Nargis Fakhri, Shazahn Padamsee on fashion week ramp
New Delhi: B-town newbies Nargis Fakhri and Shazhan Padamsee turned up on the last day of Wills India Fashion Week (WIFW) to walk the ramp for young designers Sakshee Pradhan and Sulakshana Monga respectively.
Nargis, who made her debut last year with `Rockstar` opposite Ranbir Kapoor, looked chic in a silk sequined beige blouse and pants.
"It was a different experience all together. Being a show stopper added an extra oomph factor. I was completely transformed into a glam diva. I felt so glamorous that I don`t have words to describe it," said Nargis.
When asked about her upcoming projects, the 32-year-old said, "A lot of things are happening in my professional life, but I don`t want to talk about it right here," she added.
Pradhan`s collection featured modern designs in off-whites blended with muted shades of beige and ending with muted golds. The clothes were accesorised with beige specs and large earphones. The materials used were silk, satin and net.
"This collection was a tribute to the woman of today, who is multi faceted, strong and intellectual yet very much feminine, who loves to flaunts her style with ease and elan. Nargis is my muse as she represents everything in my collection," the designer said.
Shazahn walked the ramp in an ivory dress - with net, frills and a train - for designer Sulakshana, whose fall winter collection was all about colours, textures and patterns.
"I am feeling like a princess. This dress is a piece of art. It is a young collection and it is so different as she has experimented with Indian and Western style. I was unsure if I would look good but the moment I was on the runway, it was amazing," Padamsee said.
Mewcomer designer Tahera Peeran, who also showcased her autumn-winter collection, brought along her one-year-old daughter Aalia at the show. Her collection `New Slang` showed the pairing of opposites like fluidity with structure, masculine with feminine, austerity with quirky.
"I drew inspiration from squiggle art translated into contemporary, edgy batik and shibori prints. The color palette is a mix of navy, teal, nude, sage, lime and coral in khadi silk, dupion and silk satin," Peeran said.
