When your collection is called Mughal Opera and it is being showcased at a resort fashion week by the seaside in a resort location like Goa, you can expect something has gone amiss. And that’s exactly what we – and the few knowledgeable fashion folk felt – when they sat through Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor’s show on Day-3 of the India Resort Fashion Week.
The husband-and-wife team showed off a collection of glamorous red-carpet designs which had no slant towards being resort wear. We could let it pass if they had showed off a few sexy bikinis or swimsuits along with the aforementioned dresses. But quite honestly, their line – replete with done-to-death Renaissance cherub prints and jewel prints which looked pretty much like what Tarun Tahiliani is known for doing – hardly piqued our interest.
The highlight of the show was actress Bipasha Basu who walked the ramp as their show-stopper in a gold molded corset draped lace gown with an ornate one-shoulder crystal motif.
