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.
