RUNWAY: LAKME FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014
Sonaakshi Raaj is better known for her trademark saree gowns which compose of elegant floor skimming gowns enwrapped with material over the shoulder to give the appearance of a saree.
At this year’s Winter/Festive fashion week held in Mumbai, Raaj encompassed in her collection gracefully designed saree gowns as well as jumpsuits, calve length dresses with thigh-high cuts, beautifully embroidered blazers worn with harem pants, jodhpurs and an assortment of striking bodices with delicate beading, crochet work and multicoloured mosaic prints. The showstopper of the collection was the maroon fishtail gown worn by Bollywood star Malaika Arora Khan.
Colours ranged from pastel shades such as peach, baby pinks and blues, mint green and a selection of other tones with maroon red, dusty gold, shimmering silver, black and navy. The colours combined stunningly with the silky draped fabric and the layers of tulle.
In her captivating collection, Raaj demonstrated the diverse ways of wearing sarees without stepping too much out of your comfort zone. Raaj has successfully broadened the choice of attires for modern Indian women with her sleekly fitted ensembles that fuses together Indian and westernised clothing.
Infused in the white bead is water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. In the black bead, mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Separating the two beads are clear beads, representative of the story we all have to tell. Life moves through cycles, find your balance.
