Confession .. Fashion Week ..meeting Akshita and The Big Announcement..!!

Hello Ladies..
Hope you all have enjoyed the Giveaway.. and again Congratulations to the Winners.. and thank you Jaya Wadhva from "Goddes of Couture for Organizing this Giveaway with us and being so understanding and supportive..!! *_*

Wills India Fashion Week
I am sure last week you have read , heard enough about the "Will India Fashion Week " in the Capital.. So I am not going to do any trend alert or fashion forecast here..we all have read and seen that enough on Blogsphere and T.V . This post is all about my experience at the Fashion Week..

I am not whining here ..but when u r studying Fashion you expect your college to atleast know about Fashion Week or other Fashion Events.. n I am not going to take its name here..but yes that how it is.. So..I had to ask a friend to get Me a pass.. and fortunately I got one for the " Hi5 " on Day 2 .. its a show where 5 budding designers showcase a few outfits from their collection..

Day 2
As I sat near the Head-Ramp excited to see which one of them is the one who'll dress Lady Gaga next ..I realized .. there was only 1 designer "Shantanu Singh " out of those 5 .. whose collection I though was different and of the level of the Fashion Week and clothes did justice to the theme " Penguins ".. and the show stopper walked with a Globe in her hand.... left Me with goosebumps ..
Others were good too but their work looked inspired or similar to what I have seen already.. :/

After the show ..fortunately I got the chance to interact with Him.. He seemed like a really Nice Guy.. down to earth.. simple..creative.. and a Man of few words.. coz His Work speaks a lot about his Talent..and I told him.."I see a Lady Gaga wearing your clothes someday.. " (dill se..) congratulated him for the show..and left to discover and absorb the whole atmosphere full of Fashion..
Shantanu with the Show-stopper.. like I said she carried a Globe in her hands ..this is just before our little chit-chat by the way.. sad no pics of that.. :(

In the evening I read a Tweet of a fellow Blogger Akshita from  "Colorific"  about fashion week.. This  made me curious ..as I thought I saw her sitting on the other side of the ramp ..so a few Tweets and Dms later we met on Day 3

I am wearing a Zara Blouse( last worn Here)and Belt ,Jeggings,Black and white structured sling bag, and Aldo flats..

I stacked my wrist with bracelet ,bangles and watches..


Akshita Jain.. she comes across as someone very simple and down to earth ..that is just a Disguise .. She is quiet a Diva in her own ways.. we spent nice 3 hours..chatting about everything but Fashion Week and didn't even bother to attend a show together.. we were talking like long-lost friends .. and I was like " that's another one from the Species.. "
Colorific Akshita jain herself..

She told me ..how she dreamt of getting 10 bags on her Birthday ..by the way she actually managed to get them in real.. *-^  and how she managing a professional life.. a website , a Fashion Blog , Fashion Week  and her Best-Friends Wedding all at the same time..

like I said.."We clicked.. "


And Posed Together.. (just before the Bye-Bye )


It was Awesome meeting you too Akshita Jain.. *_*


And I did Stop by Shantanu's Stall to say Hi! and pose *-^

The Designer and Me.. and Penguins (His Muse..)

That's his Stall..and this  outfit is My personal favorite from his Collection.. I personally think this would have made a better show-stopper outfit..
