A carefully planned no slip-up LFW

Mumbai: The fashion frenzy is at its all time high with the Lakme Fashion Week slipping into top gear.

While we see the glitzy and glamorous facade on the ramp, most miss the chaos backstage as models slip in and out of delicate designer creations in a matter of minutes, thereby, breeding grounds for wardrobe malfunctions.

But will there be another case of a wardrobe malfunction in this fashion week?

”I make sure that my garment fits properly. I concentrate on it and don’t deviate from it because I know I don’t have to embarrass the girl,” fashion designer, Wendell Rodricks says.

This time round, even the organisers have pulled up their socks with defined guidelines to avoid wardrobe malfunctions.

Apart from giving models ample time to switch dresses between shows, there is a back up to dim the lights in case of a slip or a fall that is best censored.

“As organisers we have ensured tight security. We also have a 28-point guideline in place,” says Executive Vice-President Lakme, Anil Chopra.

Despite all the patchwork and precautions on the organisers, there is even a curious attempt by the Mumbai police to go undercover and keep a close eye on the models on and off the ramp so that no one can pre-empt accidents and publicity stunts.
