In Swapnil Shinde

Comment image 9

In her yellow Swapnil Shinde, Amyra sure stood out on the red carpet on day one of SIIMA. Before you think that is a really big necklace on her, the gold harness is actually part of the gown. Between that and the Vinita Michael earrings, I don’t think the Mrinalini Chandra cuff was needed here.

P.S. Did anyone catch the first episode of Project Runway today? In the process of covering SIIMA, we totally forgot to watch. :( And in case, you are wondering why am asking, it’s cuz Swapnil is part of this season’s designer pool.

  1. Swapnil and his pick of colours :) The dress is not bad, construction is nice. Dying to see PR, I saw the introductions, with the designer home tours and personal wardrobe on the lifetime channel on youtube. As a dressmaker and a Mumbaiker, I am rooting for the designer. As you know I predicted he’ll be in the top three, in part because of his temperament. What would be his undoing is his aesthetic.

  2. A rocky start on the show: he didn’t bring his own tools which is a prerequisite and that didn’t go over well with Tim Gunn. Still safe but not on top.

  3. Why is Swapni Shinde doing PR?? He has a established career back home why would he want to come here and wreck his reputation in both the places? Is there a hidden agenda or a genius plan here. Can someone please enlighten me.

  4. Well this looks like a challenge thrown to the designers on PR! “You have to integrate one ugly hunk of jewellery on the dress”. Your time starts now!

  5. That gold harness reminded me of Flavr Flav, a reality star/hip-hop artist who had his 15 secs of fame on US TV in the mid 2000s. His signature style was to wear these ridiculously huge clocks as neck pieces. That harness shares a scary resemblance to stuff Flav wore.
