Monisha is a sexy, sparkling success
Monisha Jaising fused together the incongruent worlds of va-va-voom glamour and sporty energy to create a collection that was alive, femininely seductive, and full of verve, incorporating sexy halter dresses, low-waisted knee-length pleated skirts, tunic dresses, t-shirts, tanks and spaghetti tops, kurtas and pants.
Using a sporty detailing in form of three-colour striped rib knit trims at the neckline, armhole, waist lines, and the length of the trouser seams, on the delicately embroidered garments, she came up with an entirely new look that was beautiful and elegant but had a distinctly young, fun look.
The embroideries used were equally interesting - cheeky in their use of traditional floral patterns in black in conjunction with sassy sequined tattoo motifs of roses and barbed wires on the white, salmon, soap and red coloured mul-muls.
There were other knits as well, in heather grey and white, which were embellished with zardozi embroidery, and teamed with the dresses and kurtas. Her day wear range in henna, pink sugar, powder blue coloured poppy prints were used effectively to make short baby doll dresses, draw string dresses, and halters. Another line had butterscotch coloured silks printed with delicate floral patterns, which were combined with black-white checks, and rib detailing. A line in pink prints of stripes and photographic prints embellished with crystals followed, as did a line of 'khadi' and jewel encrusted daisy prints in blue, rose and white, both of which had halter and button down blouses, and slim pants. The formal eveningwear had kurtas in gold dust coloured sheers with gold and silver sequined embroideries in circular patterns, teamed with silver printed floral pants in beige.
Sexy, sparkly, cheeky and spotty, Monisha Jaising did it again.
