Searching for the stylish.

Who are these people? How do they manage to look so cool in these clothes when we know we would look like clowns in them?
The Delhi Walla went to the National Small Industries Corporation Grounds in South Delhi’s Okhla to watch the capital’s other-worldly people trooping in to attend the first day of the India Fashion Week.
There was a woman with flowers on her sandals. Another came in a dress that appeared to have come straight out of a paper-shredder. She looked stunning in it. Designer and photographer Akanksha Sharma was seen whispering to novelist Jeet Thayil. Designer Mayank Mansingh Kaul was also sighted among many others of his tribe.
Outside the gates, a few Delhiwallas were watching the beautiful people from behind a brick wall. They also looked stunning. I snapped them, too.
Delhiwallas (probably) wear Prada
