A little biz, hardly any buzz
DAY 3: Forgettable shows on Day three of WLIFWfashion and trends Updated: Oct 27, 2010 17:36 IST
The day began with the FDCI's version of Gen Next designers. With the exception of Walnut by Nidhi and Divya Gambhir, whose brightly printed minidresses and see-through sheaths were the saving grace of the five-designer show, most other shows were amateur at best. Even some of the more established names didn't live up to their promise. With attendees complaining of 'no buzz', a term usually associated with the absence of celebrities, it was unfortunate that even the shows didn't cause any excitement.
Trend: Sequinned hot pants
It's the season of the leg, and in these sequinned hot pants, you'll be showing a lot of skin. Wear it with a tank top for day and throw on a summer jacket and heels for night.Trend: Extra-wide pleated pants
Perfect for the summer, these extra large pants leave you with enough room to breathe.
Trend: Wrap dresses
Designers: AM:PM, Geisha Designs
Made for those whose curves aren't flattered by conventional designs, celebrate the return of the wrap dress. Worn crossed over the front of the body like a high-fashion robe, the wrap dress is good news for every body shape.
Trend: Extra-long sleeves
Designers: Manish Gupta
They look like churi pants masquerading as sleeves, but their length elongates and slims down the arm.
Trend: Floor-length capes
Designers: Prashant Verma
The dramatic designer introduced a suitably dramatic concept-floor-length embellished capes fitted with imposing shoulder pads. Superman would be jealous
Trend: See-through dresses worn over bikinis
If you want all eyes on you this summer, check out Walnut's see-through panelled dresses. Bold yet bashful, don't be scared by all the attention you'll be attracting.
