Actress Geeta Basra was recently in the news for her alleged relationship with Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, enjoyed walking the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) as the showstopper for designer duo Parvesh and Jai.
“It was a fantastic experience walking the ramp for them. The garment was so nice and light that I really loved sporting it. You feel nervous when you are on the ramp and worry about malfunctioning or tripping off, but thankfully all went well,” Basra told reporters after the show.
She walked the ramp in a maroon lehenga and green choli.
Geeta made her Bollywood debut with “Dil Diya Hai” (2006) and also featured in “The Train: Some Lines Should Never Be Crossed…” (2007) – both opposite Hindi movies’ serial kisser Emraan Hashmi.
Parvesh said: “It was wonderful to get her as a showstopper. She is very nice by heart and very down to earth and carried it very well so it was pleasant working with her.”
The duo’s collection, inspired by flora and fauna, is called “Rural Species”.
“Our collection is inspired by nature, animals, birds and fish. Our collection is for those who have really travelled the world and then go to a remote village in India to spend some time there. The prints have fish, elephants, trees and birds and elements, which are very rural,” said Parvesh.
Their collection comprises loose gowns and they have used with hand print applique work and hand embroidery. One striking feature of their collection was that most of the garments were transparent.
“This resort couture collection is for powerful women who dare to experiment, love to flaunt their feminity, break the norms and above all, love to live to the fullest,” said the Delhi-based Parvesh.
