There was romance, glamour and ethereal creations on the ramp when Shehla Khan presented her ‘Nouveau Victorian’ fashion symphony under her label ‘Shehlaa’ at the fashion week. Bollywood actor, Shruti Hasan walked with great style down the ramp, modeling an angelic pink lehenga with a micro choli.
Showcasing her concept of new Victorian fashion with inspirations from the Edwardian period, Shehla portrayed the great romance, passion and emotion of that regal era in her creations. Soft delicate hues had strong floral overtones. Lush fabrics like, tulle, silk and lace were splashed with ornate embroidery and adornments.
The silhouettes were a stylish mix of lehengas and dresses, which have been Shehla’s forté, while intricate detailing had turned her ensembles into timeless outfits. Opening the show with an amethyst net intricately embroidered mini, the show progressed to an off-shoulder net sequined mini-cum-gown. Soon a variety of sexy blouses in pretty pastels were teamed with long graceful lehengas.
A will-power drop-waist gown and another in old rose with a pale pink skirt, a mini with a maxi skirt around it were perfect evening glamour wear. The lattice work bolero and the various gypsy-style blouses with shimmering long skirts were ideal bridal trousseau options. For a wardrobe collection that is a great mix of romance from the Victorian times, mingled cleverly with contemporary touches, Shehla Khan’s line was a stunning offering.
