We, therefore, make an earnest appeal to the Authorities to find ways and means to reduce this senseless violence perpetrated by disillusioned individuals. The Sikh Community has been targeted since 9/11 and it is totally unacceptable. We appeal for increased security to the Sikh Community at the Gurudwara,” said Gurpreet Kaur Chadha.

LANGUAGE NO BAR FOR

BHUMIKA CHAWLA

Bhumika Chawla portrayed the mellow character of Nirjhara which is still fresh in our minds but her aptitude became visible in number of south films. The north Indian girl started her career with modeling in Hindi music videos and though she aimed to reach heights in Hindi films but got her first break in Great Indian Entertainment’s Telugu film Yevakudu. Gaily she accepted it and the film made her a household name in the south.

Following her success in South, her talent fetched her, the lead role opposite superstar Salman Khan in Tere Naam. And after doing classics like Gandhi my father, Chawla reiterated to South films as no good or exciting offers came from Bollywood. Though she has done films in Punjabi and Bhojpuri yet South excites her.

But one wonders how a girl brought up in traditional Punjabi family goes on to become success in South film industry! Did she ever face any language problem? She laughs, “Indeed! Initially I found it tough and I had to work hard as I did not understand a word of Telugu. We have a senior Translator who sits on the sets the whole day and translates the dialogue and meaning. But after a particular time you get used to it. With great teams and support we sort of manage to overcome the language barrier.”

But after being so well received by the South film industry it sure seems like Language is no bar for Bhumika as far as her work is concerned.

In south Bhumika has donned the role of various shades and will be soon seen in yet another challenging character of that of a journalist in a Telugu film April Fool, directed by Krishnaswamy Srikanth Iyengar starring Jagapathi Babu.

The normally low-profile & media-shy entrepreneur Anand Rao hosted a classy get-together at the opening of his new Audi cars showroom at Vashi and he did it in his own elan. The star-attraction was, obviously, the new Bollywood sensation Arjun ‘Ishaqzaade’ Kapoor who was accompanied by his dotting father who seemed to have been thrilled by the massive waiting crowd outside the mall and Arjun waving at them. Arjun himself was enjoying his new-found stardom as he posed for pitures who approached him and even talked to many guests who wanted to break conversation with him.

Actresses Bruna Abdullah & Maya (who came together), Sagarika Ghatge, Manini De & Rupali Ganguly were present even as Rashmi Nigam anchored the event.

Rajat K Tangri and Sailex NG Presented a Variety of Looks at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

Rajat K Tangri Presented a Vintage Inspired Men’s and Women’s Collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

Mumbai, Tuesday, August 07, 2012: Rajat K Tangri’s collection called “La Cosa Nostra” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 had soft silhouettes but with dark overtones of the baroque era and was a veritable feast for the eyes on the ramp.

Rajat presented an elegant stylish men’s and women’s look for the coming season in rich fabrics especially woven from Italy and Japan. Shades of nude and beige accompanied by tones of teal, verdant green, ink and black were highlighted with touches of metallic gold.

Embroidery was luxurious with 3D metallic and crystal work inspired by the Art Deco jewellery which complemented the clothes perfectly in a tonal form. Fabric options moved from jersey, chiffon, satin, tulle, georgette to leather, and textured materials.

Women’s wear revolved around stately gowns, stylish dresses, well-tailored suits and jumpsuits. Peplums appeared for dresses, sequin sheeting added intense glitter, while tonal embroidery highlighted shoulders, sides of outfits, waists, lapels or the complete garments.

The six Men’s wear garments ranged from sporty biker jackets and jumpsuits to sharply cut jackets with detailed construction. Colours were vibrant for the strong sex as verdant green was seen for a suit while nude leather added to the crispness of jackets. The black trench coat pants with black lace shirt and the suit with shimmering lapels were aimed at the metro sexual male. The final entry – a glitzy black lace hand-embroidered gown ended a show with great aplomb.

The very interesting platform shoes with artistic heels, the Art Deco inspired jewellery by Roopa Vohra and bags by Deepa Gurnani gave Rajat’s collection “La Cosa Nostra” the perfect dramatic touches and added to the glam quotient, which will appeal to the global buyer.

Sailex NG Reinterpreted the Glamour of the 50’s at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

It was the return to the era of glamour and beauty when Sailex NG reinterpreted the look of the 1950’s at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

Inspired by the pin-up girls of that age and their sartorial preferences, Sailex NG showed a line of feminine creations featuring sexy nipped waists, décolletage, cute sweetheart necks, swirling full skirts and a profusion of peplums.

The silhouettes were elegant while the rich embellishments, colours and texturing combined with sensuous fabrics followed by sharp construction gave the outfits a classic, contemporary touch.

Giving the modern woman a choice of great fashion, Sailex had gowns, pea coats, skirt sets, satin blazer suits and even added saris for the ethnic dresser.

Starting with a sexy silver swimsuit and matching jacket, the show continued with the same colour story for a peplum coat. This was followed by the shaded silver double-breast coat dress, skirt and yellow long sleeve satin blouse. The yellow theme continued further for a ribbed playsuit, chiffon midi, long sleeve dress and long sleeve bikini top with high waist satin trousers.

