrested for abusing government servants on duty and obstructing them from dereliction of their duty. Shame on you guys!
Mumbai is no better. What happened to the infamous incident of Mukesh Ambani’s son hitting two cars as he sped on his Aston Martin? Absolute zilch as papa Ambani bought over everybody – the victims, the media and the cops. Disgusting!
The India Bridal Fashion Week 2013, which was scheduled from 18th October till the 24th October 2013 at The Grand Hyatt is indefinitely postponed. Vijay Singh of Fashion One that hosts the annual bridal week is yet to announce the reason behind the sudden postponement.
In 2013 India Bridal Fashion Week made its debut in Delhi this July and also announced to take the event global with a London schedule in January 2014. The designers slotted for the Mumbai edition of the Bridal Week had hopes of capturing newer segments of the big-fat-wedding market with this event but those hopes are now shattered.
The Mumbai event had the Delhi line-up of designers like Rohit Bal, Tarun Tahiliani, Suneet Varma, JJ Valaya and the others. Manish Malhotra and Gaurav Gupta were two new names that were to showcase in the Mumbai edition.
Will find out what led to this sudden postponement of the India Bridal Fashion Week just fortnight before it was to kick-off and keep you posted.
I haven’t really understood why the luxury labels take to ‘art’ to earn goodwill. Last year Louis Vuitton brought in the famous artist of Indian origin – Anish Kapoor to Mumbai and Delhi. Anish’s art is eclectic but is still enjoyed by people who don’t really understand art in its esoteric terms. This week Italian luxury menswear company Ermenegildo Zegna unveiled its latest project – ZegnArt at Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Mumbai. Supervised by Anna Zegna, the project aims at encouraging and supporting contemporary artists.
ZegnArt Public’s institutional partner in Mumbai is the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, the city’s oldest museum, whose collection documents the applied arts and everyday life of nineteenth century Mumbai. Under the guidance of the director, Mrs. Tasneem Mehta, the museum has opened its doors to contemporary art, with an ambitious and far-sighted program of Indian artist. The institution has been selected on the basis of a common vision of art as a method of advancement and awareness of a community. In the coming months, together with director Tasneem Mehta, ZegnArt Public will engage with the context of Indian art scene and commission the first art work.
In March this year Ermenegildo Zegna unveiled its latest project, ZegnArt, in Trivero, the town where the company was founded. ZegnArt has been conceived as an independent project but complementary to the Zegna Foundation. ZegnArt focuses on three sections: Public, Special Projects and Art in Global Stores. Public combines the commission of a public work in collaboration with an international institution and a scholarship is offered to a young local artist to study in Italy.
Special Projects section includes ventures in collaboration with cultural institutions. The first such project, curated by Maria Luisa Frisa, is a commissioned installation by Lucy and Jorge Orta, entitled ”Fabulae Romanae”, in partnership and conceived for the Maxxi Museum in Rome, Italy, designed by Zaha Hadid and in conjunction with the Centre for Suistanable Fashion of The London College of Fashion.
The third section of the ZegnArt project will feature international artists, which display their works in Zegna’s leading flagship stores across the globe.
