Like Day 4, Day 5 too showcased a number of fun and yet commercially viable collections, which seem to be a running theme through out the fashion week and it makes sense since there are buyers coming in for business and to look for what will sell, but the designers do need to show what they are capable of instead of belting out tried and tested options .

I know, I know… Apologies are in order and this review long overdue.. but man!! Masters ain’t easy.

A big shoutout to those people who have been keeping tabs on me and the blog and my shenanigans on Twitter, facebook and Instagram… hearing me complain, whine but enjoying my work..Thank You. Also I would like to mention people who email me for fashion advice.. I love getting your questions and suggestions on what you would like to see from me!! 🙂 Always
