Monisha Jaising is set to unfold her most colossal collection, “Opera” at the India Couture Week 2017 on 28th July at the Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi.
Starting from the 16th century, adolescent girls of the best society, with their fine silhouettes and jewels catching the light, have always resembled gorgeous portraits as they sit in their boxes at the Opera House. Inspired by the Opera, this collection harmonizes with the evolution of displaying one’s finery and the mesmerising dynamics of performance on stage.
Demonstrating the individuality of these fashion ensembles, the collection radiates elements of exuberant fabrics and airy silhouettes. The strong character and fragility of the Opera singer personifies the colour palette of each couture piece implementing a smooth transition from burgundy to rose pink and from metallics to ice blue.
The collection sets the stage with a theatrical variation of fabrics composed of lamé, velvet metallics, tulle, chikankari, Italian organza, banarasi, metallic satin and much more. With a dramatic ethnic flair infused with contemporary details, the assortment of pieces carry concept lehengas, evening dresses, cocktail saris, evening gowns, crop tops and ball skirts.
