Day 5: Ashish Pandey


Ashish Pandey’s collection was called, ‘Pope Of Dope’, a collection full of colors that jumped right out at you, metallic sheens, floral motifs, abstract prints and design ideas that all screamed ‘clubwear’! Of course some pieces were way, way over the top but the creative idea was in place. I thought Pandey’s collection was design-strong, fun and quite a welcome respite from the ‘same old, same old’ on the runway!

Day 5: Rocky S


After that disastrous collection that Rocky S did for Nokia, I was very curious to see what would come off his collection and was pleasantly surprised. His collection was dominated by whites, ivory and black, the pallette being minimal, only a couple of pieces in deep red and orange, or belts in red/orange made their way into the collection by way of color.

The clothes were feminine and girly, at times being cute and at times the cuts being very sensual. But once again, though the collection was infinitely better than what he had done for Nokia, I can’t say I was much impressed. Some of the pieces were really nice, with the detailing put in them, but other than that, it was lacklusture.

Day 4: Abhishek Gupta And Nandita Basu


I totally adored Abhishek Gupta and Nandita Basu’s collection. It was street-chic, super kitschy and pop culture on a sleeve! Perfect for the set who can own the look, and flaunt it with some ferocity!

The big kangaroo pockets, metallic shorts, not withstanding I absolutely adored those printed tees. How fun is ‘Fightercock’??!! And that ‘Pataka’ tee? Priceless!

Maybe its just me, but doesn’t it remind you of Manish Arora’s ‘Fish Fry’ ?

Day 4: Varun Bahl


Varun Bahl’s collection was filled with colors of spring, there were greens, yellows, beiges, blues and pinks! Some of the pieces had appliqué work while some others were prints!

Some of the day dresses were quintesentially ‘summer-fun’, they were elegant, yet retained their youthful appeal! Even the metallic tinge or work was quite elegantly used in a dress, or skirt or two. However, rest of the collection was quite same old-same old!

And Celina Jaitley walked the runway. In a hideous metallic dress. Was it a last ditch attempt to breathe some life into an otherwise quite uninspired Day Four? Either way, didn’t work.

Day 4: Gunjan And Rahul


Gunjan And Rahul’s collection, ‘Sirali’ was full of perforated, cut work accents used to give more texture and interest to the garments. The clothes were a blend of softened pastels and well chosen fabrics… There were easy day dresses and flowy evening ones. And even menswear had some really nice pieces like that blue kurta.

They got a little carried away with the whole cut-work thing at times, but it still was a decent collection.

Its been a while since I was bowled over.
