Hema, Esha add glamour at Lakme Fashion WeekAugust 19th, 2011 - 10:40 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Aug 19 (IANS) Bollywood actresses Hema Malini and Esha deol raised the mercury on the third day Friday of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2011 when the mother-daughter duo strutted down the ramp in creations designed by Shyamal and Bhumika.
While Hema was wearing a maroon saree with part velvet, part brocade layers, daughter Esha sported a highly-embellished lehenga choli of the same colour.
“I have never worn such a lovely saree. It looks like Kanjivaram but it’s lighter with hand woven brocade work. The idea was to canvas the golden era,” Hema, 62, told reporters after the show.
The designers were elated to have the mother-daughter duo for the show.
“It’s amazing to have Esha and Hemaji here to showcase the line. Esha is wearing a silk velvet ghagra and it has heavy zardosi hand embroidery. We specialise in hand embroidery, that’s what Shyamal and Bhumika are known for. We have done lots of hand works with contrasting colours; that’s our forte,” Bhumika said.
The collection was inspired by the age-old Jamaas, Chogaas, Peshwas, Achkans and Kaidar Lehengas of the 17th century. The lines include some streamline sherwanee jackets teamed with gorgeous skirts sensuous cholas worn over avant grade Kalidaar lehengaas, floor sweeping Anarkalees, elongated yokes and kurtees.
Jewel-toned colours like ruby wine, sunlight cream, nile blue, honey gold, aurora red, burnt orange, pale gold, lilac rose, peacock green were predominant in the collection.
