Introducing Mr. Rajesh Pratap Singh.
Kate’s wedding dress yet again enforces the comments in my post of April 6. Bravo! to Sarah Burton and the sixty people who worked on Kate’s wedding dress at the House of Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton unleashed her creative spirit, her softening touch, elegance in simplicity with intricate style embodying Kate’s personality. William and Kate’s wedding today and Sarah Burton shows us all how life can flow through tragedy, such as beams of sunlight can pierce through clouds. Welcome to a new era. The discovery of light, joy, love, and peace on MY NAME IS KHAN as Canada awaits to welcome the newlyweds.
I have loved the creative work of Alexander McQueen. Imagine being Sarah Burton, having to step into the shoes of a galvanizing designer. The collection for spring, summer and autumn was simply beguiling. Sarah as many know is not new to Alexander McQueen she worked with him for fifteen years and in doing so has inherited his vision of style, grace and beauty the collection leaving you with the feeling that wearing it one could go frolicking through gloom. The future looks bright for both Sarah and the house as she unleashes her creative spirit with the softening of the signature McQueen edge. Bravo! Sarah Burton MY NAME IS KHAN awaits the riveting adventure of discovery as you apply your craftsmanship and vision of beauty.
I have always liked Alexa Chung. What is about her? it’s that Tom boy, casual, and off course that English charm. After a stint in New York Alexa came back to London and like many in fashion jets back and forth. Alexa is the new face of Superga, the Italian footwear brand. This is a good move by Superga as Alexa radiates that effortlessly casual look, that all Italians exude. Ciao Alexa and bravo Superga.
The richness of both Indian and Pakistani fashion comes from it’s selection of fabrics. I commend the young designers who are adding both their own flair to an already textured style with a touch of exotic. The adventure of discovery has begun at MY NAME IS KHAN to seek out the new designers and the people of fashion the likes of Alexa Chung.
If one is living life then one can always point to a place in some far flung city and say it began for me here. Paris is one such place I can say this about, as can many others. It all began for me in Paris on street lined with maple leaf trees on Avenue Montaigne at an apartment above The House of Emanuel Ungaro. For the last four years I have been watching Ungaro to see where it will go. It has great potential. Asim Abdullah dished out a small ka-chang, ka-chang $84 million for the company, but it was never about the money it was about the passion to create. Is anyone really thinking big! at Ungaro! British designer Giles Deacon while having gotten some things right just missed the mark with the spring and summer collection. Fashion weeks are not just pretty spectacles, with pretty girls, but can be divine spectacles with pretty girls and pretty people. Giles is artistic and a provocateur. But COME ON MAN! let's get this show at Ungaro on the road. The adventure of discovery in fashion begins with Ungaro at MY NAME IS KHAN.
