Not all of us may realise it, but after a certain age, women tend to automatically get fashion conscious. They begin thinking more about what clothes to wear, spending more time in front of the mirror and not to forget, the increase in the number of shopping hours! In a nutshell, fashion plays a huge role in a woman’s life and the process of understanding where one stands in terms of fashion is a journey in itself. Tracking this journey is what city-based Crimson House of Style did when they recently presented the collection ‘Her Story’, to celebrate the store’s second anniversary, in collaboration with Photon Kathas, Behind Woods and VBJ.
With everything from playful and colourful silhouettes to more mature evening gowns and work outfits presented on the ramp, founder of Crimson House of Style Geetha Solaraj showcased her versitality as a designer. Though each of the outfits had essential surprise elements, the good thing about the collection was that the clothes were extremely practical.
“Almost everyone can pick an outfit up and wear it. They’re not just for models,” said Solaraj. The definite highlight of the evening, no doubt, was the showstopper actor Sameera Reddy, who turned quite a few heads in an elaborate white wedding dress. Though the dress was well-hyped with a number of dazzling pre-wedding outfits, when Reddy walked on stage with the unconventional veil and an elegant trail of white frills behind her, the confidence with which she pulled the stunning dress off was something else. The wedding gown is indeed the highlight of the evening, reiterated an evidently-happy Solaraj, after the show. “We used about 80 metres of fabric for the dress,” she revealed before adding, “The veil is draped very differently and the dress has several layers, I don’t even remember how many!”
Singer Karthik and his band helped keep the energy levels up by doling out songs that celebrate women.
