LFW Winter/Festive 2014: Ragini Ahuja created metallic magic on the ramp


After her debut in the Gen Next show during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013 with origami garments, Ragini Ahuja’s collection for the “Ikai” label during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 was an interesting line called “Metal”.

Bringing in linear geometry, Ragini worked with appliquéd sheep nappa to recreate the beauty of flora and fauna along with brass strips. Yet Ragini’s fabric base was a little fragile, as sheer Chanderi and cottons were the choice for strong fashion statements. In addition, the exquisite marbled effect of metallic colours with oxblood and gold hints gave the garments a New Age touch.

The look was very relaxed with a marked laid back androgynous message, as boyfriend shirts, oversized bomber jackets, muscle tank dresses and athletic leather bustiers made an impressive appearance on the ramp.

The metallic alphabet appliqués appeared prominently for the garments, while the over shirts spelt comfort all the way. Interesting entries were the short leather top, long printed sheath topped with leather appliqué, a soft cover over a tube dress, striking black mini with loose pants, brown shirt and kimono top with tonal detailing.

The solitary men’s wear entry comprised soft blouson with a bold metallic appliqué and easy trousers.

Mention must be made of the striking thick wedges, which once again had metallic words fixed on the base.

Ragini Ahuja assured that each piece from her “Metal” collection was an exclusive one, thus giving the buyer an edge when it comes to wearing her creations in a crowded room.
