Monisha Jaising’s “Riviera” collection, took me back to the future at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 with an inspired glamorous line.
Focusing on the 1960’s and 1970’s Monisha Jaising’s collection offered her trade mark kurtis paired with leather mirrorwork pants and minis, relaxed flared pants and some really wildly printed pop coloured dresses that could move with great ease from beach to brunch. I personally loved the line of gowns, minis, racer back dresses and halters with the heavy zardozi bands. A line of sensuous swimwear and luxuriously body-hugging gowns were the highlights of the show.
Monisha’s specialty – the gowns had deep plunging necklines; hip-high slits; lots of backless interest with sexy drapes and gold corsets to add drama to a black gown. The three white long creations with metallic insets in strategic places had a Riviera goddess vibe. Stopping the show was International model Ujjwala Raut who sashayed onto the ramp in a breathtaking sheer net crystal drenched, long sleeved gown.
A line definitely not for the demure wallflower.
