Designer duo Monica & Karishma showcased their collection themed New age women and keeping in tune with their theme, they roped in model-turned-actress Lisa Haydon as their show stopper and she impressed with her glamour quotient. Donning a long sleeveless dress with golden work and peach coloured cut work across the dress, Lisa looked as glamorous as ever while taking a walk.
Talking about the collection Monica said: "All our garments are free-flowing and represent today's women. Our collection has a vibe of 1960s with the glamour of the roaring 1920s.
There is a subtle nonchalance in combining the best of the two decades in fashion." Long skirts and dresses with glitter and embellishment inspired by the 1920s defined the silhouettes and the duo played well with pastel shades such as blush and dreamy grey accented by a dash of vivid pink.
Driven by a passion for ethnic exuberance on the fashion freeway, Monica Shah & Karishma Swali launched their line in 2008, and christened it 'JADE'. What followed was a whirlwind of romance with lush fabrics, sensual cuts and elaborate layers.
Today, Jade is recognized for modern sensibilities rooted in rich tradition of Indian heritage, literature and artisanal expertise. Figure–flattering gowns, elegant saris, stunning anarkalis and bespoke lehengas define their collection that travel through both time and space, to present something that never was.
Having amassed long experience in international fashion for two decades, there was the yearning to chart a different course. JADE is the culmination of this yearning, and was established in 2008.
