Fashion designer Nikasha launches 'Raat ki Rani' line
Mar '13
Inspired by the glamour and baroque style of the 1920’s combined with the bohemian look of the 70’s, Raat ki Rani celebrates the spirit of a playful femme fatale. The joie de vivre of the jazz age mingles with the vibe of the disco era in a vibrant, energetic collection that reflects the flirtier side of the ‘Nikasha’ woman’s persona. True to her signature aesthetic, this collection explores Nikasha’s core work and goes further in-depth in the woman she likes to portray - experimental, empowered and sensual.

Her rooted desi-ness is injected with a dose of glamour; the shapes are sexier, the embellishments are bolder, the mood is stronger. Carrying on its tradition of ‘contemporary Indian high prêt’, this season, the house offers distinctive styles like sharara jumpsuits, choli-tanks, mini-kurtas, sadri-waistcoats andkanjari-vests – modern interpretations of traditional and historic costumes.

Nikasha will also introduce her version of the three-piece suit with a waist coat, a fitted shirt and a dhoti inspired skirt. Look out for deep backs with herringbone weaves, biased ruching and sharp tailoring to accentuate silhouettes and drawstrings just where they are the least expected.

The collection also includes see-through sheaths, hand-woven saris and Patiala pants in sensuous and rich fabrics like silk, organza, hand-woven tissue, Chanderi, brocade and velvet. The designs and fabrics are enhanced by luscious colours like Rani pink, Sindoori red, Emerald green and Midnight blue.

Accessories like batua-slings and nimbu-mirchi charms add the essential fun elements for an evening of dancing under the strobes, preferably with ghungroos on.

The latest line will be available at select stores in India, London, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Dubai.

About Nikasha: “A Contemporary fashion brand celebrating Indian craftsmanship”
