Designer Shehla Khan provides handy tips and trends for the upcoming festive season. Shehla feels dramatic statements in colours are good but bright and soft pastel shades will add the perfect balance to your festive look. Colours which will stand out this season are champagne pink, fuchsia, faded red, mint green, black and baby blue and can be teamed with light breathable fabrics such as chiffon, georgette and crochet lace.
Beautiful embroideries and embellishments can be splayed across giving a playful yet feminine look. Opt for flowing anarkalis with a subtle highlight of badla work or Chikan anarkalis and shadow saris which can be worn for the perfect day look. Transparent sheer and opaque silk ornate with vintage floral patterns appliquéd or embroidered make superb evening outfits.
Shehla also presents her own pret line, a wide array of ethnic wear which includes stylish cocktail saris and anarkalis with aesthetic embroidery. “My collection is light and easy to wear keeping in mind the sensibilities of the fashion conscious woman for the season ahead. The line has something for everyone be it for a day event or an evening out , ” says Shehla Khan.
