Kangna Ranaut turns designer for Vero Moda Marquee

I am glad that Vero Moda chose style icon Kangna Ranaut to design their new AW, 15 collection. Now high-street fashion will get the crisp style cue from our very own fashionista and Bollywood actress Kangna who is known for her quirky sense of fashion.

Kangana Ranaut, who is very excited to have designed the collection with VERO MODA said, “My fashion philosophy is to follow my mood for the day and is about what makes me feel good. I’m not a follower of fashion trends, instead I make my own rules and this collection does exactly that. I’m happy that this collection is inspired by my very own personal style. Unlike most occasion wear which is very one-dimensional – we’ve tried to stay away from the traditional and explored different hues, silhouettes and textures.”

The MARQUEE by Kangana Ranaut AW’15 collection has five distinct lines:

  1. Dandelion Dreams – A dreamy collection in wasabi and cream hues with botanical design elements, artfully crafted beaded embroidery in a buffet of diffused dandelion design patterns.
  2. Deep Lake – Inspired by the colors of a deep lake, this line embraces black tones, enlivened by shots of true emerald and deep teal
  3. Red Velvet – Red velvet is a classic line with all pieces being very dramatic, accentuated with lace and embroidered in rich florals. The color palette is centered on black and red
  4. Royal EnchantmentInspired by royalty, this collection flaunts a rich mix of silver and royal blue in interesting geometric patterns
  5. Gold Rush Inspired by the ‘Midas touch’, this collection sweeps golden hues into its mix, giving a metallic twist to the all over metallic gold fashion

European high-street fashion brand VERO MODA launched the 2nd edition of MARQUEE Autumn Winter ’15, a limited edition collection designed by Kangana Ranaut at a glitzy fashion evening attended by the crème de la crème of Mumbai at Mehboob Studio, Bandra. The collection was presented on the runway through a splendid fashion show with the lovely Kangana Ranaut herself as the show-stopper. The actress looked absolutely stunning in a halter neck printed dress from the collection. Supermodel Ujjwala Raut made a rare appearance and opened the show in a strappy number.

Renowned fashion name and stylist, Anaita Shroff Adajania created distinct looks for the gorgeous models who walked the ramp in a well-coordinated fashion show. The fashion show was followed by a grand celebration.

I liked the ivory and blue collection better than the bold red and black collection. But again it’s a personal choice. Apart from the collection, I liked Richa Chadda’s monochrome skater dress that she wore to the event.
