LFW: Ami, Junelia showcase collection
Ami Grewal, under her label Raven + Rose presented a glamorous and edgy collection titled 'On the Rocks' at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.
Inspired by nature as well as the rush of city life, the designer showcased silhouettes, which were feminine yet subtly, structured and comprised short dresses, gowns, kaftans and cover ups.
Luxurious fabrics like jersey and silk chiffons were tailored to perfection to complement and contour the body, embellished with large motifs, feathers, beads and sequins to give off a sophisticated tribal feel.
Keeping the colour palette fresh, bold hues of green, black, pink, orange, yellow, and peach gave the collection a funky-chic touch while tones of beige and cream worked to add a charming vintage appeal. To show the versatility of the collection, a gorgeous two-way black dress with a large opulent peacock feather embellished in sequins graced the ramp.
Meanwhile, Junelia Aguiar Chandler showcased an alluring and vivacious collection titled 'Constructed' for her debut at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.
For this versatile collection, which aimed at being perfect for any occasion - from Red Carpet to high tea, trendy office wear to swanky nightclub, the designer used signature, classic shades such as dusky grey, smoky white, bold black, plum, and also incorporated softer tones such as salmon pink, mint blue, metallic gold and red. The silhouettes stuck to the clean cut appeal of the collection and comprised dresses, trousers, coats, tops, skirts, gowns and jumpsuits.
Keeping in mind the opulent tone of the collection, fabrics such as lace, crepe, kupro, satin, silk taffeta, Dupion silk, silk organza, textured Lycra, tulle and quilted silk were gorgeously embellished with 3D organza beads, Swarovski crystals, pearls and glass bead embroidery.
The showstopper of her collection was model/actress Diana Penty, who stepped onto the ramp in a fairytale inspired black and white off-shoulder gown with crystal work at the waist.
