MUMBAI: Aditi Rao Hydari increased the glam quotient of designer Payal Singhal’s show at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) spring-summer 2015 when the actress walked as the showstopper here Friday.
Dressed in a silk high-waist black lehenga and blouse, she wowed the audience as she glided on the ramp.
The voluminous lehenga with leather embroidery on it and jacket choli appeared to be a heavy one, but Aditi said that it was light and “enjoyed wearing it”.
“It’s beautiful and feminine,” added the actress, who wore only a pair of leaf motif earrings as jewellery.
Singhal’s collection titled “Firdaus” is an ode to the enchanting Gulmarg valley in Kashmir.
“I wanted the beauty of valley to be shown here through my collection. When you go there, you feel calm but also feel sad as the people over there have been through so much,” said the designer.
She used extensive black colour for her collection that consisted of skirts, cigarette pants, kaftans, dhoti skirt in interesting motifs like pine cone and cyprus trees.
