Here’s what I found in my inbox. From Wills Lifestyle. It is called the Wills Lifestyle Signature Line. The designers? JJ Valaya, Rohit Bal, Satya Paul, Rina Dhaka, Ranna Gill, Shantanu-Nikhil, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna. The price points? Rs 3000 to Rs 15,000. The temptation to run out shrieking to pick up one right now, credit card maxed out limite be damned? Immediate.
On closer scanning though, I dont think I would wear any. These are all designed for stick insects. And well, I am a woman with, er, womanly attributes. It would be nice if designers got it into their heads to design party wear for women like me who want all parts of their body to be covered, the drape to camouflage the little tummy that sticks determindedly out, the flare to do nice things with visual perspective and create the illusion of a waist, the length till the ankles for modesty (what, what, I’m a dinosaur, remember, I dont do short dresses!). Maybe I should just stick to sarees.
If I was pushed into any of these, twould be the black and white crinkled Rina Dhaka up left. Nice drape, one shoulder covered, very Grecian, cinched waist for definition and in my favourite colour of all times. I would lay off the jewellery though. A dress this dramatic doesnt need overload with chunky jewellery to kill it.
Which one would you choose?
