Infusing fantasy and surreal concepts in this season’s Lakme Fashion Week, designer Shehla Khan introduced a deeper and bolder hued collection named – Tale of the Unexpected, which draws inspiration from the designer’s love of fairy tales.

On being the showstopper, Jacqueline Fernandez said, “Shehla is a sweet and soft spoken girl, this reflects in her clothes as well which are very feminine, very girly but also wearable and contemporary for all ages. Through Sonam (Kapoor) I got to know not only a wonderful designer but a beautiful person. I’m so thrilled to be her showstopper today. I feel like a modern day princess!”

Shehla’s B-town friends and clients were also present to cheer her – Kajol (dressed in a beautiful blue badla saree by Shehla), Ayan Mukerji, Kunal Rawal, Rhea Kapoor with her mother Sunita Kapoor, Anu Dewan, Avantika Malik, Madhu Nair, Maheep Kapoor, Sharmilla Khanna, Shaan Khanna, Zarine Khan, Shabina Khan and many more.

Khan showcased an array of structured looks, as she explains, “The silhouettes are rather bold, and an element of structure exists in almost every look, representing royalty along with contemporary feminine grace and regality”. The young designer has dressed some of Bollywood’s top fashionistas such as Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Malaika Arora Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Alia Bhatt to name a few.
