As we jostled to reach for the show, the sheer enormity of the stage and set had us spell bound. Trust a genius like Rajesh Pratap Singh to not make any compromises when it comes to building up an enchanting aura. With reflective mirrors lined with candles across the runway, we were both, bedazzled and glued to the stage as models sashayed down the ramp in their finest. The stage was rightly inspired by ‘Illusions.’
If there was ever a way to showcase the season’s favourite trends and spin them with a futuristic twist, Rajesh’s show was just that. The line was sexy, understated, and yet bold and daring in parts. When did plastic bionic arms and doubly oversized sunnies look good on the ramp? They did at Rajesh’s show. From high sheen metallic skirts paired with powder pink sheer jackets to a series of elegant LBDs with silver rose motifs, we devoured each design as though it was a unique discovery from the lab.
As brand ambassador for Lakmé, while we had called dibs on the predictability of the showstopper, we knew that she is one that we never tire of. Setting the ramp on fire and élan, Kareena Kapoor looked every bit like a royal princess with a dark touch. Wearing the couturier’s deep V-neck, low back gown with a scintillating slit, she offered us a spectacle that concluded the week with much aplomb.
