Krishna Mehta redefines her design with romance & dreams

Mar '08
Krishna Mehta's theme for Autumn/Winter 2008 at Lakme Fashion Week revolved around romance and dreams which gave the designer ample scope to allow her creativity to be pushed to the ultimate limits.

Blending proportions, prints and embroideries her men's and women's wear collections had her trademark touches with sharply cut jackets and sherwanis, high neck tunics and crisply cut trousers which gave men's wear a great fashion statement.

Krishna's women's wear was ultra feminine, as gently flowing empire line dresses were sensuously created from satin, silk and sheer textures in rich hues of red, royal blue, green, orange, earthy brown, antique gold and beige.

The garments for both the sexes reflected a gentle luxurious aura that had the perfect touches of style and substance.

Krishna achieved a beautiful blend of the east and west as her women's wear silhouettes were very occidental while for men's wear she was loyal to ethnic shapes with a few shirts and Jodhpur trousers thrown in.

There was that certain calm about Krishna's creations when ensembles like the red printed swing dress with embroidered yoke and sleeves, the bird print swing dresses, peach blue printed short kali dress with embroidered collar and placket with a tissue edged hemline and the Kenzo dresses glided down the ramp.

Krishna's prominent accessory for both sexes were wide ornate Zardosi belts, velvet/leather mojris and opaque stockings for women.

Krishna Mehta's look for the coming season was truly one of gentle beauty and refined designing which had universal appeal.
