Delhi-based Designer Rajdeep Ranawat presented the pre-finale women-wear show for this season with Lakme. The collection is inspired by the beauty of Ubud, Bali. Rajdeep Ranawat, lowered his bucket of search in deep wells of Ubud where he was inspired by the vintage textiles and motifs of the Indonesian fabrics in pure silks, satin and duping apart from the heritage and crafts that Bali as a country is so well known for.
Actress Amyra Dastur, shares her experience with Rajdeep Ranawat by saying, “It’s one of the most innovative collections I’ve seen, because of his modern twists on traditional Indian wear. I’m so glad I got the chance of associating with Rajdeep for his beautiful Resort Spring line inspired by Ubud – Bali. It made me feel like a fiery Balinese Goddess with the bright red hues of color and added headgear for some fun drama on the ramp. I genuinely cannot wait to see what his future shows and collections have to offer.”
The look was completed with meticulously crafted accessories for the collection which were in collaboration with Ritika Sachdeva for jewellery, 5 Elements by Radhika Gupta for footwear and The Garnish Co. by Geetanjali Singh for handbags.
Hand embroideries have been added with french knots, beads, mother of pearls and shells apart from the latest innovations in Swarovski lacquer effects by using stones in warm hues of reds, greys, blues, and greens.
“It is inspired by the Balinese culture which is more heritage and craft-oriented. Amyra was the epitome of my collection, she seemed to fit in as the perfect muse for the collection. I, thank Amyra for doing justice to it and being the perfect Balinese Goddess.” says Designer Rajdeep Ranawat.
