Day 2: Monisha Jaisingh


There was not much to dislike in Monisha Jaising’s collection. If there was any collection that was pret ready, this was it! Clean, simple lines, with its appeal lying in uncluttered visual appeal…

I liked the knits with metallic detailing, what a great way to update that same old horizontal striped tee! The tunics were a great example of fusing Indian print with structured, modern fits. The dresses had ready to wear appeal too with their simple silhouettes and detailing on the neck! Sheer printed long tunics made an appearance here too!

Notice how the models were styled? Its that clean/bare, minimal look again! Hair pulled back and very youthful and fresh look…

What did I think of the collection? Not much. Some pieces were good, like those knits. But other than that, very humdrum!

Day 2: Tarun Tahiliani


What does one expect from a master couturier such as Tarun Tahiliani? Glam? Creativity and Imagination? Flowy and Sensual silhouettes? Beautiful fits and Structured clothes? And a dash of Panache perhaps? Of course. And he delivers. His collection was exactly what I expected it to be.

I have so many favorite pieces in this collection. For instance, how fabulous is the sari in white with a halter necked, sleeveless vest that buttons on the outside? Or that long flowy white kurta/tunic with the Grecian chord detailing and the churidaar! Beautiful! Am glad he moved away from bejewelling his clothes to actually using them as a print, digitally transferred am assuming! I loved how that effect looks on the tunic when paired with the churidaar!

Of course, the Jodhpurs made an appearance. I don’t see how practical they ever are for non-derby wear, but there you have it! Jodhpurs made an appearance even in the Ashish Soni collection in the NY Fashion Week! Hmm.

And just when I was heaving a sigh of relief that thankfully this year, as far as the shows go till now, everyone strayed away from having Bollywood celebs get on the runway for them, Tarun Tahiliani goes and has Shilpa Shetty do exactly that for him! We’l just allow him that I suppose, since she has been a muse and graced his show last time around too! And she totally worked the runway!

Her outfit was a shimmering work of gold, though a dress, styled around the idea of a sari! She reminded me of an Egyptian princess, she was totally channeling Cleopatra, methinks!

The collection gets a thumbs-up! Masterfully crafted and effortlessly excecuted.

Day 2: Siddhartha Tytler


Siddartha Tytler’s collection was called Fusion Earth 3000 AD and had the same earthy, organic vibe that a couple of other collections had! Because of the colors used and the silhouettes in question, to me, it reminded me a bit too of the Vikram Phadnis collection! While there were many similarities, like embellished structured jackets, what stood out was the fact that while Phadnis’ collection was predominantly glam, Tytler’s collection was far more laid back and urban-casual!

The color palette was once again dominated by beiges, browns and earthy olives. Printed fabric once again made an appearance. I especially liked the sleeveless vest/jackets!

An interesting collection. Not everything worked but it had its pluses!

This oxidised silver cuff is not available anywhere online (boy did I google a lot for it). I finally found them on Astley Clarke(not for sale though) but they were priced at 795 pounds( that is $1600+!!)
