Shilpa Reddy showcased an ethereal collection titled ‘Moon Lit Sand’ inspired by the moon at the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 on Sunday
Staying true to the essence of the range, the colour palette comprised gold, silver, white, sand, royal blue, copper, grey and nudes for a timeless edge. The Indo-western range showcased easy-to-wear, timeless silhouettes like skirts, jackets, tops, blouses, capes, pants and lehenga cholis that floated down the ramp in luxurious fabrics like malka and khadi silk. Floral motifs, thread work, embroidery and subtle texturing added to the fresh, fun and flirty vibe of the outfits. The designer played with each form, adding a whimsical western touch to traditional Indian outfits.
Embellishments like beads, sequins and crystals were used to add a brilliant, luminous effect to each piece - a reflection of the moon and were balanced with a solid strip of colour at the bottom. Some of the pieces which stood out were a unique pre-stitched sari with pants in tangerine with a bead encrusted blouse; while a shimmering gold blouse stole the spotlight as a fashionably functional separate that could be paired with pants, shorts or a skirt.
Lastly, the show stopper, actress Nimrat Kaur known for her role in the movie Lunchbox took the catwalk in a stunning forest green embroidered lehenga teamed with a half sleeved jacket worn over a sensual low cut blouse. Beautiful, elegant and eternal, Shilpa Reddy’s collection ‘Moon Lit Sand’ is sure to have any fashionista feeling like a Goddess.
