Slum Dog Millionaire kids walk ramp in WIFW
Mar '09
The slogan of the world became the slogan of the collection presented by Ashima & Leena at WIFW'09, and what a collection it was!

It had colour, it had feeling, it had freedom, it had motion and it had drama!

Predominantly in colours of winter, the vibrant reds, the placid blues, the fiery yellows, the cool greens and the all purpose blacks, the collection set the ramp on fire. As expected, the presentation had a heavy dose of embellishment, combined with geometric prints in contrasting colours. The fabric used were rich silks and velvets, finely pleated georgettes in black, white in metallic bronze, hand smocked creating a vibrant symmetry.

The dresses of varied length and silhouettes had a lot of fluid motion. The sleeves had interesting detailing and each garment showed multiple ranges of enhancements. There were a lot of variations in the bottoms comprising jodhpuri, patiala, dhoti, culottes, pyjamas, salwars. Trouser cut with the flair and the flow of the orient teamed with jackets with soft, sinuous lines, de-constructed and mysteriously enveloping kaftans in were also the part of the creation. There was also heavy usage of accordion pleats.

The presentation had its drama moments when the child actors from the movie Slum Dog Millionaire walked the ramp dressed in Ashima Leena garments and enticed all with their innocent smiles.
