The 2nd day at Delhi Couture Week I got to see some real couture. One from a relatively new star – Gaurav Gupta and the other from the maestro – Rohit Bal. Gaurav Gupta has been doing drapes since he entered the industry. I didn’t quiet like his Pret Fall 2010 collection where drapes were like forced upon the garments. But with his Couture Collection, I saw Gaurav evolve. His gowns were beautiful and the way he used the swan motif was interesting. His pre-pleated and draped saris are gonna be hotsellers. His tasseled gown, his black one-shoulder gown with puff-ball kinda bottom and his showstopper showed his creative genius.Gudda probably showcased one his best ever collection. His mulmul kurtas, his exquisitely tailored and textured long jackets, his rose appliqued gowns and dynasty shoulders, were simply mind blowing. There was nothing OTT. No heavy embroidery, no glitter and bling yet it was Minimalistically Opulent. I know it’s an oxymoron but that’s the only way I can describe Gudda’s beautiful creations. And no drama at Rohit Bal’s show? No that’s ain’t possible. His models walked into the pool in off-white tunics that floated and looked like huge lotuses. Gudda too walked in to deafening applause.

I have had heard that Lalit Tehlan, the model and Rohit Bal’s live-in boyfriend was seeing a firang girl. But I was utterly surprised to discover that Lalit is already married to this girl – Manizhe Karimi, who too is a model, based out of Pune. She was the ‘Fresh New Faces’ at the just […]
Folks, I got a major ‘Hate’ comment from a reader of the blog who calls me a LIAR and more for blogging that Tanisha Mohan piled on to the reserved media seats at Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla’s show at Delhi Couture Week. I never knew Tanisha is affiliated to any Media House. Also, I thought media […]
Money can buy you big designers, movie stars to walk the ramp, overwhelming ‘paid editorial’ but money surely can’t buy you honest reportage and most importantly – finesse!

Lakme Fashion Week has inducted Rohit Bal in their Advisory Panel. Post Wendell Rodricks exit from the LFW panel, a slot was vacant and Lakme filled up ably with Gudda. Does that mean we will get to see Bal doing the Grand Finale at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week? Most likely, I would say!
It’s not everyday that you get to hear of Bollywood Stars throwing a party for their Non-Bollywood Buddy. The reverse is obviously happening every other day. Fashionscandal.com has learnt that Raveena Tandon and Zayed Khan are hosting a Surprise Champagne Soiree for their buddy Manav Gangwani. I discovered Manav doesn’t have an inkling of this. […]
I am sure you must have spotted eunuchs soliciting on the streets of Delhi. Earlier they were spotted at Dhaula Kuan, in the dark kerbs near the AIIMS flyover or at the Moolchand crossing. These garishly dressed eunuchs (better known here as Hijras) usually catered to desperate auto-rickshaw drivers, truckers and wayward perverts. But recently […]
