WLIFW: Gauri And Nainika

Gauri & Nainika did what they do best, evening and cocktail dresses! There were wide shawl/boat necklines, dramatic draping, and silhouettes that were reminiscent of old world charm with ethereal textures.

The fabrics were layered and teased and there was an unexpected train on a dress here and there. And the color palette swayed between bold with red and fuschia, and classic with black and beige!

A very feminine collection, some of those pieces though, did remind me of Elie Saab.

WLIFW: Mandira Wirk

Metallic was the keyword at Mandira Wirk’s show! Greys, silver, gold and copper, most with a brushed sheen and metallic shimmer to them made up the color palette! A couple of pieces in ‘houndstooth’ made their way into the collection which I did like. The collection was very retro glamorous, a nod and a wink to playful eighties but thankfully without the padded-shoulder power suits!

WLIFW: Vikram Phadnis

The Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2008 opened with Vikram Phadnis’ collection. Blues, olives, peaches and pastels made up the color palette and ‘metallic’ continued to make its presence felt even into Fall.

The skirts and dresses were ruched and the volume came from tule! You couldn’t miss the opaque tights, a Fall staple as far as I am concerned and there was a lot of layering! Embellished garments go from Spring to Fall and like metallics, seem to be a trend thats going to stick for a while!

Guess Who Made It To Front Row?

Spotted Shilpa Shetty at the Louis Vuitton Fall 08 show!! Its the Paris Fashion Week and she was front row!!

While its normal for front-row attendees to wear or carry something from the designer whose show they are attending…I just have to fault Shilpa’s stole! Is the monogrammed shawl the best she could do? Really?

Also, check her arm candy out… She is carrying the LV Joke Bag (thats what it is called!)! The bag has jokes by Henny Youngman and the logo is designed by artist Richard Prince, who is known for his Jokes series work pertaining to sexual frustrations and middle-class American mentality. And so the bag has quite a bit of sexist jokes on it and is called ‘The Joke Bag’! Made the connection?

You might scoff at her ‘Big Brother’ tide of fame but look where it got her and hey if she is front-row at Paris Fashion Week, she gets top billing from us! It might be Kareena who wants to be like Victoria Beckham but look who has an ‘in’ with Marc Jacobs!! Let the claws come out!
