Every girl dreams of sitting front row at Fashion Week, but to do it with all her blogger friends is just icing on a hot pink cake topped with sparkly rainbow sprinkles! This Lakme Fashion Week was probably my last, seeing as I’m moving to the U.K at the end of the year, and boy, did POPxo find a way to give me one hell of a farewell!
All members of POPxo’s exciting new venture, their Blog Network, Masoom from Style Fiesta, Rhea from FUSS, Aanam from What When Wear, Kavya from Streak Hue Fall and yours truly were all secretly swept away to a suite on the 27th floor of the Palladium Hotel between shows. There, the TIGI professionals made sure we were primped, preened and primed for F-Row perfection, as we sipped champagne and caught up on all the Fashion Week Gossip.
I opted for a sleek side-parted blowout with waves at the end, which my Bedhead by TIGI hairstylist perfected with their ‘Totally Baked’ volumizing mousse, a little ‘Sugar Dust’ lifting root powder and a spritz of ‘Superstar’ hairspray for hold. Check out the final look here.
We just about had a little time to catch up with the POPxo founders, Priyanka Gill and Namrata Bostrom, before it was time to head downstairs to experience something Fashion Week had to offer for the very first time – a show featuring Pakistani designers, in association with HELLO! magazine. As we settled in to our specially reserved front row seats (ahem!) the lights dimmed and we were transported to a world of sequins, exquisite hand-embroidery and shimmery zardozi à la designers Rizwan Beyg, Zahra Shahjahan and my now favourie, Sania Maskatiya.
