Best Shall Win



Remember the days of HDIL Couture Week that used to be held in Mumbai? Well, it was for the first time that a couture week being held in the country when this event started a few years back. And it unfortunately went as quickly as it came… now there is no news of it… boom and it vanished.

The event was full of glamour I must say, it had all the elements of it both on and off the runway. While on the runway it had the best of Bollywood walking with some of the best known fashion designers, especially the one show that Shahab Durazi had after a gap of five years, showing their high end collections, off the runway, on the aisle, there were the best known names from both Delhi and Mumbai’s stylish socialites. Pity it had to end this way…

While it was still on, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) came out with its Delhi Couture Week. Well, Delhi has its limitations as to how much glamour it can pump in on the runway in terms of Bollywood… but this Week also gained its momentum as it went along for the next couple of years. Some of the best known names show their collections in this event even now and of course there are those names that are happy and there are those who are not so happy when it comes to not getting into the list of selected ones for the runway.

And while Delhi Couture Week is on, another one started in Mumbai called the Amby Valley India Bridal Week. While HDIL Couture Week had Grand Hyatt as its venue and Delhi Couture Week had the Taj Palace as its chosen place, Amby Valley India Fashion Week for the last couple of years had the Sahara Star as its preferred venue. Not as glamorous as Hyatt or the Taj, but the organizers chose Sahara Star and the event went on for a couple of years with a few designers taking part in their event. Last year, Tarun Tahiliani closed their event and this time J J Valaya will be opening and Tarun again will be closing the event.

As is the case with any fashion event, here too plenty or murmurs and campaigns have been happening in the last few days on this event. But I always felt that it is better to wait and see how the event is going to turn out. This time the event is being held at the Grand Hyatt and that I see as a positive change. Let’s see how its lineup of designers is going to bring in their collections on the runway and how the turnout of guests going to be… I shall pass my comments on it then…
