Designers Prriya & Chintan, known for their exquisite and vibrant creations, presented a new Festive Collection that is predominantly Indian with a western flair in the silhouettes.
With a fashion show in New York (Long Island) at the Marriott Hotel under the aegis of the Nargis Dutt Memorial Foundation on August 25th.
In their signature style of intricate workmanship and wellcrafted silhouettes, Prriya & Chintan unveiled a collection of Evening Dresses with a lot of drape and flow, ornate lehengas, pre-stitched saris that can be worn differently and kurtas/tunics with distinct modern styles. Walking the ramp in a stunning green and red Anarkali style kurta was none other than Vidya Balan.
Present for the show were Kumar Gaurav and Trishala Dutt. Prriya & Chintan also showcased their new collection of precious jewellery designed by them. Precious beads clasped with gold and diamonds, chunky bracelets paired with earrings and several versatile pieces in the collection which can be paired with any look and at the same time can make a statement of their own, were showcased here.
Prriya said, “Vidya Balan walked the ramp in an outfit specially created for her as an extension to our new festive collection. It’s an emerald green kalidaar outfit with antique gold embellishment and a touch of ruby red. She also wore a pair of long antique earrings specially designed for her with polkis and rubies.”
After her demise, Nargis’s husband, the late Sunil Dutt, established the Nargis Dutt Memorial Foundation and through various projects worked to keep Nargis’s dream alive. Today, the Nargis Dutt Memorial Foundation is involved in improving and upgrading medical care and treatment of all persons, improving the care and education of handicapped children in or from the Indian subcontinent, and providing financial support for the training and education of the staff necessary to carry out the above.
Chintan concluded by saying, “It is a matter of immense honour and pleasure for us to be a part of this fundraising show. We are delighted that Vidya is walking the ramp for us. We hope this show helps the foundation meet its aims.”
