Enigmatically Yours ~ Malini Ramani at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week S/S'12


Malini has mastered the state-of-the-art progression. True to her globe trotting nature, her theme picks the fluidity and submissiveness from the known and unknown materials. The collection exhibits an entirely different era. One can call it the transition mode—the Indian Classical music transcends into pop and the silhouettes also flow from basic opaque to flowing forms.  The swimsuits were teamed up with fringed boleros. The fringes were emphasized in an engineered manner—they were played over with multi colours. The cuts were sexier and revealed mysterious elements. The collection had a very enigmatic approach when the halter-backs were showcased.  There were nice cuts at the waist and empire-lines.


The Black and white dresses in chiffon and satin gave a marvelous portrayal of soft feminine elements. Once again the jumpsuits were straight and linear. The tie and dye effect was an eye-catching episode of entire collection. The designer created Ombre gradations with the blues and whites.

Style Wars ~ Gauri and Nainika Karan at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer '12


While the eyes wanted to see what was not seen until now and the show started gradually and methodically. The colours were peppy and not to miss out on.  A very well chosen palette and more than cautious range of silhouettes were visible on the ramp. The designer duo featured dresses with basic bodies— from knee lengths to longer ones.  Long jumpsuits in hot pinks and a trail combined with the shorter ones made the collection look superb. One shoulder dress was highlighted with gold metallic button. In fact, metallic buttons made the collection stand out.  The shapes were at times dreamy— there were long flowing silhouettes with flair on the side seam in circular format, going round the neck and finally making their way to the hem.  Colours were grey, black, mauve, lavender, hot pinks, mustard and aqua marine blue.
A versatile play of the headgears added the much required attitude.  There were uniforms caps in crushed shapes that matched dresses of the same shade. Another eye-catching element was the self coloured belts with gold eyelets. The pocket-lines were highlighted.  Asymmetric lines never looked so good before.

Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Glide-On Pencil 'Vs' Colorbar Blackout I-Glide Pencil


I have always wanted to compare these two eye liner pencils. One is a high street inaccessible brand & the other is an affordable brand in India. But what do they have in common? The word "Glide Hyphen" in their names + they are both black.

So, let's begin.
