Deepika Padukone, Kiran Rao, Dino Morea to walk the ramp for Vikram Phadnis
The Bollywood celebs are all set to dazzle on the runway at the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week 2013
Deepika Padukone, Kiran Rao and Dino Morea will be seen wearing outfits designed by Vikram Phadnis at the Lakme Fashion Week 2013 which starts on March 22. We hear some of the most happening Bollywood celebs will be working their mojo on the ramp – some for promoting the USP of the designer and some for a cause. So hotshot B-town stylist Vikram Phadnis has come up with this very cool idea for LFW. He has tied up with NGO Swades Foundation and his collection, we hear, will be inspired by the kind of clothes people wear in the rural areas of Maharashtra. The designer has travelled around the state – mainly around Ratnagiri and Raigad to do his research. It seems he wants to break the stereotype that his creations can only be jazzy, vibrant stuff. By showcasing the rustic fashion, Phadnis wants to prove that fashion is prevalent all over – be it on the cluttered streets of Mumbai or the rickety roads of Raigad.
The other celebs who are expected at the show are writer Chetan Bhagat, the Kai Po Che team – Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav, choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant, model-turned-actor Dia Mirza et al. Sounds like it’s going to be quite a show, right?
