There was the expected high drama on the ramp when the curtains came down Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 Day 3. With the good, the bad and the ugly, the show kept us hooked till the very end. Here’s the lowdown:
The opening pieces of this designer’s collection showcased bridals themed on a pastel palette. With soft hues like beige, baby pink, light blue and white, Sana Abbas’s collection was designed for a graceful bride. The dresses with paisley motifs had a touch of regality and looked majestic on the ramp.
When will this eyesore of a mystery be solved? The designer failed to impress on every levels. With the right recipe for a ramp disaster in hand, Mistry showcased net chooridars, glittery mermaid-inspired lehengas and off-shoulder cholis full of coin-sized sequins. While we laud her for producing well-stitched albeit complicated pieces, we seriously wonder who will ever wear them.
All of us have been through this time and time again. Last year when I started this blog in Fall 2012 it was mostly because I was enraged by the sheer amount of design plagiarism in the fashion and apparel industry. I reached out to the high and mighty in the fashion and journalism front but sadly every one stayed hush hush so they mayn’t be ruffling someone’s feathers the wrong way. I started with a piece about Curious case of copies in fashion and sadly I have never run out of content.
This year it has been no different the lawn market seems quite fertile and lush everywhere. I have been privileged enough to attend 4 launch ceremonies but I refrained from writing much about them because I don’t really know a lot about the design sensibilities of the consumer or about the fabric to begin with. Just few days back a friend of mine whatsapped me a photo, it left me awestruck. You guessed it right. It was a design rip off yet again! and that also by renowned designer duo Sana Safinaz lawn collection 2013. In 2012 the brand copied a design by Emilo Pucci that too in same color combination & there was a controversy over Sana Safinaz TVC and billboards showing Louis Vuitton bags & coolies.

Who says that women are the only ones crazy about lawn? We have reason to believe that men cooped up in offices are in fact crazier about the product! It is their obsession that in turn feeds the obsession of lawn addicts that are drawn to exhibitions.

The benefits of detox
Before you start your diet for real, you need to rid your body of the toxins that are hampering it and kick-start your digestive system. This doesn’t mean fasting! Starving yourself puts your body into a state of deprivation, which, instead of cleaning you out, actually makes your body produce more waste.
What’s your love destiny? That all depends on the size of your pout, according to a study from the University of Leicester in England. Couples whose lips are of a similar size and shape are more likely to stay together. The researchers found that 88 percent of happy couples had lips that mirrored each other’s. [...]
