We see Mahe (her nickname) wearing bright sea green eyeliner that goes well with her Hawaiian complexion. “I love experimenting with colour, and the fashion week in India is the best place to go all out. On American runways you won’t find models wearing loud make-up, but I think Europeans and Asians love to dabble in riveting hues.”

Not just Mahe, her Italian colleague Federico is equally besotted with everything Indian. “I think Indian women have the most healthy and gorgeous hair. I heard it here for the first time that they apply hair oil regularly, which is not the norm in Italy or the US. And yesterday, I saw a couple on a two-wheeler on the street, the woman was wearing such bright colours like orange and blue, I loved it. I would love to buy Indian clothes.”

After eulogising India, Mahe and Federico take us on a trend trip on what’s the right look for the winters ahead. Says Federico, “No perms and curls this season please. Natural look is in, but by that I don’t mean flat straight hair. There should be volume on your crown and soft curls almost like tousled hair towards the ends.”
Mahe suggests, “Skin is in internationally. So wear pink lips, rose cheeks, mascara, charcoal eyes and you are set. Also your skin should be treated inside out. Exfoliater, moisturiser, sunscreen, concealer and shimmer mineral powder, in that order are a can’t-live-without.”

It’s different here
Since the artists are here for a couture week, how different they find Indian fashion sensibilities from the West? “I think couture in Italy, it’s more wearable than what they show on ramp in New York or even in India. Like here, I am working with an Indian duo and they have done three different collections in one show. That’s not the practice in NY. But I loved their garments,” Federico says.
