The Grand Finale of Lakme Fashion Week 2015 was an ABSOLUTE success story that needs to be shared.
The venue for the Grand Finale was carefully chosen to be the Bhau Daji Lad Museum and everything was planned, set and rehearsed for the 9:30 show.
At 4:30pm (5 hrs before showtime) I got an SMS message from the organizers that the venue has been moved to the Palladium Hotel due to unforeseen circumstances.
I heard that someone important had apparently objected to the use of that premises for a fashion show. I could hardly believe this… and more than anything, I was amazed at how well the organizers and Lakme team went about regrouping and executing Plan B. In a matter a few hours the entire lobby of the Palladium and its majestic grand staircase were transformed into the show venue. I saw the plan put into action and watched from afar how calmly the organizers in charge of this grand affair handled the situation. Kudos to you my dear friend and your team. The show did go on and it was nothing short of an ABSOLUTE success.
