18 or 80: These women prove age is just a number

January 31, 2018 18:47 IST

The half Full CURVE label creates for women who have been ignored by the fashion fraternity for a long time.

Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 kicked off with adventurous designers.

First up, were the GenNext designers, who were fresh and whimsical.

Then came designers Rixi Bhatia (of Quirkbox fame) and her sister Tinka and their half Full CURVE label, a brand created for women who have been ignored by most of the fashion fraternity for long.

The show -- devoted 'to the sexy, voluptuous, goddesses of the world' -- opened with a poem that spoke of promoting body positivity and encouraging women to be their own kind of beautiful.
