It's difficult to say goodbye even if it means finally being able to say goodbye to tireless days and nights for the media, the designers, the models and the organisers. The LFW causes as much stir and sensation as it does bloodshot eyes and weary BB status messages. The fact is, everyone wants to be in the heart of the fun and frenzy even if it means tiring yourself morning to night and the morning after that (I'm referring to the after parties).
The finale day saw designers like Satya Paul, Lina Tipnis, Pallavi Mohan, Abdul Halder and my recent find, shoe designer Rohan Arora. But it is of course the finale that stole the show. I in fact heard some people claim that it is the best finale they have seen in seven seasons! Sanjay Khan, Zayed Khan and Bipasha Basu grabbed attention in the first row. Gauri and Nainika took their 'Fantasy' theme to a whole new level with dramatic presentation, dancers on stilts, impressive headgears and outfits that would make Indian fashion proud on the global map. The silhouettes and cuts were perfect in florals and pastel colours, mint greens were a favourite. It was the perfect blend of drama woven into reality and ultimately making its way into every girl's dreams. The show was such a hit that it received a standing ovation from the audience and saw Sanjay and Zayed Khan get up to hug the designer duo.
During the course of the evening I ran into Raageshwari and Tisca Chopra and couldn't believe how stunning the two ladies look. The venue was obviously brimming with people and the excitement and anticipation was risng every minute.
Case in point, I haven't seen more people in the outdoor smoking zone as I did today. While I didn't make it to the after party,the evening was the perfect end to this fashionable season. Every season, I think the next fashion show can't be as successful as this one but then I see the excitement and people and new things that make every season just as wonderful as the last one. I guess that's what fashion is about--create, innovate, entice and enthrall over and over again.
