The Karmic show at the LFW 2012 was a visual delight. With a posse of top-notch designers displaying their creations on well-toned, confident models, the objective of the show to promote Karmic as an affordable designer brand was pretty much met
The clothes are wearable and you can don them in a soiree without attracting unwanted glares. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why the showstopper of the show, Sonakshi Sinha was simplicity personified from head to toe. She was seen wearing a no-frills full-sleeved salwar kameez by JJ Valaya, teamed with a pretty dupatta. Although she did seem to us to be the right choice to represent affordable clothing, what was much more interesting to watch was the array of bright ensembles reflecting the signature style of seasoned designers. And to spice up the aesthetic fest were the front row self-proclaimed fashion aficionados. While some scrutinised the model trying to pick on flaws and good points, the others simply resorted to hobnobbing with each other when their concentration should have been on the collection being showcased. Akashdeep Saigal (aka Sky Walker) and Pooja Bedi were one such example who went on blabbering sweet nothings into each other’s ears throughout the session. Apart from this coochie-cooing couple, there was nothing literally that got our collective goats. While our personal favourite was Anamika Khanna and Rohit Bal, who created a statement with long flowing Anarkalis, even Kavita Bhartia was a surprising breath of fresh air with her unconventional salwars and dresses with jewel necklines and funky embellishments.
Just when we yearned for more, the show was over. But Karmic along with the delightfully plain-Jane Sonakshi did manage to infuse some good fashion karma on the house!
