Chandni Mohan’s label “Selvage” enthralled the spectators at LFW

A graduate of Nottingham Trent University, UK in 2010, Chandni Mohan’s label “Selvage” was a high end luxury line that created waves at the opening Gen Next show at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Combining effortlessly the concepts of simplicity and power dressing, Chandni based her collection, which was inspired by Preston Scott’s architecture; on crisp tailoring with hints of androgynous touches.

Working around a colour palette of black, white and red; the sharply cut angular boxy dresses, tunics, skirts and covers had asymmetric construction that spelt minimal elegance with maximum impact. Overlapping folds and geometric silhouettes added to the drama of the creations. The accompanying gold jewellery was a perfect match as cuffs, necklaces and earrings added to the look of the very stark but striking collection. The fabrics were Tencel, Satin Crepe polyester, crepe spandex with polyester, sand wash hammer satin and satin chiffons.

For an innovative style statement that makes an eye-catching entry, Chandni Mohan, offered a variety of options to the modern woman.
