The Lakme Fashion Week has been a stunning success, highlighting the breathtaking growth of the Indian Fashion industry in the last five years and its penetration into the top end of the world fashion markets. Symbolising this meteoric rise was Tarun Tahiliani’s Levi’s show on the second day which has been acclaimed as one of the most incisive shows of the week — and the jewel in the crown was actress Sonam Kapoor.
Dressed in white jeans with jewelled chains and trinkets, she charmed the audience with her confidence, smile and manner. You can expect to see sell-through copies of this at every dinner function during the next summer season! Bleached white and indigo black were the main features of the Tahiliani collection which has finally put to rest the faded, faded-blue image of denim as being cheap street wear.
Economics-graduate Sonam, who made an impressive debut in Saawariya, is looking forward to being seen in Dilli 6 early next year.
