Friend walk the ramp for KJo

Friends walk the ramp for Karan Johar, but the designs bear no resemblance to his personal style

By Mitali Parekh (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 17, 2009)

Karan Johar has always had an eye for clothes. He has designed the clothes for Shah Rukh Khan since he starred in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge in 1995. Having designed clothes for the suave star for about 19 years now, it is natural that he would showcase his line with SRK as the showstopper. Karan has also designed for Shah Rukh when he was the host for KBC3.

The industry turned up to support Karan’s endeavour. He chose to reflect the mood of the 1980s with Michael Jackson tracks playing, and chains, quilting, zippers, buckles, pointed biker shoes and studs. Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan opened the show. Karan had Dino Morea back on the ramp, sporting boxers with a blazer. Randeep Hooda walked the ramp in a suit, but the sprinkling of suits was eminently forgettable. Randeep and Dino were treated like the other models and didn’t appear for the final bow.

Finally, his muse, Shah Rukh, was the show stopper, who walked with Gauri Khan. Gauri, the only female accessory in this all-male show, played the hot rocker chick with pizzazz, in a metallic short skirt and a blouse. SRK sported a dinner jacket with biker jacket detailing with a chain fastening which extended from the breast to the waist pocket.

The collection showcased a range of sherwanis which borrowed the biker influence as well. Hardware and rugged seemed to be the buzzword here. The show, a collaborative effort of designer Varun Bahl and Karan Johar, was not remarkable, but one took note of the detailing.

Karan seems to have brought in is the production value and a sense of presentation, a mainstay in his films. However, if one was expecting his clothes to be an extension of his personal wardrobe, his collection was the polar opposite of his own sense of aesthetics.

Sandeep Khosla turned up, despite having dropped out from the Couture Week. Jaya Bachchan is said to have coaxed him into making an appearance.
