Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2009 witnessed a controversial wardrobe malfunction when a model from Belgium named Debby was showcasing Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh’s collection. She was wearing a blue dress and one of its sleeves slipped off her shoulder, leaving her assets exposed.
The model quickly pulled it back on, however and finished the round with poise. In 2006, the same incident happened with Indian models Carol Gracias and Gauhar Khan.
The issue has created a furor, as claims are once more being made that such malfunctions are deliberately staged to garner attention from the media. Model Carol Gracias experienced a similar incident — she was left topless on stage when her Bennu Sehgall outfit came undone. Two days later, former Miss India Gauhar Khan’s skirt zipper split on the ramp, also revealing more than was intended, as she modelled for Lascelles Symons.
