The Delhi Times Fashion Week witnessed a phenomenal end as ace fashion designer, Ritu Beri closed the event with her finale show.
Actor-director-producer, Divya Khosla Kumar walked as the showstopper for the show. The stunning diva took the ramp in an intricately embroidered olive-toned lehenga skirt and a peplum choli of the same colour tone. With an olive-toned lace dupatta as the veil and ornate mattha patti
, Divya looked radiant as a neo-aged culturally-ambiguous queen.
Known for her visually-driven cultural amalgamation in her designs, Ritu Beri’s latest offering “Ferghana Fantasy’’ was no different. The collection was a fresh take on traditional Indian wear with a dash of design elements from Uzbekistani culture. With a spectacular display of Ikat, antique silver jewelry and brazen use of tribal paint – the collection reminded us of a free-spirited gypsy princess but at the same time, it was nothing like anything we had ever seen before.
The amalgamation was an attempt to promote the idea of mixing Uzbekistani ikat
with Indian fabrics. Ritu even ensured that all the ikats
used for the collection were flown over in Indian from the Central Asian country.
Ruffled hemlines, vibrant colour, a juxtaposition of varied ikat
weave and embroidery contributed to the collection’s highly striking visual appeal.
We're honestly still reeling from the visual treat we just witnessed!
