Moonlight Collection: Bringing Back the Monochrome Trend
The recently held Indian Fashion Runway Week, 2017, saw designer Mithi Kalra launch her all-new Moonlight Collection to a fashion runway packed with patrons, design enthusiasts and fashion pundits at Delhi’s Thyagaraj Sport Complex.
As models swayed on to the head ramp and walked back in synchronized steps to peppy beats, the crowd was transported to a space where moons and stars from the cosmos captivated everyone present with celestial serenity and tranquillity. Drawing inspiration from the moon and stars, Kalra elaborated on her collection saying, “Moonlight came to me almost naturally as I had always been fascinated with the purity and sanctity that is attached to the moon and stars and the magic we all have believed in from our very childhoods.”
“And the monochrome trend is something I feel, even though in vogue from long, was in a need for some reinvention. So, I decided to play with somewhat sensual cuts and patterns on delicate yet easily wearable fabrics, as is apparent in my designs for this year’s fashion runway,” Kalra said in a statement.
Her collection revives the monochrome trend in a novel avatar through planetary elements of the universe in her clothes. Her fashion is fresh and innovative yet wearable and affordable. She gives a hint of smart fashion through gowns and dresses that come complete with pockets!
For Kalra the biggest accomplishment is to see her clients don her designs. “When I see people sporting my fashion and out there in the real world, that is when I feel that I have actually made it right” she beams.
For the show stopper dress, Kalra retained the undeniable grandeur of black, giving her ‘spotlight design’ the spark it demands. The princess gown is a vision in black, perfect for any formal occasion, with all the glam and glitter it could have had in just the right places with bold low cut frame at the back and a very unique classy front-cut.
Sporting flattering cuts at the neck and mid-section, her line includes short party dresses, flowing ball gowns and full-length cocktail dresses.
The designer is an alumnus of the National Institute of Fashion Technology.
