NAZIA RAHMAN
Runway Report
 

Nazia Rahman flew down from Bangladesh to showcase her luxury resort line at India Beach Fashion Week. ''It is a good platform to showcase my designs to an International audience. Inspired by Cleopatra, my vision is to showcase the last ruler of ancient Egypt dressed for a resort evening in this era… in ensembles that reflect her wealth, power and beauty.'' I was hooked from the time we spoke and couldn't wait to see how the theme would translate on the catwalk.

 

She did not disappoint. In recognition of that era, the designer showed skin-fit torso and fluid kimonos, glittering skirts cut to the thigh and cold-shoulder capes—all crafted with velvet and art silk embellished with gilded embroideries. However, the sari gowns, twinkling with gold sequins, were a resounding hit! Walking out of the showcase, I couldn't help thinking that creation is an act of resistance. We should resist the tediousness of the world, the sameness of fashion, and be ingenious.
