Bonkers Indian fashion label Sofake (created by Mumbai-based chicks Sukriti Grover and Sapna Bhavnani) showed a style during Lakme Fashion Week last month called Kathorian - which stamps the mask-like make up of a traditional Indian dance called Kathakali with the frou-frou frills and extravagant shapes of the Victorian era (I love the mish-mash of styles so much I've used a tiny snapshot in this blog's logo). Their runway stuff may be a little hard to wear when you pop to the shops for a pint of milk, but the Spring/Summer 2012 collection is black-and-white magic. 

And by a happy coinkidink, Kiran, who models the Spring/Summer stuff below, also did a brilliant job of dyeing my hair deep purple last year, as she works in Bhavnani's fab Mumbai hair salon called Mad or Wot.
