    These outfits just go to prove what a terrible designer Vikram Phadnis is!! What a tackfest…

      So true! But what’s more mind boggling than Mrs Poonawala’s choice is how amazing her body looks considering she was pregnant like a month ago! :O Props for that!

      Exactly, after seeing all these outfits I only understood one thing, that Vikram Phadnis is one of the worst designers in India surviving from the past 25 years. ;

      I guess he’s just giving people what they want….which opens up another box:
      It really saddens me that despite India’s great design talent and diversity of stunning textiles, people still prefer these sorts of traditional wear – generic, unnecessarily revealing, made of poor material, stylistically derivative, and ultimately un-sexy.

      I’d personally love to see Ms Poonawala in a stunning Parsee embroidered sari worn with her signature take on things. Traditional textiles can still be interpreted in a modern way…I mean, look at what Ankur and Priyanka of AM:PM, or Gaurang Shah of Gaurang, or Sanjay Garg of Raw Mango are doing!

      Again what is happening to public taste and sense of aesthetic! Can we hope for a revival?

      I think these outfits – pretty much ALL – just made a case against Vikram Phadnis! Terrible, tacky outfits!

    This “sari” is a disgrace to an actual sari and the blouse is even worse.

    Terrible clothes by Phadnis :(
    & Natasha, Isn’t she pregnant like just two months ago. How did she manage to have such figure so quickly.

    This would be a fabulous sari to wear to a Halloween themed Indian party! She looks fab!

    Agree with the verdict that Phadnis designs are the pits. This blouse must come with a tutorial on how to wear. And what a generic sari. Can’t fathom the designer bit here!

    Am very surprised that a fashion blog has given so much attention to this travesty of a ‘designer’ mr Phadnis?!
    Why has his show been covered so extensively on your site when quite clearly each outfit is more horrid than the first. Can’t understand this.
