Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2010 - Preview - VJ Balhara

Winter Festive 2010. I love the title. It has such a celebratory sound to it.And what is a Fashion Week, if not a celebration of the styles, trends, fabrics and colors of the season! And as the city gears up for the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2010, it’s time to preview some of my favorite designers’ upcoming collections. And I couldn’t think of anyone better then VJ Balhara to start the Lakme Fashion Week previews with. His last collection, “Borala Nautch” had the fashionistas sit up and take notice of the young and talented designer. No stranger to the glamourous world of fashion, VJ, an ex supermodel, shows an inherent knack for combining the edgy with the traditional. And with his first ever bridal collection ready to set the runway ablaze, this designer is all set to make a transition from “emerging designers” to “established designers”.

On 19th September, VJ will show his collection, “Bridal Renaissance”. Using his signature technique of blending the traditional, rural Indian Chic with opulent urban sensibilities, VJ aims to use his collection to revive “Mashru Silk’ , a centuries old luxury fabric hand woven by weavers of Gujarat. The flamboyant styles of Indian Maharaajas will find common grounds with the relaxed bohemian spirit of the rural Indian women in this intricately embellished collection. Adorned with the semi precious stones from Rajasthan, Zardozi , Cut Daana Work, and Karchobe work, the collection is much-awaited by hordes of VJ fans. Watch this space to see the collection as it unfolds on the runway.
