Designer Ridhi Mehra has completed five years in the
fashion industry. To mark the milestone, she has roped in actress Pooja Hegde to
walk for her as a showstopper at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2018
Her collection will be titled Cinco which, according to the designer, will be a melange of cultural accents which Pooja is going to present.
The collection will showcase an amalgamation of five different cultures that have shaped her past collections, namely Islamic, Indian, Spanish, French and Chinese, said a statement.
Elements like Spanish open jackets and fringed shoulder epaulettes juxtaposed with delicate French flared sleeves and Islamic motifs are mirrored using Indian drapes and indigenous embroideries.
The collection will also feature alluring Chinoiserie and Islamic prints. In keeping with the brand's ideology of innovation, it has played with bugle beads in a manner to create optical illusion-like embroideries and have also given gota fabric a contemporary update.
The five- day fashion week will start from January 31, here.
