These MissMalini Fashion Flashes are supposed to be quick, witty and to the point. So I’m not going to beat around the bush I’m just going to be brutally honest and hopefully (with my first Burn Energy drink of the day) funny! More Pix Here.
Riya Sen
walked for Arpan Vohra, did it help? Umm not really. She looked very cute though!

Brasso Fabric, Whites, Turquise, Rope detail.
A bit ‘been there done that’, was hoping for something truly exciting, so slightly disappointed.
Odd choice of music, which I think didn’t go with the collection at all.

Indian Bridal Wear, Heavy Fabrics, Velvet, Reds, Tangerine and Grey.
Wrong season, great clothes. Amazing quality, just wish she’s shown it  for Winter/Festive (or maybe she’s keeping up with the world seasons and forecasting for winter this year!)

Fun, Young, Fresh, Wearable, Bold Prints, Linens, Floral Prints
A Fun look at fashion, really well-styled and lots of options for the season. I like the play of boyish shirts and full pleated floral skirts.

Lots of separates, great Summer pants, dull colours with pops of yellows. No Prints!
Looked a little dated but was made impeccably, lots of subtle details on the garments that gave it an edge.

Shoes, shoes, shoes, lots of metallics, fitted body suits, slight origami, a bevy of blues and silver, almost alien like. Fav of Day 1.
Created a whole new world, what an amazing vision. Loved the intensity of the garments and his manipulation of fabric and interesting sequin work. Plus SUPERB SHOES!

Soft, sweet, flowy, voluminous, contemporary kimono style dresses
Has showcased the same collection last season, like the play of volume in the kimono dresses.

Mixed Prints, Maxi Dresses,  cute frill details on shoulders. Interesting layer Saris
Sabyasachi has an amazing ability to mix prints and colours. I loved the dresses especially with the frills, its a bit quirky, which is something new for him.
