Those parties where the city’s glitterati flocked are increasingly becoming rare. It’s that time of the year when the A-listers are returning from their annual summer escapade to London, Ibiza, Mykonos and other exotic destinations and are taking it easy. Parties have taken a toll in Delhi. The real social crowd now socialise discreetly at their farmhouses in close-knit circles. Those big-bang parties are gone and they blame it on random crowd, gate-crashers and paid-editorial for the death of Delhi’s happening soirees. All we have now are corporate launches followed with parties. Store, brand and club launches are too commercial and do not attract the real party-hearties.
So what we see are new breed of party-capers where the crowd is rather non-descript and the evening rarely has much to write home about. We went for this so-called ‘fashion party’ and it was lack-luster.
When the guest list has folks like Bigg-Boss dropouts, self-proclaimed designers, omnipresent cosmetologists, tacky makeup divas and loads of fashion victims, you sorely miss the rocking parties Delhi used to have. Anyway, here is one such party that didn’t impress us much.
