Verve heralded the fashion season by hosting a lush, wine-paired, pre-fashion week lunch. The location was Indian Accent, the recently opened desi retaurant with a twist, at The Manor, New Delhi. Guests from the fashion, design and art fraternities were welcomed by Verve editorial director Parmesh Shahani and Old World Hospitality Pvt Ltdís Rohit Khattar. The sunny yet cool weather was perfect for some pre-lunch mingling on The Manorís verdant lawns and outdoor verandah, after being suitably fortified with chilled glasses of Moet, of course. Since fittings for the Wills Lifestyle and Delhi Fashion Weeks were on in full swing, several designers popped in and out throughout the afternoon, making envious comments about those that could stay. Cíest la vie. The party eventually shifted inside the restaurant to feast on the special tasting menu that included foie gras stuffed galauti kebabs, smoked salmon thayar satham and panko crusted bhanwar mirch stuffed with goat cheese mousse. By 5 p.m. there were a lot of stuffed, pleasantly buzzed guests spread out on the Manor lawns, finding it very hard to put one foot ahead of the other, and make their way home. Yes, the fashion season could now finally begin!
