Mumbai: After giving a new definition to fashion in her films and red carpet appearances, Kangana Ranaut, has now turned designer for a limited edition collection called 'Marquee' for fashion label, Vero Moda to create a collection that reflects her own style sensibility.
There are five broad themes -- Dandelion Dreams, Deep Lake, Red Velvet, Royal Enchantment and Gold Rush -- that make the "VERO MODA MARQUEE by Kangana Ranaut" collection. The designs include casual, formal and occasion wear.
"For the collection, I pretty much followed what globally is going to be trend. We have exciting categories with no confusion. There are dresses for brunches, gigs and many such special occasions so there is no confusion. You can just pick the right outfit and flaunt it," Kangana told IANS when asked about the USP of the collection.
The actress showcased her first show as a designer at Mehboob Studio here on Wednesday night and it had to be one big affair.
From celebrities like Dino Morea, Elli Avram taking the front rows to the thumping live music while the models sashayed down the ramp in glamorous outfits, brought spark to the night.
While Dandelion Dreams is a very dreamy collection with botanical design elements, exquisite and artfully crafted beaded embroidery in a buffet of diffused dandelion design patterns, Deep Lake takes inspiration from the colours of a deep lake.
Red Velvet is a classic theme with a very sexy and a bold feel. All the pieces in this story were very dramatic, accentuated with lace and embroidered in rich florals.
Inspired by royalty, Royal Enchantment had a rich mix of luxe embroideries in interesting geometric patterns.
Finally, Gold Rush takes its inspiration from the 'Midas touch' and sweeps golden hues into its mix, giving a metallic twist to the all over metallic gold fashion to minimalism.
