Ashdeen brings retro oriental glamour to Jabong Stage

Mar '14
Bringing to centre stage retro oriental glamour inspired by the beautiful Hollywood actress, Anna May Wong, Ashdeen Lilaowala’s collection aptly called “Orient Express” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 had all the drama, excitement and exotic touches.
 
Opening the show was the sensational voice of opera singer, Delna Mody whose rendition of “O Solo Mio” and “Come Back to Sorrento” through the display evoked thunderous applause from the audience.
 
Giving the cheongsam or quipao a New Age touch, Ashdeen turned it into body-con creations with glittering metallic work, added floral Chantilly lace and topped them with Mandarin collars, frog closures and beaded fringes. 
 
There were sensuous touches for this ultra-evening wear line as peonies and chrysanthemums were splashed in bunches while prancing peacocks were in the forefront with intricate stitch work. Colours remained relevant to the Oriental theme as cream, fuchsia, Mandarin orange, black, ruby red and gold highlighted the column and hourglass silhouettes.
 
Ashdeen opened the show with an ecru sheath with red centre embroidery followed by a white bubble dress with 3D roses strategically placed on the body. Orange/fuchsia sari with Chinese Gara embellished choli, gold lace sari with mandarin collar blouse, stunning black lace sheath with tonal embroider and the blood red lace long-sleeved column dress recreated the mood perfectly. 
 
Silver pants with net layers were worn with sheer blouse, while a red sari with a majestic gold peacock on the pallav was gorgeous. The final black lace gown with shimmering sequins and multicoloured roses down the front was a superb end to a show of great elegance, style and innovative embellishment placements.
 
Fabrics were luxurious lace, organza, lush crepe, brocade, satin and gold lamé, which were highlighted by cutwork veiling and halter necklines. Mention must be made of the very oriental ornaments by Zariin Jewellery featuring necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings in crushed gold or silver plating with precious gems.
 
For that Far Eastern retro chic, Ashdeen Lilaowala’s “Orient Express” will put women on a stylish fashion track anywhere in the world.
