Bollywood actors don fusion couture at Mumbai fashion week

Mumbai, Mar 24 (ANI): Fashion aficionados got a dose of Bollywood on the second day of the ongoing fashion week in Mumbai on Saturday.

Bollywood actors Shahid Kapur and Arjun Kapoor walked the ramp for designer Kunal Rawal in haute couture for the urban male.

Donning a jacket and crisp trouser Kapur emanated style and looked every bit of his modish personality.

Kapur praised Kunal's collection that mainly showcased western wear comprising of smartly cut out jackets and pants that added to a series of Indian wear ensemble, like kurta and achkans.

"I really love his sense of style. I think he is doing some very interesting, new stuff which I think would excite the younger generation. I think he is here to express himself, he is not scared to go out there and try something different and something new, even though he is doing a lot of main stream films he is still experimenting with stuff that you have not seen before in movies," he said.

"And I think that is what the future is all about, we need to reinvent our self, we need to go out there and do stuff which people have not seen before. I think he is combing and managing Bollywood, Hindi films and fashion very well together. I think he has a very bright future ahead of him, so I am very proud of him and very happy walking for him today. He is also a very great friend," he added.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Karishma Kapoor added sheer elegance to the ramp while walking for her designer friend Shehla Khan.

Kapoor dazzled in a powder pink Chantilly dress made of lace and chiffon with gunmetal embroidery.

The collection comprised of dresses and long sequined gowns in the colour palette of pink and skin muted shaded for chic minded urban women.

The second day of the fashion week also saw the Indian debut of India born American designer Naeem Khan, who has dressed the likes of U.S First Lady Michelle Obama and Hollywood A- listers like Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez.

Khan's ensemble displayed sequined dresses for evening parties and fusion couture like 'ball gown sari' designed for the new age Indian woman with a hint of traditional values.

Thrilled about his debut in Indian fashion, Khan seemed ecstatic and emotional for him it was more of home coming.

"For me this was the biggest thing, like I said earlier, I was afraid, just anxious, not afraid that my collection is not good or anything as such but just because it means a lot to me being in India because it is like going home, you want to prove to your parents and to your brothers and sisters that what you do- like look at me what I have done. It meant a lot to me that way," said Khan. (ANI)