The green story had a draped gown, pleated skirt and a Peter Pan collar top. The net maxi skirt with ribbon detailing set the pace for the gowns. The silhouettes ranged from mermaid to slim and finally a silver sheeting beauty with a peplum ended the show.

The two saris will thrill the traditional buyer as Sailex NG kept them elegantly simple but had two options – silver choli and one with long sleeves and a Peter Pan collar.

Here was a very stylish formal wear collection with large doses of retro chic from Sailex NG, which will thrill the trendsetting buyers.

Vishal Prints Presented Archana Kochhar’s Colourful Retro Metric Collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

Mumbai, Tuesday, August 07, 2012: Geometric prints danced in a colourful fantasy as Vishal Prints presented Archana Kochhar’s “Retro-Metric” collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

It was a cornucopia of style and fashion when Archana displayed her 36 garments comprising 18 saris and 18 fusion creations, as they glided down the ramp. The bold geometrics appeared for cocktail saris, elegant short tunics, dramatic dresses and stunning gowns with cascading drapes.

The colour blocking came in shades of electric blue, bright yellow and tones of green along with neutral black, white and grey. The Retro magic of the 70’s and 80’s prints came alive in a more contemporary form to complete a stunning line of evening wear.

The sari section was a kaleidoscope of abstract prints in silk, satin, chiffon and georgette with detailing like circular tassels on the pallavs or dual prints to create greater excitement. But at other times the saris were pre-stitched for a more figure hugging profile.

The detailing for cholis was interesting with different style directions. Sleeves were slashed and some had draw strings. Necklines were corded or halter. Dual fabrics like velvet and silk appeared for asymmetric styles. Embellishments ranged from crystal embroidery featuring the Devanagari script to twinkling sequins and zari.

The outfits comprised from slinky draped maxis to flirty ballerina layered wired skirts worn with shimmering corsets. Asymmetric hemlines were visible for most dresses and kurtas, with drawstrings giving a new edge as they once again appeared for sheer skirts. As the fast paced show progressed, more glamorous creations floated down the ramp – a white sheer kalidar was worn over a voluminous black maxi skirt with an abstract edged hem, while fully encrusted crystal and sequin shimmering dramatic Red Carpet gowns looked sensational.

Stopping the show was Sameera Reddy, Bollywood star of hit movies like ‘Race’ and ‘No Entry’ in a gleaming printed sari.

When it comes to a colourful spectacle in fashion, it has to be the “Retro-Metric” collection from Archana Kochhar presented by Vishal Prints, which will make a dramatic global entry.

Forever Jewellery Presented the Stunning Bridal Collection by Neeta Lulla at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012

Mumbai, Tuesday, August 07, 2012: It was a grand show that Forever Jewellery presented when Neeta Lulla’s stunning collection called “Radha” glided down the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

Clusters of white temple bells hung from the ceiling while imposing tall pillars on one side of the stage created the perfect ambience. As the hall lights dimmed, the many diyas outlining the stage lit up to reveal yards of white drapes and the graceful figure of Bollywood’s only “Dream Girl” Hema Malini. The star danced with unmatched grace with Raul D’Souza as ‘Krishna” to create the right mood for the show.

Inspired by the beautiful Radha, the symbol of true love, Neeta’s collection was a work of intense beauty in traditional style. Giving a great blend of the East and West, Neeta combined the silhouettes of gowns for the ghagras to produce a wonderful fusion story.

Detailing was intricate with zardozi being the prime craft followed by quilting, appliqué and embroidery. The fabric choice was rich and opulent as Banaras Jaal and Chinar Butti brocades were added to the gorgeous Kanjeevaram, organza, tulle and silks.

The colour palette related perfectly to the theme as Neeta remained true to the traditional shade card for her creations. The colour combos were regal as trios like raani pink/purple/orange and saffron/emerald/ fuchsia worked well.

The collection of lehengas, cholis and dupattas were a feast for the senses and the eyes. To complement the splendorous creations, were the fabulous bridal ornaments by Forever Jewellery. Dazzling kundan necklaces, chandelier earrings, maang tikkas, Minakari bangles – the list was an endless collection of the best wedding jewellery.

Neeta’s innovations for the lehengas and ghagras were mind-blowing as the designer allowed her creativity to know no bounds. Brocade lehengas with centre tiered pleats, multicoloured embroidery on hemlines, and ghagras with vertical fluting panels were dazzling. More innovations came in the form of a dhoti inspired lehenga, pleated and petalled skirt, and a bias cut mermaid silhouette. A crimped silk fishtail skirt and a sari-lehenga gave unconventional choices. Cholis were kept tiny and glittering, and the dupattas – some with giant gold flower appliqués -were opulent in their grandeur.

The breathtaking show ended with model Gaurav Arora as “Krishna”, surrounded by his ‘gopis’ while Neeta walked down the ramp to a thunderous applause.
