Creating an enchanting collection for cocktails, wedding and festive events, Arpita Mehta’s “The Golden Hour” was a sensuous offering at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. When the events are glamorous, the collection has to match their splendour, so Arpita selected raw silk, tabi silk and chiffon in dramatic hues of gold, Sindoor, emerald and finally stunning black. The embellishments were elaborate and lavish as intricate mirrorwork and cut Dana embroidery along with salli fringes and innovative suede appliqués added to the highlights of the ensembles.
To further accentuate the glitz and glamour of the creations, Arpita brought in dull gold work. The sexy silhouettes, the fluid flared creations and the dramatic styling heightened the fashion quotient.
It was a veritable feast for the eyes as the first model in a stunning gold gown glided on the ramp. Soon there was a profusion of glamorous Red Carpet entries like the off-shoulder choli with an emerald green raw silk dazzling Lehenga, brown layered kurta with gold bolero and tiered Sharara. The Grecian gown was over sleek pants, while the printed draped pant, cowl salwars with a tiny choli with long trail and the black deep ‘V’ neckline kurta were eye catchers.
Ending the show was ravishing Bollywood beauty Malaika Arora Khan, who sashayed down the ramp in an arresting gold off-shoulder choli with a panelled net trail and fitted slit long embroidered skirt
For the Winter/Festive 2015 season Arpita Mehta’s “The Golden Hour” will create the perfect glamorous ambience for bridal as well as occasion wear.
