    I think this post is a GREAT!! And I’ve been thinking for a while that you guys should expand to other relevant topics also; like this editorial.

    It would be fantastic to see more posts like this, as it makes for a change and expands your horizon and range as a blog which is always a positive thing.

    It’s really refreshing to see this post.

    There is a LOT of potential in there, it holds plenty of promise. I do love the concept . But it lacks that x-factor that could have taken a spread like this beyond the realms of fashion into those of art.

    The two up top are especially unimpressive. The ones below them do work, if only because of the interesting juxtaposition of elements: the gritty urban backdrop which is mirrored in the make up and the feminine clothing styled with liberal doses of punk-chic attitude.

    The clothes however are pretty uninspired, especially when taken as induviudal pieces.

    wow -i am so proud of pria kataaria puri she my fav designer -no wonders here she starts up the line up !

    Hmm, I don’t really like the fact that they didn’t use even ONE Indian model.

    1. Swapna at | | Reply

      They did use one Indian model : Lakshmi Menon is standing in the center (black outfit) in the umbrella spread.

        Lakshmi is the Indian model whom i can recognize. She has that gorgeous chiselled face.

      2. Ashi at | | Reply

        Oh, ok, my bad, haha. I assumed they would use Lakshmi, but her name wasn’t included in the list of models they printed so I thought it was just someone who looked like her.

    Are the shoes from the Indian designers as well??? I’d like to own every pair shown in the shoot.

    1. belle desse at | | Reply

      I dont think so. Very few Indian designers make quality accessories, so most magazines use western labels for shoes/ bags etc.
      Also, I spot a pair of louis vittons (the red pumps with the black ankle tie-ups) and a pair of booties that I’ve definetely seen on net-a-porter.com

      Dont think so…I can see some of them are YSL.

      If you look at the link provided and the high-res pics, you can see the breakdown of all accessories used. :)

    this drives the point home that most Indian designers are either plain confused or/and wannabes.

      LOL!!! rightly put!

    2. KS at | | Reply

      And why would that be? Whats wannabe about these clothes? Why is it when indian designers experiment with their cloths its wannabe? They are designers, they have an urge for experimentation.
      I think its high time we start giving their creativity the due respect. As i read this site and others i feel exteremly proud of the fact that these designers create original and wonderful stuff some of which can be easily held in leauge of other great designer worldwide.

        Before Miranda Priestlys of the world fire me from life ….I use the word ‘Stuff’ with all due respects ;)

    Made In India? That’s pretty ironic since most of those models aren’t “made in India”..

    1. kitschy gal at | | Reply

      they were ‘obviously’ referring to the garments!

  13. charan at | | Reply

    Its sad that when i pick one dress and look at it, it has no “indian” element in it.
    I would think that i would be able to spot a indian designer on a global scale by just looking at the clothes. But no… i dont see why we need to stress that these are by “indian” designers.

    1. Najina at | | Reply

      Charan, that is because there are very few Indan designers who understand the true meaning of “Branding”. u know what I mean….

    Guys these are the clothes created by the top indian designers! for this season. i think its amazing job by Vogue. if you want craft, go to cottage industries.

    1. Najina at | | Reply

      and fashion is not craft? Indian fashion has nothing to do with oozing creative juices ?

  16. Adit at | | Reply

    its a pleasant change from the girls at Vogue putting some actor or actress on the cover of Vogue. This one is very very fashion. Only point being that I have seen some of the clothes and they fall very short as far as the finish is concerned, but do photograph extremely well. Good job Anahita.

    its like bhel puri and chhole and biryani eaten together.. individually great together a mess… too much of a good thing! what a waste of pages to cram everything like that!

    I don’t understand why everyone is always so over critical here. How about a little more appreciation instead of always pointing out the negative! Think about the effort people put for designing clothes or styling shoots. Has anybody thought of how difficult it must be have been to coordinate all those models and clothes?? Has anybody thought of the fact that this was shot on New York and how would they get so many Indian models? How about appreciating the fact that Vogue is putting the younger designers in the same platform as the senior ones??
