Sushmita Sen walks to the tunes of ‘Umrao Jaan’ at Lakme Fashion Week 2018
Mumbai: Former beauty queen Sushmita Sen was a pleasure to watch when she literally went down the ramp on Umrao Jaan, hit song In aankhon ki Masti, sporting a lehenga, choli sparkling and diaphanous double Dupattas by brand Kotwara by Meera and Muzaffar Ali in Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018, here.

The designers showcased a collection titled Samanzar – a garden of Flowers, because of their Kotwara label. Sama Ali, daughter of Meera and Muzaffar Ali introduced Chikankari in a distinctive manner, that was rather incomparable.
The addition of zardozi, aari, and muqquaish into the delicate Chikankari embroidery, increased the design sensibilities to a contemporary level. The exotic royal occasion wear was royal apparel, dappled with a generous dose of pearls and sequins. The flowing capes and shrugs that adorned the classical bums and saris were visions of beauty like them drifted down the ramp on glamorous models. The beauty of the Awadhi art was heightened with the choice of fabrics such as fine muslin and transparent muslins which came into existence with the rich velvet and brocade.

Kurtas with billowy sleeves, capris teamed with angarkhas and dupattas, while perky boleros added allure at the serene kurtas sprinkled with silver dazzle. At times, cropped pants brought a sign of the fusion look which blended perfectly with the ensembles. The black line was magnificent with a lace capris and an embroidery that twinkled like the celebrities. The entry of a stunning white long, tiered, sheer, creation with gold inserts, edged with tassels was a royal tulle robe that floated down the runway and looked amazing along with a white embroidered kurti and tiered skirt.
This was an ensemble which was indeed fit for royalty. Shararas looked royal when they were teamed with kurtas and dutatas from ethereal elegance, wide palazzos, a corset flooring length kurta with a mini cape and saris with bell-sleeved blouses looked as fresh as the morning dew on a summer’s day. Adding more drama, there were black saris with ground kissing net capes, a quartet of lehenga/choli/bolero/dupatta in ivory and black and a Kurt with tiered tulle sharara and a matching dupatta were creations that one can only dream of.
