So remember Sabyasachi’s new Prêt line for summer? It’s available at Aza, Mumbai and I found out how much so you can cruise right in and browse (without having a heart attack in front of the sales staff when you spot an exposed price tag.) I kid you not this has happened to me at the very fancy Emporia Mall in Delhi which I scoped out during the Kingfisher Calander launch I fell in love with a technicolor Tarun Tahiliani sari which turned out to be way out of my league at 77,ooors ($1,549) so I did the uncomfortable U-turn from “I love it” to “I’m not sure, I’ll just look around and be back…” exit stage left as the sales staff (who’ve seen it all before) nodded at me indulgently (and undoubtedly giggled later) Ugh.
Day 2 was long. Real long. We had 4 shows to do. Makeup started at 8am, even before breakfast!
Come 11.30 and we were on ramp strutting away. Arjun Saluja’s line was highly talked about. Very structured and straightforward.
The Levis show done by Tarun Tahiliani was different and spectacular. Lots of bling on denim. Sexy mama from the 70’s and 80’s look. Big hairdos and tons of attitude. The Levis show was directed by Meher Jessia Rampal. And as usual, she did justice to Tarun’s offerings. It was actually the most awaited show as all wanted to see what a designer like TT would do to Levis. And of course, the after party too is eagerly awaited which we are all going for at the end of Day 2.
The finale show Day 2 was an uplifter for sure. Anand Kabra and Vineet Behl both did justice to their individual styles. Vineet Behl’s music for the show was exceptionally upbeat which set the mood for the night. I’m off to party now, see you on Day 3.
