Again, wardrobe malfunction at fashion parade

Fashion shows and wardrobe malfunctions are becoming inseparable. The tamasha going on in Delhi had its share of "fame" on Friday.

Last week, a Belgian model named Debbie, who was making her debut at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion week at New Delhi, became the talk of the town, when the top of her dress went down south while showcasing designer Rajesh Pratap's collection. However, she reacted fast, covering up her exposed body part and walked back with poise. The incident, involving a foreign model, took away all the attention from the collection of the designer.

 It showed that WIFW has not learned from LFW, which had made it mandatory for models to wear nipple tapes and had asked show directors to cut the lights in case of a malfunction.

The designer's collection consisted of dresses with hoods, resembling the dupatta or ghoonghat. There were deep cowl necked tops that looked like stoles as well as long leather coats teamed with slacks and slim fit trousers to give an ultra-chic look.

The collection of Rajesh Pratap Singh was the same that had been showcased at the Paris Fashion Week and earned accolades

The style guru, however, wasn't present for his show here. The 2006 Lakme India Fashion Week in Mumbai too saw some wardrobe malfunctions - media euphemism for dress baring at the wrong places. While model Carol Gracias' halter-top slipped off, Gauhar Khan became a victim of splitting zippers.
