The indian fashion week is weak and is in need of an aglet to get through the other side.!The indian fashion industry can not go past bridal couture, heavy jewelry, swaroskis, 30 kg - 20 lakhs lehengas and diamond,emerald,ruby studded armour, for how many decades?? Oh let me think, its since, the rani of india decided to sleep in her 50kg night dress, and for the rest of the days to come.Now this is what is called fahion fatigue! and it gets worse with bollywooood stars hijacking the fashion planet.well, i guess it is just a trick to deviate the page3 reporters, from noticing the same old copper sequins,crepe silk and mica highlights. The stars steal the show, their claques make it a success,when the work is barely worth anything but a heavy price tag made of silver. A very few brave designers resist themselves from hiring a " B world diva" just to get snubbed by the pathetic gunslinger paparazzi, who are nothing but fashion errors.
We get to see our proud Indian designers flaunting their bottega venetta and louis vouitton to gain recognition and attention. Oh after all, the food we eat, the politicians ruling , the culture we practise are filtered with a sieve called BOLLYWOOD. The bollywood bhais are the showstoppers of our desi lives.And the fashion houses are anyway empty , other than a few customers who get custom made velvet , embroided suites with pearls and bling on them. Fashion weeks are not for store buyers or for business later and there is hardly any international clientele unless there is an indian fest happening on an alien ground.But there are designer knockoffs , that weigh less and scored on paper price tags available at lajpat nagar and daadar .Our indian fashion gurus are parasites stuck on bollywood stars and their fashionista starwives, who are all proud owners of home decors, but how?? oh yeah ! they got a very intelligent team of deisgners from NID working for them !! That is why they are called star wives remember??.the indian fashion week does not have a fashion front anymore but all that it has is bollywooood bigheads.There is no recognition for real talent but alot for drama.Being condescending about the very rich but self concious Fashionista got no place in fashion and fashion shows in India. Thank god for them else Manish Malhotra ,Varun Behl and Kallol Datta would never actually sell anything.And the designers are all about designing wacky tacky heavy clothes for movies that are not very wearable by everyone.. The Tarun Tahiliani's boutique in W.Bandra has probably no customers other than a few celebrities, and starwives. I found a few drapes,good and exactly similar to that from fabindia but the difference was the silver pricetag , with a mundane, crazy figure on it..
