Meera Ali launches her prêt line with daughter

New Delhi: Designer Meera Ali, who is known for her minimalistic yet elegant collections, launched her prêt line along with her younger daughter Sama on the final day of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Sunday.

The collection was launched under her label Kotwara, a joint venture of Meera and husband and filmmaker Muzaffar Ali. However her new range was titled Kotwara by Meera Ali.

Asked about the absence of her husband`s name from the label, Meera said "This is our ready to wear line which I want to bring in with my daughter Saba and Muzaffar is busy spending his time on his couture line so he took a break this time to give his 100 percent on that. I think by next season, one will see an absolutely different collection from us."

The designer showcased a collection which was mix of tunics, shirts, trousers and jackets made of wool, suede, chiffon and crepe. The colour palette ranged from black, blue, grey, brown to burgundy and emerald green.

"The collection targets young modern women who want to be confident and look glamorous without going overboard. The designs have minimal embroidery but maximum structure. I hope my daughter creates a place in the fashion industry through this collection," Meera said.

Like many designers this season, she also chose to add glamour quotient with actor Irrfan Khan, who walked for the label in a beige suit and green muffler.

The 49-year-old, who is known for his introvertish nature, confidently walked the ramp.

"I am the admirer of her work and it is always privilege and honour to wear her clothes. I also appreciate the way she utilises design aesthetics to bring out nice collection," he sai
