Audiences were awestruck as sultry Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley walked the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) ramp for fashion designer Varun Bahl. “Varun is very talented, in fact the right word for him is ‘creator’. I have landed in Delhi from London this morning just for his show, to support him,” Celina said Saturday.
The show “Unpredictable – A Tribute by Bahl for Essenza Di Wills” was conceptualized to reflect the designers’ happy state of mind.
“My collection has loads of bright colours and is very young,” Bahl told IANS after the show.
The palette had colours like smoky lilac, lime green, ivory, dirty green, blue, deep pink and yellows.
“He has extensively used green in the line, which is my favourite colour, as it is symbolic of the season spring and life,” added Celina.
Fabrics like net, muslin, linen and crepe were used to design A-line dresses with fitted sleeves and paired with shorts or pants.
“I love the outfit he has designed for me. No doubt a celebrity steals the show. And why not? People associate themselves with celebrities and adapt their style and it gives more publicity to the designer and the collection,” said Celina.
The show ended with models walking the ramp in black outfits and flower gear heads after a visual tribute to fashion critic Isabella Blow.
