A few days back I got a chance to attend a unique fashion preview that was attended by the well heeled of Delhi and went much beyond the obvious glitz and Glam.
Soltee by Sulakshana Monga celebrated their Store anniversary in association with a NGO Abhinandan; Supporting Acid Victim Attacks at Olive Bar & Kitchen One Style Mile, Mehrauli, New Delhi. Sulakshana Monga showcased a glimpse of her latest Capsule collection along with the four Acid Attack Victims. Actor Urvashi Rautela was the show stopper for Capsule Collection and the jewellery was by Hazoorilal Legacy. Sulakshana Monga’s collections have always been surreal and yet quiet stunning and this one was no different. High on style and substance, this was an evening that brought together the city’s glitterati for a good cause.
I spotted Miss Universe 2015 Noyonita Lodh, Fashion Designer Tarun Tahiliani, DCP Sanjay Bhatia, Praveen goel, Ramesh Narang, Ramola bachchan, Sunil Sethi, Samar Hamid (Director of Hamdard university), Kajoli, Kitty Kalra, Sonal Jindal, Interior Designer Parull Mahaajan and the camaradarie in the fraternity was very refreshing and positive.
In this collection, Sulakshana Monga has revived and reinterpreted latest Zardozi handwork in an unexpected way. The rich, decadent detail of old luxurious paintings is set against the vintage silhouettes. A color return to the living rooms of the 1970’s, reclaiming the avocado green; Orchid & mint was also a big part in this collection. It is the vision of spring/early summer wedding and has pretty undertones of vintage style. Sulakshana Monga ensures that she does something unique and creative with her designs and outfits, that makes her stand out from rest of the bandwagon.
Her designs and silhouettes are contemporary and yet rooted to our heritage and culture. She recreates the princess look with her royal imagination to make sure that each piece has an identity to boast of.
Over drinks and some great food, I along with my fellow bloggers had a swell time at the event. Truly food for the mind and soul this one would be, considering that it was all for a noble cause. Do check out her latest collection at her exclusive store in Mehrauli and be ready to feast on grandeur.
