It’s been a wet and cold week but the sun had to shine on Sunday. As the ladies of Sydney were getting their 70s and 80s gear ready, Esha Sharma and Malti Kumar were busy organising an event to promote womanhood and friendship, but with style and glamour.

Their hard work did pay off as Sakhi celebrations at Croatian Club, Punchbowl got better, bigger and more glamourous! This year the theme was the 70s or 80s and the attendees left no stone unturned in dressing to the hilt. The navel revealing sarees, polka dots, tight churidaar pants with colourful headbands, bell bottoms, maxis, puffy hairdos and bold eye make-up ”“ the divas donned it all. You could spot a Mumtaz, Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini and Parveen Babi in every corner of the hall.

For the shopohlics, there were stalls of henna, clothes and jewellery. But this year the most popular area was the themed photo booths which the glam dolls just could not resist! As the ladies started dancing to the pulsating Bollywood music, some of them were happy posing in their trendy outfits at the retro photo booths.
