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.

In Label D


The Stardust Awards are happening as we blog and Daisy was one of the first celebs to hit the red carpet wearing a Label D pantsuit. We’ve seen this asymmetric train trend but almost always where it was on the back. In this case though, the jacket had it on its side.

While I can’t fault her finishing touches, she looked great waist up, I am trying to warm up to that side train.

What did you think of her here?

In Amit GT


At the Star Screen Awards last Sunday, Daisy was seen in a strapless Amit GT gown. Hair in a tight top knot, her look was finished out with earrings from Yoube.

Between the origami pleats of the gown and the severe top knot, something about this look felt very Japanese warrior-ish. Having said that though, I wish she’d worn the knot with all the hair tucked in. It distracted from the overall look.

Of Eid Festivities


When it comes to Eid, folks in the industry love to dress up. But, since we don’t have very good pics of the stars, we can’t quite ask who looked the best.

Tell us which outfits you’d love to wear.

In Dolly J


Daisy attended a party on Saturday evening wearing a Dolly J jumpsuit with a half bun do, a gold Bottega Veneta knot clutch and black peep-toe sandals.

In a way she looked nice but one also wished that the bronzer was a little less heavy handed and the jumpsuit didn’t feature those odd pockets. The neoprene material didn’t quite photograph well and the placements of the pockets just made it look weirder.
