As cool as you please…

From dressing Hollywood starlets like Paris Hilton, Mischa Barten, Kim Kardasian for the red carpet to being adorned by every single pop royalty including Madonna, Jenifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Fergie, Katy Perry, on and off stage, Falguni & Shane have come a long way since the days of their advertising jobs in Mumbai.

Meeting for the first time 14 years ago, for a hand painting collaboration, this dynamic duo formed an alliance in the stars to give us the best of international style and finest of craftsmanship. The first time I witnessed their show 4 years ago, I was astonished at how an Indian label can personify International High Fashion. I was awed at the superiority of design and uniqueness in styling and to me that was the exemplar of fashion. Being my personal favourites, Falguni & Shane are undoubtedly the best at what they do and it was truly one of my high points working with them.

Their collection is definitely not for the ordinary, you have to be a bit phenomenal to carry off their cool, contemporary and edgy style. And hence, I present to you the best of Falguni & Shane Resort 2016 along with the poem Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou.

– Phenomenally yours,

Navya

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

– Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou
