Slipping bustiers and busted zippers during last week's Lakme Fashion Week here prompted the state government Tuesday to order an official probe into the sartorial goof-ups.

"We will inquire if the (wardrobe malfunction) incidents were accidents or deliberate acts," Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil told reporters.

"Necessary action would be initiated against the designers and organisers if it is found that these were deliberate acts.

"If it is established that the acts were deliberate, then a criminal case can be filed against the designers and organisers," he said.

Patil has already directed city Police Commissioner A.N. Roy to check all video clips of the fashion show and find out if the malfunctions were a "deliberate, indecent act".

Model Carol Gracias's top slipped off on the ramp during a show by designer Bennu Sehgall during the fashion week here Saturday.

This was followed by the "malfunctioning" of model Gauhar Khan's zip the next day during a show by designer Lascelles Symmons.

Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said the incident "hurt sensibilities", especially those of women.

Earlier Tuesday, the issue was raised in the state legislative council by Shiv Sena legislators Pramod Navalkar and Neelam Gorhe, who demanded an inquiry into the wardrobe malfunctions.
