We frequently come across speeches on women empowerment. Every time I hear one, I often wonder do women really need to be empowered or are they already self-sufficient in that aspect? Gone are the days of women sufferings as Women have evolved into being bold, independent and ones who achieve what they aim for, hence why should their outfits speak otherwise?
Sulakshna Monga caters to those women who are fearless with western sensibilities embedded in Indian ethos – modern age Women as I would describe them. The unconventional designs that seek modesty in their approach help women experiment the silhouettes of their outfits with modern tailoring and use of fabrics and patterns only seen on the International runways. The label introduces Indian couture house to distinctive styles with their fusion work in luxury.
The latest collection ‘The Cultural Cascade’ owns hues of red, green to gold and dull pink adorned with embroidery that is native to India – Nakshi and Dabka along with sequins, swarovski, ghunghroo, frill, feathers, raffia and lace. The collection holds nothing back and hence offers something to everyone from the mother of the bride to the sister of the bride, friends and the bride herself.
My first look combines all different elements that are trending currently on the runways, in a modern cut that conveys luxury. The red saree gown bridges the gap between modern and conventional and a piece that is a must have in your shopping bag as it can be adorned for any function and can be added to your bridal trousseau trunk.
My second look romances between old European fashion that taps into the rich cultural legacy of India. The sharp cuts, bold shoulder pads and elegant embellishments ooze a sensual charm. The piece portrays individuality but rooted in mystery with its unique elements that gives it a global style. It is a renewed take on tonal dressing from the underlining shimmer lurex fabric to the frills adding layers at the bottom giving you height to the leaf cutouts that turn into an outfit train for that eye catching entry at any function.
