Fashion first and orange burst

It was a ‘fashion first’ for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 with the opening show by resort wear specialist Monisha Jaising on board Costa neoClassica.
Models had a lot of legwork to do as they walked across, up and down the long, 360-degree ramp on the deck of the cruise liner by the Arabian Sea. From tantalising swimwear to glamorous cocktail and evening creations, you saw them all.
From the very luxe opening entry of two sexy silver micro-minis, Monisha’s collection cruised through a line of garments that made ideal resort wear statements. Embellishments took centre stage on the opulent fabrics that ranged from heavy bonded satin, wool crepe and Italian organza as they gleamed with chikankari and metal encrusted chain mail.
On view was a profusion of dramatic black, gleaming gold, sedate grey, pristine white, rose pink and rose tan that occasionally came alive with vibrant bursts of fiery red, vibrant orange and sexy fuchsia.
Monisha’s creations were aimed at the jet-setting dare-to-wear-anything woman who experiments with her sartorial options. Bringing in a hint of ethnic chic, she presented elegant pre-stitched figure-hugging cocktail saris that vied for attention with the sensuous billowy skirts teamed with body-contouring bodices.
And the shining showstopper was Sonakshi Sinha in a sunset orange, waist-clinching, one-shoulder structured gown with a flirty hemline and an exaggerated voluminous trail. Yes, the creation drew inspiration from the sunset glow.
