Mumbai, Apr 1 (ANI): Fashion designer Anamika Khanna showcased bridal-wear at the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week here last evening.
Models sashayed the ramp in Indian traditional drape sarees and lehnga's for Khanna's collection.
The designer weaved together Indian heritage with the modern eclectic touch.
Khanna received applause from the audience for the dark colours and contemporized traditional textures of the ensembles.
"We have used a lot of Indian elements and have worked on many Indian textiles and handicrafts. Especially, a regional fabric of Kerala 'Mundu', which is used by mostly all the Keralites. We have tried to conceptualize it. We have developed all texture using traditional garments and with all the Indian elements we have used some contemporary elements as well," said Khanna.
Meanwhile, Bollywood model-turned actor Mugdha Godse walked the ramp for designer Narendra Kumar, whose collection was inspired by the young women caught under moral policing by some rightwing Hindu outfits.
Godse walked the ramp in flamboyant multi-coloured off-shoulder gown and said that she wanted to completely support the cause of moral policing.
"By just doing moral policing you can't stop us and put us behind the doors saying that you can't do this you can't do that. We live in a democratic country, so we exactly can decide what we want to do. I support this completely," said Godse.
Edward Hopper, an American artist known for his lush usage of colour and realistic portrayal of America, inspired Kumar's colour palette.
Kumar's collection was based on modern cuts and silhouettes and the ensembles included the luxurious aspects of specially woven Indian fabrics. (ANI)
