Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif sashayed down the ramp at the grand finale of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WLIFW) for designer Rohit Bal, bringing down the curtains of the five-day event in style.
Dressed in an embroidered white sherwani, Kapoor Wednesday night managed to steal the hearts of many girls in the audience, who couldn’t stop gushing about the star’s chocolaty looks. Pretty Katrina Kaif, attired in a short white dress, looked like a Barbie doll.
“I was pretty nervous to face the stage with a veteran model like Katrina. The idea of walking the ramp with her made me go blank every time I thought of it. It was she who led me beautifully to the stage making me feel comfortable with her,” says Ranbir, who was here with Katrina to promote their film ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani‘ set for release on November 6.
Another highlight of the show was a live performance by Orissa’s Prince Dance Group that recently won the dance reality show “India’s Got Talent”.Since Bal is always associated with grandeur, the sets reflected flamboyance and style. The glass ramp had gold lotus flowers underneath. The main show area was draped with golden curtains.
Complementing the ambience perfectly were the clothes that talked about the Mughal era when India was the land of maharajas (kings).The collection was appropriately called Yasas, which means grand in Sanskrit.Talking about his collection, Bal said: “The collection is a reflection of incredible talent that we have in India in terms of artisans and craftsmanship. The line is an ode to India’s rich heritage.”
“It is about India, which was once known as the ‘Golden Peacock’. Through this line, I am bringing that golden era back to India,” he added.The collection had a mix of brocades, velvets in the pre-Mughal and Mughal designs like long and short anarkalis, sherwanis, jodhpuri pants, dresses and long coats.The collection will also be retailed through Wills Lifestyle outlets across India.
