The Bong bombshell, dressed in yellow gold saree, set the ramp on fire
Actress Konkona Sen Sharma put her best fashion foot forward when she hit the ramp Thursday in a metallic sari with yellow-gold and rust-gold blocking teamed with a gold metallic blouse as a showstopper for designer Anavila Mishra at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) winter-festive 2014.
The sari, part of the designer’s collection Mohenjo Daro, was draped like a dhoti. With minimal make-up and with a bronze neck piece, the Page 3 actress looked stunning.
She was thrilled and said, “I am not really closely associated with Lakme but I am very fond of Anavila’s collections. I admire her work and her collections go with my sensibilities.”
“Her collections are subtle and rustic, which is inspired from history. I am feeling great wearing this.”
Mohenjo Daro was a blend of saris with shirt blouses, lose kurtis and more with techniques like block printing. The highlight was the handwork done on the hand-woven textiles. The block printing and ikat gave prominence to the Indus motifs.
Ajrak printing was an important aspect of the collection and to create a rustic look, she used over-dyeing and printing.
