Mandira & Rehane show romantic and luxury line for S/S

Sep '09
Mandira Wirk and Rehane presented pure western wear for S/S 2010 at LFW

Perfect Spring/Summer 2010 fabrics like linen, organza, silk, jersey and chiffons were the basis for Mandira Wirk's collection at Lakme Fashion Week. Called “Humble Luxe” the garments had a colour story that ranged from touches of inky smudges, tea stains and faded rust for women's wear that had were stylish and elegant.

The utterly feminine fabrics were turned into some very international looking styles. With laser cutwork as her forte, Mandira created the most stylish western wear with that elegant resort wear touch. One shoulder minis, body hugging jersey halters, draped skirts and bodices, stylish cropped pants with striking flap detailing - the look was very well conceived and presented. The stunners where the sheer printed colour blocked tunic, the very innovative hooded draped silk jersey top teamed with cropped pants, the lapel neckline textured shift with a waist coat and the scrunch effect halter top with wrap skirt.

The detailing that made an impact was the use of zippers for not only to hold the dress together but also as embellishment, as it appeared all over the dresses and glittered under the lights. The finale was show stopping Celeb Maliaka Arora Khan glided down the ramp in a slinky orange draped goddess gown with gold detailing. Once again Mandira Wirk scored with an utterly hot selling collection on either side of the globe.

It was a summer of love for Rehane at Lakme Fashion Week with dresses that were feminine and pretty in silk, organza, jacquard and chiffon in shades of off white, yellow, grey, red, cream with the most delicate cut and shell work and sparkling diamantes. Titled “Looks Like Love”, Rehane assured that the collections had all the trimmings and colours that go with the theme of the line. Restricting her designing skills to a short frothy dress collection with embroidery of different varieties on the garments; Rehane's look was not only pretty but had that cute trendy element.

Embroidery was the focal point of the gathered, layered,minis, tubes, micro shorts and tops as the rose motif and laser cut work appeared on hemlines, neck, belts, yokes, skirts and bodices. Colours ranged from cream to rose, white, salmon pink, grey, red and blue for chiffon, organza and lots of tiny checks in red and white. In a collection that resembled a beautiful garden of colourful blooms; the ensembles that made a great impact were the cream to yellow shell neck organza dress with rose embroidery and mukeish belt, the baby pink sari dress with white cutwork, the double tone organza dress with navy/grey embellishments and the really arresting all red cutwork shift with quilted collar. The red and white checked section was more casual in nature but with ornate work. The final three white minis with raised work were a perfect end to a vibrant collection that will earn Rehane numerous compliments.
