Sensible Simmi LFW Report – Day 2
"We live in a society where we are constantly being told how we should look and what is 'cool', but enough is enough."
Simmi Khanna, 28, is the most sensible girl in all of Safdarjung. “Was,” shouts her mother Mrs Satmeet Khanna, “she was the most sensible girl, until she started going to fashion week and getting funny ideas. Sports shoes with everything? It’s the heights!” Little does Mrs Khanna know that Simmi has already landed in Bombay and is bringing her (non) sense to Lakme Fashion Week S/R ’16 this time around. Here she is now…
We live in a society where we are constantly being told how we should look and what is ‘cool’. Minimal this, monochrome that…enough is enough! Today I want to say to you, I am Simmi Khanna, and I LOVE bell sleeves! And bakram! And a Benarasi silk Victorian gown means DREAM. I don’t want this military-style casualness anymore; let’s bring back effort. (We can leave that your-honour hair behind.)
This is a genius initiative to curb social media addiction. Can’t get rid of the phones? Get rid of the hands. You’ll have no choice but to look up and make conversation. Today as I was entering, the usher stopped me and said, “Ma’am, Big Bazaar is that way.” On second thought, maybe we are better off on our phones.
Fashion week has been so hectic, I thought, where will I get time to go sit at the Marriott lobby? Bas Simmi, now no chance to see any Bollywood stars-AND THEN THIS HAPPENED. I am Ghaiji’s biggest fan and I don’t care what anyone says, Kaanchi:The Unbreakable was highly underrated. Of course, I didn’t have the courage to go up to him, you know how it is when you meet your heroes in real life.
Red carpet posing is very different in Bombay.
The make-up artist missed some flyaways but overall, may the force be with him/her – it’s a very stressful job.
Ps: Designer Nimish Shah has very sweetly invited me for Swaminarayan puja at his place. Dekh liya mummy, Bombay also has culture. Accha, I don’t want to go empty-handed, any suggestions for what I can take? Please not too expensive, I don’t know him that well also.
