In times of slowdown,the big champagne and cheese fashion show is more or less extinct. Yet,Delhi-based designer Amit Aggarwal,yet to bloom on Indias fashion scene,unfurled a splashy spring summer show under his label,Morphe,which was launched in 2008. And thankfully,with a few fashion hopefuls save actor Harman Baweja,who showed up after the shoot of Anees Bazmees film Its My Life,the show proved to be a joyful romp sans the maddening paparazzi cameramen.
The Oberoi ballroom was converted into an oasis of white and the show began with the models in the act of undressing with a girlish glee behind a white shadow screen. A juicy green dress paired with slightly daring wedge heels made the first appearance on the ramp,followed by some wildly coloured gowns,big sleeves and tiny skirts. And giving the silhouettes a sharper edge were patterns of pretty embroidery. There were also some ultra-feminine dresses made with semi-sheer fabric,and bows placed strategically at the chest and waist that lent the outfits a sensual glamour.
I have a huge market in Spain,Milan and Paris. And we recently received news that
Penelope Cruz picked up four outfits in Spain, said Agarwal,25. Baweja did a quick disappearing act before the show got over. He eventually gave into some reporters when they mobbed him. I am not here to walk the ramp. I am in Delhi for the shoot and I usually keep coming to the city. When prodded about his style quotient,Baweja added peevishly,I swear by chor bazaar.
