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. If you belong to the A-list of self-respecting social hostesses, woe begone if every week you did not have at least one invitation sitting on your table last November or December.
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. Maybe everyone got bored of what they were doing, so they felt the need to shock."
