Against the backdrop of a magnificent Christmas tree at a City hotel, the party people in the City met, chatted, ate, drank and took in the fashion on display. And there was plenty to take in. Dazzling clothes for men and women, jewellery, home furnishings, bags and accessories, sports wear and shawls. The fashion show co-ordinated by Prasad Bidapa was wide ranging and tempting. Couture clothes and well-made hand bags, glittering earrings and wrist cuffs not to mention bridal wear and soft furnishings.

For those still looking to augment their wardrobes for the party season, there was plenty to tempt and interest both men and women. There were flowing ghagras in jewelled tones and sarees with gorgeous embroidery, ideal for those planning a wedding soon. Bare-bodied young male models showed off a range of satchels and carry on luggage wearing silk sarongs and even holding sparkly cushions as fashion accessories.

“It’s nice to see plenty of colour for a change as I am sick of wearing black almost every night. I think I will add splashes of bright colour to give my party wardrobe some variety for the season,” said one party goer.

For once, the men’s fashion was in abundance too from formal suits to flyaway silk scarves and tunics that were a combination of a kimono and sherwani. Made from rich brocades and silks, they were meant for the adventurous male who could carry off something colourful, outrageous and definitely over the top.
Women’s gowns were also very creative and varied from long flouncy, ethereal creations to short black classic numbers.

Sanchita Ajampur’s flowing tunic style dresses in prints and solids made a nice statement and caught as much attention as Maria Rosa’s well-finished dresses and rich opulent designs.

The fashion show carried on against a backdrop of chit chat and plenty of social networking as people made party plans and vowed to catch up during the holiday season.
