Did someone say the brr word, winter being in the air, temperatures dropping to single digits? Not if you were present at the Fall/Winter collections of Indian fashion designers in the capital.

Togged in the warmest clothing permissible under the social law, most in the audience were surprised to see spaghetti straps, transparent fabrics and more often than not, more body than usual on display. Confesses designer Manish Arora, whose own presentation had its share of skin on show: "This year there were definitely more shows that had revealing clothes.
