Before I announce which designers are taking part and the coveted models who will bring life to the wonderful designer collection, I wanted to take opinion of 5 people and their expectations.
Take 5 on Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week.
My favourite designer is Mahish malhotra. I like the kind of Indian wear he creates... I like Thevarious texture and the colours he uses in his clothes
The elegant saris and anarkalis. I look forward for a great show.
I find lot of bloggers really excited about fashion week. I am looking forward to see
manish and wendell
I am looking forward to Tarun Tahiliani show. I like the smart tailoring and different concepts he brings every year like the embroidered jackets,Kurtas and kaftans.
I want brighter colours this season, more importantly wearable fashion
something that doesnt look good only on the runway
and can be worn even otherwise. I am looking forward to see Manish Malhotra's collections.
I am waiting to see Manish Malhotra's collections.
Been a big fan of Manish Malhotra right from the Rangeela days till the most recent Gauri Khan outfit at Genelia-Ritesh's wedding.
Looks like Manish Malhotra is the favourite among most people.
