City-based designer Shilpa Reddy is all set to showcase her work at a fashion show in New York. But, that’s not the only thing that is exciting. The show will be held at sparkling ramp on a magnificent glass spectacular floating boat atop the Hudson river. It is going to be a visual fiesta, complete with a backdrop of New York’s hypnotic skyline and iconic masterpieces that include the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center.
The edgy and multi-talented Shilpa Reddy is all geared up to showcase her collection ‘Floral Geometry’ for Jessica Minh Anh’s show this year in New York on March 19.
Catwalks on unconventionally beautiful venues are quite a Minh Anh thing - a marriage of art between fashion, beauty, and architecture.
‘Shilpa Reddy’ has been a part of Minh Anh’s J Autumn Show 2014, where she became the first Indian designer to showcase her collection at The Eiffel Tower, Paris. Known for her ‘understated glamour’, Shilpa has come up with a unique collection yet again. Highlighting the beauty of geometric ikkat and blossoms of spring, this collection is sure to blanket the viewers in awe.
“Feels elated to present this collection as an Indian designer, indeed, a proud moment for the fashion industry,” says Shilpa Reddy. The traditional Pochampally weave flirts with floral inspirations to create this mesmerising amalgamation. A century old technique of colourful threads intricately woven on traditional looms by skillful weavers is used to create the Telangana Ikkat or tie-and-dye pattern. Her outfits are created using quintessentially Indian fabrics and styled to suit New York’s fashion palate,” she adds.
“The fashionista is super excited for the New York event. Shilpa Reddy emerges to be an expert in juggling her talents. She is already off to a great start this year with J Spring 2015, followed by Lakme Fashion Week on March 22,” says actress Regina Cassandra.
