In Spendthrift

39

Of the many Spendthrift dresses we’ve seen, this one I am taking a liking to perhaps because of the presence of exposed zips and the lack of overwhelming prints. As for Ms. Desai, I wish she had worn her hair differently. The half-pulled back hair is just so meh.

The Spendthrift line can be found at all Samsaara Boutiques.

P.S. Thanks Danielle for the runway pic.

  1. This is a shocking ‘borrowing’ of the exposed zip motif, done last year by western designer! The zip rosette was available at Accessorize a year ago!!! Thev’ve basically just plonked it on the dress which itself is so out of tune with the rest of the collection!!! These people HAVE to stop plagiarising. It’s shocking how blatant they are about it!

    • I hate how people are always jumping to accuse every second designer of plaigarism. I agree that a lot of Indian designers DO plaigarize and that is unfortunate but there is no need to project that onto EVERY Indian designer.

      Actually, they ARE allowed to show their collection with other shoes and bags as long as they don’t try to pass them off as their own (lwhich they do NOT)

      Also, the rosette zipper is a pretty common embellishment I’ve seen it on a lot of bags and dresses, both Indian and western. That’s like saying whoever uses a particluar motif on their dress plaigarizes

      • Well, Chocolate martini, the glaring truth of the matter is, that the reason Indian designers are regularly accused of plagiarising, is because that is what a lot of them do, a lot of the time! That is a simple fact, and you need only look at this subject a little bit deeper, and you will have your answer. There is no reason for people to randomly accuse designers, but when you see this happening, as an Indian living in New York, i feel insensed and embarrassed by it. As for the shoes…..i realise they are not passing them off as their own, but when you use a shoe in your show that is so iconic and recognisable, it takes away from the garment you are showing

        • @ gronzy: l already said that Indian designers plaigarize, I never denied it. But it isn’t reasonable or logical to justify accusing any Indian deisgner of plaigarism just because SOME of them do. Obviously, a lot of them are honest as well. Which seems to be what you are saying as well :-)

          As for the shoes, in my opinion they are not visually overwhelming, they actually compliment the dress pretty well.

  2. On the model, it looks ok. On the girl..i don’t know. The first pic, it looks alright..but in the close up, the material looks cheap along with the stitching on the ruffle thing..as well as the satin-like material on the shoulders..and a big NO for the hair. Love the shoes though.

  3. she looks good in the 1st pic but she doesnt have the star factor..shes at best in my opinion suited to supporting roles(in films),shes just toooo sweet looking ,in fact she even looks uncomfortable in certain attire,she herself admitted it on that dance show..jhalak dikhla jaa..

    oh i love the shoes though,want them bad,,,

  5. There is something about her look thats “o so television!”
    I dont know if its the overly done up face, that hair or the dress by itself but something doesn’t seem right at all!
    Maybe its the way she wears it thats a lil trying to hard types.. (didn’t wanna write vernacular)!
    But the look definitely isin’t working for her!
