RIDHI MEHRA REFLECTED A STUNNING COLLECTION AT JABONG STAGE DURING LAKME FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.
Youthful designer, Ridhi Mehra showcased a timeless spectrum of clothing titled ‘A Mirror Affaire’ at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.
Taken by the intriguing interior decoration of the Sheesh Mahal – the palace of unbelievable beauty, Ridhi incorporated tastefully the essence of the palace onto her garments. Based on oriental charms juxtaposed with the subtleness of the romantic West; a fusion was artistically created to merge the romantic era and the craftsmanship of the Mughals.
Dainty soft-powdered hues like blush, nude, peach were balanced with bolder tones of mint green, orange and dreamy white dominated the colour palette.
While staying true to her signature look, the designer played around and achieved an elegant, refreshing mix of aari and mirror work brought to life with hints of zardosi. The compilation, this season consisted of grand anarkalis, jumpsuits, capes, jackets with peplums, saris, blouses and cholis.
The designer also played with a unique concept of embellishing see-through fabric with flower motifs, which appeared to float on one’s body in an almost dream-like manner.
Embellishments comprised rich thread work, which graced each form, as Grecian drapes helped to soften the feel of the collection.
Riches from the orient such as Chanderi silk, georgette, chiffon, satin and net were used to create the airy feminine silhouettes radiating a delicate tease.
The showstopper was lovely Bollywood star of the film; “Fugly” Kiara Advani who graced the runway in a gorgeous green choli, with the skirt enriched with several layers of embroidered fabric.
Footwear by Dune London and jewellery by Prerto added to the beauty of the collection.
‘The Mirror Affaire’ by Ridhi Mehra was a bold step towards the romantic mirage of a woman, who moves towards glory.
