The Indian Fashion week is a weak imitation of similar events which happen in the west Sans the inane controversy which includes at least
1.One wardrobe malfunction wherein the model accidentally/willingly flashes strap of her brassiere.
2.One indecent act involving a bollywood actor/actress sending flying kisses towards the media.
Indian Fashion tv fans just hate this event for the reasons best known to them.

Usage

*This is followed by censored glimpses of wardrobe malfunction which happened last year and the 7 second clip is repeated till you are out of yawns.
