FDCI’s new venture – Delhi Couture Week slated for 15th-18th July 2010 has already ignited ‘Fashion Mahabharat’. The jury that primarily comprised of Editors of Fashion Glossies have shortlisted 12 names for the grand show. There are 13 more names, who would be allowed showcasing through stalls. But the fight is for the 12 slots and one name is particularly causing frayed tempers.I wouldn’t like to name that designer but I am sure once the list is out you all will know who the bone of contention is. From very reliable sources, I discovered that the controversial name managed to sway some Editrix at the last moment to vote in his favour. Wonder who leaked the names of the Jury?Intense lobbying is still going on and in days to come i will fill you up with all the drama. What shocks me out of my wits are those designers who think that since they sell lehengas, they qualify as couturiers. The controversial designer who managed the Prime 12 slot also claimed he made lehengas and sarees and red-carpet ensembles for Bollytown Babes. I think they should call it Delhi Bridal Week instead of Couture Week if lehengas is what we will get to see. I sincerely hope I am wrong!
