Jacqueline Fernandez sizzles on ramp for Shehla Khan at Lakme Fashion Week 2013

She called her collection “Tale of the Unexpected”, when Shehla Khan, for her label “Shehlaa”, introduced a bold fairy tale fashion fantasy at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. Drawing inspirations from the many fairy tales she had adored in the past, the collection was a romantic melangé of Indian and Western creations. While the silhouettes were bold and daring there was an element of structure in the very feminine, graceful, regal outfits. The lineup of very stylish garments had the mix of varied textures along with the intricate artistic embroidery in classic black and gold, which gave an enduring, dreamy appeal to the collection.


Partial to tulle, Shehla added brocade, satin, lace and silk to complete the fragile fabric story. High voltage glamour came in the form of the opening black/red jumpsuit with bead work, followed by a tantalizing nude silk baby-doll covered with black net splashed with delicious strawberry motifs while 3D flowers added glitz to the red net mini.

Cutwork gave the silver embroidered skirt and tiny choli an ornate beauty. The beaded tasseled slim gown, will-power ivory midi sheath and net trail upped the style quotient. Beaded fringes appeared in layers and tiers for lehengas, gowns and minis, while sexy shorts or cigarette pants played hide and seek under tulle skirts.  The final lehengas worn with micro cholis were undoubtedly a very sensuous part of the show.

Stopping the presentation was the very gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez, star of “Murder 2” who looked stunning in a pale pink net lehenga with multi coloured painted floral bouquets and lace corset.


For Red Carpet glamour that will turn the wearer into the Belle of the Ball, Shehla Khan’s “Tale of the Unexpected” had just the right fashion elements.
