Mumbai: Riddhi Mehra known for her Indian aesthetics and unique take on fashion showcased her new collection ‘Mystical Nuit’ at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014.
Shades of beige, blue and black dominated the colour palette and were inspired by the luminescence of the night sky when graced by stars and the moon.
The designer kept her signature look intact and worked on creating structured forms on flowing silhouettes as an extension of her classic designs.
Fusion wear took centre stage with more focus on westernised styles comprising skirts, blouses, jackets, pants along with Indo-Western dresses and saris, which were crafted in luxurious fabrics like silk, georgette, chiffon, net and raw silk.
Traditional embellishment techniques such as resham, zardozi and beadwork helped to balance each piece and added just the right touch of sparkle.
The showstopper, Lisa Hayden of the movie “Queen” fame, left the crowd in awe as she made her way down the runway in a ravishing white and midnight blue gown accentuated by a trail while the bodice flaunted asymmetrical sleeves and floral detailing.
Sexy, stylish and sassy, ‘Mystical Nuit’ by Riddhi Mehra was fashion forward and excitingly experimental.
