The flyer advertising Unfolding, New Indian Textiles shows a runway model wearing a brightly coloured sari, fluorescent yellow platform heels and fuchsia stockings, gorgeous and so high fashion.

I was excited, pity then the show falls a little flat. Yes, the colours are vibrant and the garments impressive in both concept and construction but they are let down by the gallery display. The textiles look uninspired against the galleries pink walls and ho- hum on the mannequins.

Goodness, thats a pretty tough critique! but decide for yourself it's showing at RMIT gallery, 344 Swanston Street, Melbourne, till May 30.
