Mumbai: Ridhi Mehra’s collections have always moved with the fashion-forward trends, season after season. For Lakmé Fashion Week 2020 Digital First Season Fluid Edition, Ridhi’s collection called “Reflections” moved from modifying to modernizing the fashion story. The leitmotif of the line was the ever-popular mirror work that was balanced with innovative designs and techniques.
The inspiration was the royal heritage of Kutch that brought forth the characteristic of bohemian craft, in a riot of the color power play but suited to the contemporary silhouettes. Keeping mirror work as the focal point on the ensembles, Ridhi fused in mixed elements of Gota Patti and zari on the silks as well as the prints that highlighted the fabrics like chiffon and organza.
Offering a variety of silhouettes to suit the ethnic and western dresser, Ridhi unveiled swirling anarkalis and luxuriously embellished saris and then moved to stylish jumpsuits with interesting design directions.
“I’m immensely enthused to be a part of this new-age Digital Fashion Show! This lineup is fantastic because of many reasons. The most important being having to work on it, unconventionally, with a pandemic looming around that brought a multitude into perspective. Tons of love to my entire team that made it a seamless experience with safety kept at priority. Be there – or should I say log in to be there!” says Ridhi Mehra.
The grand festive and bridal assortment was fashion regalia of color and craft. The lines of the contemporary sharara and tunic; set the pace for the looks to follow. A glamorous, glitzy, array of sumptuous red off-shoulder gowns, hot pink draped sari versions, and a majestic ivory vision with shoulder trains added to the bridal wear offering. The various options in pre-draped saris will thrill the trousseau shoppers, while the floor-skimming anarkalis, lehengas, cholis, and dupattas will complete the wedding wear shoppers’ list.
Ridhi Mehra’s “Reflections” collection will be a great fashion display for the festive season when buyers will want to highlight their personal style quotient with exotic creations.
