Mumbai: Stunning in a black gown with a transparent back, Sushmita Sen turned the show stopper for Amit Aggarwal as Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 rolled off Tuesday with a display of the latest collection of Aggarwal and Masaba Gupta.
"I feel sexy wearing this and that`s what Amit`s collection is all about. When I first saw his collections, I asked him which is the show stopper outfit as each and every outfit looks like a show stopper outfit. I am so proud that we have such designers," said Sushmita.
The soul of Aggarwal`s collection lay in incorporating tribal influences like weaving techniques, stripped tattoos and structured jewelry, while a modern interpretation of these ideas was taken forward as menswear details found their way on to couture dresses in a beautiful synthesis of androgyny with feminity.
"I think this idea started with the concept of women who lived their life on their own terms and that is when I thought about Sushmita Sen. The collections are contemporary traditional in a modern way," said Aggarwal.
The Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 will continue till Aug 24.
