Scintillating style diva Kareena brings end to LFW evening
Mar '14
The Grand Finale show by top couturier Rajesh Pratap Singh presented by Lakmé Absolute was a scintillating fashion offering that concluded Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Raising the curtain on this season’s style statement, Lakmé along with Rajesh Pratap Singh created a visual treat of fashion and makeup. It was all about high octane fashion and makeup trends that will excite fashion enthusiast during the coming season. 
Inspired by ‘Illusions’ – Lakmé’s statement for the season, the finale was a magnificent interplay of light on colour and was a true depiction of Rajesh’s signature style. Complementing the outfits, the makeup was conceptualized with the new Lakmé Absolute Illusion range, comprising of eight metallic shimmer eye shadows monos and four limited edition nail colors. 
Mirrors framed with lit diyas ran through the centre of the ramp while giant trees made an impressive décor and turned the lawns of the Hotel Grand Hyatt into a magical wonderland. To match the glamour and glitz of the Lakmé Absolute Illusion range, Rajesh Pratap Singh’s collection titled “Illusion” played with contrasts as sheer fabrics moved gracefully from relaxed shapes in pastels to stronger solids. Pastels and metallic yarns came in perfect harmony to move into sheer glass weaves and then culminated in black and midnight shades with shimmering silver highlights.
The fabric base exclusively created for; the “Illusions” collection had woven experiments in silver, stainless steel, paper, aluminium, hand woven and spun khadi, silk and linen. The “Illusion” story also brought trademark white shirts by Rajesh Pratap Singh as well as bias churi sleeves, the rustic bundi vest, structured jackets and the veil in more contemporary forms. The traditional adda (frames) hand embroidery method was tweaked to include metal. 
The show opened with models wearing lit helmets with transparent graphic footwear in the iconic white Rajesh Pratap Singh shirts. Soon the pastel palette emerged with skirts, coats, jackets, glittering dresses, blousons; pinafores, coat dresses as well as shimmering shifts.
The black section was dazzling with mirror work on waistcoats, capris, jackets, tunics, tiny boleros, high waist trousers, belted shirt waisters, and gowns with placement mirrors and horizontal metal stripes. Men’s wear was stylish with jackets, Bermudas, kurtas, blousons with interesting colour blocking and detailing.
The finale was a burst of fireworks around the ramp as Kareena Kapoor Khan, the brand ambassador of Lakme glided in a fabulous long sleeved V-neck, low back glittering black gown.
