LAKME FASHION WEEK DAY IV

ANJHULA MYA SINGH BAIS  (click here to know more about this blogger)

Another day another show... we started with the new generation lot of designers and the one that stood out was Sabbah Sharma. She interwove the quintessential auto rickshaw as a motif through every dress, accessory and piece of clothing. Her stage had a huge cutout of a rickshaw and started with an actor in a auto rickshaw driver uniform with shades, a real cool Guido guy and than we flirted down the runway to Hindi music. Sabbah is the brand ambassadress for the emerging designers and for good reason. She was able to create a band new dress for me with superb fitting within four days. I was encouraged to go the source and view her stall, and she was encouraging me to pick something out very sweetly but there has been no time through the madness. I look forward to seeing what she goes on to do! 

The next show was Kallol Dutta, and he's a rock star. He walks around in a dhoti that has the symbol of the womens' loo on it, and I was loving his twist on things. He was joking around with me backstage and asking what's the difference between a 'mental' designer vs. meticulous, fine line I suppose. He has the ability to take any theme, in this case DHL who were the sponsors and weave it brilliantly with the DHL colours of red and yellow through prisms and cubes and sneakers made out of DHL duct tape. We walked to pulsating music underneath DHL boxes and the show was met with a warm round of applause.

The models are tired for sure but we were so inspired by the Grand Finale rehearsals. There are some 'TALL' surprises in order and It promises to be spectacular. I expect nothing less from the designer duo Gauri Naninka. I caught some of it on video and it was fun to see Rohit Bal cheering the rehearsals.

Until Tomorrow,
Anjhula Mya Singh Bais
