Model-turned-actress Koena Mitra, soared the mercury of Rajat K Tangri show at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW), kissing the designer on the ramp, for whom she was the showstopper.
‘Rajat and I are very close and it’s a great feeling. Rajat has always made very creative and stunning outfit for me. This is something that I would always want to keep my wardrobe. It’s a very special day Rajat and I am happy that I am here today,’ Koena told IANS after the show.
The collection showcased at the show, was inspired by Victorian era and the designer has used thick fabric to make them fit for both autumn and winter.
‘The inspiration actually came from Victorian era when it was time for sexy, stylish silhouette. Like you have seen the entire collections have lots of exaggerated silhouettes with feminine stuff. That was the whole structured look.
‘Basically when it comes to evening wear, you could see, there were jackets, tops which were fully embellished, the fabrics you will find were very very thick. I have used like heavy fabrics and obviously with gowns there are no season,’ said Rajat.
When asked what made him choose Koena as his showstopper, Rajat said, ‘Koena is one of the most stylish people I have dressed up. She has got an amazing body and she looks stunning in fitted silhouettes. Normally, someone who is not that confident about her body might feel little conscious about the frills around the waste area. She is really fit and I thought that she is one who could really carry it best.’
