New Delhi:

Monisha Jaising will bring down the curtains at this year's Winter Festive edition of Lakme Fashion Week 2018.

Known for designs with rich craftsmanship that blend Indian culture and heritage, Jaising will close the fashion week with her 'Shades of a Diva' collection.

The clothing line is inspired by the designer's passion for art, music and modern architecture.

Jaising says she is elated to be a part of the fashion extravaganza, which is the ideal platform for her to showcase her philosophy.

"My association with Lakme Fashion Week goes years back to when the concept of fashion weeks was nascent in the country. Hence, it holds a very special place for me and now even more so with me being the Lakme Absolute Grand Finale designer.

"This season, my collection is inspired by Lakme's theme - Shades of a Diva and I'm ecstatic that my signature style and my design philosophy have perfect synergy with this theme. Lots of evening glamour, shine, attitude and colour is what you can expect from the Finale. The show also comes with a lot of fun surprises which you will know only closer to the D-day," the couturier said in a statement.

The finale will be grand in every sense of the word as the fraternity will see designs created with dazzling hues and unique drapery as the perfect mix of glamour and boldness. 

Fashion connoisseurs will see the use of precious elements and colourful fabrics in both, muted like sweet lilac and bold like peacock green, palettes. The embroidery is inspired by global art to complement the show's finale theme.

The theme, 'Shades of a Diva', promises to appeal to the diverse personalities, moods and attitudes of Indian women.

Ashwath Swaminathan, Head of Innovations, Lakme added they are looking forward to collaborating with Jaising.
