Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Pearls Infrastructure Delhi Couture Week 2010 – Day2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 22, 2010

Day 2 started with Gaurav Gupta’s collection and ended with Rohit Bal’s sizzling creations.

Gaurav Gupta

Gaurav Gupta’s Indo-Western line of clothes were better than his last fashion week collection but still a lot was left to be desired. Gaurav tried his level best to create the glamour factor in his creations but there was nothing new. Plus many, many outfits were simply not wearable. Extravagent gowns with much more extravagent styling did make the outfits worth a watch but without the extras it would not be worth the look. Styling does not mean taking a vintage piece of jewellery and wearing it on the hair just for the heck of it……………It is important for that piece of jewellery to blend in as well…………….which in this collection was evident that the styling was not upto thebenchmark of global fashion. On the whole not much impressed with this collection………….apologies to Gaurav Gupta but I feel clothes more than styling need to speak volume in fashion sense.

Rohit Bal


Ever seen a fashion show where the models swim in a pool wearing couture dresses…………….nothing is impossible when it comes to Rohit Bal. He too jumped into the pool for a fun-filled evening……….the only difference was that it was in front of a huge crowd………but nothin can stop ‘Gudda’ as he is affectionately called by his friends. From the looks of the outfits I felt I am watching a ‘Dior’ show and Rohit Bal is our native ‘John Galliano’. The clothes were big in terms of the ruffles & layers combined with big hair………..the outfits were fit for red carpet or a gala ball but some pieces were not very wearable…………that is where I was a wee bit disappointed. But thankfully there were not much of those clothes in this collection. The colour scheme was dominated by off-whites and style had loads of gowns which looked straight out of a modern-day fairy tale………..Cindrella would have been happy seeing this collection. It also had long kurtis combined with skirts or traditional lehengas which were in vogue in early 1990s………..remember our very own Aishwarya Rai strutting down the ramp in these styles during her modelling days??? Loved the off-whites, the achkans for men, the Indian fused with western outfits, traditional attire, the way Rohit has played with the fabrics giving them an artistic twist and turn but some gowns were over the top and I honestly feel the Indian audience would still wanna go for something simpler and traditional. The gowns are fit for a Diva who wants to be demure and the centre of attention at any event abroad.
