Tuesday nights are inevitably dull, every nightspot owner in town will tell you that, as they eagerly wait for the weekend. After all, every club owner knows that the real business begins from Thursday and gathers full steam Friday evening onwards.

But this Tuesday night was different at Forum, partly-owned by Amit and Divya Burman. The GK II nightspot rocked and was packed. So what if it's spread across three levels, even the staircases were full.

The reason: The Lakme India Fashion Week party that saw every designer and model dressed in festive mode. From the shortest skirts to revealing backless dresses, to the raging hair trend,the fringe they sported it all. It was time to jive, to trance, techno, hip-hop and, yes, a bit of Bhangra and remix pop too.

Never mind if Wednesday was a working day, what with shows, seminars and buyers lined up at the fashion week. Having fun was high on every one's mind.

So Bhavna Sharma, Monikangkana Dutta, Sharan Misra and Shruti Chauhan (who informed us that she was leaving the party early because she had to take part in several shows the next day), made merry with designers Rohit Bal, Tarun Tahiliani and Priya Kataria, who came with friend Shruti Sharma, a Bollywood aspirant. The long list also included Anju Modi and Poonam Bhagat. While media savvy Vinod Kaul of FDCI shook hands around, IMG's Ravi Krishnan preferred to hold his wife's hands. Polo hunks Adhiraj Singh and Jaisal Singh hobnobbed with Raymond's Gautam Singhania, Ramona Garware, Amit and Divya Burman, and fitness expert Shreya Singh among others.

Boogie Woogie producer Ravi Behl announced his decision to make a film, if someone was willing to invest. "It's my dream to be a director. And I will definitely make a film one day but I am just waiting for the right finances," he said. All in all, a rocking evening.
