It was a triumphant return to the fashion world for designer Surily Goel. After giving us a preview of her lookbook and her fashion film directed by Mozez Singh, I finally saw the clothes up, close and personal. And boy, were they cool!Inspired by her travels, Goel resumed designing after a 2 year hiatus. The collection which featured floral palazzo pants, rompers, shorts, and cute kaftan-y dresses was well received by the audience. Forgoing the typical catwalk, the event was staged at Two One Two Bar and Grill, in Mumbai. Set to pulsating music, the models sashayed to different corners of the area giving the seated audience a close-up view of the collection. The show stopper was the very svelte Kingfisher model Angela Jonsson.
Aside from fashion editors perched in front, the swish set came out in large numbers to show their support. Seen in attendance was Mehr Jesia Rampal, Neelam Kothari, Mozez Singh, Laila Lamba, Zarine Khan, Sharmilla and Shaan Khanna.
My pick of the most fashionable of the lot is Sameera Reddy wearing Kallol Datta. Just love that top knot and crucifix earrings. I’m so glad she’s changing her look.
Who gets your vote for being the most fashionable?
