The Seven Somethings


While many of us are still struggling with the February Already syndrome, India’s first fashion week of the year has come and gone. Held at Mumbai’s JioGarden from February 1- 5, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 transported me to a mostly Mai Tai state of mind. I say mostly because sometimes I found myself in a sangeet.

Anyway, a little over a week later and here are the seven things that I still find myself thinking about…

1. You Go Gen Next!
Starring a bunch of talented designers, LFW’s Gen Next Show kickstarts each edition. Some of these debutants go on to launch super successful labels, others win coveted awards and a few manage to do both. Two labels that caught my eye this season were Soumodeep Dutta for his unmistakable Bengal school of fashion vibe and Poochki for their billowing breezy separates.

2. The Exploding Galaxy
Not the Samsung phones but just the ridiculous number of stars that descend down on one fashion week. (The ridiculous number of fashion weeks is a whole other column). Sushmita Sen, Bipasha Basu, Tabu, Diana Penty, Malaika Arora Khan, Daisy Shah, Padma Lakshmi. Sophie Choudry, Vaani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nimrat Kaur, Preity Zinta, Swara Bhaskar, Ayesha Takia… Showstopper. Overkill.

3. I Need Some AM.IT In My Life
Patola fused into plastic in AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal’s collection aptly titled Seamless. His pieces occupy the top 10 spots in my wishlist. Discarded saris, signature metallics and green means (and end) of fashion, this collection makes the right noises and looks equally fabulous. Now if only I can pre-order one of those dramatic pieces. And then find an OMG enough place to wear it to.

4. DeBo IS A Thing
Thanks to my blogger friends Priyanka and Payal who very helpfully coined the acronym DeBo (Desi Bohemian ICYMI), I am now convinced more than ever that DeBo is legit. Especially since nothing else seems to describe some looks from Label Ritu Kumar’s Maharaja Pop.

To promote the Tamma Tamma reboot from Badrinath K Dulhania, Alia and Varun visited the Kala Ghoda Festival on Sunday where the former was seen in an Anita Dongre creation fresh of the LFW runway.

The organza vest gave the lehenga a youthful touch and she sure looked lovely in it. The jhumkis for just the right touch.

At Anita Dongre’s presentation, both Sona and Juhi were photographed in outfits by the designer. Wearing their hair down, both ladies finished out their look with big earrings. Though they wear their dresses well, if we had to choose, Juhi has our vote. Not a fan of that neckline on Sona’s dress.

Wearing Anita Dongre separates, both Pooja and Kajal took in the designer’s show at LFW. Though they both wear their outfits well, my vote goes to Kajal in the match-up. Not a fan of Pooja’s top. And besides, Kajal’s look just seems fresher in comparison.
