Kareena Kapoor khan walked as showstopper for designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil to resonate women empowerment for women who inspired change in the society. Her regal walked gracefully captured the essence of Shantanu and Nikhil’s Recruit collection in a matt black long slit tube dress at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer Resort 2019. The collection encompassed gowns, leather jackets, dresses, bandhgala and sarees.
The duo put an androgynous spin to their design and exquisitely played power dressing with padded shoulders, eccentric drapes along with dramatic capes, and leather belts. The duo artistically brought in a collection that salutes inspiring strong women, who resisted injustice against women, broken down every wall of stereotypes that held them captive and boldly walked towards their dreams with an unapologetic attitude.
Their bold and riveting design ensembles namely bandhgala and padded shoulder will be fascinating pieces to see in a corporate wardrobe. As the design trickles down, it might just bring back the nostalgic layering of drapes along with it.
