Sonaakshi Raaj Created the Glamour of Style at Usha Talent Box

Mumbai, Saturday, August 4, 2012: Sonaakshi Raaj teased and tantalised all, with her collection titled “Old Cinema Glamour” inspired from old Hollywood films.

The collection showcased regal formal wear comprising glamorous gowns and cocktail dresses with the silhouettes being a ravishing blend of feminine flow with sleek structure.

With a colour palette boasting nude shades such as blush, ivory, and charcoal, in luxurious materials such as organza, tulle, as well as other sheer fabrics, the designer infused free flowing forms with tight bodices sporting rich, elegant floral work; while cut out backs added a dash of oomph.

Some pieces also ranged from crisp collared tops to flouncy, flirty skirts; thus further elevating the soft, sensuous appeal of this range.

Keeping it simple, the pieces did not flaunt any hard embellishments, focusing on the beautiful paradox of simplicity within careful construction.

Not afraid to add an experimental touch, Sonaakshi Raaj stirred things up with a refreshing red hot dress with graceful sleeves.

Ethereal and timeless, this collection is sure to have you smitten.

Neha Sharma Showed Her Creativity for a Wearable Collection at Usha Talent Box

 Neha Sharma showcased an enticing collection titled “Jambalaya on the Bayou” under her label, ‘The Jade Tree’.

The range showcased regal, rich pieces most of which were stand alone statement pieces that included an array of necklaces, bejewelled sleek belts, earrings and brooches.


A range of stones cut in different patterns and colours, ranged from shades of orange, blue and white were artistically placed on rich velvet, all tied up at the back with a vibrant coloured bow.

Most of the pieces were asymmetrically cut, allowing for the casual and gradual ‘branching out’ of the embellishments to give each a surreal, naturalistic appeal.

Two of the most notable design features were black gold outlined 3D flowers, as well as a statement piece comprising long gold tentacle-like protrusions.

With her enigmatic and bold collection, Neha Sharma truly showed us that sometimes it’s not just your outfit that does all the talking but these wonderful crown jewels!

 Sofake intrigues and shocks all with its new collection titled, ‘Black Velvet’. A take on a controversial topic –that of fairness creams, the designers Sapna Bhavani and Sukriti Grover made a strong and bold statement, ‘Black is beautiful so embrace it’.

The all black collection comprised intriguing black on black prints incorporated on structured forms. Power shoulder jumpsuits and vixen dresses were some of the pieces which helped project the mood of the collection – mysterious, daring, beautiful and dangerous.

Fabrics such as silk, velvet and jacquard helped build the sleek and structured bodies, accentuated by simple metal detailing such as eyelets and cut outs.

Use of see-through fabric helped to add a feminine touch to the range while a cape-like top injected an experimental spark.

One of the most striking features of the collection was its distinct blend of Victorian prints with Asian concepts such as the Obe-belt.

Edgy, feisty and yet sophisticated this collection by Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover is for a diva who likes to make a statement.
