When you know its JJ Vallaya, you know its going to be EXTRAVAGANT. Actually in this case collections by ALL the designers will be extravagant, it being ‘Couture Week’ and what not. But still, JJ Vallaya was one show I was really looking forward to. And it delivered…maybe a little too much, but thats what couture is all about. Crazy amount of detailing on traditional Indian silhouettes – lehengas, sherwanis, anarkalis and just a bit of unwanted experimentation with the traditional silhouettes which could have been avoidede. Nevertheless, here are glimpses from the show.
I always try and dress in basics while going out shopping to make it easier to visualize how a certain garment or accessory will look with anything else in my closet. If I over-crowd myself with complex prints or patterns and silhouettes it gets tough for me to mix n match in my head. So I , by forceful habit now, stick to basics like a plain white tee, neutral bottoms and if I absolutely must indulge myself, I add a kooky accessory or shoes which can be removed instantly.

As an experiment with a pair of absolutely gorgeous Steve Madden heels as a part of their Red Shoe Soiree, I wore the heels for an entire day just to see what all the heels are exposed to in my life- the places, the people, the gossip, the scandals and everything in between.
It was a close gathering of fine people from the fashion fraternity and the employees of Lecoanet Hemant for the showcasing of their Summer 2012 Collection. People were mingling, sipping on wine, eating some cheese when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, quite like a ‘fLashmob’ but not quite either…women…wearing the new collection, walked into the foyer area. Women with real bodies and real faces and real personalities. Right from Lecoanet Hemant’s employees to designers, entrepreneurs and more, women from all walks of life showcased the collection in what was a brilliant and id say bold concept. I could see Hemant written all over this idea. And that is why I have so much respect for the guy.
