The Commerce graduate from Sydenham College, Mumbai, armed with a degree in fashion designing from Sophia Polytechnic, has  celebrated the beauty of the female form inspired by the Mediterranean in her collection this year. "I've been trying to tell a story by taking you on a journey that begins from the South of Italy that is free spirited, feminine and sensual in colours that range from ecru to midnight blue," says Mehta.

The designer has done away with the washed look and made denim so classy and chic that you can team it up with a simple tee during the day and change into a georgette blouse at night. The journey proceeds to Marrakesh where Mehta changes her colour palette to vibrant lacquer reds, wine with ponchos, jhola bags and jackets in textured fabrics. "My effort is to make informal chic garments into a kind of effortless look. Even the embroidery that is done here, does not overshadow the garment rather compliments it," says Mehta.

With her show slated for Monday, at The Grand, Mehta believes that the garments should speak for themselves. Another new addition in her collection are ankle-length tunics worn with ankle-length tie-up sandals: the idea is to create rusticness with the wooden heel contrasted with finished embroidered uppers.

Mehta has done embroideries for fashion houses like Jean Paul Gaultier and Celine. She's keen that designers get the right infrastructure in place: "Many designers don't even have the manufacturing facilities to take on large orders so these issues must be tackled before roping in buyers like Saks Fifth Avenue," she says.
