    Shirlene’s rendition of this designer is spot-on.
    As for the designer! I happened to be in Chennai, and caught his show at Le Royal Méridien, I must say, very very chic.
    Sidney Sladen remind’s me of a horse in a burning barn, and when those doors open…..look out.
    This one’s going to knock you off your feet.
