Clash of the fashion weeks
It’s September, and soon the world’s fashionistas will be treated to sartorial delights (and disasters) to look forward to in the next fashion season. In India, we’re going to have the Lakme Fashion Week from September 17 to 21 in Mumbai. And Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week in October in the capital.
Now that’s not good news at all. That’s too many clothes (even for fashion lovers), too many air kisses and too many celebrities. And we really wonder how many of those clothes would be really worth wearing/ buying?
Besides, we’ve just had a couture week, and the whole idea behind couture is to be exclusive. That’s why Paris only labels a handful of designers as couturiers. But this is India, where everyone from a smart college student to a bored housewife is called a “designer”. [End of rant.]
