New Delhi, 15 March 2013 (IANS) A tribal woman moves to the city of lights - New York. Confidently, she looks forward to adapt the new lifestyle. She walks with poise and is ready to face the world. Designer Reynu Taandon beautifully narrated the story with her collection - Urban Goddess - at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2013 (WIFW) Autumn-Winter.
She unveiled her designs Friday and these were divided into two categories. Starting with the resort and casual wear, comprising loosely fitted silhouettes like kaaftans and kurtas, it then moved to elegant, sophisticated evening gowns.
While for the resort wear, Reynu played with lots of garden colours like shades of greens, reds, oranges, purples, yellows, blues, pinks and browns, for the evening wear she extensively used black and golden.
"I had the concept clear in my mind since the beginning. Also, I had gone to Paris recently. I have presented some of the creations there also. I have mostly used pure georgettes, velvets and nets. A lot of thread work has been done. The black evening gowns are embellished with gold leather leaves to indicate that the woman has not forgotten where she has come from!" said Reynu.
In her opinion, colours like peach and orange would be perfect for summer-spring season.
The prince range starts from Rs.15,000 and goes up to Rs.50,000 and beyond. The auditorium was packed with socialites and buyers who cheered and applauded throughout the show.
