A ' hot and popular' flea market catches a chill.

IT might have been the winter chill because the " back by popular demand" Flea by Nite, at Olive, Qutub, on Wednesday didn't turn out to be actually hot.

The highlight of the evening was designer Ruchika Chaudhary's very flirty, feminine collection. Excitement filled the guests as models strutted down the white pebbled courtyard in her designs. For the fashionistas, there was Amoksha, footwear by Bella Couture.

At this blingy event, we caught up with Charlette Wilson, a 23- year- old from the US who was volunteering with the Swechha, an NGO which works for the environment- related causes. She was at the stall selling vegetable dye bags.

On a Eat, Pray, Love mission, this young chemist told us that this was her second visit to India and that she was hoping to figure out what to do with her life.

The venue also hosted an exhibition of photographs by documentary and travel photographer, Vijay Tonk, that seemed to have the overarching theme of India.

We expected to talk to the bartender, Iona, but couldn't as she was busy rustling up cocktails and was also a tad bit shy. Her mojitos, though, were absolutely fabulous.

The only thing missing from this flea market was what a flea market has -- bonhomie and conviviality.

We wish the organisers better luck for their next outing on December 15.
