With Facebook and Instagram down she wanted me to see what she was having...was one of the hundreds of memes that sprung as Facebook along with Instagram and Whatsapp went down for over six hours. Twitteratti had full on fun, taking time to poke jokes at the social media addiction. “With WhasApp & Instagram down last night, I was able to talk to my husband for a while.

To integrate it Valentino had models sashay down the marketplace before making it to the showspace. into another dimension, to present and showcase one form of art against the backdrop of another is a largerthan-life experience which the intimacy of a ramp cannot achieve. There is a larger context, a more fulfilling artistic showcase that adds to the grandeur. And with these strange Covid times open spaces help to maintain the safety protocol,” says Jayesh Sachdev, founder/creative director Quirk Box. In the new normal, the desire to do things out- of-thebox has sure gained momentum. “Add to that fashion, which is all about being hatke – be it the creations or presentations, visual appeal is a significant parameter,” says designer Harpreet Anand, who hails the new format and feels that unconventional locales for fashion shows is the way forward. “Fashion is universal and the fact that it is now being taken to the masses is definitely a positive move,” says Saaksha Bhat from the label Saaksha & Kinni. “Those, who would never have an access to a private runway, can now be a front-row spectator.” Saaksha, however, misses the old order too. “Having said that, the live buzz which you get from an intimate setting is unparalleled. The chosen guest list – those who are loyal to your brand, those you look up to, and those influential people not to be missed at the front row, all these tokens make a live traditional show what it is.”
