A pre-show wine-guzzling session hosted by designer Ritu Kumar.
Chivas Studio, at the WIFW venue in Okhla, managed to envelope guests making blink-and-miss-appearances.
Bouncy music and classy whiskey pulled partyhoppers to the ostentatious lounge. Since Kumar’s show was to kickstart in a while, this one was a short-lived affair. Kumar’s son, designer Amrish slipped into a new shirt to accompany mum for the show.
While he tossed a quick drink before heading to the main stage area, others seen giving into scotch-ing heat were designers Gauri Karan, JJ Valaya, Nida Mahmood, Masaba and Gaurav Gupta, models Diandra Soares and Indrani Dasgupta, actor Jas Arora and socialite Ayesha Thapar, among others.
