Last week, we told you that the well-known television star, Aashka Goradia, will be attending the International Emmy Awards as a juror and will be officially representing India on a global platform at the awards.
We also wondered what she would wear on the red carpet. We were delighted when designers Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar sent us a sketch of the ensemble they have designed for Aashka.
They tell us, “We have designed an ensemble that is an interesting combination of a western gown and an Indian saree to make for an exotic silhouette.
Since Aashka has nice broad shoulders, we thought of accentuating them by making her wear a corset with a peplum. The peplum gives a structured, modern and futuristic look to the garment. Indian floral hand embroidery adds dimension and detailing to the corset while vertical lines are embroidered on the peplum.
We decided to keep the look understated yet glamorous enough for the red carpet. Hence we chose a colour palette of stark black and white as opposed to using bright colours.”
