When it comes to high-end fashion, Raman Khanna is a resounding name. A preview of his collection was hosted by Vandy Mehra at Study By Janak, Karol Bagh.
“The collection has brought traditional trends back to India. It is good to see the techniques such as dabka mukesh aari.” Ethnic look is back in fashion so is gotta pati work, mukesh, sequins, stones in dabka and resham, crystal and Moghul motifs in understated shimmer. Patch work in solid colours is also in trend and for the contemporary women, says Vandy Mehra, Director, SBJ.
Raman Khanna’s Spring-summer collection has been designed with a romantic theme in mind. The collection showcases long flowy gowns in light breezy fabrics and pastel shades, delicately embellished with stones and thread.
At the launch, SBJ gave an opportunity to the visitors to meet the designer and view his couture collection; from opulent lehengas to modern-day minimalist silhouettes.
He uses rich fabrics with embroidery techniques such as ‘dabka mukesh aari etc. to adorn the lehengas and odhnis. The colour palette is mostly of vibrant reds and gold adding a sophisticated modern feel to the garments.
