Since it was one of the more meaningful soirees of the season,we made sure to red-circle Sunday for the Diamond Jubilee of the iconic Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai. True to its cultural innings,the evening was a mix of some of the finest names from the world of art hobnobbing with old Bombay hands.

Interestingly,a Kolkata designer was chosen to present a fashion showcase. But it probably was Sabyasachi’s vibe of a suffering artist,or the intellectual energy of his superb clothes (models still bespectacled),that got him the job. That,and the fact that his muse — the beauteous Vidya Balan — is so easy on the eye.

After cocktails at the terrace of the Jehangir,guests were led through a red-carpeted and candle-lit garden path to the main lawn of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum,formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum. A large ramp was set where models presented the full-sleeved,lace-laden collection under hot arc-lights in the sultriest month of the year,against Shubha Mudgal’s amazing vocals. Legends such as Krishen Khanna,Jogen Chowdhury,Thota Vaikuntam and Prafulla Dahanukar were presented a shawl onstage by Balan,Harsh Goenka and Sangita Jindal,but the oversight of a wheelchair runway didn’t allow a glimpse of Akbar Padamsee or Suhas Roy.
