FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week: Ranna Gill and the getaway girls


You just can’t go wrong with black … that may be true. But then there’s nothing quite like white with that bright look that fills you with joy and happiness. You felt so as you viewed Ranna Gill’s ‘The Getaway’ collection at the FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week that began with a wondrous white-on-white line and then moved on to other happy hues.

On view was the white palazzo with a moulded blouse, cutout summer dress and the swirling mini with billowing, dolman sleeves and deep rear neckline.

It was all very flirty and fun, filled with a romantic vibe just right for a luxury vacay with a trendy twist. Vibrant prints and sublime textures with signature Ranna Gill embroideries amalgamate to create a fantastical world of beauty, joy, luxury and adventure.

The beautiful cutout work on maxis and tunics was ideal for weekend partying, while the feminine shapes ensured that the ensembles would be timeless wardrobe additions. Working on a base of pure cotton, satin, linen and chiffon, Ranna’s versions of the tribal prints merged creatively with the textures.

The line with embroidered bodices for white, tiered, tulle skirts also had a feminine gown with cascading embellishments. There was a play of multi stripes for flouncy, gypsy style blouses and skirts, while off-shouldered midis and stringy tie-up back cholis brought a fun but festive element to the ensembles.

The girls in the film looked very animated and they were at one time spotted clinking glasses while sipping rose wine, very cheerful indeed!
